At £3.5m looks a bargain to me at the moment

Dunno about using the word bargain after one game but he did look good yesterday.

Proper strikers movement, pulling defenders all over the place, moving across the back line, holdup play and looking to get in behind. Looks an all rounder.

Yes its very soon, but all early signs are promising. Can see him and Enner forming a good partnership. Don't see where AC fits in especially with Zarate in behind aswell....

Its nice to actually have a few strikers for once to choose from!

I was impressed, absolutely loved his work rate. Hopefully he can keep this up and he will be an important player for us! He was my man of the match in all honesty, he was always wanting the ball and chasing everything.

Played well against Sheff Utd too and in his brief cameo against Palace. Considering he's come from the French 2nd tier I'd say he seems to have adapted rather well so far. Agree entirely about him looking an all-rounder, his overall game seems to be very competent.

They both look like they know where the back of the net is aswell. Long may it continue!

If these 2 do continue as they are and AC gets straight back in the side when fit that will be ridiculous. These 2 have so much more to offer.

That's the best thing about him, his attitude.

You could tell by his interviews when he came here, he WANTS to do well for us and WANTS to give his all in every game.

I hope he becomes a hammers hero because unlike some other heavenly gifted footballers who can't be arsed to perform sometimes, this guy is a grafter and that is what I love to see in a West Ham player :)

Indeed.
Carlton, bless him, used to offer that. And that's the reason, imo, that on his day he was unplayable at times. Those days are sadly gone it seems, but even last season I was pulling my hair out at times that we didn't try to play him in behind when the chance arose
We need a player who offers that option, and it's great that we now seem to have two who can offer alsorts of threats that we didn't get close to posing other teams last season

Well, we certainly have no need to rush him back, like we have had to for most of his West Ham career so far. We can ease him back in, slowly, and carefully. Hopefully that will allow him to put all these foot injuries behind him, and we'll see the best of him (which I don't think we have so far)

Sure, early days, but I do agree the mobility and range of options those two provide makes you wonder how Carroll will fit into our new fluid, mobile, pacy attacking unit...

They have different things to offer.......that's all. To me Sakho still looks very raw, though refreshingly so.

A fit and firing Carroll is an unplayable centre forward. Anyway, it's all about options, different styles..etc.

Far too much of slagging off Carroll. Him and Valencia is what I would be looking at long term. Forming opinions about players so early on in the season is always dangerous. And it also raises unfair expectation on the players involved. Sakho and Valencia have started one PL game together.
