Nolan’s words come back to haunt him

Earlier this week Kevin Nolan told the Sun Andy-Carroll-1200

“We’ll have the big man available for the whole of the season and that will be a big thing for us, I’m confident that if we can keep Andy fit, as well as introducing the signings we have brought in, this year is going to be a very good one for us.”

Those words must be haunting Nolan when hours later it became clear Andy Carroll’s fitness remained in severe doubt following West Ham’s statement last night blaming his ankle.

He is expected to fly back home today and it  is claimed he will return to face an intensive specialized programme in attempt to get him ready and repay the faith the West Ham board and manager put in him when he signed last summer.
