Michael Owen has talked today about our 19 year-old 6’3″ striker Andy Carroll.
Cacapa fouling Andy in training 😀
Michael talked to the the Shields Gazette this morning about Andrew Carroll:
“Andy’s a good player â€“ his record in the reserves is phenomenal,” “We had a player at Liverpool when I was there called Neil Mellor.”
“If (the reserves) had won 3-0, he’d have scored a hat-trick. It’s the same with Andy â€“ he’s always scoring.”
“He is a young lad and he’ll keep improving, and one day he’ll contribute in the first team.”
In the short term, he can develop into a Premier League player.” “He certainly has the right attitude.”
Let us be the first to say it. Neil Mellor is a bad example for Michael to compare Andy to.
The reason is that Neil never made it at Liverpool, and is currently plying his trade at Preston North End, down in the Championship. Since he moved there in 2006 he’s appeared just 27 times and scored 5 goals.
And in their game today at Blackpool, Preston North End have Mellor on the bench again. We think Andy can do a lot better than that.
We know Andy will do a lot better than that.
What do you think?
