Lanzini update

Manu is back in the Hammers squad

Manu Lanzini’s knee problem will today be examined by Gary Lewin’s medical staff after the midfielder’s return from the Argentine yesterday.

The player was eventually forced to travel to South America at the insistence of his international bosses who wanted to check out that the injury was “real.”

It recalls the days when Diafra Sakho was forced through the same routine by Senegal where treatment of his back claim exacerbated his back problem.

Lanzini’s persistent knee injury will now be looked at by the Hammers staff after a scan in South America is suggested may have shown there was liquid on his knee. However, that will be checked out by Lewin and his team.

He hasn’t been ruled out of Monday night’s match entirely but his involvement is described as very unlikely.

Hope are still relatively high that Andy Carroll will be on the bench and ready to play some part having “overcome” his problems with a recurring thigh problem.

Are we holding our breath?

  1. I was just reading about the Sporting chairman calling Gold and Sully as the dildo brothers on Sporting TV lmao so funny.

  2. Better hope Habs’avic returns from Montenegro fit or once again no creativity available again !!

  3. Lanzini & Fernandez injured and Arnautovic suspended. Reports now refer to Hammers ‘depleted squad’. On the other hand there’s tje claim we’ve had an ‘exemplary’ transfer window. So which is it? No centre back signed, no defensive midfielder, no creative to cover for Lanzini and a wantaway striker with a dodgy back. I buy depleted squad; but not how&why has this been allowed to happen. Rhetorical.Hi

  4. Kin hell how about we give it a dozen or so more matches before deceiding on the merits or lack of in the squad.I know Hammers forums have the down in the mouths on them but it is like we have already been relegated.Talk about depressing places.

  5. Doomed I tell you , were all dooommmmeeddddd 😂😂

  6. Captain Manwaring would be better in midfield than Captain V8 lol

  7. Godfrey would Travis ! Let alone C,M, what captain slow needs is a v2 stuffed up his jacksy
    As do a few others 😁
    Still looking forward to Monday night though , running out of depressing things to say 😂😂

  8. Depleted squad yes but the players gone would not have been any help to improving our squad to become a stronger challenger for the top six. We had a good start with the ones brought in but without doubt needed a top centre back creative mid fielder and a strong defensive one. Coupled with those three we have good young boys to blood as well but obviously the two davids are not just stupid in football terms but only want to save more cash as the sporting debacle now shows us and they are cowards that cant decide whether to stick or twist with slav. Personally i think if slav wasnt worried about his friends and coaches aldo losing their jobs too he would walk away as his a decent perso something this board and tory girl brady certainly are not.

  9. Most of us said the squad is to thin and wait to see what happens when we get injuries… Well that didn’t take long .. Lol with Manny out now we don’t have creative midfielder..gona be a long season…..

  10. So the SL president has challenged the dildos to show WHU fans a copy of the formal offer made for Carvilho? Shouldn’t it be Bilic who needs to see it, because if it isn’t there, it isn’t just us who have been lied to!

  11. I thought you was tempting fate a little bit when you published an article a few days ago called “Bilic spoilt for choice”, or something like that. Remember that?

  12. Lanzini injured, no problem! We can play that other creative player we just got… erm what’s his name….erm…erm ..hang on it will come to me in a minute oh f^%K
    Basket eggs much??

  13. Well some of you will be a bundle of fun to be near monday.You will be easy to spot though,you will be in your grim reaper costumes.

  14. Just maybe we are taking a more retrospective approach to transfers. See what we are missing then buy at the end of the year.
