Well it was pretty obvious that when we made a bid for Negredo something was up. Literally the next day after ITK’ers were saying Carroll will sign by Tuesday there was a VERY BIG reason why Carroll hadn’t signed.
He wants a pay rise. I’m not quite sure who he thinks he is, how can he demand 100k a week when he hasn’t even scored 10 goals!? Ok maybe if he had scored 15-20 goals in the season then maybe he could sit in front of the board and say look I can score so pay me what I want!
Personally I think we would be lucky to get 15 goals a season out of Carroll. For 50k a week I’d accept that but not for 100k add to that the 15 million we could get such a good striker it’s ridiculous. The club needs to tell him to go do one and look abroad, trust me for that kind of money the club can find a striker that will bag 15-20 goals in a season.
Can I suggest….
Rhodes 12 million plus 30k a week Hooper 10 million plus 40k a week Lambert 12 million plus 50k a week Remy 10 million plus 80k a week
