Wolves boss admits big two changed the game

By David Blackmore
CarrollpayetWolves manager Kenny Jackett conceded the impact of Dimitri Payet and Andy Carroll was the key factor in his side being dumped out of the FA Cup.

Speaking after the game, Jackett said the appearance of the England international lifted the crowd and his “physicality” gave the Hammers another dimension while Payet is a “quality player”.
“It was a spirited performance by our players,” he told the media. “We were very resilient and I felt in the second half we were more comfortable than the first.
“We worked hard to get up the pitch to take the game to West Ham but we couldn’t find the gaps and that cost us. They had one clear chance and with the quality they have, they are going to finish it.”
He later added: “I’m disappointed [that we didn’t get a replay] because there was a sense of frustration which is always what you want to do as the away side. But West Ham have had a terrific season and wish them well.”

  1. If they were Just a few years younger I reckon our big two, Payet and Carroll would be worth 50 million each by the end of this season the way things are going.

    • Payet would be worth at least 30/35 and if we can get 15 million at the end of the season for carroll we would have done well
