Andy Carroll Out For Another Three Weeks


We had mentioned yesterday that we were a littler dubious of  the news when Alan Pardew announced yesterday that Andy Carroll would not make the game against Tottenham on Saturday.

Andy Carroll – out for another three weeks

Andy had even hoped  to be fit to face Sunderland last Sunday, so to announce on Wednesday that he wouldn’t  make a game on Saturday was certainly not good news.

And it got even worse today when Alan Pardew, speaking on Sky Sports News, said he didn’t think Andy would be ready for the game a week next Wednesday, when Newcastle travel to Fulham.

It seems Andy will be out another three weeks with the troublesome thigh injury, which is not healing nearly as quickly as the Newcastle medics had thought it would.

Andy has already missed the last four games, and he will now miss the next two games for certain – and  he will be  a big doubt for the game against  Arsenal at St. James’ Park on February 5th.

And that’s a pity because the Arsenal soft center in defense, would be perfect for an Andy Carroll aerial assault.

Alan Pardew said today:

“He is probably doubtful for our next game too,””It’s an injury which is not healing very well. “

“It’s nothing new and is the same problem, but it is a kicking muscle so you can’t take a chance on it.”

“We think it’s going to be around two or three weeks from where he is now.”

Spurs have been continually linked with Andy Carroll in this transfer window, as he seems England’s most exiting young player at the moment.

And Alan Pardew took the opportunity to say Andy wasn’t for sale – again – for the 245th time – just in case anybody was listening this time:

“Andy is not for sale, again,”

“Every top club would be interested in Andy Carroll.” “He is a great player, a top striker and has shown his qualities in the first half of the season.”

“It is important that when he comes back from injury that  he gets back to that same level.”   “But he is not going to Spurs or anywhere else.”

We expect to be reporting that some other big club will again be bidding for Andy – but we’ll need to wait until Sunday before that happens.

And by that time we hope to have taken all 3 points off Tottenham.

    Another interview by Pardew geez i swear he is using his chance in the EPL to get in the public’s eyes every day i see 1 or 2 interview from Pardew, most slagging off Ranger! Why doesnt he stop talking to the papers and concentrate on the team and bringing in the quality we need to progress as a club. we have let go of one winger (leaves us with just 1 reconized winger in Jonas) So if we dont buy a winger which we need then we are very short upfront, not in terms of people but quality, Best/Loven/Ameobi just cannot hack it, they play well every few games, never consistant apart from Ameobi who is always consistantly lazy. so start looking at good players before Jans gone!

    Ed – Looks like Routledge move to QPR has hit rocks, look at Fitz Hall (remember him) Twitter page – https://twitter.com/#!/aslfitzhall

    He says he spoke to Wayne and he doesnt know whats happening now.

    You reckon this is because of Smiths injury, along with Goslings setback? Midfielders are dropping, and doesnt look like any are coming in anytime soon.

    nolan will start pardew said that earlier toda, said he didnt think he could go 90 but he will start thank God, look lads not the end of the world, luckily tayls should be back which would leave our back line in tact, even if he’s not willo is great too, so defensively we are solid enough to keep a clean sheet, if we nick a goal against spurs early who knows, andy isnt our team, he is a great player but we have prooved we can win without him…

    good on the people who were slagging smith and were happy that he got injured..damn i wouldn’t want any player to get injured let alone our very own player…smithy was the captain last season and i have no doubt in my mind that we wouldn’t have been here without his grit & determination..agreed that his best days are past him but get off his back for christ sake and support the lad and stop crying about his 60k salary and calculate how much promotion was worth and what role did Alan smith played…rant over..Get Well Soon Alan 🙂

    Nothing official but was on Sky Sports News that ‘they understand’ a deal had been done. Thats why I am suspicious we could now keep him. Much like what happened to Milner all those years ago, drove to Villa was it then had to come back???

    toonkistan,

    spot on mate, just had a row with charlietoon on the other story cuz of the same thing. He calls himself a toon fan but he is happy one of our own went down for the season with aninjury. your spot on we wouldnt be here without smitty last year. He’s not the best player ever but he leaves it all on the pitch for the toon and he has brought the locker room together and leads by example with true grit and heart on the pitch…spot on mate spot on

    Relax lads. We have other goal scorers. Nolan, Barton, Best, Shola even Colo. With that we’ll still finish above the scum who have just lost their best. All I want is to finish above the relegation and above the scum maybe us on 17 and them somewhere below that.

    poor Routledge.

    Put him in from the get go against spurs and see him put in a man of the match performance (i hope). I really like him, and he wants to be here, not to mention he seems happy with his bit-part role. Unless we do get Taarabt from this, this is a lose-lose

    Oh lordy lordy that batty’s about with his bunch of loser inbred friends by the sounds of it.
    just because you have lost your “BEST” striker you think that carroll is going to leave us (NOT A CHANCE MATE, NOT A CHANCE) now go back to your little hole

    Just a small conspiracy theory, maybe Pardew isn’t getting the support that he wants from Ashley and all these players being injured is Pardews way of sayin I need more players.

    I know how my mind works.

    Really big loss with Andy Carroll out. We really need him to cum bak soon. But, I’m sure Shola or Best will fill in his boots.

    Also rumours all around that we have agreed a loan fee and personal terms agreed with Stephen Ireland. Just medical to go, tomorrow……………

    Looking forward to the Bale vs Enrique battle this wkd…

    still have my fingers crossed for a new signing but we keep losing out to clubs such as Blackburn on players, not sure about Ireland but he was great at Man shiteh few years back, might be good just in case we lose Barton.
