Andy Carroll Seems Completely Dedicated To Newcastle


Andy Carroll will not be in action tonight for either the full England side against Montenegro at Wembley, or the U21 side who play their second play-off game in  Romania.

Andy Carroll – only interested in what he does for Newcastle

Carroll has been in the headlines more than ever this seaosn, after his good start with 4 goals in his first 7 league games, but thankfully he seems unfazed by the whole thing.

Andy told the Evening Chronicle today:

“It’s a compliment. And at the moment that’s all it is.” “I’m not going to get distracted from my task.”   “I need to just work hard in training and do my stuff in games.”

“I don’t look at anything like that, not at the league tables too much, top scorers tables or papers – and I don’t watch too many games on TV.” “I just solely focus on the next game.” “And if I score and we are winning, then I know I’m doing my job correctly.”

“I’m not really into watching other games, I just focus completely on Newcastle United and doing the best for our fans.”  “I know a few of the lads like to read up on things, but I find out a few days before who we’re playing and concentrate on that.”

“It’s working very well for me at the minute, but I know I have to keep working hard to keep it up.

Carroll is being well coached by Newcastle manager Chris Hughton, and of course the Londoner never lets any of his players get carried away with things, and Andy is no exception, and the local lad seems completely dedicated to the famous Newcastle club.

It’s good to hear Carroll talk this way, but the very promising 21 year-old could still find himself on the bench against Wigan on Saturday,  as Shola Ameobi seems to be in top form right now.

Maybe Andy can come on in the second half and get us a couple of goals on Saturday afternoon. That would be getting the job done for Newcastle – for sure.

Comments welcome.

    I would rather see Andy start with Shola, as somebody else mentioned on a thread last night. Initially I was against it, but after a good night’s reflection, I think it might just work. If only CH was of a mind to pick 2 up front.

    I think shola was given a game in case Big Andys court hearing doesn’t go well this month.

    One selection I could see working, which could drift between 4-4-2 and 4-5-1 would be:

    4-5-1
    ************* Krul
    Perch **** Collo * Willo **** Enrique

    ************ Tiote
    Jonas ****** Barton ****** McLoven

    ************ Nolan
    ************ Carroll

    4-4-2
    ************* Krul
    Perch **** Collo * Willo **** Enrique

    Jonas **** Tiote * Nolan **** Barton

    ******** Carroll * McLoven

    OR

    4-5-1
    ************* Krul
    Perch **** Collo * Willo **** Enrique

    ************ Tiote
    Xisco ****** Barton ********* Jonas

    ************ Nolan
    ************ Carroll

    4-4-2
    ************* Krul
    Perch **** Collo * Willo **** Enrique

    Barton **** Tiote * Nolan **** Jonas

    ********** Xisco * Carroll

    The problem we all know. Is if we want Chris H too use 2 strikers then he must drop Nolan or Tiote. And Tiote has done noting to be lefted out of the sqaud but can we say that about nolan??

    Its not just restricted to them 2, it could be any of the Midfield but if you drop one of the wide men, then we are gonna become very narrow and having two up front with no crosses is not much more effective than how we are now.
