    Big fan of him and I know he'll eventually come good. But can someone please tell me why he weighs in at only 65 kgs? Sources are espn soccernet and our very own website.

    This lad needs some serious weight gain and strength if he wants to be in the top strikers league.

    Comparitively: Suarez (81), Rooney (78), Aguero and Tevez (70), RVP (73), Sturridge (76), Drogba (84), Dzeko (84), Balotelli (80), Ba (84), Pa**** (73), Adebayor (73).

    Even bloddy Henderson and David Silva both at 67 are heavier than Carroll. Downing and Bellamy are at 64kgs. Gerrard is at 80 and Reina our heaviest at 85.

    Surely this is a stat that our fitness team must look at and work alongside him to bulk up? Comparing him to the top strikers in our league, he needs to be more in line with Adebayor and RVP. Similar heights and structure.

    I'm not too worried about weight. There are variables such as bone density that play a big part in a player's weight. The issue is whether the lad can hold his own in the air etc. Unfortunately, he does lose out in a fair few aerial battles. The question for me is whether he is just unable to hold his own or whether he is looking for the foul as so often we have seen.

    Surely he doesn't weigh 65kgs? That's ridiculous for a guy his size.

    I remember when he signed for us and his profile was put up on .tv, it said 64kgs. Ok Im confused now, I looked again and .tv says 76 kgs. ESPNsoccernet says 64kgs which is exactly what it was when he first joined us?

    Damn, did I start ****** thread. Hope Carroll bashers now stay away.

    I also cant see it.
    For a big guy he does get knocked off the ball too much I'm not a fitness expert but maybe our coaching team focus on making him more agile, faster etc rather than making him stronger.

    Defo wrong mate, got to be.

    I'm 6'4 and weigh in at 97 Kg's. Even if I were to lose my extra fat I would probably weigh in at 90 Kg's.

    Looking forward to the **** takes.

    I'm 6'4 and weigh 93kgs. That's why I was so shocked when the OP said 65kgs, that would be Crouch-esque.

    Mate he can't be that. That means his body would look similar to mine and believe me you wouldn't want me running around a footy pitch for 90 mins or taking me top off.

    Well, I guess my point was all lost, but it shows that Suarez is actually quite heavy for his height. No wonder he has so much strength!!

    He hits the floor a bit too easy for me, for his size anyway.

    But then again, see how easy Yakubu went down when Jones nudged him? He must be what? 18 stone at least? Drogba must be at least 20 stone and he throws himself on the floor constantly. And then there's little Messi, who must weight about 10 stone, never hits the floor even when he probably should.

    Even Messi is 67kg so 10.5 stone?

    And he's meant to be better with his feet. So if he's winning games with his head, I can't wait for him to start turning and shooting - like he did when they beat us at St James's Park during his last season at Newcastle.

    I'm 6ft and 70 kilo's, by no way would I consider myself skinny though, I know some people with the same weight and height who have totally different builds to me. I can imagine Suarez being heavier than Andy honestly, he is a robust little ******

    This is my point, I mightn't know what you look like but you may have a slimmer build than me whilst being shorter and perhaps even heavier.

    I seem to remember people on here complaining that he was too fat about a month ago.
