Fans split over Andy Carroll’s fate in Summer

Supporters are split over Andy Carroll in the run-up to the Summer. With a year remaining on his contract this June the striker could be sold if a decent offer comes in for the 29-year-old.

On Tuesday we asked over 1,300 Claret and Hugh readers in a poll whether Carroll should be sold at the end of this season.  Nearly 56% believe the often crocked forward should be sold while just over 44% think he should stay for his final season.

Carroll has scored 3 goals in 3 games this year but has only managed 15 appearances in all competitions all season due to injury. He joined West Ham from Liverpool in the summer of 2013 for £17.5m. He has made 101 appearances since joining permanently scoring 26 goals. While on loan from Liverpool he scored 7 goals from 24 appearances.

Full poll results: Total 1,302 Yes  (729) 55.99%  No (573) 44.01%

  1. Stand by those goal scoring records are not those of a top striker! Sam brought him for a purpose those days are over, we may be split but that is quite a big majority.

  2. I would keep him if when he was injured his salary dropped massively other than that I wouldn’t because he doesn’t represent good value. I like what he can do when he is fit, he is genuine World Class in the air and decent with his left foot.

  3. To lose Andy Carroll because of a minority vote amongst negative fans would be really sad in my view …
    Who has scored that all important goal when needed ???? , nuff said .
    In fact England need need him ,,, they needed him at the last World Cup ,,,, high balls for 90mins every game and nobody there . Come on people ; give the player credit . We soon cheer when he scores and if he didn’t against Stoke ,,, well , the answer is pretty obvious .

  4. we wouldnt get back the 15 million we payed for now. for what we would get you couldnt buy another fourth third or fourth choice striker like jordan hugill to sit on the bench. so i would rather keep carroll untill the end of his contract or offer him a longer contract on reduced terms. i would like to see him stay on as our version of chelseas giroud or stokes peter crouch, a useful option off the bench, a proven match winner.
