Mr Carroll’s words sound so hollow now!

CarrollHere’s the perfect example of how footballers should perhaps let their feet (or maybe head in this case) do the talking.

Only on Friday Andy Carroll was talking himself up as a World Cup possible after being mentioned once or twice by team-mates and the ever present media groupies.

Today he can do one of two things following the elbowing incidents at Burnley – two in as many minutes – and being roundly condemned by his boss and many fans on social media.

Here’s a reminder of what Mr C had to say about the possibility of making the ‘plane for Russia when it was put to him and my oh my how hollow it all sounds right now :

“It would be nice to be in the squad, it is nice to be spoken about in that way.

“All I have got to do is work hard and hopefully get the call but, at the minute, I am focused on getting fully fit here, scoring goals, and getting good results. If I deserve it, hopefully I will get the call.”

“I am confident of what I can do and it is different to what they have got at the minute. I am fully confident of my ability.

“I am feeling good; I am feeling a lot sharper than I did at the beginning of the season, getting back fit. I have had a run of games. In training, I feel a lot sharper, not 100 per cent yet but I am getting there.”

  1. He now has another break to get sharper still, he owes us a lot of goals and a few assists wouldn’t go amiss when he gets back.

  2. Most of the U-23 players have better footwork than Andy Carroll, and are considerably faster.
    During his well-deserved absence, Andy could do well to expand his tactical skills rather than trying to emulate the performance of a WW2, ‘Supermarine Spitfire’.

    • True Max. He can’t control the ball, can’t pass, can’t dribble, can’t shoot, can’t sprint, and he has no off the ball movement whatsoever. He is more a brawler than a footballer

  3. Antonio should be called up!

  4. Bilic and his Sunday League side attitude (I’m going to pick my best mate) will not change, every time “Long ball Carroll” is fit he’s the first one on the team sheet, we may as well have Fat Sam back!

  5. How many points has he cost us now?

  6. When there’s a problem in a club , like the one with bilic,s bias with sakho who is without a doubt the best striker at the club , then he isn’t fielding our best 11 and is depriving the club and paying supporters not only value for money but also putting personal probLem’s before the benefit of the club , personaly he is terrified sakho would force him to pick him and put him and the clowns that run the club in a embarrassing position and if they are planing to move him on would be crucified by the supporters , bilic either stops his personal agenda on sakho which is there for all to see and stop the brain dead love in with a pile of 💩 who as mentioned above has no quality in his game apart from his height advantage !!! Then bilic needs to go , for me the sooner the better !! He isn’t doing his job and what’s plain to see is he’s not tactically astute and defiantly cannot see players in their true light and add to that his broken English waffling mantra bullshyte , ( talks a totally different game to what we see )
    Put the club first or get someone who can sugo ,
    We orchestrated a move yesterday which included one touch and movement and pace ?
    Shame about the finish but will bilic see that’s what we want to see ,??? Naa hoof ball and Carroll when available again mark my words 😎
