VAUGHAN TO BE A TERRIER
Carroll blasts Rodgers for firing him out of Anfield
NORWICH striker James Vaughan wants to make his loan at Huddersfield permanent.
Vaughan, 24, netted three times for the Terriers in his first eight games and fans are impressed.
He said: “When I came I wasn’t wanted at Norwich.
“I’m enjoying my time here and if the chance came up to stay I would definitely look into it.”
Vaughan’s established a partnership with another loan cast-off, Leicester’s Jermaine Beckford.
Town coach Glynn Snodin said: “James and Jermaine are both doing a great job for us.” ANDY CARROLL has blasted Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers for not giving him a “fair chance” at Anfield.
The England striker is loving life on loan at West Ham, where he is a big part of boss Sam Allardyce’s plans.
Rodgers fired the £35million man out of Anfield as soon as he could after taking over from Kenny Dalglish in the summer
Carroll said: “I haven’t had a fair chance at Liverpool.
“I was really told I should move to keep playing regular football and then Sam wanted me here and told me I would be playing regular games.
“So it was a no-brainer coming here to play.
“I didn’t really get a chance there. A new manager came in and I wasn’t part of his plans.
“For me to play football, that was my chance to do that. That is why I am here at Upton Park.”
Rodgers doesn’t like playing with a big targetman up front but Carroll insisted there is more to his game than that.
He added: “I think I could fit into every system. I believe in what I can do. He has his beliefs and didn’t think that.
“For me it was better to move on instead of waiting for my chance – which he told me might not come.
“Coming here, I have got a great opportunity to start games and score goals.
“I don’t think I have got a point to prove – that is the wrong way to put it.
“I know what I can do and the ability I’ve got. I know what I am capable of.
“If other people don’t believe it, that is fine. I just get on with it. But, at the end of the day, I know what I can do.”
The giant Geordie has yet to find the net for the Hammers, who thrashed Southampton 4-1 at the weekend.
In fact, his last Premier League goal came back in April.
But Allardyce insisted: “Andy will score sooner or later. It’s not about him scoring, it’s about us winning.
“The old saying is if the front man plays well, the team plays well.
“Andy was putting more and more pressure on Southampton and their defenders, and they cracked in the end.”
