Yes he had a choice Carroll or Bony and because of the shit system he had in his head at the time he made the wrong choice. Before Andy signed there was a great debate on the net about who was the best choice.
I saw Bony play for Vittese when he destroyed Ajax at home with two goals. He was the obvious choice in my eyes but like I said at the time he didn’t fit into the style of football SA had in his head.
It’s ashame because now he would fit right in because we have now started to play like Swansea dishing out a more attacking game. But last week we could all clearly see that without Enner and Co we reverted back to hoofing the fucking ball up to Carroll and hoping for the best until Zarate came on.
Did Allardyce make a mistake? Look at the stats…
Carroll has only scored 9 league goals since he joined back in 2012 where as Bony has scored 22 goals since 2013!!! You can make all the arguments you want about Carroll fact is Bony is less brittle and more potent in front of goal!
