And still we await the first goal, in a West Ham shirt, from Andy Carroll.
According to the statisticians it I snow
But, it is not a statistic that concerns Big Sam with the boss remarking after our gallant draw with Manchester City, on Saturday evening,
"We`ll keep on practicing; keep encouraging Andy to get in the right areas and on the end of more deliveries into the box."
"In the end percentages will pay off for him. The better the service, the better the quality, eventually the goal will come for him."
"He had an overhead kick which was goal-bound until it took a slight deflection and an even better chance in the first half."
"If he keeps getting in the right areas eventually it will go in for him, whether it`s off the head, knee, shoulder arm or whatever. Get the first one and I`m sure he will be off and running."
Let`s hope so shall we!
