Cresswell starts Carroll bandwagon rolling

andy-carroll_3354672No sooner has an international break than the ‘Andy Carroll for England” bandwagon starts to roll.

This time it’s Aaron Cresswell leading the charge by declaring that “of course he can” bag a 2018 World Cup spot.

The same argument is presented every time – that the big man offers a different way of playing although we still have to see it to real effect.

However, Cresswell seems convinced he’s in with a shout explaining: “Of course he can (make it to the Finals). Everyone knows what Andy is capable of, especially in the air, and you could say it’s a different dimension and that different way of playing.

“If Andy stays fit between now and the end of the season, there is no reason why he can’t be in contention.

“Everyone wants to be pushing for that World Cup spot and all you can do it keep playing your best week in, week out and hope to make that plane.”

    Come on guys, the very least we should be able to expect after wading through ads and pop ups that threaten to take over our phones and laptops is a basic level of editing on articles…

  4. Yeah, just scoring a goal this season wouldn’t be a bad start.

  5. Andy Carroll’s day has past in my opinion. Or should that be ‘halfday’? I would really like him to prove me wrong with 15 goals by May, but he seems two have lost that edge that made him hard to handle ( yes I have avoided the favourite word of the AC critics!) Perhaps he just needs one goal to get him going. Perhaps he is just getting back to full fitness. Perhaps…
