Sorry...I had to say no...flame me!
And to be honest, when the Chairmen and Manager have both said that they needed depth up front as their priority then they will probably agree too.
Carroll just seems to be one of those players who put themselves about and as a result will get whacked about constantly....especially as he will have two CB's on him.
He's been injured since May, has had no pre-season and we are relying on him coming in and being match fit and hoping that he doesn't get a recurrence or another injury.
His back up is a player that we shelled out £5 million on last year and almost immediately it was clear that the manager didn't fancy him, hardly played him and we supposedly spent all summer trying to sell.
Who knows, we might be fine and Andy will have 10 goals by Xmas and I'll eat humble pie. I just remember 2003 where everyone was worried about relying on 2 injury prone strikers and a rookie and lo and behold.
