| Andy Caroll passed his medical at West Spam prior to a £15m move. Still about £10m too much, but could be worse, they could have paid what Liverpool paid for him. |
What did they spend? Most of the Torres moniez I guess. Which was £50m correct?
Liverpool spent 35mil on Carroll. Silly money but to be honest its not AC's fault that Liverpool paid over the odds for him on a deadline day transfer. And he in no way deserves the 'donkey' tag that has been lumped with him because of the expectations surrounding his price. He's looked excellent for us this season on loan whilst fit, definitely worth more than 5 million.
Now that he is all but a done deal we can focus on bolstering the rest of our team. We've already brought in a Champions League Left-back in Rat, more competition for keeper in Adrian, I think we need another striker, a winger and a centre-back and we'll be set to build on last season.
With the lure of a young England striker to aim at and the up-coming move to the Olympic Stadium of 54,000 seats West Ham is a team on the up. 3 years ago we nearly went into administration, today we've just signed the most expensive English transfer of all time for a cut price and finished 10th in the last campaign. I'm a very happy Hammer.
