John Pa(i)ntsil has damaged his knee ligaments in our clash against Liverpool and is a serious doubt for the Palermo Uefa Cup game. This is a huge blow to West Ham as he has been a pleasant suprise since joining this summer as he hit the ground running in his first 3 games for the club. I have a few doubts about Tyronne Mears who will surely now step in but he now has his oppotunity to show what he can do. We seem to be struggling with injuries at the moment so maybe we do need a couple of new faces before the window shuts.
