Carroll on that Chicharito partnership

Andy CarrollConfident Andy Carroll claims he and Chicharito can play up front in a 4-4-2.”

The pair have partnered one another up front for just 78 minutes as a twin strike force so far this season but the target man believes the pair of them can prove a hit.


Despite the awful display against Swansea AC and Little Pea were played together but it wasn’t until Diafra Sakho appeared that the game was won by his late late strike.

However, Carroll – having disregarded that – has told the official website: “He’s got to play up front, that’s his position, and the manager has said that himself.

That would lead to a 4-4-2 if he’s playing like that and I’m confident we can work well together.

“We obviously played 4-4-2 last week [against Swansea] and it worked. Who knows [what the manager will do at Burnley on Saturday]? We’ll just do what comes, but obviously I’m confident playing with him in any formation.

“He’s obviously a great player and I’d love to play up top with him.”

  1. Sorry Andy, it is time for Hernandez and Sakho. This is what the majority of West Ham fans want to see this sat and if Bilic has any idea then he will see this too. You are a great player but not mobile enough to start – you are ideal to bring on when the game settles down.

    • I would agree that Sakho and Henrnadez are worth a start but the stats show this season :
      P7 in league, When Carroll has started (3 games – W2, D1), Caroll not playing or sub (4 games, L4).

  2. ‘it worked’
    this is a guy who admitted he doesn’t actually like watching football.
    no wonder he thinks it worked. it didnt.
    i actually believe our best ‘little and large’ style partnership is hernandez and antonio.
    our best overall partnership is sakho and hernandez.

  3. 442 😂😂 worked well against Swansea 😂😂😂 we don’t want you at the club let alone up front you ponytailed pre Madonna !! Just hurry up and get injured and so we can see a decent striker pair of pea and sakho ! Everyone wants it except the delusional one that is bilic !!
    Sounds like carol already knows he’s playing ! Must be the pair of strikers bilic mentioned in the week lol !! 😤

  4. Agreed. We all want to see Pea and Sakho together. But i draw short of wishing an injury on one of our players, no matter how much i want to see him left out.
