If it wasn't for the stupid price tag it isn't an issue-

Ba having good few games where as Carroll is an England international but just off form slightly overweight, a pisshead and a bad lawyer away from string of convictions...still Carroll

Will have to see how Ba continues. Didn't really see him as a stunning player at West Ham but he's been great so far. Think Carroll will be better though.

They'd be quality upfront together. Ba's pace and strength and Carroll's height and physical presence. They'd be a serious pairing!

On current form it's Ba but Carroll hasn't been playing poorly either.

If it was Carroll's form this time last year vs Ba then it'd be Carroll all day

Ba looks the much better player at the moment because Newcastle are playing to his strengths, just like the way when Andy Carroll was there.

Thats not the Liverpool way, the Liverpool style is all out passing and moving,running with the ball, etc. This does not suit Carrolls style in the slightest, he is not comfortable on his feet and is more of a target man than anything else. Liverpool's style suits Saurez and the likes of Torres, they would do well to cut their losses on Carroll and get a player similar in the mould of above two.

value for money = Ba. he has form too, carrlol is off form and badly at that.

newcastle have him plus 35million to potentially spend, liverpool have carrlol warming the bench. newcastle seriously got the better deal here.

So you'd prefer a striker who doesn't score goals over a striker who does score goals?
