Rumor – Andy Carroll Out For The Season

There is a report out in the Daily Mirror  that  says Andy Carroll may be out of action for the rest of the season.

Andy Carroll – Liverpool player

We heard about this earlier today, but it cannot  be confirmed, but we did mention it in one of  our earlier articles today.

It seems that Newcastle never did get to the bottom of Andy’s thigh injury, and we also heard nothing from his visit to the specialist in Sweden.

He went to the northern part of Sweden a week last Friday, to meet with a world expert on thigh injuries,  before the unexpected transfer to Liverpool  happened three days later.

But Andy passed his Liverpool medical, so obviously the Liverpool medical staff, at the time,  didn’t think it much of a problem.

Carroll suffered the injury at Tottenham, at the end of December in Newcastle’s 2-0 defeat, and he has never played since, and the report suggests the  injury may need more treatment and  more time to heal than was first thought.

After the injury happened, Newcastle kept saying he could be ready for the next game, and he was even expected to be ready for the derby game against Sunderland on 16th January, which Andy was anxious to play in, but of course he never made it.

It seems the thigh hasn’t healed much at all , so it seems a bit  of a mystery right now.

Andy has always been a little injury prone, and kept getting little knocks that kept him out of games, but all last year he wasn’t  affected much by injury, when he notched 16 goals in the second half of last season, and then 11 goals in the Premier League.

This news is not official, but we have heard rumors today that he’s out for the season, and we wonder exactly what kind of  injury it is, that could  keep him out for almost four months.

There was an article in the Sun a few weeks ago, that reported he could be out for two months, and we thought that was a typical Sun made-up article  – but maybe not.

Of course it is of little concern to the Newcastle United club now, because he’s left the club for pastures anew.

We’ll update this if we get more information tonight.

Comments welcome.

    if we sign gervinho then that would show tiote that we care about him and listen to what he wants, surely that will help to keep him here for a long time and i am sure that pardew would be a better bloke to have around than the distant and slightly moody ancelotti, but then champions league could always be a draw.

    GREAT NEWS! Maybe it will turn out to be a huge profit for Newcastle united. Really don’t care about the guy anymore as he took the money path instead of love of his hometown club where he grew up.

    I’m not surprised that AC hasnt made a full recovery after seeing the specialist Hakan Alfredsson. If “cooking” tendons is his way of treating a top professional footballer 🙂

    Am glad u posted this, I was a fan of Carroll and I am still interested in how he gets on. He may not play for the team I love anymore and left under a cloud but he is still a huge English talent and I hope this injury isn’t as bad as woodgates that would be a blow to English football not just Liverpool

    i told you this news last week just after he left, and i also remember saying that his injury might be career ending because the place in his leg that it is never heals fully LFC only need to bring him back a week or two early and it could tear the leg further.
    his injury is actually worse than Owen Hargreeves in terms of career ending injurys
    at least he played 1 full international hey 😀

    If Mike Ashley knew about this, then it was very good buiseness! He would not of played for us through the rest of the season anyway so instead we got 35m to replace him with, nice! I hope that it isn’t too bad though, i still admire Carroll as a player, even if he left us for money.

    What kinda club is this, first we sell a crocked CD to Real Madrid for what was it @13 mill ?
    Now it`s a crocked CF, c`mon folks, damaged goods, we gotta give these guys there dosh back, in we ?
    Hey this could cost Dalglish his job, ye kna !
    Well Real got revenge by selling us that piece of crap, Owen, big time, now Fergie`s stuck with him.
    Probably uses him as a tipster for the horses, have`nt seen him play for a while, perhaps he will give him a game in that big cup tie comming up next.
    But c`mon folks , enough wi the damaged goods stuff, give us a bad name like !

    chuck, may be good for us. Maybe it will tell the top 4 to leave us alone as we only sell damaged goods.

    MA plays poker and he played his cards dead right with Liverpool for AC – and with the frenchies for HBA.

    LFC were obviously desparate for a Torres replacement and to get £35M for an injured CF with just 16 Premiership games is a 5 card flush.

    Some NUFC fans are complaining that Ireland is out until the end of the month – what must LFC fans think about this AC news?

    Nolan said straight after the transfer that it would be 2 months at least before AC played again. He should know – and it could be worse.

    Guys you should listen to the NUFC Arsenal commentary from Real radio if you haven’t already heard it. It’s absolutely brilliant. The commentator goes absolutely bananas when Tiote scores. Click on Newcastle v arsenal highlights;

    Yes your right, sixty million Brits spell it rumour, however over three hundred million people in the US spell it rumor, and Ed. is a US resident, who uses the simpler US spelling.
    No need to get upset about it.

    Hahahaha – hope he is crocked forever. I think they got the prognosis, then thought lets shift this Dime Bar on. A word on Besty. He has great balance and when clean through on goal I’d back him to score more times than not, he looks confident in front of goal, so what if he gets the scrappy ones, anyone remember Ruud V. Nistlerooy? He tucked away about 70 from inside the box before he hit a peach.

    This article is only irrelevant, when the debate about the Carroll sale has completely finished. Which it hasn’t by some stretch, judging by the constant comments on here.

    If the money is released I just hope the money is spread over three top class exciting young players, rather than a massive sum on one +20mil superstar. The days of superbrand marquee signings are over – more fool Liverpool, Chelsea, City.

    Players in the 6-10mil range is where we should be looking – van der vart, hernandez, odemwhingie, tiote, Dembele, etc. – the signings of this season.

    come on, forget about Andy Carroll.

    Lets move on:

    1) Sign Ewerthon and Vittek (To survive till end of the season)

    2) Look at long term replacement i.e Gervinho and Hulk
