Odds Of Andy Carroll Moving To Liverpool Plummet To 1/5


Newcastle United have just rejected a £30M bid from Liverpool for their local striker Andy Carroll, according to Sky Sports.

Andy Carroll – hopefully going nowhere today

Sky Sports is reporting that Newcastle have once again rejected a huge bid, this time a whopping £30M from Liverpool, for their home-grown striker, 22 year-old Andy Carroll, who now wears the famous number 9 shirt at Newcastle.

The fact that Liverpool put in an official bid for Andy, suggests they are conceding that Spanish striker Fernando Torres will leave to join Chelsea later today.

But this is also the very last day of the transfer window, and that will surely help Newcastle reject any more bids for their 6’3″ tall striker, because Andy’s departure would leave Newcastle severely depleted up front.

And we’ll not even mention that the Newcastle fans would be absolutely and completely dismayed and even disgusted with owner Mike Ashley – if he did sell their local hero.

However, on the betting front, odds on Andy Carroll joining Liverpool have just been slashed to 1/5, with odds on Torres leaving Liverpool now at 4/11.

And that doesn’t sound too good, and we don’t exactly know what’s behind that.

But of course this will be a crazy day of rumors and innuendo, so maybe it’s just an over-reaction, or maybe its been started by some report from a betting site, wanting to increase their business today.

I’m now leaving for a couple of hours to take my dog to the vet – but I do not want to see Andy Carroll sold when I get back!

Do the right thing Mike – and turn down these offers – and let’s build another great Newcastle side.

And indeed, if Mike resists these offers today he’ll get ample credit – at least form some of the Newcastle fans – because you have to remember that Stoke City bid just £6M for Andy only last summer.

If we can hang onto Andy, he’ll also be a huge draw for Newcastle at visiting grounds, and that’s what we want to see in the future, fans packing their own stadiums to watch the new Newcastle United – led by a certain Andy Carroll up front.

Just like they did when Kevin Keegan managed The Entertainers.

Howay The Lads!!

    Maybe the club needs to translate “not for sale” into every language in the world so that other teams finally get it.

    Would of taken that tbh, would be sad to him go. Would of bid 12-15mill for crouch and saved the rest to buy a decent player in Summer hopefully along with another striker, rb and lb.

    If Andy Carroll is injured, it means he cant complete a medical…so is it safe to say a transfer won’t be happening?

    So, not bringing a striker in and instead selling one (that actually produce)…?

    What’s all this? Fat Sam secretly became Director of Football at NUFC?

    OK MA has gone up a huge amount in my book.

    The majority of other teams will sell their players for 30million whoever they are.

    Spurs sold berba, rooney went for less from everton.

    Fair play Ashley!!!

    OMG this is agony.

    Will Ashley do the right thing for once?

    Big Andy doesn’t want a move so he won’t accept personal terms….. so how can he move?

    tdt,

    Medicals are so that you can find out if theres any long term injury risks to a player. Then the manager decides whether to take a punt or not if the player is injured.

    Dan Gosling springs to mind.

    He claimed the other day that Newcastle had 3 players booked into the Jesmond Dene hotel. I work for a hotel chain myself and have contacts there and believe me we didn’t. He’s attention seeking. To me if Ashley accepts he might as well go into hiding. So should Pardew because it makes his own position untenable having sworn to us that Carroll won’t be sold.

    No chance, ‘not for sale’ suddenly doesn’t become bite their hand off because of a 5mil increase, GET A GRIP GUYS! Andy won’t go anywhere, ever, in my opinion. Can you imagine him scoring against us? It would break his heart.

    I’m only anxious today about incoming players. I trust Mike Ashley wants success for the club as much as anybody.

    cwarr07 is full of shite, dunno why anyone listens to him. All he does is repeat rumours he’s heard but states them as fact, so if they come true, he can gloat.

    When he’s wrong, he’s silent for days.

    Bottom line is, even if a bid is accepted, Carroll isn’t obliged to move. Do i think he would go to liverpool? No, not really.

    Why? because i think, right now, we have a better team then they do and they’re on a downward slide in footballing terms.

    Intriguing developments at Newcastle. Manager Alan Pardew was due to hold his pre-match press conference ahead of Wednesday’s trip to Fulham at the club’s training headquarters at 1400 GMT. This has now been put back to 1530 GMT and will take place at St James’ Park. Make of that what you will.

    lads odds shortening to 1/5 is bad news, personally i would take 30mill but its no good this late in the day were not safe yet we need to bring in a striker not sell 1 keep him till summer then get the 30mill and buy fou new quality players, it just doesnt make sense to sell him on the last day.

    A medical is used to establish a players fitness and any ongoing injuries or other issues. Obviously if a player is figthing fit then there is no problem. If any problems are found then its up to the board and manager of the buying club, under the advice of their medical staff, if they wish to purchase the player.

    Recently West Ham signed Demba Ba despite him carrying an injury which will keep him out for 3 weeks. The same player failed a medical at Stoke days before, which resulted in Stoke withdrawing their interest.

    Simples!

    So Liverpool have offered Newcastle more for Carroll than Barcelona paid Valencia for David Villa this summer. World has indeed gone mad

    Please anywhere but Liverpool. This is making me feel slightly sick. Sorry but I’m annoyed we haven’t or won’t added more quality this window.

    The reason why enrique, carroll, tiote, etc. will leave – if they do – is because of a lack of ambition by the club to add more quality to what we have, and to build around them.

    Not just bring in soddin rejects and injured players on the cheap.

    thegreatoba….

    Yeh that does sound crazy. Im just really reeling in that we have a 30mill striker according to other clubs.

    David Villa seems a steal compared to 30million for carroll, but Darren Bent deal rising to 24mill…so andy caroll is worth 30mill in comparison to the bent deal but not some other deals that have gone ahead.
