Ok, so a quick poll before we move to a few end of season award polls.
This is a question I had on my white board ready to ask and then astvil123 sent it in also as a poll suggestion.
So what do you do with John Carew?
There are three options, we sell him this summer and make some money out of him whilst he can still command a fee, we let him run down his contract so he can leave on a free next summer or we extend his contract.
At his age and with his injury record, is renewing his contract really the way to go? I wouldn't think his wages would come cheap, he blows hot and cold - when hot very hot I'll admit but also you have to balance that out with the fact the hot days are rarely against the top teams and when he goes cold, he may as well not be on the pitch.
Some love him, some are indifferent and then there is the set who are frustrated to high heaven at a player who should terrorise the defenders he faces and be talked about in the same breath of the Didier Drogba's of this world.
So, with it being obvious we also need some new strikers in, what do you do? Keep, sell or extend?
