Carroll slams walk out Irons fans


Andy Carroll has slammed the Irons fans after thousands walked away from the London Stadium before the end of Saturday’s defeat against Liverpool.

The striker claims the Hammers faithful should not be acting that way.

He declared:  “They really should be staying. They should be staying until the end. You never know what’s going to happen.

“They walked out at half time against Tottenham when we were getting beat 2-0 and we turned it round.

“Palace fans last week. Look what happened in the 97th minute. Fans should stay until the end, regardless of the team.”

He added: “Obviously it frustrates you. You don’t think about it during the game. But when you see the game back and you see the fans leaving, they really shouldn’t be leaving.

“They should be supporting us no matter what. We should be playing better. It’s us to blame. But they should be helping us out a bit.”

  1. And, you & your team mates should be playing better, Andy, & justifying the huge salaries which the fans help to pay. That might give the fans something to stay for !

  2. When he pays for my ticket I’ll stay to the bitter end – we left after Liverpool’s fourth goal and once we struggled to get out through the single open door (an accident waiting to happen!) we were behind thousands of like minded people.

    Another thing in the punters minds is the crush to get to the Station – through the mean streets of Westfield with its Stop-Go boards, barriers and stewards herding you from pillar to post.

  3. Says the sick note of the century , who wants out all of a sudden ? Why else rile the supporters with this talk !! Keep you’re Geordie trap shut you xxxx rehab peshhead and when you pay for my s/t I might stay or I might not , up to me you #### ! You’re one of the reasons were in the mire , let’s see if Moyes treats you like a god !! Or maybe there’s an injury on the way !!!! Maybe sakho stays now , I hope so !! 😤

  4. Fans slam uncommitted players

  5. I think this demonstrates the gulf between the club and its fans – he should be directing his rage at those that let the side down on Saturday and not at the fans who get pitiful value for money.

  6. I’m not sure he ‘slammed’ the fans, the headline writer looking for an angle as usual, but what he does say is wrong, like thousands others I left at the fourth goal just as I did after the penalty against Brighton. It’s my choice, I pay my money and actually have a bloody long way to travel, all to watch that load of tripe.

  7. He declared: “They really should be staying. They should be staying until the end. You never know what’s going to happen.
    Well what actually did happen andy was that liverpool missed a hat full of chances after the fourth goal and the result might have been a lot worse.

  8. Silly, stupid Andy-always shooting off his trap..
    Should keep the mouth shut and do the talking with his feet!

  9. I would certainly agree that walking out at half-time is not something that people should be doing – he references the Tottenham game, while the one that sticks in my mind was the game away to West Brom where we were 3-0 down. That being said, there’s staying to the end in a situation like the one we had against Tottenham at home this season, where the odds were good that we could have got something, and then there’s staying to the end in a situation like on Saturday. You may as well have the extra time spent with your feet up at home watching Strictly…

  10. So speaks the millionaire Andy Carroll, about people for whom 7a.m. is the time they have to go to work (and do the job that they’re paid to do), in order to pay his wages, rather than it being the time they get in from a night out.

  11. Being 2-0 down at half time and 2-1 down towards the end of the game are not the same as 4-1 down at home

  12. Well that’s saying something coming from him!!!! Lmfao……now we’ll see what him and his 1st team squad get when the new manager comes in …….no skirting around with the whole lot of slackers……get paid thousands per week but show no commitment or gall..yep Mr Carroll….you lot finally got him the sack ….hopefully your next out in January……frigging SLACKER !!!..

  13. At least their fit enough to walk out. AC would have done knee getting up from his seat.

  14. Well done to those who attended and walked out early. You’re doing a lot better than me. I’ve been to one game this season because I refuse to let the team ruin a weekend for me with their non committment.

  15. Lanzini apart , the rest of you are not worth staying for, give us something to keep us in the stadium, maybe you should get used to empty seats, if we go down that will be a regular occurrence.
