Carroll`s Disappointment

And so the drought goes on!

Andy Carroll has still to get his first goal for West Ham United since joining on loan from Liverpool.

Last night, against Stoke City, Andy was substituted and didn`t look to be happy about the decision when he walked off the Upton Park pitch, understandably disappointed at making way, however, after the game, Big Sam was understanding of the big-strikers behaviour, remarking to the media,

"People are going to pay particular attention to Andy because he is such a threat, but he should not get too frustrated that he`s not scoring."

"He hardly had a chance tonight, but sooner or later, if we continue to work on him making runs into the box and on the service we provide him from the flanks, eventually he will score."

"He was disappointed when he came off because he wants to score and he wants me to leave him on the pitch for 90 minutes."

"But he has put so much effort in and when there are fresh legs on the bench, I felt it was the best way forward to try and win it."

Which is fair enough but I bet those Stoke defenders heaved a collective sigh of relief when Andy trudged off.
