Andy Carroll criticises West Ham chant and says abuse made happy spell a nightmare

Andy Carroll criticized a West Ham chant and claimed that the taunts he endured turned his successful run with the Hammers into a nightmare.

As most people are aware, Andy Carroll, a former West Ham striker, married into a family of supporters when he began dating Billi Mucklow.

And it was wonderful to see him accompany some of them in traveling to Holland to watch West Ham play AZ Alkmaar in the European semifinals.

Prior to that historic 1-0 victory that qualified West Ham for the final against Fiorentina, Carroll was spotted drinking beer and participating in chants with West Ham supporters in Holland.

Carroll, who unexpectedly transferred from Reading to Amiens of the French second division in the summer, has now spoken out about the chants directed at him and his time at West Ham.

According to a story at the time in The Daily Mail, video from the game also showed Carroll laughing alongside West Ham supporters as they sung a song about him that made references to the forward doing narcotics.

But it seems like he wasn’t laughing within.

Carroll’s happy West Ham stay turned into a nightmare after he criticized a chant and claims he was taunted.

Carroll reveals in an exclusive interview with The Daily Mail about his new life in France that he was content and enjoyed his time at West Ham.

But he admits that as time passed, he grew bored and the abuse he endured caused him to “fall out of love with everything,” which made him resent leaving the house.

Carroll criticizes the West Ham supporters’ “drugs” cry while claiming that people were making up lies about him.

I was settled at West Ham, he claimed. I cherished the time I spent there with my wife and children. Because of my injuries and lack of luck over the previous two years, but at West Ham, I was content.

“People were fabricating tales about me, which the media picked up on. It was always creeping up on me. This occurred, this happened, and then they started performing a song about me and said, “Andy Carroll’s on drugs.” My friends and family are aware that I don’t use drugs and have never used drugs.


“I didn’t get hurt because I wanted to get hurt! I experienced a phase at West Ham where I suddenly lost interest in everything. I was feeling so down. I couldn’t leave the house without a hat, so I didn’t. Never went out for lunch, dinner, or anything else. I simply despised everyone and everything. I was being mistreated because I was hurt. I had had enough as it had all come together. I had to converse with others. If I’m being honest, I still talk to them today. In my thoughts, I experienced some crazy times. I considered giving up since I was done with everything.”

“I wore a hat wherever I went. Without a hat, I would never leave the house. I have so many hats in my home, even though I don’t like to wear them. I most likely have one for each day of the year.
