Alan Pardew has come out and said today he will be given the full £36M received from the Andy Carroll transfer of yesterday.
Alan Pardew – summer spending spree
Pardew has cleared up a lot of questions with the fans about how mcyhb he will be given in the summer to spend and he says owner Mike Ashley has given him permission to spend all the Carroll money in the next transfer window.
This is what Alan said:
“The one thing I said to Mike yesterday was, ‘Look, if this boy is going to go, this money has to be reinvested in the team, all of it’, and he has assured me of that,”
“For the Newcastle fan, that is the most important message I can give today, that all that money will be used.”
“Could it have been used yesterday? Late last night, we made a couple of bids, but we were getting extortionate figures thrown at us. It was ridiculous.”
For the Newcastle fan, that is the most important message I can give today, that all that money will be used.”
“Were we going to pay an overhiked price for a lesser product than Andy Carroll? No, so unfortunately as I sit here now.”
“I am weaker than I was yesterday because I had Andy Carroll maybe four or five weeks away from fitness.”
We though Andy got the go ahead yesterday to resume training from the specialist in Sweden?
But that’s good news he will not be fit for over four weeks, not to put too much emphasis on why we think that.
We like Alan Pardew becasue he is brutally honest, and we have to hope that the strikers left at the club, will be inspired to get the job done in the last 15 games of the season.
That starts tomorrow night with a game at Fulham.
