Wearing Newcastle Number 9 Is Best Feeling In The World

It’s not surprising that local lad Andy Carroll is devastated that he will miss the derby game tomorrow at Sunderland, because of his troublesome thigh injury.

Andy Carroll – loves wearing number 9 Newcastle shirt

Andy, who turned 22 a week last Thursday, spoke to the official Newcastle web site today:

“The win against Sunderland at St. James’ Park was one of the highlights of my career, a truly magical afternoon, which makes missing Sunday’s game all the more disappointing.”

“These are the sort of games everyone wants to be involved in – the best derby in the country as far as I’m concerned – but I’m sure the lads who do play will do themselves, the club, and the supporters proud.”

“From my point of view, injuries are unfortunately part and parcel of a footballer’s life and you just have to get your head down, get fit, and look forward to playing again.”

“And for me, pulling on that black and white number nine shirt and scoring goals for Newcastle United is the best feeling in the world.”

It’s clear to anybody who will listen to Andy Carroll,  that he is living his dream and playing for Newcatsle United wearing that very famous number 9 shirt.

But it will not stop the gossip press from insisting he is moving to some big club in January – take your choice – Tottenham, Man United, Chelsea ……

Andy is going absolutely nowhere – as we all know – and he has the chance to be one of the all time greats at Newcastle, and not surprisingly that possibility is spurring him on to greater  things on Tyneside.

And we think the youngster has also realized that he has to stop all the nonsense off the field of play, because that reflects badly on one of the most famous football shirts in football.

    He already plays for a big club Ed.
    We are just as big if not bigger than the chelsea’s and spurs of the league, the only difference is they have more financial clout than us. I wouldn’t consider man city to be a bigger club than us, they just have a rich owner that has to much money to spend. That does not make them a ‘big club’… They just got lucky their rich owner can afford to pay good players stupid money to play for them, because those same players wouldn’t go there if they weren’t tempted with huge wages.

    Talk of him leaving baffles me, like he says himself that it’s a dream to wear the number 9 shirt and score for the Toon. Shearer was the same and he knocked back Man U when they wanted him.

    Pardew has said on many occasions that Andy is staying, Andy himself is saying he’s living the dream so it’s only the press and noobs on twitter etc. trying to unsettle the lad/the team with endless talk of him leaving.

    One thing for sure Ashley and Pardew will never live it down if they do sell him.

    Go on Andy, get fit soon and do us all proud.

    Getting bored of Spurs fans claiming that they have a chance of signing Carroll. The way I see it, if AC is going to leave us then he’ll go to a Man Utd or Chelsea NOT to Spurs who will implode when Harry walks out on them for the England job.

    Got it spot on there supershearer, arrys the reason spurs are where they are hes done an amazing job at spurs, jst as he did at portsmouth (obviously at portsmouth it fell apart after he left, but that was ot his fault) I definately think hes the only man for england after capello, and if england came calling im pretty sure he’d jump at the chance

    Andy is priceless lads…you cant put a pricetag on what it means to geordies to have a young geordie lad taking the prem league by storm wearing the #9 for the black and white. He has brought so much pride to so many geordies. He wont leave because just like every lad on here, if we had his skills and could score goals for nufc we would be in heavan
