Andy Carroll is disappointed that he has not scored in his last three games played for Newcastle.
Andy Carroll – disappointed not to score in last 3 games
Carroll got off to a great start to the season with 4 goals in his first 3 Premier League games, with a hat-trick during the 6-0 walloping of Aston Villa at St. James’ Park on 22nd August.
Andy also seems to have great faith in his team-mates, particularly in Hatem Ben Arfa, Wayne Routledge and Jonas Gutierrez, in creating many chances for the Newcastle strikers throughout the season.
Andy told the Evening Chronicle today:
“There’s always one guarantee as a striker.” “And that is there will always be chances in front of goal.”
“The chances will come – we had a few against Stoke, but didn’t put them away.” “The chances will always be there with the players we’ve got and I’ve got to be confident of that.”
“I’m disappointed I haven’t scored in the last three games, but I think I’ve been playing well.”“The chances have been there, and I think I’ll take the next one.”
“I’m always going to be the one that’s making or getting the chances.” “Getting a penalty was another one.”
Of course strikers always have to go through barren spells, and it’s really how they deal with that, that essentially determines how quickly they come back scoring the goals – which is what they are paid to do, after all.
Andy still has 4 goals in his first 6 games this season, and a goal at Manchester City would be good timing, and could contribute to a surprise point for Newcastle on Sunday – we hope.
