Convincing points mate. Catch 22 sotuation for me. If he proves his fitness/form to Conte the siren voices will be telling us to "keep him, keep him" but if he breaks down again we continue to be saddled with an expensive dud who it will be increasingly difficult to shift. I dread to think how much the useless article has cost us in transfer fees and wages since he joined.BCHammer wrote:Just lack of options for me.

While he is still our player I would play Sakho who is, imo, the best striker on our books. And if the dwarf tells Moyes he can't play him because of the appearance clause he's rumoured to have I would, frankly, tell the little cunt to stuff the job up his harris. And that would start a whole new debate. :i am genuinely amused:
Sakho is out of the picture, injured or otherwise - forever hopefully
Chicharito is woefully out of form and confidence, he cant play as a loan striker and I dont think the solid Huddersfield back line will change that for him. He couldnt even score against Shrewsbury to give him some confidence FFS
Antonio is out
Martinez wont get a look in
So the default option is Carroll - who did score two very good goals in his last game and maybe does have confidence - even if it is only to prove himself to Conte. Im OK with that to get 3pts on Saturday.
Apparently he's scored 25 goals for us which is working out at well over £1 million a bloody goal unless I've overestimated his salary. What a bloody awful piece of business. Thank you Mr Bloody Allardyce.
