Carlton Cole

Postby JLP123 on Sun Apr 17, 2011 3:43 pm

Personally, I would like him to stay. I think we play better with him and he is usually a threat to opposition CB's

Certainly, if we do go down he would be a huge asset. I reckon he'd be prolific in the Championship. Doubt he'll stay though. A few teams will definitely be after him.

Keep either way. We couldn't afford much better. Despite what a lot of people say, he is a proven Premier League forward.

Sell, sell, sell. I am absolutely fed up with him. I think he has been with us far too long and should have gone years ago, just like a load of other players should have and for the record, he won't be prolific anywhere he goes.

If the worst happens, Cole and Ba would ****ing tear that division apart.

I'm not really bothered one way or the other but if we go down i am pretty confident Carlton will not come down with us

If we go down CC will be part of the inevitable exodus of saleable assets, as per last time.

Did anybody else feel he could have made a bit more of one of those two lofted punts played up to him yesterday that put him clear in on goal ? I know he was unfairly charged off the ball by Dunne for the first one, but I still felt that he should have made a bit more of it. A touch more pace and he would have

In the first half he was taking Dunne for a ride. Had Dunne been rightly sent off it would have been a totally different game. In the first half against Vidic a couple of weeks back he was all over him aswell and won a penalty. I understand your reasons for wanting to get rid of him but I think all he needs is a good striker partner to compliment him.

Let's not kid ourselves here lads.

If we go down then basically our whole strike force leaves.

Keane goes back to Tottenham after his loan deal ends, same as Obinna at Inter.
Ba would no doubt go for the same price we paid - £6m?
Cole is easily worth £7m or so to the likes of Newcastle who will be in the market for a replacement for Carrol.
Piquionne might stay but we will probably take £1m and get him off the wage bill.

I can see us going for the likes of Nicky Maynard who is very highly rated at Bristol City and only has 12 months left on his contract so is up for sale. Middlesboro can't afford Kris Boyd so he will be available and then you also have David Goodwillie at Dundee United who we've been linked with before.

Also I'd hope Hines is given a new chance and a chance to see if he be a useful squad player.

Demba Ba has played in the second tier of German football with Hoffenhiem so he might stay?

I would hate to have Kris Boyd at West Ham... not good enough.

Feel sorry for the guy.....just because's he's big we've done nothing but punt long balls at his head for the last 3 years.

Keep him. Too often he gets called for fouls when he gets even the slight bit physical and feel he could get away with a lot more next year where they seem to let guys play a lot more physical.

The deciding factor for me is that he rarely strikes the ball sweetly when he is given a chance...too many scuffs. Even in a more productive team that will still be a failing

I'd sell him whatever division we are in next season. Just my opinion - before everyone slags me off.

Keane and Obinna are better, although they are very different types of centre forward to Cole.

However Piq and Ba are pretty much the same type of forward as Cole and they are also better - in my opinion.

Sell.
