Andy Carroll’s Head Turned – Asks For Transfer


The news is coming in that Mike Ashley actually rejected a £35M bid from Liverpool for Andy Carroll today – but just minutes ago Sky Sports has reported that Andy has now asked for a transfer.

Andy Carroll – does the unbelievable – asks for transfer

So the 22 year-old head has been turned by an offer from Liverpool, said to pay him £80K/week in wages – and it seems that’s enough for him to leave Newcastle United – his home own club.

If this is true it will make it a little easier for Newcastle fans to accept his move, because it seems that Andy is the one who finally tilted the deal, and left Newcastle with little choice but to let the deal go through.

Of course, they could also have turned down Andy’s transfer request and increase his wages on Tyneside – but if Andy really wanted to leave – so be it.

This could even have been good politics by Mike Ashley, as he could have skillfully forced Andy to put in the transfer request to get himself off the hook with Newcastle fans.

But the stuff coming out of Sky Sports News right now is all over the map – so we’ll have to wait to see what transpires over the next five hours or so, and then try to make some sense of it all.

But every club seems to have won right now – except Newcastle  – who are left without their top striker.

Sky Sports are putting all the hype out, as usual,  and their reporters seem stupidly giddy at what’s going on.

But our view is that Andy Carroll will leave Newcastle today.

Now either Newcastle can bring in another striker before the deadline in less than six hours is an anybody’s guess, but they’ll have to bring in somebody, but their negotiating power will be zilch – and we have to think they will go for a loan deal – for somebody.

We’ll have to wait to see how Alan Pardew takes this all, because he openly admitted that Andy was Newcastle’s future, and now the lad looks like he has been sold, and finally actually wanted to leave.

So we’re not sure what Alan thinks of all of this – but he may just have to take a few big gulps and carry on, because the last thing we need now is another manager change.

And with 30 points Newcastle are not safe from the drop, and as we said a few days ago – first things first – and we have to get to 42 points as soon as we can.

But with Andy wanting to leave Newcastle, it makes it a little easier to take – because even with Andy – if he doesn’t want to be at Newcastle – so be it – go and play for Liverpool.

    dont believe it.
    this is from liverpools website:
    Liverpool FC confirmed this afternoon that Newcastle United had accepted a Club record offer for the transfer of Andy Carroll.

    The Club have been given permission by Newcastle to discuss personal terms with the player, who will now travel to Liverpool for a medical.

    so now i dont even want him to stay for requesting to leave. prick

    Wow never saw this coming off.

    Just HOPE we can sign a decent couple of players before the window shuts. Ireland deal still on apparently inspite of medical. And big rumour we’ll sign Carlton Cole, which is extremely underwhelming, but perhaps it’s a stop gap until summer.

    What else can you do with hours of the window to go?!? If he’d a gone early in Jan we could have brought in great replacements, shows what an absolute sham the transfer window is.

    This price tag is insane. I know we used to like him and all, but he’s not worth 35 mil!

    Get Crouch for about 3,5-4 mil and we have lost nothing… and gained a shit load of cash…

    someone like Crouch, Carlton Cole, Heskey – these will be the biggest “names” we could attract. how the hell do we find a 20 goal striker? Becuase there aren’t any in the world we could afford or would be interested.

    http://www.nufc.co.uk/articles/20110131/carroll-bid-accepted_2281670_2281221

    I would personally sign Connor Wickham but I’m told it’s too late to get him in this window.

    Ashley to Carroll

    “ANDY — Liverpool will give you £80k per week.
    We aren’t going to increase your contract.

    You have to put in a transfer request if you want any pay rise in the next 5 years.

    Andy caves for the cash.
    Ashley gets a way out and keep the transfer money.

    ASHLEY OUT!!!!
