Irons Irony Ends in Ironing!

One possible solution to the injury issue

After much reflection about the latest Hammers injury pandemic, the crew at VERYWESTHAM were just getting ready to do a piece on the sheer irony that our attacking line had become dependent upon the one and only Andy Sicknote,  when lo and behold the inevitable came to pass!

This time its not knee ligaments or ankle damage or shinsplints or Rocky Mountain Yellow Spotted Fever (yes, such a condition does exist!), but a simple groin strain. The prognosis: one week and review. Hmmm. Anyone heard that about Andy before?

In truth, Michail Antonio's performance last week gave cause for offensive optimism. Enner Valencia is also back in the mix, and may yet deliver upon his undoubted potential. Victor Moses is apparently also fit but the real shocker is that Carlton Cole doesn't play for us any more, and that's a fact!

Another must have accessory for the West Ham merchandise collection.
With the injuries continuing to pile up despite the training transfer to Rush Green, it's back to the Ironing board. Maybe it's our training methods or the gear we use?

Or just darned pesky bad luck! On the plus side, tomorrow's opponents Swansea are in disarray and will hopefully lack the discipline to take advantage of our currently toothless-again squad.

Another low scoring draw looks likely.
