Wouldn't surprise me if Carroll has had his contract paid up but Reid is contracted until doomsday as far as I remember so I guess it's more likely he's been pl;aced on the transfer list.


Seems it is injury related


Yes it is. Seems the knackers yard beckons again.

If it looks like a cunt, walks like a cunt, and talks like a cunt it's either Boris Johnson or Jeremy Corbyn.

Seems a tad convenient. Maybe they are both pulling a Sakho?
When did Reid play to get that injury and Andy played 45 mins?

This shows just how ridiculous giving Reid a long term deal was.
Given Sullivan is meant to be an astute businessman, just how do you hand an injury prone 30 year old centre-back a half decade deal worth (a reported) £70k per week?
Much like AC we're stuck with the player and contract until the bitter end now.

Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.

Who cares, squad fillers now.

It makes me laugh how some people think these players deliberately injure (or fake injury) themselves, just to pocket the money.

I've never met any professional sportsperson who would rather sit on their arse raking it to actually doing the job they're paid for.

No doubt someone will come back about Carroll not looking after himself, and there is clearly an element of truth in that, but that's not understanding the phycological effect of being injured and the associated boredom. Some can handle it better than others.

I’m just sick of Carrols injury’s now ...he’s had chance after chance after chance it’s a fuckin joke now.
Reid is getting just as bad and hasn’t played well for a long time anyway so it’s time to just get rid now even if it’s a deal to pay them off.
Carrol is not capable of carrying out his duty as a professional footballer anymore....if he was your dog you would have decided the kindest thing to do for him would be to put him to sleep...a long time ago.
I’m sick of reading like I did just a couple of days ago quotes from him saying he’s hoping to get the full pre season in and start the season fit and firing blah blah blah...heard it so many times it makes me sick...enough is enough.
Get rid we don’t have to pay him or worry about him anymore...let our medical team concentrate on keeping our squad fit without using all their time on useless cases.

Clever cunt that Carroll, he has taken West Ham for millions. If he was a decent cunt he would just fucking retire, but he won’t coz he can scam us for a boat load of cash before that day arrives.

Not sure about Winnie, but if he was back in NZ I’m sure they would’ve already Haka’d his head off.

You might not have met them, but I’ve no doubt that we’ve seen and know of a number of players that have done exactly that.

Sorry but that is a load of bollocks do you remember Winston Bogarde at Chelsea
https://www.theguardian.com/football/20 ... -interview
He felt ever so sorry for earning millions for just 12 games, give me break. It’s not like the old days, Carroll couldn’t give two fucks about the hammers he’s a fucking Geordie fan.

If he was any man at all, he would have gone all out visiting specialists, boot manufacturers, fitness guru's, any kind of new developers and existing specialists in sport, to try and either rectify these problems or some new innovators with ideas on running etc. Fuck me he has enough money to do it off his own back. But no go on holidays have a good time and piss it up, play a friendly and get crocked AGAIN!!!!!!
He's a fucking parasite and should have been fucked off a long long time ago.
There's kids up and down the country that would love to be in his position, utter fucking waste of skin. No other club would have put up with this shit, nor should we.
And as for the other gobshite, he can fuck off n all, he wasn't missed last season, we were shit with him, and shit without him.
