The Biggest Transfer Blunder Newcastle Will Ever Make


It may not be true, but with news that Andy is on his way to Liverpool via helicopter to have a medical, agree terms and then presumably sign for them – this doesn’t look good.

Mike Ashley – another huge blunder – he just doesn’t get it

And no wonder poor Alan Pardew has scrapped his press conference today, because he’s had the rug pulled from under his feet by Mike Ashley, and will be searching desperately for another striker to bring in today – and probably on loan.

And they will need to do something to quell the apparent fury of born and bred Geordie fans everywhere, who may  witness today the Newcastle owner Mike Ashley selling one of their very own.

Andy was born and bred on the Tyne, and he has  come through the Newcastle Academy to be England’s most exciting prospect – and we sell him for the greenback.

Doesn’t Mike Ashley know the Newcastle fans are very proud of  Andy Carroll?

Now when he’s knocking them in for England we can only have that painful and empty feeling  – that he could have still been at Newcastle United – like Alan Shearer and Jackie Milburn before him.

Maybe Newcastle can use £1Mfo the Carroll fee  to bring in Seb Larsson from Birmingham, by offering Birmingham say £1.5M, and offering Seb new terms so he will take the deal – today.

Every Newcastle fan is entitled to their own opinion on this deal – of course they are – and some will think it is worth the £35M – I understand that – and everybody’s opinion has  to be respected.

But I will give you my own view on this – from the heart.

I have supported Newcastle United since I was a 4 year old kid back in 1949 – and this to me will be a soul destroying transfer – if it goes through.

It will rip the very guts out of Newcastle’s great and proud history, because that will mean nothing when money is King.

We can kiss goodbye to having any local-born world class  players ever playing for Newcastle again under owner Mike Ashley – because it looks like Mike will sell them – when the transfer fee gets high enough.

Shame on you Mike Ashley – and it’s a shameful day for Newcastle United if this deal goes through.

    C’mon Ed, you mean you don’t trust Pardew & Ashley.

    They did give their word this transfer wouldn’t happen.

    Fat C*NT Ashley.

    Who have we got to replace Andy?

    Best, Strolla & Ranger?

    Are you kidding me?

    I am absolutely livid.

    It’s obvious we can’t turn down a hilarious over valuation of Carroll but why haven’t they thought about a replacement.

    I am at Fulham on Wednesday so lets what happens….

    I’m actually very upset about this and it will take a very long time to get over this

    I am so glad that he did not put in a transfare request that would have been the kick in the balls

    I just hope he is another Robbie Kean

    I know people will criticise this, but you have to question how much AC love s the toon if he leaves.

    All the bull about how much wearing the no.9 means to him and he goes to liverpool.

    Myabe if it was a top top top side then maybe could accept it more. Hes supposedly joining a team another striker is leaving because of the state it is in!

    Gutted. Please leave our club Mike Ashley, you don’t deserve to own such a prestigious club and play with the emotions of our passionate fans.

    Enough is enough, first the sale of Milner, then Given, the way he treated Keegan and Shearer, then Relegation, the way he treated Hughton now this.

    Hopefully the Helicopyer will crash on route to pick Carroll up, preferably into one of Mike Ashleys 8 chins…

    This is bollicks if they sell him, the can fuck right off, the backlash will be lethal after this if it goes thru and the wound will take a long, long time to heal.

    We have all been lied to. Carroll was never injured that badly. Pardew was in this as well. No wonder Pardew got hired as he was willing to be Ashley’s puppet. Carroll didnt play through january, because Ashley didn’t want him any further injury that could scupper any potential deal because of medical. This is the truth.

    This has,nt all been confirmed yet lads!

    If this is true though it is indeed a black day in Newcastles history, but realistically not really surprising. The only thing that would go towards consoling me would be if they have swapped him for Torres! Otherwise i,me totally gutted!

    35 milloin is quite much lads. You can pay almost the whole squads 1 year wages with that amount of money. Andy is good, but this amount of money from a lad who is still in many ways raw talent and playing his first full season in premiership, is more then enough.

    Shut up Ed.

    35mil for somebody with half a season’s experience in the PL and 1 England cap is fantastic business. We’ve totally robbed them.

    However, we need a replacement. We should have sold him on Jan 1 so we could buy somebody.

    Honestly lads, why would he be interested? The more I think about it the more I think it’s speculation.

    1. He’s a Geordie, born on the banks of the Tyne like a lot of us here.

    2. He played for Gateshead FC and moved on to Newcastle United – a dream of any Newcastle supporter.
    3. After one season of first team football, he gained the right for the most coveted shirt in football – the number 9.

    3a. While Liverpool also has a strong connection with the number 9, they don’t seem to feel the same way about it as we do – the selection of that number is everything.
    3b. The Newcastle number 9 has been worn by the likes of Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand, Jackie Milburn etc., I don’t need to list them all for obvious reasons, but for a Newcastle supporting Geordie, that shirt is the be all and end all of playing for this club. I would wear it in the f**king conference for christ sakes!

    Nothing is confirmed but nothing has been denied. Let’s keep the faith lads. If we get upwards of £30m then I suppose we’ve put ourselves in good stead for the summer window.

    Hope he isn’t leaving, but such is life.

    That Fat C***t is the main reason why our club is so unpredictable.

    In the transfer window, my worry was losing Barton and Enrique, not Carroll?

    So, who at this late stage will replace Andy? Without him, Strolla, Best and Ranger will continue to struggle to hit barn doors.

    No doubt, Ashley will end up signing Marlon Harewood or some other f****wit.

    Get real guys. Every player has his price.

    35m is an awful lot of money, in the summer NUFC can bring in 5 new 1st team players with this money. Any management would accept this kind of offer for a player like Carroll, let’s be honest with ourself, he’s not Cronaldo or Messi.

    Thanks for a couple of nice seasons to Andy, life goes on and we’ll find some decent players with this funds.

    if the deal is completed i will stop watching football.. plain and simple and am dead serious.. if this doesnt empty out st james then i will not feel bad if i stop supporting the club this needs to be handled properly by the fans and honestly hurt the fat kunt in his pocket no more home games for the rest of the season and no more for the remainder of ashleys tenure in charge simple..
