If you’re a West Ham fan right now you’ll take whatever news you can get in the hope that it’s positive.
With the well-documented stadium issues, the fact that they were kicked out of Europe before managing to even qualify for the Europa League proper and their terrible form so far this season, things are far from positive around the club, which was looking forward to this campaign.
Throw into that the fact that they have one of the most lengthy injury lists in the Premier League and the situation gets even more bleak.
You’d think, then, that any new injury would cause even more frustration but, in fact, it looks as though the latest news of a player suffering a setback has brought some joy.
Gokhan Tore was confirmed yesterday to be out for five weeks, but with him having failed to impress since his arrival in the summer, Hammers fans reacted in a jovial mood on Twitter. It makes for poor reading if you’re the Turkey international but for everyone else, it’s hilarious.
Here are some of the best tweets…

Absolutely devastating that Gokhan Tore will be out for about 5 weeks.
I wish it was longer.
