Is it cursed? It seems that since the stadium was announced as ours Barry Hearn has gone and put some sort of curse on us because not a lot of positivity has come our way since then.
Our only decent striker is now injured and whatever the club says he will be unfit for a few games once he finally does return. All the shit players like Carlton and O’Neil have actually tuned down new offers from us and thought they can get better elsewhere. Seriously think hard about this because players like that shouldn’t be thinking they can get better elsewhere because they are average so that worries me.
Carroll joined us because no other club was prepared to pay the ridiculous 15 Million quid asking price and 80k wages for him, every other target we have gone for has basically turned us down. The last one Mr Arnautović was the best, he doesn’t regard us as a big club and will go elsewhere for his football. He is now linked to Real Betis, REAL BETIS!? Bigger then us?
The other problem was Sam announcing that Carroll is his main striker and that’s it. So as far as other strikers are concerned they will be sitting on the bench hoping Carroll gets injured for a sniff of football. That has now back fired because that was one of the reasons Bony turned us down! I thought the club was changing things to get more goals, in fact nothing is going to change all they are trying to do is find a winger that can score.
Generally wingers are not natural goal scorers unless they cost 40 Million quid and are world class so basically we are hoping that Carroll will score shitloads of goals next season or we will be in the same boat. As for finding another decent striker forget it, what decent striker do you know that would be prepared to sit on the bench and come on for the last 10mins?
