Newcastle Still Assessing Carroll Back Injury


It’s a little worrying that Andy Carroll felt his back in the first half at Rangers on Saturday afternoon, and was replaced at half time by Shola Ameobi as a precaution.

Andy Carroll – Newcastle still assessing his back injury

Newcastle withdrew Andy yesterday from the England U21 squad to play Uzbekistan tonight,  as a further precaution, until they can fully assess exactly what is wrong with the player.

The news today is there is not too many worries about Carroll’s fitness, and with the first game still 6 days away there is extra time for Carroll to overcome the pain he felt in his back, both during and after the game on Saturday.

Newcastle manager Chris Hughton said today:

“Andy felt his back at half-time and was still in a little bit of pain after the game,” “The FA allowed us to withdraw him because the game with Uzbekistan is on Tuesday night.”

We have to hope things will clear up quickly  for Andy this week, and of course he will already be having treatment with the Newcastle physios,  in the hope the number 9 can start the game at Old Trafford next Monday evening.

Comments welcome.

    honest all tell me will any of our strikers get into double figures this season.?

    we got 6 strikers we need to least get rid of xisco and shola and use both combined cash for a striker that can least score 15 to 20 goals.

    It’s seems a lot of clubs are withdrawing their players or getting them to retire from International duties this week… lol

    Bent has been withdrawn from the England squad, Brown & Robinson quit, so Capello would have been looking to add players from the U21 to fill spaces & Carroll would probably have been one of them, so a little incidental that he’s got a back problem too.. lol

    Not that I’m saying that our club would do anything like that but having watched the match against Rangers, I don’t remember seeing him get hurt in the 1st half either but eh, who am I to argue with the Newcastle physio team or manager 🙂

    But people said we would get hammered the 1st game of the season last time and we got a 1-1 draw with them and we were the better side for most of the game..

    sneaky suspicion that this might just be a ploy to keep him from joining up with the U21’s.

    perhaps just perhaps there is a behind the doors friendly, to check out trialists and maybe hughton wants carroll to play in it to get some more match time?

    just pure speculation.

    my thoughts on the behind the doors friendly stems from the fact that hughton said he would stage them to help campbell ease his way back into the first team. and by the count of it, campbell should be about 2 weeks left for his preseason, which seems like a decent time to give him a small run out

    Invited to the show, in its new format, “Un Jour à l’OM” on OMtv, the OM President took a look at all the names linked with OM during this transfer window.

    Hatem Ben Arfa
    “Newcastle United are interested but for the moment we have not reached an agreement, so we aren’t talking about it. We are working with the representatives of Newcastle and with Hatem Ben Arfa.”

    Yeah but the last time we played them & git the draw, we had striking options like Owne, Martins, Viduka who were all 15-20 goal a season strikers at there best, now we have Xisco, Best, Shola etc… 🙁

    yeah i heard newcastle had a bid turned down for him.

    Why would they accept around 6 million euros??? they paid more than that, and he has been a success, i think fat ashley just makes offers he knows wont be accepted, so it looks like he is trying, like what he did with k.richardson and Bastian Schweinsteiger.

    Mevlut signed for PSG on 28 June 2009 on a four year contract,[4] for a reported €9 million.[5] Having previously scored 11 goals in the league for the past two seasons for relegation-threatened Sochaux, there was a lot of speculation about his future prior to the move to PSG. Aston Villa, Fulham Newcastle United FC and Wigan reportedly showing an interest in May 2009[6], as well as other French sides Bordeaux and Lyon[7]

    lol – nah no point asking him – I’ve burned my bridges now – told everyone what a liar he is and I copied blogs he was back editing after arguments with people (including me and Big Dave) to make himself look better.

    Was really pleased after the banning folks stood up for me as I had done nowt wrong – BBM left straight after – and Toonsy is happy as he thinks its his blog now lol (until Worky falls out with him too) – theres none of the originals left!

    So I will call you Batty the Scab from now on lol.

    And as for Sir Mike – aye I am happy enough the way we are heading – and I know you are too!

    Forecast for this season BATS? I say 14th to 10th will be a decent enough year – I dont think anywhere up to 7th is out of the question IF we get on a roll like last year.

    I dont fear most teams apart from the obvious.

    Where’s your money this year? It was bang on last?
