Although, due to the financial implications associated with the FFP rules, it seems unlikely that West Ham will be able to hang onto Andy Carroll.
However, that hasn`t stopped Sam Allardyce championing the striker for a place in the England side encouraging Roy Hodgson to play Andy alongside Wayne Rooney whilst also dismissing any inference that Roy would be scared to do so in fear of being labeled along ball merchant,
Speaking about the role Big Sam perceives Andy would play for England, Big Sam has remarked,
"Roy would be scared to do it because of the reaction he`d get."
"He would be accused of a direct approach and people would be on his case."
"But playing Andy does not make you a long-ball team, it gives you extra options. He is good on the floor and others can play off him."
"Andy and Wayne Rooney together would work very well and it would benefit Wayne, who is often carrying England`s hopes all on his own."
"I`m not going for any of that stuff about Rooney being on the way down."
"Against us he was really good and some of his passing was excellent."
"He can play anywhere as far as I`m concerned but I do think he works well off of a dominant striker."
"Michael Owen always used to say he had his most productive spell when Emile Heskey was up front with him. Heskey did not score many goals but Owen got plenty because of him."
"And the bonus with Andy Carroll is he is a better goal-scorer than Heskey."
He certainly is and I reckon Big Sam makes perfect sense with those comments, how about you!
