West Ham Sell Zamora and Pantsil

West Ham have sold Bobby Zamora and John Pantsil to Fulham for £6.3 million, a deal that could rise by a further £1m depending on appearances. Zamora has signed a four year deal with the west London club, whilst Pantsil has signed for three.

West Ham fan Zamora joined the Irons in January 2004. His winning goal in the 2005 play-off final and his obvious passion for the club made Zamora a firm favourite with the fans.

Judging by the comments on this site and on other West Ham fan sites it seems that many fans think that £6.3 million represents good business for West Ham.

I think the club has made a mistake here, given the inexperience of Sears,the only recent coming to form of Cole, and the injury prone nature of Bellamy and Dyer. I also think that given the unsatisfactory performance of Neill ,and the versatility of Pantsil ,it wud have been wiser to keep Pantsil. On top of the mistake in letting Solano go.

i can think of an army of players who wud have made more sense to sell, even if the fees gained in most cases wud have been less per player.

Davenport ,Quashie ,Kyle Reid ,either Walker or Wright, Bowyer,Ferdinand and finally Boa Morte (not due to his ability,but because he s clearly and understandably unhappy after being booed all season) wud all have seemed more sensible players to sell.

If the money is used to bring in a quality player ,then perhaps these moves "might" just be justified,tho i have real doubts. Now we ll really find out whether the dirtrags are talking tripe about us selling players merely to cut wages ,or whether we re selling to raise funds to buy better ones.
