In one sense, Carroll's call up by Woy is good news because it proves that he can achieve his ambitions at West Ham.
However, the timing is unfortunate. If he is picked, and plays a starring role, other clubs may suddenly look to sign him and his price may be jacked up to a level that we cannot afford.
Meanwhile, Carroll may think he is worth every penny of his 100k per week wages and refuse to negotiate a more realistic contract.
Will he be with us next season? We need to sort it out quickly because we don't want to go into August with only Maiga and Carlton as options!
