Social media is a far from understanding place.

When Andy Carroll limped off against Bournemouth after just 15 minutes on Tuesday night with a hamstring injury, football fans the world over took to Twitter to mock the West Ham forward’s injury record.

The 6 ft 4 in striker has been riddled with injury problems during the last two campaigns and has already had two lengthy spells on the sidelines this season.

The former Liverpool man spent 2012/13 season on loan at the Hammers before they splashed £15 million on him in May 2013.

However, the 27-year-old has only managed to play 45 matches since due to a series of injuries and has only bagged ten goals during that time.

The Daily Mail are reporting that Carroll is facing two months on the treatment table with his latest injury - much to the dismay of West Ham fans.

However, fans of other clubs were all too happy to revel in Carroll’s misfortune with comments that can only be described as unsympathetic.

Here are some of the best reactions:

West Ham fans soon forgot about Carroll's injury as their side came from 1-0 down to win 3-1 at the Vitality Stadium thanks to a brace from Enner Valencia and a brilliant Dimitri Payet free-kick.
