This afternoon rumours have surfaced that Andy Carroll’s injury, that has been described by the club as minor, is actually very serious – and could rule the striker out for 4 months.
One thing is for sure – something is clearly not right with Andy Carroll. Taking into account that he has not played a single minute of pre season football so far this season, and is reported to have walked off the training pitch after 5 mins of light jogging when the team arrived their New Zealand training camp.
It is these facts that are leading many to believe / speculate that Carroll is once again seriously injured, and is likely to be spending some time on the sidelines.
If this proves to be true, then even the die hard Carroll fans will have to admit that the decision to invest in this player has simply been disastrous.
As of yet however there is no fact, and this could well be a nonsense rumour that has simply gotten out of hand. Like many West Ham fans I hope this to be the case.. But also like many fans, I fear the worst.
