There is a blossoming bromance between Andy Carroll and Robert Snodgrass at West Ham United and these pictures prove it.
West Ham fans love Robert Snodgrass and Andy Carroll for their workrate and commitment on the pitch.
And it appears the duo love each other too.
Snodgrass has turned his West Ham career around when he looked set to leave last summer.
Shipped out on loan to Championship Aston Villa last season Snodgrass was deemed a £10 million Hammers flop.
Snodgrass born again at West Ham and Carroll playing for his future
But the appointment of Manuel Pellegrini wiped the slate clean.
The Scotland international trimmed down, got super fit and focused and has been a mainstay in the team.
Carroll has also proved crucial in both boxes since his return from six months out through injury.
The big striker’s contract is up in the summer and he is playing to earn a two-year extension.
Snodgrass will certainly be hoping Carroll sticks around if new pictures from West Ham training are anything to go by.
These brilliant pictures show the duo laughing and joking, play fighting and even Snodgrass putting Carroll’s hair in a ponytail.
It bodes well for Pellegrini that there is clearly such a good team spirit at the club.
West Ham fans will be hoping the pair’s connection off the pitch translates on it in the coming months.
With Marko Arnautovic’s future uncertain and the likes of Andriy Yarmolenko and Manuel Lanzini out for the season the onus will be on Carroll and Snodgrass to score and create the goals.
On the face of it with Snodgrass’ quality of delivery and Carroll’s aerial prowess it is surely only a matter of time until the two combine to terrorise opposition defences.
Perhaps they could recreate the ponytail moment as one of their celebrations?
