Kouyate update


Kouyate_3191406Cheik Kouyate remains at the centre of reports he is injured after a training ground knock in Romania with some sources claiming he may be out of action for seven to 14-days.

However, West Ham’s facebook page was declaring a few seconds ago that they were hoping the player was firing on all cylinders tonight – so the mystery continues.

We received early reports that the midfielder had been injured in training and initially were unable to get them confirmed by any of our usual sources.

However, within the last few seconds we have been told the player – like Andre Ayew – has  sustained an injury to his thigh.

Our soure said that he had suffered a thigh injury.

Given the whufc fb statement – which could of course have been made to keep the oppositing guessing on team selection – we continue to treat the stories with caution.

    Hi Hugh, I am a long time reader of this site, but first time poster. I think our medical staff must have learnt from the same book of the Arsenal medics. Only Arsenal are more of a joke than us when it comes to injuries! Game 4 and already done to the bare bones!

    Heres something our medical team should read :
    Its about the science behinds Leicesters success last season. We can learn a lot from that

    Let’s hope he is fine,
    Last year I said he was our beating heart and still think he is and our defeat at Chelski went with his worse display I have seen,
    But I don’t blame him he was not playing his normal role and pushed further forward to help AC and it did not work,
    Be fit and safe our beating heart

    If he is not fit play Oxford alongside Obiang, different type of player but hopefully good enough defensively to nullify the Romanians, if only the team had bought that lucky heather…

  • West Ham Fan No 32 says:

    Lol Kouyate is on the bench so it can’t be too bad quite an attacking line up, Callieri starting COYI!!!

  • johnboy says:

    What heathen did we buy ?

  • johnboy says:

  • bubs says:

    Great line up 10 good players and Valencia,
    Should still be strong enough to win,at least we will all find out how good Calleri is and maybe Valencia can prove me wrong now he is not stuck on the wing
