A game is coming up tomorrow, against a West Ham, currently in a 19th place in the league. As important as it is for them (I could not care less), I find it more important for us. For us, to be able to reach that magic 4th plact we could kill for, it is important not to lose against clubs like West Ham. We simply can not afford it.
Rumors says, that Andy Carroll can make his debut tomorrow. I can’t say I speak for all of us, but tomorrow when I’m standing at the pub, watching the game with enthusiams as I always do, I will be wishing to see Carroll.
Liverpool’s number nine.
How do I think he will manage on the pitch?
Let’s take it from the beginning, shall we?
I’ll have to admit, I did not think that Carroll would keep his form he had in the championschip, with 17 goals. I thought that that was it, he could not keep up with the high press in Premiership.
Guess I was wrong. I hate it when I am wrong. But I’ll admit it. Seeing him in Newcastle this season was a real eye opener. From the first game that season, against Aston Villa, he scored an impressive 11 times. He scored against us, Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea. Basically against all big clubs.
Except Manchester United. But I have a feeling he will do that too, this season.
I think, as we all said the minute the deal with Carroll was done, that he and Suarez will be one of Premier Leagues best partnerships. Suarez, a fast and sneeky kind of player, would serve delicious passes to long and natural scorer Carroll, or do brilliant crosses to a Carroll with a speed we’ve never seen before and a height most defenders only can dream about.
The partnership would be a fact, and those £50 millions we’d spent on them would be nothing compared to what they do to the club. Because quite honestly, I don’t care about the pricetag on players, just as long as they score/defend as well as they are supposed to do, playing in a club like Liverpool.
As some of you may know, we already have established a good link between Carroll and another player in our squad. Our capten, Gerrard. The two of them played together in the game agianst France, and they did it well.
The obvious question now, is how we should play, with both Carroll and Suarez in the squad. I would want to have a 4-3-3 line up, with Kuyt up front with Suarez and Carroll. Or why not a 5-3-2, or a 4-3-2-1?
I can’t decide, and thank god we have a much better trainer then me! What do you think?
So, last thing, what do everyone think of the “Sweet Carroll Nine” song? I mean, I think it is catchy!
And for the game tomorrow, I would put my money on 0-3 !
