He’s been terribly appalling, from his lackluster confidence in front of goal to the lad’s poor work rate on the pitch, the man that at one point cost us a preposterous amount of £35 million has undeniably been the flop of the season so far. Talking about Liverpool’s flop of the season, I simply cannot find a player on our squad that can be held in comparison with Andy Carroll. Yes, I’ve got to admit the fact that the likes of Charlie Adam and Jordan Henderson have obviously had a dull and mediocre season, but Andy Carroll’s abominable contribution towards the team has been an utter distaste.

Interested to know why he has to go? Or why is it that he must leave? Here are the reasons.

He can’t combine well with Suarez

Always lethargic when those two are meant to pair-up with one another. Unlike Carroll, Suarez always works hard to go past the defenders down both flanks. Suarez is one of those men, like Downing and Bellamy, who often fights with all his will to try and get a goal for the big centre forward. The Uruguayan international often plays with enjoyable fashion, making teasing runs from the side of the box, hence terrorizing the opposition defence.

In order to get goals, with sufficient amount of delivered crosses and delightful long-range passes, Carroll has to make a few smart runs that are able to trick the defenders instead of standing inside the box like a statue waiting for the ball to drop directly at his feet.

Still unsure?

Valencia’s Roberto Soldado and Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez are perfect examples, both of whom are actually a lot smaller compared to the English striker but are doing  a better job for their respective teams.

To raise funds for the transfer window

I think it is all but certain that manager Kenny Dalglish is set to land a new striker at Anfield come the end of the next transfer window. The shortlist is long, but it sure includes Napoli’s Edinson Cavani, Valencia’s Roberto Soldado and Villarreal’s Giuseppe Rossi. With an astounding £64 million spent on trio Andy Carroll, Charlie Adam and Jordan Henderson last summer, it certainly wouldn’t be easy to make expensive signings. And the people mentioned on Liverpool’s shortlist will definitely cost the board a lot of good money.

Hence, offloading Andy Carroll would be an ideal way to ease any financial issues at the club.

Youngsters are coming up

17-year-old prospect Raheem Sterling has announced his arrival in the Barclays Premier League. Despite being brought into the game with only less than a quarter  left against Wigan last week, he has already shown signs of his capabilities. His pace down the left flank was tremendous and that was the only positive during the embarrassing 2-1 defeat against Roberto Martinez’s men.

Raheem Sterling? That’s not all. I hope everyone has heard of Dani Pacheco, [Good News] he will be back from his loan spells at  Rayo Vallecano and Atletico Madrid at the end of the season. However, one thing that frustrates me most is that this kid’s been badly overlooked. This article here says it all. He’s already been remarkable at international level by winning the Golden Boot in the 2010 European Under-19 Championship, so what has stopped Roy Hodgson and what is stopping Kenny Dalglish from giving him a try?

Nevertheless, young guns like Adam Morgan, Suso and Seyi Ojo will soon be making a name for themselves. The 17-year-old Adam Morgan has already been dubbed as The New Robbie Fowler following his magnificent displays for the Liverpool Youth Academy.

The Liverpudlians all believe that Carroll’s time has come to an end. Not to mention a big name signing, perhaps Adam Morgan himself is already good enough to bump Carroll onto the bench.
