I didnt say he was worth the money, i said it wasnt unexpected by me and alot of West Ham supporters to see him go for so much.
I watched him, Cole, Lampard, Ferdinand, Defoe and many others play at a young age and when the broke through into the West Ham side. Carrick always
impressed more than any of them and always looked a much better player. If you look at Lampard and Carrick, Carrick always looked a hell of alot
better than Lampard ever and still did and thats saying something. All of these players and many more looked and showed great promise at West Ham but
you only got to see how good they really was when they left. All of them that left West Ham went for quite alot of money and no-one has said they are
not worth it and are actually worth millions more now.
So basically, sit back, relax and watch him and within two years you'll be saying what a player, hes got to be worth 30million...
