We suppose we’ll have to get used to the nonsense that surrounds Andy Carroll – after all that’s what Andy has to do every single day.
Mike Ashley – don’t think twice – it’s not alright to sell big Andy
After Mike Ashley sacked manager Chris Hughton, the cries of dismay were not just from the Newcastle area, but from all over England, and managers came out in droves to condemn the action taken by a certain ruthless Newcastle owner called Mike Ashley – bomb thrower in chief on Tyneside.
Newcastle fans didn’t like it one little bit, but when Alan Pardew came in just three days later, even though he was a very unpopular choice as the new manager, Alan said all the right things, and seems to have done all the right things too, and things have died down on Tyneside.
And the players chipped in too, with a fantastic display and all 3 points against Liverpool, in Alan’s first game in charge.
But if Mike Ashley sells Andy Carroll then all bets are off, and we’ll be back to the ridiculous scenes that greeted Kevin Keegan’s dismissal.
We keep reading all these reports about Tottenham Hotspur and now Manchester United and Real Madrid wanting to buy the big Gateshead striker in January, and Alan Pardew has already said Andy’s going nowhere.
But we have no idea what Mike thinks about selling Andy, or anything else for that matter, because he never speaks to the Newcastle fans.
We don’t think Mike Ashley is quite daft enough to sell big Andy – but there again, we’ve been wrong before about the Newcastle owner – we even thought he was going to give Chris Hughton a new contract before the end of the year.
Mike Ashley doesn’t have limitless lives at Newcastle, and he’s already used up quite a few of them, but if he sells local hero Andy Carroll – then he should be ready to sell the club and get out of Toon – very quickly.
Mike will become very unwelcome, as well as unpopular on Tyneside, if that happens.
