West Ham are set to be without winger Matthew Etherington for the first three games of the new season after he damaged his knee in training.Etherington collided with striker Marlon Harewood, who landed on his knee and put him out of action for a month.Not sure who would replace Eth on the left of WHU's midfield. Would Konchesky move forward from his left-back position, with Spector slotting into the defense? That would be quite interesting to fantasy managers. Might Benayoun switch flanks and Harewood move to the right? Or perhaps a "player to be named later" like Milner or Emerton?
