We are looking around this morning’s news, for some good news on Newcastle after our train wreck at the Reebok Stadium yesterday.
Andy Carroll – in training with England last week
Andy Carroll is looking ever so good these days, and even in yesterday’s game Andy got an opportunist goal out of nothing, and hit it home with his right foot too.
He may have been the only bright spot yesterday at the Reebok, although the youngster was obviously unhappy with his teams’ display – which was simply too bad to be acceptable.
But it seems like some big clubs have seen the huge potential in this lad, and we learned with James Milner that every player has his price at Newcastle, and if Chelsea or one of the other big clubs comes in with say a £20M offer, it could be hard for Mike Ashley to turn down.
But good news this morning in the Sunday Mirror, that Mike Ashley has laughed off suggestions that he could even be tempted to sell the local striker, who is quickly becoming a local hero on Tyneside.
A Mirror source close to the Newcastle owner (Derek LLambias?) has said that Andy is too valuable an asset to the Newcastle club to sell – at any price.
A Newcastle insider told the Sunday Mirror:
“Mike is fully aware what a valuable asset Newcastle have in Andy Carroll.”
“But he believes it is on the field where Carroll is the biggest asset to the club.”
“He knows that any club worth its salt will be looking at Carroll, but he’s not for sale at any price.”
Well that’s one bit of good news this morning – now let’s see if we can find some more good news – somewhere – anywhere.
We may not be back until tomorrow morning. 😀
