it says that andy carroll has the potential to be a quality player but at the moment he is playin pretty poor. is there anyway i can improve him buy tutor'n or different styles of play? i really want him to be a top player for liverpool.

sorry m8 iv seen his potential and he doesnt become a world class striker, ur better off selling him while hes still valuable because after the 1st or 2nd season he loses value rapidly...
how much did you get for him?
15mil, u have to admit we did overpay for him...
Yes you did.

(NUFC Fan)
overrated striker indeed
Absolutely over-rated. I've never seen him become prolific or improve statistically in any dramatic way.
the reason he sucks because he's too old, it'd be nice if he's 18 and you can find someone such as kuyt to tutor him
If you look at his stats on the game he is good! Not many people like him coz there like 'Ah his acceleration is 9 he's crap!' lol... He will kill defenders if you play the ball to his head.

Play Really wide and set your full backs to 'cross ball often' and 'cross from deep', the more balls you put in the air the more headers he will get on target or knock it down for another team mate.

He is invaluable from set pieces too! Set free kick takers to 'aim for best header' and get him to attack far post... LETHAL! :)
He has been an invaluable player for Liverpool on many saves I have seen him on. He was always in my England team when I played him (TM to head) and scored plenty of goals. Fantastic player when he wants to be.
i have just signed carlos fierro and he hasn't been granted a work permit, how do i appeal for one?
In my game he went from potential quality to useful and that was with me playing him, he chipped in with 10 goals alongside Suarez. I sold him for £9.75m to Arsenal, they never play him AT ALL, no debut and he is listed for loan. Brought in Cavani as his replacement and he has scored 25 in 20 games 10 assists avg rating 8.02 and Suares has played better as a result to.
I always play him on 2nd half.
and he's always be super sub in my game.
To over-rated, has not ball control or skill. You're best choice would be telling you're team to aim for his head, that's the only way I can see him performing for you. Also, Fierro is a fantastic player after time.
If you want to keep Carroll i surgest you play him away from home in a 4-5-1 formation.
Something like this...


Kelly Carragher Wilson Enrique

Downing Gerrard Adam Lucas Maxi


Play a sort of Direct football style and he can deliver fairly well, also doesn't work well with Suarez so if you want Suarez to perform play him with either Kuyt behind him or get Cavani, much better than Carroll as a target man.
