Andy Carroll with two lions on his shirt
So the West Ham lads are now in Dubai for some warm weather training. Just hope that Andy Carroll doesn't find any new ways of getting injured. When he was in Dubai in 2014 Andy tweeted a picture of "2 lions being walked like dogs on the beach 50 yards away from me!" accompanied by the hashtag #waytooclose. This inevitably sparked fears of the striker being given a right mauling. As the rest of our season depends on keeping Andy fit let's hope Slaven keeps him away from any big cats this time.
