West Ham fans could not believe Andy Carroll’s horror miss against Bournemouth

A number of horrified West Ham fans took to Twitter straight after the 2-0 loss to Bournemouth to criticise Andy Carroll, after the lanky striker missed what was basically an open goal at the Vitality Stadium.

The England international, making only his second Premier League start of the season, blazed over the bar from just a few yards out as he failed to take the chance to half the deficit.

The 30-year-old set up a glorious chance for Michail Antonio originally, but after the ball rebounded back to him, he got well under his effort, almost sending it out of the stadium.

Sadly, the miss was the icing on a particular nasty cake for the Hammers, as star striker Marko Arnautovic was dropped from the squad for the game against the Cherries amid speculation about his future.
