AC thanks Sheri!


carcelebratesAndy Carroll is coming more and more under the Teddy Sheringham influence!

And he claims his fifth goal in eight Barclays Premier League appearances was as a direct result of working with the former England and Irons striker

Carroll reacted in a heartbeat after partner Enner Valencia’s shot had been parried by Allan McGregor to poke hime a goal.

And speaking to he said that he and Sheri on his positioning and anticipation inside the penalty area.

He said: “That’s what we’ve been doing in training with Teddy – a lot of finishing and following-up That is just another one of his sessions which happens, with Enner shooting and me following in and I had a little tap-in.

“I don’t normally score many of them, so it was nice to get one! I feel good and five goals in eight games sounds good, so hopefully there is a lot more to come.”

    To me, Teddy is the real “SIGNING” of the season.
    If we can vote a coach as Hammer of the year, I would go for Teddy as well!
    Since the start of the season, BFS, players have been mentioning the positive influence by Teddy, and he’s only working part-time!
    We wouldn’t have score that many goals if it was not him giving some insider tips to our attacking players.

    the improvement in Carroll has come at the right time, with Sakho taking ACs place on the treatment table. you can see his movement off the ball has improved and the fact that he is scoring as many with his feet than with his head must show teddy is working hard with him.
