almost cleared out my transfer kitty on buying andy carroll, he cant hit a barn door with a banjo, fifteen games in and one goal to show for it, spent £13 million on him and he is ****!! lucky to play a 6 out of 10 on a good day.

Strange, Carroll usually in good form and scoring on my different saves- Do you play him in the correct role? I would use Target Man- Attack.

He needs a good team around him.

Never plays well for me at Newcastle. I generally sell him.

I bought him for Liverpool at the start of my second season, and he hit 23 in 28 games. How are you using him, and what team are you playing as?

his ca and pa are very low
so before starting a save i normally go on the editor and change a few things around to make it more realistic (eg, improving andy carroll) this could be classed as cheating but its just makeing the game more realistic
what do u think?

SI are generally correct with the majority of ratings so perhaps next year we'll see a bump in his ability.

Next year?

Do they not do ratings alterations in the January patch? As he does seem rather poorly represented.

Carrols stats aren't bad mate. You must be using him wrong...

Fair point, but he needs to be consistent to get a raise.

im playing as aston villa and using him as a deep lying forward to link the play up, he's unbelievebly bad whenever he gets the ball he gives it away his shots go into orbit and he tires rapidly. *****!!!!!

There is no way in **** he should be playing as a DLF. Target Man or Adv. Forward always always always.
