Zamora insists we need Carroll back

Bobby Zamara reckons Andy Carroll needs to return to the side for the Irons to see the best of Chicharito.

The former Hammer reckons Little Pea “is a bit like Jermain Defoe”saying: “He’s always got goals and going to get goals and if you put that ball into the box he will take chances. If you give him the ball four times in the box, he’s going to score one.”

And he added: “We need Andy back, too. It’s just about how to do it, how to incorporate Andy into it and can they get that understanding and work together? If they can, they’ll be a very potent force.

“I love ‘little and large’ strike forces and had great understandings with Carlos Tevez at West Ham and Andy Johnson at Fulham, when we did really well.

“Defenders find it really hard because one striker is going to make it difficult for you physically and the other one is going to run in between your legs!

“It’s hard for defenders to go from one extreme to another, so they are the partnership who can do real damage for ery mixed emotions about theme.”

The former Hammer and Brighton striker has mixed motions as Friday night advances on us saying: “I think it’ll be quite a tight game and a good match-up.

“Both are quite similar teams in that they have big, really good centre-halves who will put their heads in anywhere, full-backs who attack, wingers who can do a bit, midfielders who can pick up the ball and play with it and strikers who can score good goals.

“Obviously, I absolutely love West Ham but I also absolutely love Brighton, as they are my two teams and I think they match up well. I’d love both teams to take a point; that’d make me happy because I’ve got no real favourites in this game.”

  1. Sakho will do that and some!! He’s a much more efficient player all round !! Carroll is a plan b
    Not a plan a using hoof ball ? Bilic is the problem here with his coaching staff ! The other worry is that bilic is basing our game around Carroll when we all know its a waste of time until the next injury plus he isn’t suited to a ball passing and movement game which most of us wish to see ! Sell him and move on with footballers not nat lofthouse in drag ?😁

    • Agree completely about Sakho he can play as a target man but will also go past players and turn the defenders around something that they don’t want, I also think Sakho will lay more goals on for Chicharito than Carroll would in 10 seasons because Carroll is dense and for all his aerial ability he gets very few assists.
