Over to Roberto as Fab faces three month lay off

News that West Ham could be without brilliant keeper Lukasz Fabianski for three months is horrific news at a stage of the season when everything is going so incredibly well.

In fairness, after an uncertain start , Roberto did reasonably okay in the face of a lively Bournemouth team without ever truly convincing.

We have become used to Fab – now sidelined after a scan showed he had suffer a tear to his thigh muscle – commanding his area but sadly the same can’t be said of the Spaniard t this stage.

Maybe he will grow into the job but there are many with reservations on the strength of what we have seen so far and it could be that Alvin Martin’s son David could be in line to challenge the number two.

CandH as told by a top insider by e mail this morning: “Fab has suffered a tear in the thigh muscle, we expected it to be a strain which is 3-4 weeks. We don’t know whether it needs surgery at this stage but it will be around three months regardless of that.It’s s kicking leg.”

  1. What can we say, our luck with injuries to key players is abysmal, I don’t think this can be put down to training or any of the other speculated causes. Hopefully with a run in the team that on paper looks decent for the first month anyway Roberto will gain in confidence and the team with him, COYI!!!

  2. I agree. 3 months out for Fab is a minimum of 12 games.
    Roberto needs the fans behind him, not the booing that he got at Oxford. He may not be everyone’s cup of tea but he is going to be first choice keeper until Xmas at least. Let’s not undermine his confidence.

  3. I do not agree with booing your own players, I certainly won’t.

    But having said that, he doesn’t fill me with any confidence. And I will be very scared anytime a shot is ok target. He doesn’t look like he can dive or catch a ball.

    Very nervous.

    Hope I’m wrong off cause
