What Will Happen To The Treatment Room At West Ham Now?

Shock horror, the once famed Kieron Dyer memorial ward at West Ham's Rush Green training ground is in danger of losing much of it's patronage, having survived the move from it's spiritual home among the Portakabin's at Chadwell Heath, the highly recommended and endorsed medical centre currently has only three long term residents, Winston Reid (knee), Carlos Sanchez (knee), Andriy Yarmolenko (Achilles) and of course long term resident and Andy Carroll's accepted replacement Jack Wilshere who has inherited AC's prime berth with it's accompanying much sought after parking slot, ideal for pulling in quickly if you are being pursued by Rolex thieves!

It must be the source of great pleasure to Manuel Pellegrini and his staff to see so many top players beginning to return from injury, each player's return is like a new signing at a time when many clubs are just experiencing or are in the middle of their own injury crises. The Hammers manager spoke about the ever diminishing injury list ahead of Saturday's visit to relegation threatened Cardiff City, and while he was happy with the progress of certain players, he was also clearly wary of the club getting ahead of itself in it's efforts to clear the injury back log.

Pellegrini was at great pains to explain the 'Jack Wilshere situation', saying that the once England midfielder need time to recover 'properly'. Now there will be many who cannot understand the amount of time allocated for Wilshere to recover 'fully' from his current injury, but it should be remembered that ahead of Manuel Pellegrini and his support team's arrival, the likelihood of one Andrew Thomas Carroll being kept fit for more than a couple of matches in a row was similar to that of raising the Titanic.

Cardiff will present stiff opposition as they are fighting for their Barclays Premier League survival and will be no push over, normally West Ham are extremely generous to clubs needing a lift by regularly donating points, but IF the club is to adopt the 'big club mentality' that Pellegrini was brought in to create teams like Cardiff need to be clinically put to the sword. - Ed
