This week, we ask if the fans think Carlton Cole can step up to the challenge at Norwich City on Saturday.

I am not too convinced with Carlton, can he really bring the others in to play like Carroll did? I am going for a 1-1 draw, Noble to score with a penalty – @JimboNorwood

You may also want to watch:

Cole is up to it, he is not as effective as Carroll, but he will still cause the Norwich back line problems. We will win 2-1 – @JackBowers92

We beat Villa without Carroll and most thought we’d have a decent season before he arrived so why all the doom and gloom? – @jonfoz1

Most Read

It will be a 2-2 draw. Cole will get the two goals too, whenever he has a point to prove he plays well – @ConorMaher15

We are good enough to beat Norwich, but it is sad not to see Carroll there because he made such a huge difference – @Matt_Rossleigh

West Ham will win 3-1, of course Cole is up to it, he’s proven that before – @patbulbeck13

I still reckon without Carroll we’ve got the quality to sneak it. Surely Cole will be fired up to try and keep Carroll out of the team – @KwamsMoriarty

I think it’s time for Maiga to be given a chance – @Wildyyyyy

A draw would be okay, I would hope that we have the players to be less reliant on Carlton, we all know his limitations. Respect the point – @niall_mcdonald

Carlton’s attitude and work rate have always been great. He just doesn’t score enough goals – @MrNicholasHardy

I don’t think Carlton can get any worse, it’s time for him to step aside, Andy Carroll is the main man now! Cole offers nothing, I would start with Maiga. I think we will win 2-1 – @dan_whu

Until the last couple of days we were going to have Carlton playing week in, week out for us. I think he is good enough and we should all get behind him. I want us to turn it on like we did against Fulham and get a good win – @Rich_Morbes2
