Enner Nother Injury?

You could hardly make it up could you? Hammers striker Enner Valencia is a huge doubt for this Saturday's Barclays Premier League fixture against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, apparently Valencia cut his toe very severely on a broken cup at his rented home! Hammers move to the Olympic stadium cannot come soon enough for those who still believe in the Gypsy curse that has blighted the Boleyn Ground. For those who are unaware, an old lady is said to have set a curse on the ground when her and her family had their land compulsorily purchased many years ago in order for the Boleyn ground to be redeveloped.
Take it with whatever sized pinch of salt you want, but Hammers have experienced a ridiculous amount of long term 'marquee' player injuries, dating back as far as Stuart Robson, who was followed by Don Hutchison, Dean Ashton,Kieron Dyer and of course big Andy Carroll. Valencia's injury has come at the worst possible time for West Ham who are looking to halt the alarming slide down the Premier League table from 4th at Christmas to the 10th position they now find themselves in, with Alex Song apparently struggling with a knee injury and Carl Jenkinson unable to play due to Arsenal being his parent club, things don't look too good for the trip to the Emirates!
Neutral observers would agree with manager Sam Allardyce's recent comments regarding the strength, or lack of it, of the current squad. The lack of a second string back up team has been woefully exposed, and is something that the co-owners will doubtless seek to rectify during the summer, but for now it will be a case of hit and hope on Saturday. -Ed

As comical as the injury sounds, it has come at a bad time. Yet on a positive side Enners Toe-tal Recall could be material for another Flying Physio Room? :)

Was looking forward to playing the goners but not now...the thought of CC up front with Sakho doing all the 'donkey' work does not appeal. Maybe time to use some youth and show us he can actually mix it up a bit. Not going to happen is it. Oh well, either way still hoping for a 2-1 win.COYI

We paid too much money for a forward that is not a PL striker, too lightweight and a panic buy for £12-14m in my opinion. How many goals to games? And obvious what he is going to try and do on the ball, i.e. side step to one side and bang but his goal scoring record tells you he's predictable and defenders see that.
