A lot of West Ham United fans are discussing former striker Bobby Zamora after a fan page asked how well the attacker would do in the current Hammers squad.
Zamora played for five seasons at the East London side from 2004-2008 and made 148 appearances, scoring 38 goals and providing 13 assists, via Transfermarkt.
He enjoyed a great career in both England’s top flight and the Championship, playing for multiple clubs including Queen’s Park Rangers and Fulham, and his great performances were noted when he received a call up to the England squad in 2010.
West Ham have only scored 35 goals this campaign, which highlights why they are struggling to stay in the league as they sit 16th and only two points away from Aston Villa in 19th, via Sofascore.
French striker Sebastien Haller, who signed for the Irons before the start of this campaign, has scored seven times, via Transfermarkt, but has faced a lot of criticism from the fanbase for his inconsistent performances.
Fans have therefore speculated whether Zamora in his prime would have done a job in their current squad. Here is what fans had to say following the tweet:

Haller would look a lot sharper with Zamora alongside him, no disrespect meant to Antonio at all, but Zamoras movement was more natural of a goal scorer.

@RobertZamora25 was in my eyes the main reason we stayed up. He found form and was scoring regularly as well as his overall contribution to the team. 20+ I’d say!

Not many to be fair

It is not as though our team is actually any better now than then – so I would guess pretty much the same
