Cole to Sam: ‘You’re ……. wrecking my career’


West Ham United v Nottingham Forest - npower ChampionshipFurious Carlton Cole screamed down a phone at Sam Allardyce: “You’re ******* wrecking my career!” when his move to West Brom was called off at the last minute

According to The Mirror the veteran hitman  is alleged to have stunned watching Albion staff when he allegedly launched his expletive-laden tirade  just 20 minutes before last night’s deadline.

He is reported as demanding to know why he was being prevented from being able to play first-team football at the Hawthorns.

CarltonCOLEFar from taking umbrage at Cole’s anger, Allardyce is understood to have sympathised with the 31 year old.

West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace, said: “We were disappointed for Carlton because he was also excited about joining us.”

    He certainly wouldnt have been the first nor the last player that will have told Allardysaurus this.I can think of a couple of current squad members who are probably thinking exactly the same thing at the moment.Poyet,Zarate & to a lesser extent Valencia must be wondering why the hell they signed for him.Throw in an unhappy Cole & Jarvis.Downing being messed about in the line up & Noble being ****ed about & the atmosphere in training must be great atm.I guess Nolan is content with life though & thats all that matters 😉

    Nolan is probably just riding this out knowing that no one other BFS would start him so consistently and position him in favor (yes, no “u”) of better suited players like Downing.

    Perhaps if Carlton showed that much aggression on the pitch he might be a better player.He is such a pansy and that’s why Allardyce takes the mick out of him

    Cole is not a problem, the problem will be when the same words will be told by Valencia, Sakho, Amalfitano, Zarate, Song. If BFS will not leave West Ham as soon as possible I’m scared we’ll hear these words not too late…

  • mattefumi69 says:

    The problem isn’t Cole. The problem will appear when the same words will be told by Valencia, Sakho, Amalfitano, Zarate, Song. I’m scared if BFS will not leave West Ham asap we’ll hear these words not too late…

    BS ruining calton cole’s career? You must be having a laugh! Cole has already done a very good job of that already! Without anybody’s help!

    Technically it was the baldy child throwing a hissy fit because he couldn’t get his own way over the OS who wrecked calton’s “dream” move!

    Although I think I’ve heard it all now, a player throwing his teddy’s out of his pram because he can’t get a move TOO west brom! Please!!!!!

    let’s face it – CC is crap and I am not sure how he has got so many starts for us in the PL over the years. A good Championship player yes – but PL? But one thing CC has been though is loyal, and he doesn’t rock the boat being on the bench. This was one last chance for a pay deal for him – but you ask him – he would have only spent it on a new car – again!!
    It will now be interesting to see if he starts this weekend in place of AC – or will BFS give the fans what they want – Sakho and Valencia? I doubt it – but one thing is for sure, Nolan will start and that is a disgrace. He is so far out of his depth now it is embarrassing.
