I like him as a player and that's what I generally go for when buying and playing players but my first two seasons in charge of Liverpool he's been injured 4 times ( twice for 4 months each ) and only played 13 games for me with a measly 3 goal return.

I also have Suarez ( 25 + goals a season) and Ze Eduardo who has also got me 20 + goals a season and I have Lakuku as a back-up.

I play a modified 4-1-2-1-2 as I thought the 4 strikers I had would cover that formation well but with Caroll being so injury prone it's been a struggle keeping the rotation going but I dont wanna change formation as it has helped me to a a 2nd and 3rd place finish and got me through all competitions.

Should I sell him and try and get 15-20m for him and buy a replacement ? I have heard Hulk is a great goalscorer and If I do get him, I can move Ze Eduardo to MF just behind Gerrard along with Pastore.

What do you guys think ?

I might put him up when he gets back from injury as no-one seems to offer when players are injured.

Shame really. I'd like to see what he could do if he played a full season. Personally I think he's got the potential to get 30 + goals but with him being so injury prone he probably couldnt manage a full season.

Anyone else play Carroll and have any problems with him ?

I've have him myself in many saves and when he plays well he can be a beast. but too often he ends up having a dry spell or getting injured..
so I think you should sell him mate.

Thanks for the info on him. Glad to see it's not just mine that's getting injured all the time.

Hmm interesting. Maybe keep him until end of 3rd season ( Should play atleast 20 games when he comes back and doesnt get injured again ) and see what he does. Thanks for the advice guys.
