Responding to a piece by the Liverpool Echo surrounding ex-signing Andy Carroll’s time at the club, some Reds fans have flocked to social media and outlined why they think he isn’t the worst signing in our Premier League history. 

Carroll, who made a total of 58 appearances for us, scoring 11 goals and assisting six others in all competitions as per Transfermarkt, signed for £35 million back in the 2011 January transfer window – turning a few heads in the process.

It’s safe to say that the current Newcastle forward didn’t exactly pay back his lofty price tag at Anfield, making just two appearances during the 2012/2013 season in what proved to be his final campaign for Liverpool before eventually joining West Ham.

Is Andy Carroll the worst signing in Liverpool's history?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, after a handful of great moments, including a first half brace at home to Manchester City during a 3-0 romp and his late winner against Everton in the 2012 FA Cup semi-final, some supporters have stuck up for Carroll on social media – with one fan also calling Alberto Aquilani a worse signing. 

Here’s what they had to say.
