West Ham confirmed via their official website that Lukasz Fabianski is set to miss just two weeks through injury.

The Pole is vitally important to the Hammers. His absence earlier on in the season coincided with their plummet down the Premier League table.

So having the 34-year-old out for only two weeks will be a huge boost for West Ham.

Or is it?

Some West Ham fans think there could be a conspiracy afoot.

They reckon that the club have released Fabianski’s two-week lay-off news because it coincides with the end of the transfer window, and by the time it’s closed, they will claim that the Pole’s injury is worse than was first feared…


You can’t blame the fans for thinking this.

The Hammers board have promised so many things since taking over the club in 2010, and none of those have materialised.

It would be no surprise at all for the board to be releasing the ‘two-week layoff’ news just so they don’t have to actually spend any money this month on a top class ‘keeper.

And if true, that decision could end up costing West Ham their Premier League status.
