A Carlton Cole sighting (Video)

I don’t know why but I have always liked Carlton Cole.

It’s hard to explain why. I’m don’t support Chelsea or West Ham, the two clubs he has spent most of his career with so I think it is because I like the way he plays and he has always been a bit unlucky.

He wasn’t quite good enough to make it at Chelsea and injuries have hampered his time at West Ham but there were enough flashes to prompt the believe that he may actually fulfil his potential.

Unfortunately, at 29, he is not getting any younger in footballer’s years but it was excellent to see him boss Bransilav Ivanovic to equalise for the Hammers on Saturday. There’s still some hope for yet.
