Carroll Has Fantastic Potential But Will Stay At Newcastle

Harry Redknapp has said today that he doesn’t think Spurs will do much transfer business next month.

Harry Redknapp – Carroll not available

While Harry would be keen to sign Andy Carroll from Newcastle, he doesn’t think there will  be much chance of Newcastle letting him go.

Let’s hope he’s right on that one, but it’s owner Mike Ashley we are worried about selling Andy, if a big bid comes in next month.

Harry, who does a lot of his business during the transfer windows in the gossip press,  says he will only buy players if  somebody special become available (like Andy?).

This is what Harry told Sky Sports today about big Andy:

“He’s got fantastic potential,” “He’s a top player, no doubt.”

“He’s a real handful and he’s taken the Premier League by storm the first half of the season.”

“If he was available I think there’ would be plenty of people want him,  because he’s an old-fashioned center-forward.”

“But I see Newcastle manager Alan Pardew wants to keep him and I don’t blame him, so I don’t see him moving.”

And Harry of course has been tipped to take over the England side, as there seems to be movement to appoint an England manager once Fabio Capello leaves the job in eighteen months  time.

There are not too many England managers good enough to manage England at the moment, and Harry is probably way above anybody else.

We were worried a couple of weeks ago that some reporters were suggesting Sam Allardyce  for the England job.

Harry continued about the possibility of managing England:

“I don’t think about it too much,” “I just get on with my life, that’s how I am. I’m not a person who starts thinking about what’s going to happen.”

“It’s 18 months down the line, you never know in this game, you never know in life… 18 months is a long way off.”

“I love doing what I’m doing here. But I’ve always said if an Englishman gets offered the job it would be very hard for any English person to turn it down because it’s his country.”

“At the moment I’m just concentrating on trying to keep Tottenham going and getting some results over this Christmas period.

“Of course everybody wants to manage at the top level and England would be the pinnacle for anybody. But whether it would ever happen, I wouldn’t be sure.”

We have to think if  the English FA offered the job to Harry,  there’s just no way he could or would turn it down.

    I really do hope Carroll stays. At the end of the day if the lad want’s to win silverware,play European Football, maybe in a few years time the best thing for him would be to move onto a top four club providing he does not lose form and gets better with every game. However, if we are in the top elite in the next 2-3 years then maybe we can keep Carroll at the club and push onto silverware. If we are to achieve that then keeping Carroll, Ranger, Tiote, S.Taylor, Enrique, Barton, Vuckic just to name a few is a must. If we fail to push on to bigger things then i am afraid we could lose our biggest and best players.
