These are the best Andy Carroll attempted robbery jokes after the West Ham striker reportedly took his attackers on a high-speed chase back to the training ground following a confrontation with armed motorcyclists at a junction on his drive home.
The currently injured 27-year-old is said to have been pursued through the streets on his way back to Rush Green where he hoped to seek help on Wednesday.
Manager Slaven Bilić told the press earlier today:
He was brave because they asked for his watch with a gun and he put the pedal down and he didn’t want to give him the watch.
So for me it’s not about the watch, but for me that’s very brave.
He got chased for 15 or 20 minutes, it wasn’t like 10 seconds, so it was probably planned.
I know that he was very brave to do what he did.
He came back to the training ground and it stopped. But he’s good, he’s OK, he’s not in shock and he acted as a really brave man.

Andy Carroll definitely didn't get done by a speed camera and panic. Definitely not. Don't even suggest that.
