This is an important season for Andy Carroll coming up, after he hit 19 goals last season in Newcastle’s Championship winning season.
“I know he had a fantastic season last year.” “Hopefully, he can make the step up because he looks like an exciting talent.” “Hopefully, he can show that this season.”
Carroll has a total of 3 PL goals to his name already, and will behoping to add to that significantly next season.
And we’ll see if Andy can force his way into the England squad for the friendly against Hungary coming up on August 10th, the first game after England’s disastrous World Cup.
And Peter even has some advice for the young England U21 striker, after Peter himself had been ignored by Fabio Capello, and never played a single minute in the World Cup finals as the Italian manager continued to select the hapless and impotent Emile Heskey – no wonder we didn’t do well.
“I think it is important for him not to be too disappointed if he finds it tough next year in the Premier League.
“For me, it is always difficult making the step up to the next level.” “It is important he is not disheartened if things do not go his way at first.”
“Newcastle are a massive, massive side and they have a huge stadium. I am looking forward to coming back up here with Spurs.”
“Whenever I have played Newcastle I have always enjoyed the occasion.” “When they were relegated it was disappointing for the whole league.”
We’re sure Peter isn’t the only player looking forward to playing at St. James’ Park again, in front of 52,000 screaming Geordies.
It was a terrible disaster that we were relegated a year last May, but thanks to Chris Hughton and the help of some of our senior players, we made it back – all in one piece – after only one season in the second tier of English Football.
Now to continue that upwards trend – hopefully.
