The Andy Carroll injury saga has entered its latest chapter, with the clubs record signing now requiring surgery to his injured knee – which means Carroll will miss the rest of this season.
A sad blow for Carroll, and an exhausting one for the club and us fans. It seems every injury the man picks up is serious, requires surgery and means a long spell out.
This latest one is a hard one to take, especially as the club have been so adamant that last summers medical procedures would have put a stop to his injury nightmare, and we’d see the real Andy Carroll now.
Well, it hasn’t happened, and now onto the next long term, exhausting injury updates before we see him back in a West Ham shirt again some time next season.
