Bobby Zamora has re-joined Brighton and Hove Albion on a free transfer from Queens Park Rangers 12 years after he left the Seagulls.
The ex-England international has signed a one year deal with Chris Hughton's side and will be keen to repay the reception he has received since his return was confirmed.
Returning to a club where he is so highly respected is not without its risks, though, given the Zamora's age and undeniable decline in ability, so expectations must be tempered accordingly on all sides.

It's easy to understand why Zamora is held in such high regard with the Brighton faithful when his goals-to-games record is considered, however - he scored 76 goals in 125 league games.
Speaking to BBC Sussex, the striker said of the move: "I had an offer from a Champions League team, and a team who win their league pretty much every year, so it was hard."

"But Brighton was the only place I really wanted to be."
Zamora will of course be hopeful to help rectify the issue of goalscoring - something that Brighton struggled with last season - but the 34-year-old was keen to point out that his role will stretch further than merely scoring goals.
"The ultimate goal isn't 30 goals for me, it's making sure the team put in a good performance every week," he said.
