Are we becoming the Hammers?

Comments (19)

We all know Vaughan keeps getting injured so him pulling out of the Under-21s was expected but with Vic and Timmy now out, the Yak in doubt, who's left fit?

Remembering that Arteta is already a doubt for Sunderland and AJ, Baines and Stubbs only just recovering, are we gaining a Hammers/ Barcodes length of injury list???

Just imagine what team would have played if we had such a run of injuries last year...

Sleep easy Rob. Think countries are looking at the bigger picture and erring on the side of caution with their players as the game Vic, Timmy and Yak are playing in is a friendly.

Word has it over here (in Australia) that we don’t want to risk Timmy as World Cup qualifiers are on the horizon. We can be a sensible lot over here at times.

How are we ’becoming’ the Hammers? This implies we’re somehow responsible ourselves for these injuries. Have we overspent on injury prone, overpaid players? No.

Injuries are part and parcel of football, every club has them.

Does this mean I won’t get to see any of our players in action tomorrow??

I suppose the most relevant question to add to this post is; ?Who cares? if these players have been pulled out of Pointless international duties?

I for one don?t, just as long as they can recuperate in time for more significant issues such as forthcoming Everton fixtures, stating with Sunderland.

Although I?m happy for Lescott that he?s now got the recognition from the England set up that he obviously deserves, he?s already played more games for Everton this season than anyone else. The law of probability would suggest at this rate, something?s bound to snap!

Players always pull out of International friendlies, whether it be by their own request, that of their clubs or a mutual decision by club & country - its rarely anything to worry about and merely precautionary. No player wants to risk himself playing in a friendly that means little - its no great shakes.

Ridiculous post, their injury list has spiralled out of control, and they are dealing with serious injuries like drug abuse, and broken legs!! How are we like them, because some of our guys have a few niggles, and probably want to take advantage of a well-earned break, after a hectic period of fixtures. Your paranoid man, paranoid!!

Drug abuse?? Who are you referring to Chris? Drug abuse isn’t really an injury either!

Victor pulling out is a stranger one, he pulled out due to a hand injury, the same injury he played with against nurenberg and chelski. Maybe he is having 2nd thoughts about playing for Nigeria!

Vaughen is out with the same injury that kept him out of our last 2 games.
Yakubu has a slight thigh strain.

on a positive note it looks like Lescott and Macfadden will both start.

Ah Alan, you do read the other posts. It was a test to see if anyone actually reads anything I put!! Although I’m sure they have a few druggies in their camp, I bet that Anton Ferdinand is a baghead, am I allowed to say that??

Chris - you can say anything you like, as long as you have a good lawyer!

I doubt Anton Ferdinand is a crackhead - he likes shitty nightclubs and a good punch-up, not drug dens and crack-whores......alledgedly...

Alan / Chris,

my mother once claimed she saw two lads in the pub she works at ’snorting heroin’ in the toilet.

Ill ask her what the score is with Mr. Ferdinand.

Just spoke to her.

She says she knows at least three Premiership players who regulary ’inject cannabis’.

Tune in later for more revelations.

To get back to the point can I refer you to here:

According to this information we have six players out injured, five of which should be fit by the time we next kick a football.

Thanks for getting us back on track, Franny lead me astray back there.

If 5 of them are going to be fit again, surely we have little to worry about?
