West Ham star Andy Carroll goes against Allardyce's advice by not changing style

West Ham United striker Andy Carroll has risked the wrath of his manager by making some rather controversial comments.

West Ham United's Andy Carroll is adamant that he will not change his style of play, despite a succession of injury problems. 

Carroll is on his way back from an ankle injury, but he insists that he will continue to put in full-blooded performance on the pitch. 

"I think I’ll still go in for them all," he told The Chronicle. "I am going to go for everything. I give it my all every time.”

The words that he is unwilling to change his style are likely to frustrate his manager Sam Allardyce

The Hammers boss had commented that Carroll needed to ensure that he did not put himself at risk just last month by pulling out of risky tackles, but it seems that his advice will go unheeded. 

“I think he is so brave and fearless that I fear that some of the injuries actually come from that,” Allardyce said previously.

“He doesn’t fear any situation. But sometimes he goes into those areas with no fear and it can be a little dangerous in terms of injuries.

“I think that with experience, you just know what you can win and what you definitely might not be able to win. That might steer him clear of an injury or two that might occur. I think Andy has got to manage himself."

Carroll has played just 18 times for the club since singing back in 2013 in what has been a frustrating time for him.

Every time the England international has threatened to get back to fitness he seems to have been struck by a new problem and he has had to spend a lot of time on the treatment table, as a result.

It appears that he will not be taking a more cautious style from now on, though, and he will be hoping that his committed performances impress Allardyce.

Carroll has more competition at the London club than ever before because of the arrivals of Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho over the summer. 

The pair are both injured at the moment, meaning the 25-year-old played for 90 minutes against Everton at the weekend. 

His performance was a decent one, but he will know that he will have to start hitting the back of the net soon if he is to retain his spot.

West Ham's next game comes against Carroll's former club Newcastle United, and he will be aiming to show the Magpies exactly what they are missing if given the chance to start again.
