Ashton breaks ankle with England

Ashton breaks ankle with England - Yahoo! Sport UK
West Ham striker Dean Ashton will miss the start of the new Premiership season after breaking his ankle during England training on Tuesday.
This is sad news. Ashton is a blog favorite and we wish him a speedy recovery.

As for West Ham, they have depth at stiker with Harewood, Sheringham, Zamora and Cole. But they will miss Ashton's hold-up play and finishing.

    And why? And why? Pointless friendly in a very sensitive time. I hate England. Ashton on the shelf till November. Looking on the bright side, if there is one, we were pretty much safe by the time he arrived last season, Marlon, Bobby and Cole will vie for playing time staking their claims for a regular place so Deano will have to work extra hard when he's fit again... Or it could all go horribly wrong and we'll be bottom at Christmas....
