Ease up Cressie…this is nonsense

Aaron Cresswell may just have been a tad over-excited in his assessment of Andy Carroll.

Normally I have no problem with players becoming as enthusiastic as they like over a team-mate’s performance but it always seems to end one way when the name is Carroll.

Here we go again – he’s a weapon, he’s different and with the World Cup coming “lets see what happens in a couple of weeks time.”

The full text reads: ” “I’m delighted for him because no-one wants to be injured but he scored within five minutes of coming back.

“His hold-up player was excellent. We’ve had a few injuries over the course of the season but when you have Chica (Javier Hernandez) and (Manuel) Lanzini running off him, it’s unplayable.

“Would he be a good weapon for England to have? Of course. He’s something different. Let’s see what happens after a couple of weeks.”

Let’s get this straight…he came on as a late sub and did really well but England? REALLY? …not that it would make much difference to the outcome anyway which will probably be quarter finals at the very best again.

Come on Aaron ease up! This is just nonsense.

  1. Freedom of Speech eh??

  2. I agree Andy Carrol would be good for England.

    I’m not saying start him, but he certainly would be a useful tool to have on the bench when things aren’t going your way. Remember the Iceland game, when they completely ran out of ideas, wouldn’t it be good if they had a player they could bring in to just lob some balls in the box.

    I mean look Sturridge won’t be an option this year, and there is space on the bench. Why not have some options on the bench, plan A wont work all the time and you need a plan B.

  3. Rather take Glen Murray if we were to take a lump. Carroll’s injury record is abysmal.

  4. Don’t think it’s nonsense either. Not because I see Carroll as world class but more there is a lack of quality English players. Aside from Kane there aren’t any forwards I see other countries worrying about and Carroll does give something different.

  5. If he’s fit I’d have him in the England squad as an impact sub for last 10 mins or so for sure.
