Upson The Latest Crock
It was always going to happen given his history of injuries, but Upson's hamstring problem seems like another thread in our unravelling tapestry of disaster. Ilunga, Cole and Upson are three players that, Grumpy apart, we would all have agreed we could not afford to lose to injury, and all three have already been sidelined. Add in Diamanti's hip "injury", Dyer's ongoing woes, the stabbing of Downpipe, Parker's suspensions and Ashton's impending imminent retirement, and it appears that the gypsy curse is still hanging around like the club a Quashie fart.
We will miss Upson on Saturday. True he was played out of position, but I thought Gabbidon was poor at Hull and a back four reading Faubert, Da Costa, Gabbidon and Ilunga hardly fills you with confidence does it? I might fancy getting on the scoresheet if I saw that lot up against me!
Remember when West Brom came to Upton Park and won in the season we went down? Remember how Watford took all three points away from the Boleyn in the Great Escape season? If we don't beat Burnley on Saturday, it will be a complete disaster; apart from an injury to Cole, Green or Parker, the sidelining of Upson was the last thing we needed. Let's hope Gabbidon can step up to the plate!
