Alan Pardew – Andy Carroll Is Going Nowhere – Good


When we saw the report about Alan Pardew wanting to bring in 28 year-old striker Rickie Lambert form Southampton for about a £1M, we were concerned that may mean the club may sell Andy Carroll.

Andy Carroll – going nowhere

But at least some good news has come out today from Alan, as he said he will not be selling Andy Carroll.

That’s not only got to be good news for Newcastle fans, but good news for Andy too, because if the club had wanted to cash in on the boy, there’s not much Andy could have done about it.

This is what Alan said today:

“Andy Carroll was at the top of my list of questions because he needs to stay.”

“This club has been crying out for another number nine and he looks like he’s fitting the bill.”

“So I made it very clear that he needs to stay.”

It looks with that statement that Alan thinks he’s in charge of things,  we certainly hope so, but we’ll see how things go for the next couple of weeks.

Apparently one of the strengths of Alan Pardew is his ability to spot a good player, and that will be vital through the end of this season, as we hopefully continue to try to strengthen the squad.

And maybe Alan will have a mini clear out of some players that have just not made the grade at Newcastle in January, and if not then – then certainly in the summer.

Xisco would be first on that list, with Leon Best probably second, and if they can be moved out as early as January, that may happen.

Another name that comes up is James Perch, although we were still hoping that James could improve in the Premier League, but he may not get too many chances to do that now, having lost his place to the improving Danny Simpson.

It’s going to be interesting to hear Alan’s take on the squad after he’s spent a couple of days with the players – but our squad must ensure the team spirit at the club remains very strong – and we look to Kevin Nolan, among others, to ensure that.

Comments welcome.

    Aye right, just like they told us money would be avalible to spend…
    He’s not in control, Ashley WILL sell carroll. Cost nothing to buy, huge profit to be made. Welcome Pardew, Ha and you think you can control things. First of many lies to come

    I hate ashley and it makes me feel totally sick thinking that paedew (notice the mistake) is our manager, what those poor players think of it lord knows, but it’s not paedews fault (whoops thats twice) that he’s come to this “Town” under these Circumstances, this is do or die for ashley because if pardew doesn’t do well the fans will be on his back instantly if he does well then he will get the time, it’s also good to read that the contract has a clause that allows us to get rid fairly cheaply if needed (at this moment in time i’ll give the man until end of Jan) it did make me laugh when he said he a successful premiership manager and has alot of experiance in the PL (not quite how his CV reads lol!!)
    but we have no choice now he’s here and the proof of the pudding will start on saturday with a win against liverpool hopefully if not the end of Jan will loom ever closer

    Of course he has to say this and keep his word. It’s part of the pipe of peace process. It’s like having an argument with your missus. Let things calm down and you may be making up that night. Sell her shoes and your dead.

    Solaidback agreed Ameobi hasn’t done anything all the years he’s played for Newcastle but he’s not the worst, if he gets rid of Perch and Best that’ll be good as long as he replaces Best with the likes of Lambert and Perch with a decent full-back, don’t care who it is as long as they are better than Perch, what was the point in signing him anyway. Who do you want him to sign in the window?

    Yes. Please do sell Perch. That textbook header past Krul against Stoke City put him on my black list.

    olitremblay, Perch (and a few others) should go. But that header was a natural reaction for any defender. He just wrongly connected.

    Howay man – You have just put 4 of our srtikers on the transfer list haha!… calm down a bit.

    I would probably either keep lovenkrands or Ameobi as a squad player… I’d bring in Ricky Van Wolfswinkel AND Seydou Dombia! … Imagine that strike force if we strengthen our defence up little bit…

    Kranjar……………….Tiote……………………Benny

    …….Dombia……..Carroll……..Wolfswinkel………

    Woahhhhh

    @GeordieGerman: yeah, I know. I probably would have scored that same OG. But you see, that game was the first (and so far only) Toon game I ever attended, so Perch left quite a bitter taste in my mouth. ;o)

    solaidback – already you’ve moved your vitriol towards ameobi.. didn’t take long. I swear some supporters are just willing him to fail.

    boater – what you mean willing him to fail? ameobi has failed and failed miserably for us every time hes played, yes he scores the odd goal every so often not very mind, but his all round game is sh*te and is simply not good enough for newcastle and the premier league, his touch is pathetic for a professional think he would of learned his like 28 or something

    I have 3 points to mention, I hope to agree.

    1: beyond who the dt, we must keep the team’s base, I speak not to sell these players: simpson (s) Taylor, Enrique, Jonas, nolan, Tiote, barton and carroll.

    2: (Like you I too am upset with the arrival of Pardew, though I must admit not met him either), perhaps the only thing certain is that transfer window opens in January, three or maybe four, beyond this, Pardew must maintain the above.

    3: They should show, courage, struggle, among other things. for my part I wish him well, I think all the team seguiedores should support the team and (hopefully get the win over Liverpool), as they say in Mexico, an ill wind that blows no good

    is the first occasion on which Alan Pardew goes to Newcastle, I think that instead of criticizing, there must be some way that Newcastle fans (you who live in England) they advise, at least advise through this blog, positions and players who would like to sign Pardew, also said players should stay in the club. it is difficult to do, that’s my opinion.

    hey lads, everyone is missing the point here, all of a sudden its a fire sale.
    It snot who we get rid of, it is who we need to bring in. Our Midfield has been constantly over run the moment we lose an established player to injury/suspension/stupidity (yes you Barton again). I would not trust Guthrie to kick my front door in if I lost my keys, Perch could not tackle a large dinner, Shola has potential (to be the biggest waste of misplaced faith), and Xisco should have been deported through swindling the immigration laws (how on earth did he get a ‘WORK’ permit, the lazy tw*t? Injury to Simpson could be catastrophic because Ryan Taylor at times looks like he has wandered into his own nightmare, as he is never ever gonna be a full back.
    Now flip the coin and bring in half decent players (even to bolster our paper thin squad) and we will not be the soft touches that Bolton, WBA, Stoke, Wigan, Blackpool etc tec have encountered. I have no problem with bringing in 3rd division players. They have got to be better than any of the above, to make us even look at signing them.
    Lets give the team our FULL support, get vocal, and get points on board. If we dont improve, Mr Pardew will get the message, just as Sam ‘Anti-Football’ Allardyce did.
