Moyes will deal with alleged Carroll “walk out”

David Moyes is bang in the middle of another Andy Carroll crisis this evening after the striker is believed to have marched away from the bench after being ignored as a late Hammers sub against Manchester City.

Moyes chose to send on Joao Mario, Chicharito and Arthur Masuaku with the game beyond recall  at 1-4.

As reported here earlier, TV streams had shown AC throwing his eyes heavenward and puffing out his cheeks in obvious anger and frustration.

He may well have been remembering his vital equaliser against Stoke City and wondering why he should be left on the bench whilst watching Manu Lanzini was among those coming off.

Interviewed and told of the allegation that Carroll had walked away from the bench  Moyes insisted he would deal with the matter if that turned out to be the case.

He said: “You need everybody to be behind the team and if that is what has happened I will be dealing with it.”

  1. Probably got bored of watching one way traffic and shot off for a quick pint ??? Or two 😁

  2. After two own goals and showing no threat to City it was incredible not to bring Carroll on for the second half . The team were screaming for him . Totally don’t understand Moyes . I am starting to think like some others ( especially Hugh ) that maybe Moyes is the wrong choice whether we stay up or go down . And at 4 1 down why take off Lanzini . No one expected us to win but we could have made more of a fight of it . Fast running out of chances to put some more points on the board . Those three games coming up against Man Utd , Leicester and Everton suddenly look ever more dodgy . I was willing to give Moyes a chance and the next three games will certainly decide it one way or the other . I find myself sitting on the fence a bit right now . If we stay up we must prepare for next season with some serious recruiting . And that could include a change in the technical area if we don’t perform at a decent level for the next three games . All the squeaking you can hear is not seats in the stadium , it’s the bums sat on them . It’s bloody hard work supporting West Ham , good gracias me .

  3. i would rather have seen carroll come on and throw himself into every tackle and give everything for the cause because yes thats what he does and quite often gets injured as a result, but quite often has a matchwinning impact on the game as a reward for his industry, than watch players like mario and chicherito come on and look like theyre out for a sunday afternoon stroll in the local park. its no wonder carroll got wound up. at least the bloke shows a bit of passion and fight. he might get slated for being injured so much but when he finally gets fit hes probably our biggest threat aside from arnie. i can understand his frustration.

  4. I can’t believe that the players looked petrified for the first 20 mins and that the tactics were all behind the ball. We gave away possession at every turn and invited pressure from the off, they only looked like they could play once the pressure was off and we were 2 down. The whole side looked scared and not wanting to be the one making the mistake but that is exactly what that mind set does. The only time City have ever looked up against it this year is when sides actually tried to attack them, their defence is their weak spot (if they have one) and so we allow them the ball in the centre of the park to pick passes through us? What was Moyes thinking? That we could hold them out for 90 mins? Despite blaming Moyes for the tactics I think the criticism of him saying Lanzini was to blame for the 4th is harsh as from my perspective Lanzini was a spectator for most of the game, gave it away constantly and only ran at them once or twice and was fouled when he did so looked frightened of being tackled. Don’t get me started on Chich, that bloke won’t move 5 yards to shut down or chase, unless it’s to his feet in the 6 yard box he is a complete passenger. Any action against Carroll and if I were him I would play Moyes the video and say “Take a look at his work rate, and I am left on the bench?” Wasn’t expecting anything out of the game and knew we would set up on the defensive side but yesterday was an embarrassment and the mindset of the players and coaching staff was to keep it below 5.
