Carroll slams Irons “terrible performance”


slaven-bilic-west-ham-andy-carroll_3358382Andy Carroll has joined co chairman David Sullivan in condemning the Hammers squad for yesterday’s performance at Bournemouth brutally admitting: “It was a terrible performance from us.”

The striker – who was anonymous himself for the most part – declared: “We didn’t really get going and their two penalties could have really finished the game, but we kept ourselves in it and got back into it late on, luckily, but I don’t know what went on from then on. We went gung-ho and lost the game.

“We were just all over the place. We spoke in the dressing room after the game and every player agreed they just weren’t at it. I think it was just a shocking game for everyone.

“We came down and felt well but didn’t really get going at all. Obviously we got the two goals, but it wasn’t good enough.”

    It hasn’t been good enough all season , Andy .
    Payet or no Payet . The teamwork has been awful . No structure going forward from defense or control in midfield . As for the Strikers , well , least said the better . Couldn’t hit the bullseye with a cannon .
    The only answer it seems is the system to which nobody is concerned about or committed to . That’s a Management problem . Look what happend at Leicester ; They were lucky beyond belief to win the League and are even more lucky to be still be in the Prem . They changed the Manager ; if that was a good idea we can never be sure but , they now seem safe instead of freefalling to the second division .
    We don’t want that kind of rubbish to happen at West Ham . All we want is a consistent solid performance that makes us proud instead of being a laughing stock . If that Pride and consistency brings success , well all the better . I am tired of listening to players and management telling me how good we are and how good we will be , when , when , when .
    Been supporting the Hammers since I was a little boy . I am 65 now and still waiting .
    Never supported the Disastreous Stadium move nor the New Club / Shirt emblam . Horrible doesn’t cover it . Promises by people earning thousands per week while we are earning a pittance per year doesn’t exactly square up . Most of us could have a very good life and plan for the future with just one months wages as a player . We don’t have it and put our souls into our clubs . That’s the pain we have as Fans ,, Pride and hope . We need something to believe in . So it’s time to deliver .
    Not having a go at you , Andy , just football in general . I love my football but , as players you all need to love us in return and respect us . Players big money wages is destroying the game and the heritage we seeded as fans and followers of our respective home towns up and down the country . I could never have the same respect for a big Huge Club with loads
    of Money as a smaller Club with less .
    I don’t , for example , respect Man Utd or Barcelona . Just huge money clubs that didn’t earn Thier places in history ,, they bought it .
    All I ask is that when you wear the West Ham shirt you play with pride and a commitment that befits the fans that dedicate themselves to the club . ( again , not picking on you , Andy , it’s just that I am getting really ****** off )
    Probably get some round things thrown at me but , that’s how I feel ultimately with things.

    Rarely agree with you Kev but absolutely spot on there my old son. Every point hits the spot bang on.

    Usually it’s Noble apologizing for a poor performance but now it’s Carroll.I’m personally ticked off and agree with Kevin.With the usual team selections I wouldn’t be offering Bilic another contract.How many of the regular starters would be getting a start under say Klopp for example??I think Bilic and the owners have been found wanting big time.
