Carroll – The Irons career stats in detail!

With  Andy Carroll out of  the weekend FA Cup clash at Blackburn, ClaretandHugh blogger Peter Ellis has taken a look at his injury ravaged West Ham career. Here are his findings.
Since permanently signing for the club AC l has played in a total of 44 league games out of a possible 102 (including sub appearances) – a return of 44%

In those 44 league games, he has scored 10 goals.
andy-carroll-west-ham.ashxHis wages are reported to be around the £80k mark.
Since joining West Ham (initially on loan) he has earned £14,484,802 at time of writing. On top of a fee of £17.5m (after West Ham paid Liverpool various bonuses) that amounts to £31.9m in wages and fee.
His loan spell was actually his best with the club, as he featured in 24 out of a possible 36 appearances (he played twice for Liverpool) with 7 goals.
Adding both the loan and permanent spells equates to 138 possible games, with him playing in 68 of them, scoring in 17 games.
In short he hits the net 25% of the time he has played.
Remove the loan period and its just a tad over 22%.
So since he first put on a West Ham shirt, each goal has cost £1,876,47.
Those are the numbers.

  1. The previous manager chose him over Wilfred Bony … speaks volumes really

  2. What sad reading the facts read, it was quite clear when Carroll returned from Injury last season under Sam who had been instructed to change the style we played that to accommodate Carroll we had to change our style and we started to lose games, he is simply not mobile enough for fast pace breaks, he does not have many skills, we should have sold at the end of last season when he would have had some value, now?

    Yesterday to try and defend Carroll his fans at the club were claiming that Diafra Sakho is injured even more, but again FACTS show in just 39 matches he has played for us he has scored 17 GOALS!

    We are being sold now that Carroll is a Super Sub, well does that make him the most expensive in the Premiership? sorry but on his salary we can’t continue like this.

  3. Carroll is a great player but he’s a money pit, we are going to have to take a hit on him and sell him for what we can get…..
