Geordie striker Andy became a DFad for the first time a couple of days ago and he seems inspired to score more goals for the side.
Andy Carroll after scoring last night
Does the baby suck her thumb already?
Andy told Newcastle United TV today:
“I was over the moon to be back in the side and then to score the goal just a day after becoming a dad.”
“But, in the end, the result wasn’t what we wanted and we weren’t at our best throughout the whole game really.”
“It was better second-half but they probably deserved the win.”
And Andy of course is delighted with his newly arrived baby daughter, as the new Dad said:
“I’m delighted, I just wish the goal for her had been a winning one.”
“We haven’t named her yet, just Baby Carroll for the time being.”
“But she’s been fine, she slept all night before the game which was good – she must have known I had a match!”
“Hopefully, though, I can get another goal for her on Saturday against Plymouth.”
Let’s make that a couple of goals for Saturday Andy – we need to improve our goal difference.
