I keep thinking about if you got Carroll and Siem de Jong together, would they combined have enough working parts to form an actual functional player?

How have the other free transfer, frequently injured strikers (Danny Welbeck and Daniel Sturridge) been getting on this season?

I wonder how quickly this "Mystery" injury would be correctly diagnosed at an other club, or actually avoided due to proper rehabilitation facilities.

Actually scratch that.

Welbeck has been as bad as Carroll looking at his stats for injuries.  Sturridge is doingok tbf, 4 league goals.

He's done better than I thought tbh, which shows how much I expected from him.

So as things stand, if Joelinton gets injured, we're playing Muto or Gayle up top alone to battle for our hoofs up the pitch? :lol:

I would laugh so much man.
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

Still be getting his £25K a week so he won't give a f***. Bit like at West Ham where it was said a lot of his injuries were dubious.  He also missed a lot of training sessions because he had to go to his grandmothers funeral, I think he had a lot of Grandmothers
I went out with a girl once and she asked me to kiss her where it was wet and smelly...........So I took her to Middlesbrough

I'm sure Carroll isn't happy he's injured. That doesn't change the fact that he is injured or that he has been frequently injured for long spells throughout his playing career. A £30K a week basic salary with pay as you play bonuses is an amazing deal for him given his injury record.

It's the best trade deal in the history of trade deals, maybe ever.

Well tbf even if he doesn't play another minute he'll have been worth the 30k or whatever a week it is, he did contribute to a few points and  that's worth the 1-2 million he'll have cost. Compare that to some fees and it's quite clearly been value for money in isolation.

The issue is that it's part of a wider problem at the club of avoiding actually trying to get the best team possible and his presence comes at the expense of a better option.

Can't understand how a known crocked player is now long term injured after playing far too many minutes without sufficient recovery.  The mind boggles.

Hence why his pay is affected while injured

He’s still making £20-25k a week. Landed on his feet coming here. £1m pretty much regardless of whether he was fit.

I doubt thee are many experienced PL players earning less than £25K. Even Shortstuff is looking at £20k per week. It's just the going rate.

We knew he was going to play about 10-15 games though and still decided to waste money on him.

And how much would you demand if a PL club wanted you for 10-15 games per season?

I don’t know why the club went there? Can’t blame Carroll in this, no other Premier League club would have given him a deal, he might have dropped a division and maybe got half of that as a basic if someone was daft enough to gamble on him.

Well it wasn't for footballing reasons, of that we can be certain, because no decision is taken for footballing reasons.

It's a puzzler. Can't decide whether adding Marcelino to the mix would help... probably would. At least the Frankenstein would now have legs. Blind and fingerless, but could run... canny.

Don’t forget how they want to give him a new contract.
