Carroll And Taylor Ready To Kiss And Make Up At Newcastle

There is some positive news in the People today from Alan Oliver, that says  the two local lads Steven Taylor and Andy Carroll, will both stay at the club.

Carroll and Taylor – will kiss and make up

And not only that, but there could well be some public display of their togetherness and desire to stay at Newcastle,  and help the club in the seasons ahead.

We had expected this, but it didn’t stop the gossip press from having a field day a coupe of weeks back, and suggest one or other of the players would be sold in the summer.

Some journalists even seemed to get annoyed because Newcastle circled the wagons, and they were unable to make it into a huge event, like they’ve done in the past.

The Sunday Sun are reporting that Everton are interested in Carroll, but there’s no chance the Magpies will depart with one of their own, who has already scored 17 goals this season and has come on a ton.

We also believe Chris Hughton is proving to be a master at handling his players’ characters,  and it wouldn’t surprise us if Chris has met with both of them already, laid down the law, and told them to sort out their differences for the good of the Newcastle club.

Getting promoted and the Magpies side looking so good in the last few weeks, will have helped that coming together of the two lads – since both of them will have been  celebrating promotion as Geordie lads, just like the rest of us.

A Newcastle source told the Sunday Sun:

“Chris Hughton is absolutely delighted. Taylor and Carroll are two Geordies who want to stay with their home town team.”

“They are both potential England players of the future and losing one of them would have been a severe blow before we’ve even kicked a ball in anger back in the Premier League.”

“But it now looks like they are going to try and put the incident behind them for the good of the club.”

The local Sunday paper is also reporting that Chris Hughton and the players partied into the early hours of Tuesday morning, after they secured promotion by beating Sheffield United 2-1 at St James’ Park, on Monday night.

And of course they were given Tuesday and Wednesday off  to potentially recover from any hangovers – another wise move by Hughton. 😀

It seems that probable new permanent captain Kevin Nolan, will now keep a watchful eye on Andy, who has been in trouble far too often this season, and still has to face an assault and battery charge later this month in the Newcastle courts.

We cannot think of a better player or person to mentor Andy Carroll, and that’s yet another positive impact Kevin Nolan will have at the Newcastle club.

Kevin has been a god-send to the club this season.

Comments welcome.

    If this is genuine, then I’m over the moon, as they’re both up & coming players as you’ve said Ed, it would be a shame to lose either or both of them 🙁

    As for Everton, how many stikers do they need?? its also being reported they’re after Beckford too & they have 4 strikers as it is!! And what could they offer Carroll that we can’t next season, They’re not in Europe yet & they’re not a cash rich club, so better wages won’t be a problem either, so why do they think he would go there???

    wow when did this site come back? i thought it had closed?

    this is good news. i’ve been one of the biggest critics of carroll in the past but i am actually excited to see him in the prem. i could see him getting 12-13 goals next season. he really is one of the best headers of the ball in WORLD football.

    too much hype into this issue, when the gravity of the situation is not that serious. trying to make something out of nothing really.

    well personally i think we shud let go of taylor…
    i noe hes a fav here per i dun thnk hes dat gud a player… ive watched his game closely n his positioning has always been childish…
    wenever hes in da defence da back four luks shaky…

    he shud have played alot dis year wid colo wich cud hve improved him but unfortunately dat hasnt hapened cuz of injuries…

    if i were ch i wud stick wid colo n wili next season n sell taylor.. mayb kp hm for rb… per definitly nt cb… per if he stays dere wud always be dat danger of disunity… n we dun wan another unstable nufc in the prem

    Wouldn’t read to much into this as I think Taylor’s as good as gone while the club will hold on to Carroll, I agree with Nolan or another player of his stature acting as a minder of such, I remember Roader doing a similar job with Gazza back in the 80’s and that worked for him so why not. It’s easy saying they’ll kiss and make up but after what happened that’s not the type of thing you just let go no matter what CH or any of his backroom team have said to them the hatred and animosity will remain and thats something we don’t need.
