Andy Carroll Must Curb Wayward Ways


Andrew Carroll, the 19 year-old Newcastle striker, who was born across the River Tyne in Gateshead, has been given a caution by police.

Andy Carroll – not the first time he’s been in trouble

This follows an incident last weekend in Pudding Chare, a narrow street near Newcastle’s Bigg Market bars, and the 6ft 3ins player was taken from the scene by officers at 2.30am last Sunday for questioning.

A Northumbria police spokeswoman later said:

“On Sunday, September 14, police were called to the Pudding Chare at 2.26am, to a report that a woman had been assaulted.”

“Officers attended and a 19-year-old man was arrested and later accepted a police caution for assault.”

Carroll, who is currently in the England Under-19 side, was in trouble last November when he breached curfew at the England Under-19 camp and was immediately sent home, only to receive a blast from then manager Big Sam Allardyce.

Carroll’s arrest is even more bad publicity for the club, which is in crisis right now by the loss of manager Kevin Keegan, and the subsequent fans’ revolt against billionaire London owner Mike Ashley.

We’re not sure who exactly is running the club right now, since the Board don’t turn up for the games, and don’t speak to Newcastle supporters. We assume somebody is helping out Chris Hughton at the club.

It’s hardly surprising the team has already sunk into the bottom three in the league, and we just have to hope we can get a buyer for the club rather quickly, so some semblance of normalcy can return to the club.

But these actions by Carroll don’t help anybody or anything.

Comments welcome.

    This is an utter disgrace, fair enough he is a kid but assaulting a women. I think it is time for Newcastle to take a stance against these idiots at our clubs the one exception being Joey Barton purely because we’ve invested a lot of money in him and I also believe that he himself owes a huge amount to Newcastle and wants to prove that he is worthy of our support. Get Carroll out before he tarnishes this club anymore than he potentially will. I am sick of this disgrace of a club that I have supported all my life.

    The lad appears to be another prize idiot.

    Comparisions between him and Joey Barton will be inevitable.

    One difference i can see is that this is not the first incident whilst at Newcastle.

    Also seen as hes not worth 6 milllion the decision to sell him will be alot easier!

    I would be surprised if Mr Carroll is here this time next year.

    Why do we end up with players doing things like this? Shocking examples and like what has already been said, really helping us find a new buyer? I just wish we could get some players who just want to enjoy their football and have a quiet private life. Bring back players with the attitude of the team that got us promotion.

    LOL @ The Entertainers. It’s a good job we can still keep a sense of humour at times like this, isn’t it?

    One more for your list – TV images of Mike Ashley wearing a toon shirt and skulling a pint inside the ground. Another great advertisement for the club!

    The club is going down the pan! there is one thing we do need is an interim manager the problem comes WHO? there are a lot of quality managers and head coaches out there!! but under the circumstances no one wants the job! especially if it is true Ashley wants to sell!! so where do we go! we need really a head coach? someone who does what ashley and his gang want! a yes man! someone with experience and knowledge of the club, the ashleys regime and the fans! + someone who may be able to get the best out of the squad at the present moment! who?? I think maybe there is only one answer! Beardsley! think about it, he’s got his coaching badges he knows the club he knows the fans and he has stuck up for the ashley regime! he has a lot of experience as a player and a coach and just as a quick fit he could be the answer!?! there’s one thing we need to do is either sell up asap! and we need an interim coach/manager quick and know!! because at Ashley’s valuation of £480million aswell as all the help in the world to sell our great club it will take months!

    Newcastle Banter Article:

    Wise up Ashley!
    By Kelly Appleby on Sep 21, 08 02:07 PM in
    As usual, today’s Sunday newspapers, both tabloids and broadsheets, contain commentary on the shambles that is Newcastle United. Having had an unsuccessful week touting the club in Dubai for a reported £480 million, it appears Mike Ashley also lost £300 million by betting on HBOS shares. It seems that where Mike Ashley is concerned, business common sense seems to have been sacrificed for greed and the need to ‘win’ whatever situation he faces.

    I for one, feel decieved by Ashley’s statement last week. It appears that the man who came across as caring what people thought of him, and wanting the best for his family doesn’t give a damn about anything other than money. Why would a businessman as successful as him gamble such a huge amount of money on stock that appeared to be doomed, and then ask such a ridiculous amount for a football club that is, to paraphrase his words, only just breaking even? Especially a football club where it appears the staff and supporters have lost faith in the running of the club.

    Greed will ruin our club even further if Mike Ashley does not sell up soon. We have no manager, or even prosepective manager on the horizon. The predicted January transfer exodus would decimate the value of the playing staff (although I would personally chauffeur certain players to other clubs if I thought they would leave!) and cause even more unrest amongst the fans. We are not winning matches – by tonight Newcastle United may well be bottom of the Premier League. The press vultures are circling, ridiculing the club, Geordies and Ashley’s own role as a businessman. In reality, this is not a club worth more in monetary value than when Ashley took over. He needs to recognise that the problems we currently face have stemmed from decisions made by himself and boardroom staff, and sell up quick, before he does further damage to NUFC and to his own reputation.

    Hate prawn sandwitches – Beardsley…..get real; the bloke can control a ball with his feet, but not mgt material. He went down in my estimations when he started defending Ashley.

    Glad we didn`t buy CROUCH as he was useless today.
    Portsmouth just got hammered 6-0 by City.
    SWP played amazing and it`s a shame we didn`t try to get him,he is quality.
    Milner couldn`t lace his boots.

    No even a story to report here ED. A kid with a bit too much beer in him gets some stick from some lass full of Bacardi Breezer. Said kid pushes lass away.

    He’s 19. who else has a bit too much to drink when your 19?

    The fact that it’s the local press who seem to be doing anything they can to rub our noses in it at the minute just makes things even worse.

    carrol’s never been a player i rated. Kind of an ameobi with slightly bigger build.

    Can’t say he’s not been given opportunities. He’s just not grabbed them when he’s given the chance. Should have improved by MUCH more than he has if he has genuine talent.

    People say he’s just a kid and at just 19, he needs to be given more time….. but I just don’t see the potential – potential like milner, ronaldo, rooney etc had when they were 19. Even with time, I only see carrol developing into an average player at best. Yes, he’s tall and makes a good target man but then so is Crouch! Doesn’t mean jack if you don’t have the skill.

    Hope he’s not a Barton in the making!!!

    I know andy carroll and hes a good lad and TOON why would you start rumours about his girlfriend like that when he takes her everywhere and wouldnt lay a finger on her. this inccedent would of been soumething all of us would of done in the past, a drunking girl in his face spilling drink every where and he proberly would off push her out of his face, then like all girls do after even talking to a football go tothe paper and police and tell them, the paper didnt even say what he has done coz it would of been a simple push of something daft.they just love making any sort of story about newcastle at the minuite. a footballers life will be hard with all of that going on. we need to give him a break. he is a newcastle lad and will play for his team as much as we all would. getting rid of the true geordie up and coming talent would be a joke.
