Andy Carroll has now scored three goals in his last 3 games for Newcastle United.
Andy Carroll – adding goals to his game?
And Carroll scored a vital goal on Saturday, when a good Leon Best cross was headed in by the big Gateshead lad to rescue Newcastle from what looked like a second defeat in a row.
And his manager Chris Hughton has been working on improving Carroll’s performances on the field, his hold-up play and especially getting him to bang in more goals.
Chris said today:
“We’ve always said Andy has to add goals to his game,” “We forget he’s still young and developing. He’s still maturing into the frame he has, and the type of player he will be.”“He’s too big for me to put my arm around him!”
“I never had to check his head was in the right place.” “Throughout everything that’s gone on, we’ve seen no difference in him at all.”
That last paragraph is a reference to the trouble he’s had off the field. when he was charged with assault recently.
He needs to cut that out now – or else his career could be in jeopardy – are you listening Andy?
Andy is a handful for any defense inside that penalty area.
If he can improve his hold-up play and keep scoring those goals, then Andy Carroll could well become the real deal on Tyneside.
And if he does that he’ll get a new shirt as well – with number 9 on the back – and that’s an honor for any player at Newcastle, especially a local lad.
Go for it Andy!!
