Hearing Palace are looking at the big man.

Away from that for a moment anyway, huge season. I'd argue this is his biggest season of his career potentially with his first pre season with us and bundles of flair behind him as well as people capable of crossing it from full backs as well as wingers.

Am a huge fan of him, always preferred him to Sakho (see the show last season around Christmas with Akabusi).

I think we keep him although £22m + would be hard to turn down.

We should keep him, though perhaps not at all cisterne, but seeing how difficult it is to find a decent replacement, the price has to be high

I say keep him, but if they do sell I can see Benteke coming to us.

We have been developing width in defence midfield and up front doesn't make sense to sell andy

If he is fit and would pass a medical and the club can recoup the transfer. Sell

Well that would be the reasoning behind signing him I'd imagine mate

With our recent success rate chasing strikers , better the devil you know in this case .

Besides nearly all our recent acquisitions seem geared to supplying ammunition for plan A(C).

Plan B still required

Carroll is a horrific drain on resources. A reported 90k a week for a player who has 80 league appearances and just over 20 goals in 4 seasons is nothing short of unacceptable.
If anyone is willing to cough up 8 figures for him we should bite their arm off.

Fucking hell, that's 5 goals per season. :roll:

I would still like to see what he can do with a pre-season behind him, I'd hate for him to leave then spend an injury free season elsewhere.
