West Ham fans want Andy Carroll and Winston Reid sold this summer, after the club reported the pair will miss the start of the season with injuries.
Over the course of a long, hard season injuries will eventually take their toll on any team. However, some players seem to have a knack of missing major time, and Carroll and Reid both missed considerable time last season, combining for just 24 Premier League starts.
Neither of the pair are nailed on starters even when they are fit, and fans are quite simply getting fed up of waiting around for them to prove their worth.
The club website released an official statement with an update on both players this week, expecting the pair to miss three months at the least.
According to the club statement, both players have suffered setbacks in their recoveries from previous injuries, meaning they will both return from the Hammers’ training camp to get treatment in London.
With new signings flying in one after the other at the moment, fans are ready to give up on the pair, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…

As professional players they must both be devastated, and will do everything to get fit soon.
As a professional football club we must be devastated, and should do everything to remove these from the wage bill.

It would cheaper just to rip up Carroll’s contract. What a overhyped waste of money.
