So basically it looks like andy carroll comes to west ham, plays about 30 matches in three years, gets paid £120k p/w then ****'s off to spain. The last time we had a decent striker who wanted to play for us was probably tony cottee.

"Sevilla would have had an obligation to buy Carroll for £8.6m (€12m) if he played 60 per cent of their games"

WTF??? What would have happened then if by some crazy twist of fate AC ended up remaining injury free and scoring a ton of goals, which I personally think he'd be capable of? We would have looked right mugs. May as well thrown in Carrick, a gold-plated Rolls and a rare first-edition of Men Only signed by the Daves as well!

The ageing 30-something TC rather than the 21-year-old TC who pissed off to Everton I presume?

Erm no Cottee jumped ship quicker than the Captain of the Costa Concordia. Not sure how committed young TC was to us. So now we have an Andy Carroll who knows his not wanted! He shall be filled with confidence if and when he gets fit and now we want too sign Rob Green Costa Concordia reference applies here too) and after rejecting Barton we may be renewing our interest in him. Don't you just love that heart warming whiff of stability surrounding our Club. Thanks Jarvo

I just see a dartboard. Robin Wales Newham mayor seeing his mosh always gives me the urge to throw darts in his general direction. Fella loves a photo opportunity whilst he makes moves to displace the homeless of our borough, telling them to go up north to be re-housed and at the same time selling off land in our Borough to rich property developers. Mans a prune and don't get me started on that baboon Boris. Right I'm off. Have a nice day people.
