Andy Carroll Leaves Newcastle For Dubai

Well it seems that the powers that be at Newcastle think a warmer climate may do Andy Carroll some good, as they’ve shipped him off to Dubai for a week.

The England striker, who turned 22 yesterday,  has a thigh injury and Alan Pardew, the Newcastle manager, has decided to give him a winter break, where he can regenerate his batteries and hopefully fully recover from his troublesome thigh injury.

This is what Alan Pardew said about Andy last night:

“I’ve sent Andy away. He’s had a tough season so I’ve told him to get some sun,”

“It’s a total rest for Andy. He’s a super player, I love him to bits and I just want to make sure he comes back refreshed.”

“The injury might be a blessing in disguise – the break might be a good thing for Andy, it might refresh his batteries.”

“If you get the opportunity to give players a break you have to,  for sure. I think this is an opportunity for Andy.”

This is a good move by Alan Pardew, who apparently is a great believer in a winter break for players, and we remember that Graeme Souness in January of 2005 had the Newcastle squad away for a week in Spain, and promised they would win the next league game – which they did.

We have to hope that Andy is fit and ready for the Sunderland game a week on Sunday, but Pardew is saying it’s only 50-50 at the moment with Andy’s thigh injury, and that doesn’t sound too promising.

We may need a certain Leon Best to bang in another three if Andy misses that game.

Comments welcome.

    Is he on a winter break or is he arranging for the Qatari Royal Family to buy the club off Ashley whiles he’s there….. lol

    Somehow, the crap-loids will turn this story around & Carroll will be signing for Cheski due to the fact that they’ve also seen Anchlotte in Dubai too…. wait for it!!!!

    So it seems Larsson may be our target, and what would make it even more satisfying to buy the lad would be the fact that the unwashed want him too!

    Rumours still persist about Bentley loan too.

    Could we take them both do you recon?

    Off topic but I’d read that the FA are to investigate a potentail betting fix on the Toon/ WHU game. Somebody put money on WHU to win!

    And….. Given Chelski’s recent run of failures, their fans have never been so pi$$ed off since they supported Fulham!!

    I am sick to death of Ashleys lies. For the last month we have heard repeated claims that Andy Carroll will not be leaving Newcastle in this transfer window, and you turn your back for five minutes and he’s been allowed to leave for Dubai. I would expect Harry Redknapp is well annoyed.
