Andy Carroll, a cult hero at West Ham, was seen partying with fans ahead of their Europa Conference League clash with AZ. The striker had joined supporters in the Netherlands for the second leg of the semi-final tie. The Hammers were leading 2-1 on aggregate and fans were in high spirits ahead of kick-off. Carroll appeared to be enjoying the trip abroad and was happy to pose for photos with fans. He even joined in with a sing-song as he belted out “West Ham are massive, everywhere we go!” The former England international also bumped into another West Ham favourite – Tony Cottee. A huge crowd gathered to watch Carroll singing along, so it seems he remains popular among the West Ham faithful. Fans on social media also loved the scenes with one writing: “Love the fact he’s getting in amongst it! Top bloke.” Carroll played for West Ham between 2012-19 and made 142 appearances, scoring 34 goals. He now plays for Reading and scored nine goals in 30 games last season but could not prevent the Royals from being relegated from the Championship.
