Andy Carroll: Has admitted that his future at West Ham depends on Liverpool

Carroll was one of the stars of West Ham's 4-2 victory over Reading, and received a rapturous ovation from the Upton Park crowd both during and after the game.

Asked after the win if it was to be Carroll's last game for the club, Allardyce praised his striker.

"I hope not," Allardyce said.

"I think that we all know we would like to secure his signature. We have got to sort that out with Liverpool and hopefully that becomes fruitful.

"The fans have made it plain and clear what they would like to see with Andy."

Carroll himself spoke after the game regarding his future, and believes that it is up to Liverpool to decide his fate.

"It's not up to me to decide," said Carroll. "We need to see what Liverpool have to say and see what West Ham have to say.

"West Ham is a great club and I've enjoyed every minute of it."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
