Poll: Andy Carroll: Should he stay or should he go?

Hammers striker Andy Carroll proved last night he has still got what it takes when fit.

He came on to save West Ham a point and more importantly deny Stoke two points after coming on as a late sub in the closing minutes of the game.

Carroll scored within six minutes of coming on and was unlucky not to have been awarded a penalty to win the game for the Hammers in his brief cameo role.

He has now scored three goals from three games this year with just 15 League and Cup appearances for the season to his name.

In our latest ClaretandHugh poll, we ask whether we should sell Carroll if a decent offer comes in this summer or whether we should hold on the striker in the last year of his contract for situations just like last night.

  1. He certainly reflects West Ham, doesn’t he? Frustration-to-ecstacy-and-back. But he comes back, changes the game and gets it done. Half the time i’m in the ‘get rid’ camp, then I’m “Aaaaaanddddeeeeeeeeee Caroooooooolllll”

    Happy he got us the point. And, to be fair, he could’ve been the architect of all three if not for the dubious handball.

    *Sigh*. I vote stay, Pay-to-play.

  2. No thanks. Wonderful strikes like that he gives you once or twice a season, the rest of the time he’s either injured, coming back from injury, or suspended. FOR THE LAST FIVE YEARS.

    Is there any logic to thinking it won’t happen yet again?

    Time to move on

  3. Yes he must be moved on in the summer, so we get some cash for him. Great point (did I really say that, how far our expectations have fallen!) on Monday night, but got to look at the whole picture. AC has not provided value for money over 5 years and he isn’t getting any younger, so his fitness isn’t going to suddenly improve. Have to free up the ¬£90k a week and invest wisely.
