Bad news: Tomkins surgery on cards

tomkinsWest Ham insiders have this morning told ClaretandHugh  fears that James Tomkins season is probable.

Early indications appear to show that he has suffered some ligament damage from the shoulder he dislocated in training earlier in the week.

That is particularly bad news and is likely to mean he will be out of action until the end of the season.

The scans are not 100 per cent conclusive but a source told us earlier: “It looks 90 per cent certain that he is now out for the season.

“It hasn’t been finalised at this stage but it looks likely he will need an operation. It’s a big blow but we can keep our finger crossed it’s not as bad as it looks initially.”

  1. Doneil can’t come back until 2 weeks time. Let’s hope he aint injured before then.

  2. I think bfs left us short in defence knowing that if we got an injury then Kouyate has to fill in & it makes room in midfield for his pet Nolan,lol 😉
