I’ve heard and seen a number of different Liverpool fans express different opinions regarding Andy Carroll. Some don’t appear to have any patience for the 22-year-old, whilst others are slightly more positive and believe that the best is yet to come.
Almost everybody on the other hand would like to see Carroll replicate his form from his last season in a Newcastle shirt.
Whilst he’s never quite been on that level when he’s played for Liverpool there have been signs that he’s approaching his best form and flickers of the brilliance he once possessed. Consider his first League goal against Everton, a simple, well-taken strikers finish that will hopefully build up his confidence and lead to more of the same.
More importantly still, he’s full of energy, chases after everything and always causes havoc for defenders. I’d liken him to a talented Kevin Davies. I’ve even seen some people argue that he gets to involved in build-up play and that he’s best suited staying in the box and waiting for service. That’s an interesting point and it’s well worth considering.
Whenever Carroll gets his head to the ball it ends up back with the opposition because there’s never anybody near him waiting to feed off of his knock-downs.Liverpool either need to offer Andy Carroll more support in this regard or play him further up the pitch where he can just concentrate on finishing.
