This culminated in Carlton tweeting “I know I’m easily accessible. It’s a team game and I know I had a poor game. But to take the stick for the whole thing is ludicrous.”
Carlton originally seemed to be taking the abuse in his stride by replying ‘God bless!’ to his haters before making that statement.
It has been a topsy turvy week for Carlton Cole after scoring the third goal at Crystal Palace the previous Saturday.
He was allegedly told by Allardyce he was surplus to requirements and wanted by Bournemouth.
The manager then had a chance of heart starting Cole again yesterday after Diafra Sakho suffered an injury and Enner Valencia remained short of match fitness.
Many Carlton fans took to Twitter to defend the Hammers striker pointing out his loyalty and the important goals he has has scored in a West Ham shirt including the Play Off final which won us promotion.
