More Surgery for Ashton

The West Ham official website has announced that Dean Ashton has undergone further surgery on his ankle. The site says no date has been set for his return after a "very successful" operation this week.

Dean Ashton himself said,

"I am working hard and looking to be firing on all cylinders when I come back."

I assume this means we won't be seeing Ashton again this season. Now does anyone know what has happened to Dyer's recovery?

Yes, they grafted his ankle onto Ashton but the spare leg they had put to one side as a replacement to use for Dyer somehow ended up in the post match pizzas that Man U nicked with the points at the weekend

Like many I have doubts that Dean Ashton will ever make a full recovery. I don't think he has ever been fit for more than 3 continuous months during his time at West Ham, and in contrast to some I thought his England debut was embarrassing - he looked cumbersome and out of condition, which he may well have been. It shouldn't have needed to EWngland manager to tell him to lay off the pizzas and lose some weight! At the moment the decision to tie him to a new 5 year contract isn't looking like a good one.

I think he is overrated and lazy. Is he is ever to fulfill his potential he needs to not only overcome his injury, but to build up his strength, stamina and put in a shift during matches.

Wow, hit a guy when he's down.
I for one can not wait to see what Gianfranco does with Deano.
You WILL all sing his name,
and change your tune...

I remember how quiet Ashton was during the "Tevez" season. How long do you think he would have stayed if we got relegated?

I would love to see him get fit, score goals and become an all time great. Its far more likely, however, that he will continue piccking up his salary whilst featuring intermittently between bouts on the sidelines with injury.

He did not play in one game in the "Tevez" season, so yes he would have been quiet that year.
As for us getting relegated, and him leaving,
A. we didn't go down. and
B. Deano's options would have been slim after missing a year of football. But who knows. More importantly who cares? That is all speculation and opinion any way.
He is a West Ham Player and classy footballer.
Can't wait to see Deano do what he do,
in the famous claret and blue,
and in your mouth will be shoe...

Accoroding to (,
no return date for any WHUFC players, Ashton, Dyer or Gabbidon. Be nice to see the boys get a game or two in before the end of the season.
