Andy Carroll has come out today and said something that the majority of Newcastle fans knew already – that he is totally committed to Newcastle United, his home-town club.
Andy Carroll – with trophy and baby girl
Carroll told the Evening Chronicle today:
“I think most people know that I don’t want to leave.”“It’s always been my ambition to play for Newcastle United and score goals at St James’ Park, and that’s what I’ve been able to do.”
“I’ve always said that if I get the opportunities to play I will score goals, and hopefully that continues. I’ve been at Newcastle since I was 10 and I’m totally committed.”
Well said Andy Carroll.
There is lots of talk today – coming from the journalists who cover Newcastle – that Chris Hughton will now have to sell some players, if he indeed wants to bring new players into the club this summer, as he has already stated.
But it’s still not clear to us that absolutely no funds will be made available to the Newcastle manager this summer.
You would think it would be fairly easy for the Newcastle club to clarify that news one way or the other – but we guess not.
Mike Ashley and Derek Llambias are still not communicating well enough with Newcastle fans, and whenever there’s a lack of communication it’s always accompanied with a lack of affinity.
