Had a good game yesterday - put himself about which is something weve lost recently.

Reminded me of the old Carroll somewhat, especially the shot he had with his back to goal on the edge of the box.

I loved his effort but can AC do that week in , no, however effort alone is not needed it’s goals .

I felt he was trying to carry the team , show them this is the effort you need to play for us, however most who you wanted to respond weren’t getting it, especially JL who in comparison was a disgrace.

We paid nothing for him so I expect very little but if his enthusiasm rubs off on say Anderson then job done.
I wouldn’t start him in most games as of course we have Wilson but if I had to pick a number 2 he’s just gone up a notch, saying that and I’m not being a kunt but we should be above this now .

Before yesterday most of us would not have him starting , that’s the dilemma with him

Good comment. I didn’t want him anywhere the side, but yesterday he showed that if fully fit he can be a handful for the opposition still and that’s a bonus

Was surprised at his fitness levels tbh. He’ll be gutted he missed those chances

He got us pushing and playing further up the pitch.

Fitness has to be managed but he should be starting up too with Wilson as much as possible.

In my view the best system is with any tactical acumen something like this

         Caroll Wilson
               ASM
   Almiron Hayden Shortstaff
Lewis Fernandez Schar Murphy
                 Dubravka
I looked into the eye of the Island and what I saw was beautiful.

Would worry massively about that defence.

Murphy is nowhere near a right back, Manquillo far, far superior there and Lewis looks really poor.

Carroll really impressed me yesterday though, fair play to him.

Nedum Onuoha gone under the radar with this one; was saying Sheff U should sign the big man  :aww: Where do the BBC keep finding these cretins

“I think because of the fact they have scored nine goals in the league this year. I think they need to bring in a striker who is a different type of threat to what they have tried so far.

“For me, somebody with a point to prove, because for the past couple of years he has not done much at all, even if it was to be a loan, is for them to bring in an Andy Carroll, so they have got an aerial threat.

“Not just to score headers in the box and so on. It means they can get the ball front to back and bring in their attacking players in a different sort of way – So, bring someone in who brings in a sense of chaos and just go for it.”

TBF if the only game you have seen Carroll play this season is Sheff Utd then he looked good.
