Gold: “We will give Andy Carroll another week”

CarrollbackWest Ham joint chairman David Gold has said that the club decided against introducing Andy Carroll back from injury on Sunday and instead will give him another week of intensive training which will presumably rule him out of the second game against Manchester United in the EFL cup on Wednesday evening.

Gold tweeted last night “It was decided not to reintroduce Andy Carroll for today’s game against MU but to give him another week of intensive training. dg”

On Saturday Gold said the 27 year was in contention for squad selection on Sunday by posting amessage saying “Andy Carroll has been training with the first team squad all week and is in contention for selection for the game against MU on Sunday. dg”

The crocked striker was injured during a 1-1 draw away to Romanian champions Astra Giurgiu in their Europa League play-off first leg back in August, at the time we were told he would be out for no more than six weeks.

Diafra Sakho became the first West Ham striker to score this season on Sunday after he grabbed the 90 second opener at Old Trafford. Unfortunately he is also injured again after a previous three month lay off with a back issue. He was taken off in the 66th minute and undergoes a scan today for a hamstring injury which could see him out for several weeks.

  1. Wish for once they would say Nothing, what will it be next weekend?

  2. Couldn’t really care less about him! he’ll no doubt get an injury in training or an injury at Wetherspoons or Pizza express and we’ll all be told he’ll be back in January and it will be like a new signing 🙂

  3. I will believe it when i see it.Perhaps he wants to come back to get a suspension ready for christmas 😉

  4. Yes, I wouldn’t hold your breath – Bilic can’t rely on him and must plan without him.

    Bill Shankly and Brian Clough would completely blank injured players – both their attitudes were that when a player was injured they were of no use to them, so they were treated like they didn’t exist – seems about right to me!

  5. I have a better idea: don’t give him another week, give the China Doll a kick in the a$$… lol 😉

    • Matte you mischievous little Italian you! You already know the China Doll is the untouchable unique greatest forward that has ever existed 🙂 He will grace us with his prescence when he chooses and us mere mortals should fall at his feet when he does so 🙂

  6. Put him on the bench injured or otherwise against Man Ure will give Mourinho something to think about on his team selections.

  7. Theres more chance of finding him on a park bench with a bottle of cider than our subs bench hehe

  8. Surely the club realizes we can’t ever pin our hopes on Carroll ever again? China beckons.
