Irons admit their fears

diafra-sakho_2drfyklhqef71my2kzqgalnltWest Ham are awaiting the scan report on Diafra Sakho with baited breath on what they admit is a “fearful” day.

The striker is expected to learn the extent of his injury issue today after being forced off with a thigh problem on Saturday against West Brom.

Speculation over the player’s problem has been intense since with many media outlets claiming he could easily be out of action until February.

That remains unknown but the acute sense of anxiety hanging over his  position inside the club is almost palpable this morning given the importance of the striker to the system of play developed by Slaven Bilic.

A senior source – speaking exclusively to us this morning – said: “We honestly don’t know how bad things may be and won’t until after the scan results come back. We hope there are no delays because of bruising.

“The scan will be done this afternoon but we are all fearful of the outcome given his importance to our squad.”

  1. Bloody hell – keep any sharp instruments out of arms reach of your tame ‘senior source’ – whatever the outcome it’s not the end of the World – injuries are part of the game – someone else will get a chance to prove what they can do – that’s Football!

  2. Just moaning all the time like oldtit it come from having damp pants,
    Fingers crossed its just a thigh strain that a couple of weeks rest will be enough,
    I want him in the team but not worried we can’t live without him,

  3. Our injury’s are a massive problem yet again & they always seem to strike the same position & the best players. We could take an injury to a center back and a midfielder & a striker BUT they are never than spread out. If Leicester had the same problems they would also start tumbling down the table

    But we will over come and at least the footballs better to watch than it used to be.

    If Slaven selects an attacking formation and the correct players we will still be able to put out a team who can compete with anyone in this league. ¬®… and im sure he will
