Carroll looks forward to life under Slav

andy-carroll-west-ham.ashxAndy Carroll can’t wait to start life under new manager Slaven Bilic.
The front man appears delighted with the new man at the helm declaring: “I think it has been a great appointment. I have spoken to the lads and everyone seems to be happy with it.
Speaking to the official site Carroll said: “He plays a lot of attacking football and I have seen the teams he has been coaching and they love to go out and attack. “That is a great feeling for me and I cannot wait to get started.”
Carroll has worked under the likes of Kevin Keegan, Chris Hughton, Brendan Rodgers and Sam Allardyce, and is now looking forward to learning the methods employed by the new Upton Park boss.He said: “It is interesting to see how he is on the touchline. Different managers have got different styles and this will be very different to what we have had in the past, but it will be very interesting and I cannot wait to get started.”

  1. Bloody hell,he didnt take long to leave Sam & get a new adopted dad 😀

  2. ahaha… and his big brother kevin? Poor Sam he has ungrateful sons… 😀

  3. He won’t kick a ball in anger for us this year,I hope we cover Remy transfer with what we get from Newcastle for him,
    Shame I think he has more to offer than high balls and being hard to handle
    He needs to learn a better first touch and hold the ball up if he wants to progress
    I know Matte you don’t rate him but I think he would make a good impact sub like
    Aldridge at Liverpool,

  4. Wont be long before all the players who were praising hippo wanting him to stay will swap alliegance & will be praising Slav & saying how much better it is now under him 😀

  5. To be honest he kept quite when others were backing BFS and Nolan did as well,
    BFS told his boys not to hang themselves by backing him,
    If we get an offer of £10 million or more from Newcastle the 2 Daves will grab it and Newcastle will have made £20 million profit and not been stuck with an injured player for 4 years,
    Would not be surprised if McClaren does not come after Downing as well

  6. Always thought that’s how Carroll should have been used once we got Sakho and Valencia, bubs. You could switch the whole style of play by just bringing him on as a sub and throw a whole defence off balance. If we can see that maybe Slaven has too
    I already commented that I was surprised that Slaven’s wish list didn’t mention striker although we appear to be trying to buy Remy.

  7. I’ve always hoped he’d come good and I do think under a football playing manager that could be the case but as ever it’s can he stay fit. The thing with a Geordie offer is we have to give the scousers a chunk of the fee,it tops up their benefits lol

  8. I think Remy might be Cole,s replacement canchaz,and I was hoping Lee would get a shout this year to, Gignac sounds like possibility to but that’s enough or people will want to leave for not getting playing time,will Carroll except that role as sub ?
    Will we be able to keep Valencia ?
    I would like the most money spent on creative midfielder,right back and a good singer,
    If they are free great but if not let’s get quality,

  9. Carroll kept quiet because they had no wifi in the hospital he lives in 😉

  10. To be fair there was no need for either Carroll or Nolan to publicly announce they wanted hippo to stay.Everyone knew they were up his ass.Would have just been a waste of paper space.Wouldnt have exactly been an ‘Exclusive’ would it ‘Nolan Backs Sam To Keep Job!!’ .Wow,no sh*t Sherlock 😉

  11. Gignac is off to Mexico i think i read,to be a bandit 😉

  12. Like chilli and sun or has drug problem,why would you want to go to Mexico,
    Even Mexicans don’t want to live there,ask Valencia
    We just need to give him a good wage make him feel wanted and hope Swamsea or Southampton don’t give him more,
    He has 3 good years left in him and would put pressure on Sakho and Carroll to play along side Valencia,

  13. Quickdraw …..Surely we only pay liverpool anything if we make a profit?

    • You could be right Jimmy but when it comes to Liverpool they’ll claim for anything lol

  14. I stuck up for Carrol a fair bit but like bubs said if we can get £10m then let him go, Carroll out for £10m Remy in for £10m sounds good. Can’t have another season of him letting us down time and time again

  15. I agree ..if we keep him and he goes down with yet another injury who is goibg to take a chance on him then? If we get a decent bid its time to cut our losses methinks.
