Slav tempted by Carroll

andy-carroll-west-ham.ashxAndy Carroll will be in today’s squad for the game against Newcastle so long as he looks fit enough.

The Irons injury ravaged striker has been in full training this week but has travelled to the north east and has an outside chance of making his presence felt.

Slaven Bilic has admitted that it’s very tempting to throw the big fella in against his former club but needs to be absolutely certain he’s ready.

The Newcastle Journal reports Bilic as saying: ““It’s very tempting to play him. “If he looks to me fit enough, of course he’s going to be in the squad.

If he doesn’t look fit enough he isn’t going to be in the squad – it’s that simple. When he is fit we all know he is a major player.”

However, assessing the match,  the manager quipped: “But do you think it’s like Mayweather against McGregor? No. It makes no difference.”

  1. Puting Fonte straight in against his old club worked out well, didn’t it?

    How do you justify giving Carrol an outing? He needs a few reserve games at the very least to build some match fitness before he gets near the first team match day squad.

  2. With his training and recovery regime he probably shouldn’t need that much of it , Inno .
    Would scare the living daylights out of the Toons if he made a late entrance , last 20 mins or so . I would love to see Him bang one in .

  3. He should manage three or four appearances before he is back on the treatment table.The boy has undoubted quality but im sorry but im tired of him now.Its the same cycle repeated over and over.

    • Show a bit of faith , Blind Faith . You have no idea of his fitness level or recovery status .
      Don’t put him on the Treatment Table just because you’re fed up with Him . He may well surprise a lot of people . Seems you’ve forgotten his Goals , just as a lot of other people .

  4. Understand you are a fan Kevin, and on his day he is unplayable, unfortunately his days are few and far between and there is nothing to suggest that he isn’t a knock away from being out for months again. Not someone we can. Plan a team around, impact sub at best for me.

  5. ‘Slav tempted by Carroll’ – tempted to thow him under a bus – complete waste of space!!

    Harsh but fair!

  6. embarrassing

  7. Absolute disgrace,get bilic out now no idea at all

  8. Bilic has to go. That was disgraceful.

  9. Newcastle were 5/2 to win at home. Absolute banker with Bilic’s record of 28 wins in 81 attempts. I’m not proud to win money on my team losing but I may as well get some of my season ticket money back.

  10. If Bilic can’t see that we need a centre half or 2 he should go
    It’s obvious to everyone else
    I don’t think it’s all the team
    He was obviously lucky in his first season

  11. Utterly depressing.
    They pressed, we didn’t.
    Defence looked ragged.
    No meaningful link up play in midfield.
    Chicharito and Antonio left stranded.

  12. That’s not good enough bilic , from team selection to tactics ? Simply not good enough!
    Same as same as again . disgraceful decision to take rice off as a scapegoat and left noble on , ayew on , Fernandez on , zabba, on , ginge on, Antonio up top ? And carvalho is to expensive 😂😂😂 not a Scooby west ham , not a Scooby , shocking 😬😬

    • Bilic has just destroyed rice , hope he comes back unscathed by that tactless withdrawal !!
      Feel for the lad big time , he lost the ball which went to the half way line then carved the NO all over the place defence open by running in behind with pace , 10 goals 3 games ffs HELLO!!!!! Huston we have a problem ???? Large problem!
