Sky Sports are reporting they believe a deal for Andy Carroll has been agreed between Liverpool and Newcastle United.
Andy Carroll – we have to hope this report in not true
The report says Liverpool have agreed a £35M fee to take Andy Carroll to Liverpool, and presumably a deal for £50M has also been agreed between Liverpool and Chelsea.
So Liverpool get their man – Chelsea get their man – and Newcastle lose their best player and local hero.
Oh – and who do we get in to replace Andy with 7 hours left in the window?
Doesn’t sound too good to us.
Only this morning Andy said he didn’t want to leave Newcastle, and it’s a sad state of affairs when a local lad, who’s one of the very best, cannot stay and play for his local club, Newcastle United.
If this is true – that”s all we have to say.
Shame on Newcastle United.
Are we in this game to build a top football side at Newcastle again, or are we in it to make money?
