This is actually massive because the manager has admitted what most of us have been saying for years that you can’t rely on Andy Carroll.
This will now spell the end of Andy’s disappointing and financially disastrous spell at our club.
The only question is when? Im guessing any reasonable offer that comes in will now see him go….
We haven’t seen much if either tbh. But rumour is Obiang going to be sold off and Nordtveit will officially be his replacement.
Thing is I actually rate Obiang and at times I’m convinced he should have came on for games last season.
Ok we haven’t seen much of the Viking yet but first signs weren’t very encouraging.
Obiang or Nordtveit?
But I seriously think it’s time to go for his own good.
After a night of sleeping on it I’ve come to this conclusion…
Last season Antonio had a blinder, almost made HOTY and cries for a place in the England squad, but Bilic had other ideas.
He wanted to upgrade the wing so got Feghouli. But how do you drop Antonio? Well he thought he could convert him into a RWB.
It isn’t working and not only that the fella is wasted there when clearly he can score goals.
So what now? He won’t become a winger anymore unless we are decimated with injuries (which looks like happening) otherwise this talent will just become a bench warmer.
For his own good Antonio will need to be sold because he’s being totally wasted at our club now.
I mean seriously did Bilic seriously think kebab boy Tore was even more important in that role then Antonio!?!?
Last season we scored 65 goals. If you do the Maths we’ll probably break even…
Fenghouli: at least 5
Payet: 5 – 10
Noble: up to 5
Carroll: 10-15 if he stays fit
Add goals from the rest of the team we’ll be there are there abouts. Thing is the top striker will improve our league position so as long as the board are happy with a top 10 then no probs but they don’t want to be saying ‘yeah we are now looking to improve’ because that ain’t gonna happen.
Thing that worries me is our defence. Couple of injuries we’re fucked…
