I personally use Carroll as my back up striker for Suarez. He's not very useful though, so I only really play/bring him on if I have a comfortable lead or for an easy game against a lower league team.

Although if you really want to play him I would recommend playing a very direct style and getting Charlie Adam to aim for the far post and place Andy there from corners. Although in my past experience he hasn't scored a single header in 20+ corners. Also set your full-backs to cross often.

Hope that helps :)

P.S I'm planning to sell him in the January transfer window by the way :P

Got him on loan with CSKA Moscow not a bad player, more assists than goals though but not world class. he's in liverpool reserves and played about 6 games for them in 2 seasons. think he's worth around 7 mill now so i would just get rid asap.

haha after his contract ran out on my save I think he just retired after about 10 games over 5 seasons in the reserves. hes no wer to be found on my save game now and its only 2016. I think that says it all, get rid. And this is coming from a geordie who loves newcastle and has met the guy a few times.

Play a very direct style with full backs set to cross often, play Downing because hes a brilliant crosser but invest in a right winger... play him as a target man with balls to head, formation 442 with suarez along side as a teraquesta and team playmaker :) sorted ;)

How Much Is Carroll Worth In This One?

Sell him early! Get a high upside replacement like Jordan Ayew or Kadlec instead. You won't regret it.
