Carroll delighted with hat-trick

league-cup-west-ham-andy-carroll_3354672Hammers hat-trick hero Andy Carroll declared himself happy with the draw but admitted the team’s set up didn’t suit the lads in the first half.

The big man said: “We didn’t play the best in the first half but I was delighted to get a couple back before the break. Maybe my goals meant my best performance in a West Ham shirt. We changed things at half time and it worked better after that. ”

He and Arsenal central defender Laurent Koscielny had a running battle all afternoon but AC said: “It was a tough game between us but there was nothing malicious.

“We are still in it at the top and in with a chance of Europe. We have to be happy with a point.”

On his chances of making it to France in the summer he said: and I have to keep the European Championships in the back of my head but the most important thing for me is to carry on doing it for West Ham United every week.”

  1. Brilliant hat trick.He was immense today!
    Now this is what cracks me up about Wetpants geezers…’the tactical setup was not the best from Slav this game’…haha,well if the geezer who wrote this is so ****ing clever why isn’t he sat in a dugout.**** me they get on my tits sometimes!!!

  2. Pmsl,just been on the matchday thread on there.By Christ they do churn out some crap!!

  3. Better sack Bilic & hire the fan,He clearly knows more than Slav,lol

  4. Always going to be to much for there defence and never went soft after yellow,
    We will need him against Manure as their defence is rubbish to,
    If he can stay fit until Sakho comes off his meds we should still go into Europe but not in top 4 unless the results go or way,
