Obsessively knocking Hernandez, but pining for Carroll. Weird stuff Pinky.
Not really. Hernandez can't do the job this team needs to be done, Carroll can at least do part of it when fit.
I'd always have Carroll as an impact sub, sometimes it's needs must, but I get the impression that many want to see Hernandez, not because he is any good, but because he isn't Carroll.
I don't believe Hernandez contributes anywhere near sufficiently outside of the box to merit a start or even a bench place if we're at full strength. He may be great for Man City, Chelsea or Arsenal, but not for us.
We looked immeasurably better (when down to 10 men) yesterday when Antonio came on, simply because he is stronger, the ball stopped coming back at us quite as easily. And Antonio is a player I'd sell.
Serious question to those who rated Hernandez yesterday, how exactly did he positively impact our play ?
