Striker Curse Hits Hammers Yet Again! Sakho Out!

West Ham United fans feared the worst when ex-Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez was reported to have pulled up in training at Rush Green on Tuesday and was immediately sent to the hospital for a scan by worried West Ham medical staff. Chicharito did not return to training with the rest of the first team squad and remained a doubt for Friday night.

The next afternoon he joined Slaven Bilic and Mark Noble to meet Princes William and Harry at the London Stadium with a big smile on his face, and it was later confirmed that his injury was minor and that he would be available for the 'must win' home game against fellow Premier League strugglers Brighton & Hove Albion. However all is not rosy for Slave Billic or the vast majority of fans with the news that Diafra Sakho will NOT be available for the match due to a back injury, it had seemed that finally the 'sulkman' would be able to take the centre stage he had so lusted after given 'one trick pony's' indiscretions last week. Finally there was the chance for Sakho and Hernandez to work together as a big 'un little'un partnership, one which on paper could have been just the thing that fans had been waiting for, alas it is not to be, bollocks!

So plan B then, well for once Hammer's are not light in cover despite losing two of their best known forwards, Toni Martinez is 'ring fenced' to be called up in to the first team, the Spaniard has scored 21 goals in 23 matches for the U-23 team and even the conservative Slaven Billic school of thinking cannot surely ignore this enormous talent.

There will be those who might suggest that there is a gulf between top tier and second tier football, but to have such a prolific striker languishing in the U-23's is a travesty, especially given the hyper inflated values that overseas clubs attach to the talent they nurture and produce.

Slaven Billic was numero uno for the chop up until recently, a victory at home against Brighton could propel his team in to the top half of the table, such is the tightest of the midfield table. A draw or a defeat could see him back in the cross hairs!

Mark Noble graciously accepted his omission from the team that face Burnley last week, and realistically he should assume a position from the bench at best for the fixture against the 'seagulls'. This is not to say that he is finished as a first team player, far from it. When it comes to matches under the flood lights and full on cup matches Noble most definitely still has a part to play, but that is what it will increasingly be, a 'bit' part. To excuse the pun, Noble is too noble to sit on his back side on the bench, he could move on to another club. There are many who would still want him, however we at the Org feel he will be offered a coaching position at the club he has served so well in the past, he will probably be one of the last of the one man one club players ever in the modern game, and good luck to him.

There is predicted travel chaos ahead of the fixture against Brighton, so advice is to set off as early as you can. - Ed

Look it’s so early in the season. Every thing is so critical and so immediate. It’s a long old season and we will use lots of the squad I’m sure. It might be a chance to unveil Martinez as much as we will miss Sakho and Chicharito. Most of us would like to see him get a chance so maybe he will. Too much pessimism all the time boys, try and look at the bright side once in a while.

One in a while wouldn’t hurt. The flip side it’s not worth coming on for some because EVERY post is doo a dn gloom. Maybe it’s the average age of the contributors or something but it’s very morose. Can I see him playing home if Chicharito and Sakho are injured? Maybe. I’d like a win so more probably Antonio up top with Ayew and Arnautovic. It’s more of a default solution for someone clinging to their job

Not exactly true. It all started, to set the record straight - when there was a falling out over the weekly biscuit kitty. See, its Slavens job to allocate each player with £1 each week to spend on their chosen tea dunker. This week however, captain Mark Noble came up with a great idea - to club together to spend their combined pound coins on a cache of premium Fox's assortment biscuits. But long and short of it was there was a bit of a hoo-ha as everyone knows Diafra Sakhos favourite biscuits are custard creams... and low and behold, custard creams weren't deemed posh enough to be included in the tray - they've had a bit of a rebrand and shake up since their takeover by some Icelandic consortium. Rightly so this put Sakho in a big sulk and to make matters worse, Andy Carroll kept on dunking his biscuits in Chicaritos tea, where they would immediately break and leave a soggy sediment. So after some petty squabbles, none of the strikers are talking to each other and Bilic has decide to ban biscuits from the club completely - to the dismay of all but Masuaku who prefers Garibaldis anyway and has his own unlimited supply

Sakho got the hump cos the Dildo brothers released a new whopper dildo based on him and refused to give him any image rights as he's a big enough cock already!
