In the reflective chaos of Arsenal Football Club’s standard summer transfer debacle; it could go unnoticed that Liverpool are trying to covertly ship out the butt of every Premier League joke for the last 18 months.
With transfer rumours suggesting that Andy Carroll, one time the heir to Alan Shearer and the most gloriously haired man in the North who now plies his trade as Liverpool bench warmer and reason for Newcastle’s success, could be shipped out on loan. We here at WhatCulture Towers do not only see this news as Liverpool covering their blushes but as a great chance for Andy Carroll to revitalise his career and bring that well loved shine back to his locks.
So here are 5 reasons Andy Carroll should leave Liverpool; it’s the best for everyone.
1. Brendan Rogers’ Tactics Won’t Suit Him
Whilst Andy Carroll fits the bill of a ‘classic British No. 9’ being big, brutish, in possession of a large forehead and a love affair with alcohol; that isn’t the a-typical kind of forward Brendan Rogers will want to use in his team of technically adept passers who enjoy walking the ball in to the net.
A large forward to lump the ball to isn’t the archetypal strategy for a man who bases his football on technical ability and if you ignore considerations that this makes most of Liverpool’s team redundant it makes Andy Carroll fruitless in the squad about to be developed.
Andy Carroll is not a bad player, he proved at Newcastle that if his strengths are utilised properly then he can be a real threat, but will he get that at a team who don’t have a soul focus? Whose focus is passing and slowly building the play by team unity. Not the individual strength of an individual, who can just as much fall over as well as rocket the ball near the net and have commentators saying ‘he’s back’.
In the right set-up he could be a real threat, he wasn’t in that set up under Dalglish whose tactics were akin to putting him on the pitch and hoping her turned in to a £35 million player and he won’t be in that set up under Brendan Rogers.
