Carroll fears dismissed

CarrolldivesFears that Andy Carroll has taken another knock and may be heading back to the treatment table have been dismissed  by West Ham.

Upton Park held its collective breath towards the end of yesterday’s 1-1 draw with Everton as the striker appeared to  have taken a knock in the closing stages of the game before being subbed by Jelavic with two minutes left.

In fact the record signing had not been moving comfortably for some time prior to that and given his previous injury record there was immediate speculation that he had again found trouble.

But the club made it clear to ClaretandHugh that the striker is in good order saying: “It was a tactical substitution. Andy is fine, there are no problems with him.”

Both Dimi Payet and Enner Valencia are heading for scans tomorrow after suffering ankle injuries and at this stage there is no further comment from inside the club on their positions.

  1. That’s a comfort !!!!
    I thought Everton would have made him a target !! Like payet , moses , Valencia !!!
    Everyone really lol.
    We have song , Antonio , obiang , zarate , to come in from the bench !!!!
    Still looking good for the spuds !!!!!!

  2. And after watching Sevilla-Real Madrid, I remembered there were talks of Konoplyanka coming to West Ham, weren’t there ? Well he ripped the big Real apart this afternoon. Speed, vista, technique, everything was there. By the way, Llorente came on and scored. Maybe a truce in sight ? Carroll for Llorente ? Konoplyanka has certainly become unaffordable now.
