Come On Hughton - Give Carroll A Chance!

14 October 2010 02:19
Chris Hughton has praised frontman Andy Carroll but won't say if he will go back to the 4-4-2 system that was such a success last season for the team and for Carroll. Chris Hughton: "I think Andy is a young player that has made great progress, and we are delighted to have secured his services here for the next five years, but he's a player that has earned it. "For us, the fact that he wasn't involved with an England shirt over the last few days has been a benefit for us because we have had his services at the training ground. "But the best way for people to talk about Andy is what he does in a black and white shirt and it's important that he maintains the levels and standards that he has set. "He is a young player that still has aspects of his game that he can improve, but he's a willing learner. "If he keeps going the way he's going, I'm sure at some stage he will do that (play for England)."
