It Could Only Happen to......

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

That Andy Carroll hospital wing must be 10 star luxury at Chaddy Heath!! It would be funny if it was another club.
As it's WH though you can only look to the heaven's and ask WTF have we done to deserve this level of hatred from the Gods? Of course 3 weeks will more than likely turn into 3 months and Danny will be plying his trade in the Championship with us unless he insisted on a relegation get out clause in his contract!!

Danny Ings did not look fit to me against Everton. He was puffing and blowing like a stranded out of water fish on dry land. Didn't spot the "incident" where he got the knock myself. As for Scamacca, getting injured in training ffs! Guessing Antonio won't be going anywhere now so all we need is a twang on his hamstring!

Arsenal are the youngest team in in the Prem. top of the league and playing attractive football. I agree throw some of the youngsters on, can’t hurt,

Areola has now been targeted. Can see him going due lack of game time. Need to start him instead of Fabianski. Agree regarding youth. They also need game time, especially Ashby. Moyes will cripe this club.

Do you mean Darren Randolph? Areola will be representing West Ham in the Conference Cup playoffs. Doubt that they will release both Randolph and Areola in a single transfer window, especially when Randolph is on the verge of signing with Bournemouth!!

The bid from Lorient has been rejected!!

Who on earth thought it would be good business to fork out an initial 12million quid on a player who’s already had TWO serious knee injuries???

for at least 3 or 4 weeks, will Moyes play the youngsters, no. He will rely on his favourites and that will be the end of us unless the board grow some balls and get in someone that has guts. As for bringing in anyone else I can’t see that happening either as like he said in his podcast, he has Antonio. God help us.

Just two centre backs in Ogbonna and Aguerd. So just as Dawson leaves then of course another centre back bites the dust for a month. Wonder whether Moyes will even risk putting out Ogbonna and Aguerd in the FA Cup Game against Derby County or have the balls to try out some of the younger defenders? Guess Kehrer and Cresswell will definitely be thrown in the mix along with Johnson!!
