Poll Result: Fans deliver verdict on Carroll future

AndyCarrollWestHam_2821401Andy Carroll’s injury problems go on and on and it would be a seriously hard-hearted individual who didn’t feel sympathy for the club’s record signing.

But the issue of whether the player should remain or sold – assuming a buyer could be found – has dominated West Ham related social media debates for months.

And as a result ClaretandHugh decided to put the question to its followers in a new poll yesterday. It drew over 1,000 votes in less than 24 hours – a figure which makes is official with the Mori polling organisation.

And the Irons fans have made it clear by a heavy majority that if the chance comes to sell him, they believe the club should do so.

The official figure in favour of selling him was 67.53 per cent – a total of 703 votes with those against totalling 26.51 per cent ( 276 votes) with just 5.96 per cent unable to decide one way or the other (62).

In discussing the big man’s future manager Slaven Bilic this morning pledged to stand by the player.

  1. Slav has no choice for this season as he is going no where,hopefully Sakho will be fit from now on and he won’t be needed,
    I like him when he is fit and o do most of the fans and he has worked hard to adapt to the new style,but you need players that can play at least 75% of the season,

  2. This season, Carroll has made 15 Pl appearances, 8 from the bench, scoring 3 times
    Sakho has made 12 starts, 12 scoring 3 times.
    Vallencia 9 starts, 4 as a sub, 4 goals
    Lanzini has only made 14 appearances & Payet 19.

    David Gold recently tweeted that AC has made 9 substitute appearances for West Ham this season (all competitions) and in 6 of them the result changed favourably in West Ham’s favour.

    If he’s not fit, no one will buy him. If he’s fit, he plays. Any talk of selling him is complete and utter madness.

  3. You clearly like having a crock as your main striker then Ray.Why are going to buy big in the summer on a striker if Carroll is going to be the main man.I guess some of you have come so far down the line cheerleading Carroll there isnt any turning back now or admitting he is a liability for both Bilic & the club!!!!

    • What I said was, if he’s not fit no one will buy him. Plus, he’s on £85k per week for the next four years, who’s going to offer him that and pay us a decent whack to take him off our hands and tempt him to leave? Maybe the Chineese but he has a young family and is very munlikely to want to go there. The points I am making are that he’s virtually unsellable and that his fitness and goal scoring records are no worse than our other strikers who get nothing like the stick that he does.
