Andy Carroll Out for two weeks

andy-carrollSam Allardyce has confirmed that Andy Carroll could be out for up to a fortnight after injuring his knee in the goalless draw with Southampton last night.

Carroll came on from the bench as a 55th minute substitute but was in discomfort as he took a knock then battled with a problem with his knee that he has already injured this season. Carroll was immobile for the last twenty minutes of the match meaning the Hammers were effectively down to nine men after Adrian’s sending off earlier.

“The sad thing is the injury to Andy Carroll”,  Allardyce told reporters at his press conference after the game.

“It was the same knee – took a kick onto it and we hope that staying on hasn’t done any more damage. It could be two weeks that he is out. We’ve got three goal scorers there so I’m not too concerned.”

Carroll was forced to leave the ground on crutches.

  1. Here is the biggest investment in West Ham history strongly desired by BFS: 15 mil. thrown into the rubbish. How many times did he play in two years? This summer with the same money we took Valencia and Sakho together and that’s all. Thinking that two years ago with the half of the money used to take AC we could have taken Bony, today our attack would consist of: Bony, Sakho and Valencia, the best attack in Premier League. BFS, I’ll never stop to tell you thank you for this and for all the rest.

  2. If he was not right yesterday why put him on the bench and bring him on,with BFSs tactics anyway he played as a extra defender anyway so Booth or Oxford could have filled that role and Sakho could have stayed on,
    At half time in his anger he should have amitted he got wrong and took off Cole not Valencia
    And brought on Booth put Kouyate back in midfield and returned to the diamond,
    Please Villa or OPR you can have him for nothing but you need to do before Saturday while we are still in the cup.

  3. You have to start wondering how even though many of us prefer sakho & valencia up top anyway you can rely on or even try to build a team round AC.He seems to give us so few games each season through injury it is difficult to justify having him as a first choice forward.Sullivan must tear his hair out everytime Carroll is out injured,he was never his biggest fan in the first place with regards to signing him & the outlay.It has to get to a point when his injury record & wages he is on really aint justified.I think he is top draw on his day but eventuallly someone needs to make a decision about him & whether he is a bit of a liability,both financially & through his unavailability so often.
