Our West Ham fans here in the Transfer Tavern are very happy with how things have gone this summer as they have signed some top players.
Indeed, after a summer that yielded Simone Zaza and Gokhan Tore last year, this time around has seen the likes of Joe Hart and Marko Arnautovic arrive.
Javier Hernandez has been another to come in and many are expecting him to seriously challenge Andy Carroll for the number one striker role.
Indeed, with Carroll seemingly perpetually injured there is a real chance the Mexican will be the main man this season and where that leaves the powerful Englishman remains to be seen.
For now, though, it looks as though he will be staying put with David Gold saying on Twitter he is working hard to try and get fit enough to be able to train with the first team:
Andy Carroll is still not able to train with the first team but he is working hard at Rush Green with the physios. dg https://t.co/3zbaKlWI0N

Fans, then, have reacted to this and so here is the best of what has been said:
Must be a hard life partying till dawn in Ibiza. Poor sod.

If your Rolls broke down as much as @AndyTCarroll wouldn’t you trade it in for another one? Rather than sat in the garage depreciating

Can you confirm what the injury is, why it’s taking so long to recover from and when he is due back?
Always too quiet around his injuries.

What is his latest injury. Been out since April, players have broken legs and are back quicker than him!
