The Glass Just Slipped Out Of My Hand Judge, Honest


21-year-old Andy Carroll pleaded guilty to common assault this morning at Newcastle Crown Court, and was fined £1,000 and costs that were said to be around £1500, so that’s all about one half of  what Andy earns each day playing for the Newcastle United club.

Andy Carroll – the glass just slipped out of my hand, officer

And his Newcastle manager Chris Hughton is hoping the extremely talented striker can put the event  behind him, and that’s the very last of his altercations with the law.

This is what Chris Hughton said following the verdict, and he speaks for every Newcastle fan too:

“For the lad himself but for everybody that has supported him around here it is an episode that is very much in the past,”

“We push on from that. He is a lad that is able to put these things behind him as we saw in his performance on Saturday and it is a chapter out of the way.”

The court was told  the England Under-21 International threw his drink over Michael Cook in the Newcastle Blu Bambu nightclub last December 7th, and that the glass accidentally slipped out of Andy’s hand and hit Mr. Cook in the head,  and caused a cut on his eyebrow.

Is it just us or is that just an absurd claim  – are we really supposed to believe it?    I didn’t mean to hit him judge but my fist just mysteriously left my right arm and ended up on his chin.

Well, joking aside, it’s over now thank goodness, and we’re very pleased Andy got off and didn’t end up in jail or something like that, since we’ve had enough of  Newcastle players in jail with Joey Barton at Newcastle more than two years ago.

But as we reported this morning, Andy can take Joey Barton as an excellent example of someone who has put his life and football career back together,  after doing much worse things than Andy has even done.

We really hope the Gateshead lad does just that,  for his own sake and for the sake of the famous football club he plays for – Newcastle United.

Comments welcome.

    I’m just so glad we’ve got through this one.

    If he’s convicted for the next one and given a sentence of a few months – or even weeks – at least we’ll be able to buy someone.

    Yup, Quite believable, Mr Cook`s at fault really try to nut Andy`s glass is just a silly thing to do! Andy being at his ex`s house at 4. 30 in the morning with another girl, well I ask you what`s wrong with that? And his ex got the nerve and audacity to get upset! Seems everybody got it in for wor Ando, life`s so unfair somtimes ,he even got fined equivalent 4 hours pay, aye 4 hours mind you. Nee justice at all for the poor bugga!

    HTL, 4 hours/12 hours either way Nuttin Andy`s glass is a disgrace, didn`t even refill it for him. Utter disgrace our legal system, price of beer n all that, Andy`s the scapegoat here. THE FACTS: One of Andy`s teammates decides to attack Andy`s fists with his chin, who`s to blame, Andy!! Some idiot decides to nut Andy`s glass when he`s having a quiet drink, but blame wor Ando, finally Ando`s ex splits on him when he`s only trying to get some well deserved recreation( he was good enuf to use her bloody house after all) still she`s not happy,nee pleasing some women, SHAMEFUL that`s wot it is, leave the lad alone, poor kid!

    perch, he has been charged I believe. Up in court in January to plead his innocence for the girlfriend incident.

    No need to get so touchy. I’ll forgive you because you’re clearly not very old – or bright, for that matter 🙂

    perch, you’re about as clever as Perchinho’s good at football 😆

    You do realise that when he has to go back he will almost definitely be charged? That’s when he’ll be getting sent down
