Bobby's Better Than Ever

BOBBY Zamora scored two scorching goals to help see off Sheffield Wednesday in the Carling Cup Second Round at Hillsborough.

The 24-year-old striker made only his second start of the season and was on the scoresheet inside two minutes.

But it was his 54th minute volley that really caught the eye, a right foot stunner that was good enough to grace any game.

Bobby though was just delighted to star and give Hammers boss Alan Pardew a further selection headache.

"I've started last night and I started on Saturday," he said, "and that's really positive for me.

"I wasn't playing at the start of the season, but that wasn't a problem because I know that I'm part of a strong squad here which is doing really good things.

"There are some great strikers at West Ham United, but there is no difference between us.

"It's a normal thing in the Premier League to have to fight for your place.

"I know I'm going to get games and when I do I have to do something that will stick in the gaffer's mind.

"Hopefully I did that with the two goals, but the most important thing was the win and making sure we kept our good run of form going.

"It was nice to get one like the second goal, which was a good volley and with my right foot as well!

"It's the same for all the players here, we have to fight for our places, and we've shown against Sheffield Wednesday that we have a good squad here."

Bobby believes that despite his lack of first-team action he is improving as a player since Hammers step up to the Premier League.

"It's a bit tough not playing regularly," he admitted, "but it's a bit like last year when I was coming off the bench and managed to score some important goals.

"I want to play, but I'm happy to fill whatever role the manager wants me too for the Club.

"I think I've been coming along and doing well this season, I'm pleased with my performances and whenever the manager wants me to play I will give 110
per cent."
