“Go home Carroll” brings fans rumpus

Andy Carroll is AGAIN at the centre of all the wrong headlines after being sent home from training by manager David Moyes.

Having been snubbed as a sub against Manchester City the striker showed his frustration by stomping away from the dug out during the game.

Today he was at an early meeting with Moyes and after refusing to apologise for his behaviour was sent home.

O As much as I don’t agree with him taking a strop and storming off at all, you have to feel his frustration. What does he have to do to get on when were getting hammered. He scored the previous week, a crucial goal at that, and still not enough for Moyes

O Sadly, we are a club in meltdown !!

O We need everyone together not bitching 

 Going from bad to worse.
It’s clear Carroll will be going in the summer, but who’s going to take a chance on him? We’ll be lucky if we get between £5-8 million for him. I’m a massive fan –   the lad could have given up long ago with all his injuries.
Really do think now that the players will throw the towel in and won’t play for Moyes because I think he’s lost the players trust. Hope I’m wrong.
O His injury record is appalling and he should have stayed and supported his team mates but that game was crying out for him to come and hold the ball up.

  1. Not keen on Carroll although would rather keep him than that useless coach we have moyes. Was all in favour like others that didn’t want him from day one but thought ok give him a chance taken two clubs to disaster and didn’t want us as number three. For sure needs to be gone now not end of season can let Pearce take over till end of season then get a decent coach in. Moyes definitely no better than slav on any thing due to football knowledge or what supporters want . Moyes out asp

  2. Is this the start? Is Moyes losing the dressing room ? He’s very defensive about his tactics, he’s quick to blame individuals who make mistakes , pointing it out after the game’s examples Adrian, Rice, and Lanzini , Hernandez doesn’t want to play for him, and now Carroll is throwing a hissy fit ? There all paid quite well they all need to pull together for 3 more matches? Just to be fair to us the paying public??? (And not show your dirty washing in public) . When the season ends then the manager and the players can put up or shut up or move on. But for heaven’s sake they all need to act like like the well paid professional people they are? Its a time to pull together and not act selfishly . Keep the faith C.O.Y.I

  3. interesting how the big carroll ‘bust up’ has been repoed by various news outlets. football. london sam inkersole for instance quotes claret and hugh as the source of the story by saying ‘as reported by claret & hugh the manager and his striker had a big difference of opinion’ . i then saw a talksport article saying there had been a ‘huge bust up’ according to a claim by football.london. finally i looked at an article by the telegaph which claimed that carroll merely left the bench to go and use the toilet. some very interesting takes on it i must say, and all of them probably more interesting than the current football we are watching on the pitch.

  4. Publicly criticizing your own players is not the way to build moral , that’s plain for all to see .
    To mention some mistakes is one thing and all Managers do it , but it depends on how you say it and if you personally dig out individual players in front of the entire media . Lanzini or Rice didn’t deserve that kind of critisism in public . Maybe Moyes thinks it’s ok to do so .
    The bigger problem here is the AC issue . Not to utilize Carroll against City is confusing to say the least . Maybe Moyes thought it better not to risk him in a game where he and the team thought they could never win anyway . Even Noble more or less said as much after the game . Other teams have given City problems yes. , but not at this stage of the season where you can’t risk injury to a player like Carroll with only Man Utd , Leicester & Everton to play . All winnable games with a full fit team and bench . I can understand Carroll’s frustration but he shouldn’t have done what he did . Moyes needs to tell players how important they are instead of sending them home in a tantrum . Good gracias me what an awful time for internal squabbling ,,,, you couldn’t make it up if you tried .

  5. If there was no intention to use him because of his fragility, it begs the question : why waste a space on the bench?
