WEST HAM UNITED, how many ladders have accidentally been walked under? How many black cats have been run over and how many mirrors have been cracked or broken? How many chain letters not sent on etc? You get the picture, other teams have injury crises, for example Chelsea are without ten first team players at the moment.
The Irons though are perrenial new signing injury sufferers, NO top flight club in the UK can possibly come near Hammers ludicrous tally of players injured before official debut, injured on debut or injured within weeks of signing! Virtually ALL of this season's signings HAVE BEEN INJURED ON A 5-10 scale, you couldn't make it up could you?
Maybe it's the old gypsy curse, but wouldn't it be worth doing some 'exorcising' instead of exercising at the club's training ground AND it's actual Stadium? Nothing else seems to work, the list is endless of players being struck down with all manner of injuries and has just been added to with news that Danny Ings picked up a 'knock' towards the end of the much needed 2-0 victory over Everton which saw Frank Lampard get the tin tack this afternoon.
As a result of the knock, Ings will be unavailable for the next three games, so much for competition for the strikers, unless it is competition to hog the physio's best beds? We are not sure who the club's insurers are but you can bet your Ivan Toney on them NOT EVER renewing their Hammers' Policies!
Perhaps the club will injure their next player in advance in order to get the formalities over and done with greater rapidity? - LN
