Particularly, with Henry and FSG leading the club. This may impact whether West Ham will look to make Carroll permanent at year's end, too. Never really got clarification on whether there was a buy trigger associated with West Ham staying up. Cole scored a lovely goal in arguably the gutsiest win of the season at Upton Park. He really has become one of the poster boys for the wasted talent/potential of England's "golden generation".
At 100k salary he had nothing left in him at Liverpool.

Sterling, Suso, Shelvey, Assaidi (limited apps) and even Downing have shown a lot more then Cole all on smaller wages (and in most cases a lot smaller wages)
