Andy Carroll Likely To Miss Magpies Game

Newcastle United will visit Andy Carroll and Liverpool next Sunday afternoon, but we expect Andy Carroll to miss that game due to his knee injury.

Andy Carroll – now the Liverpool number 9

Lots of Newcastle fans are still upset with Andy, because it looks like he told Alan Pardew he wanted to leave Newcastle and join The Reds, and he’s a local lad, so that’s very hard to take for die-hard Newcastle fans.

But of course Carroll had every right to leave and join Liverpool, and when he’s played for them he’s looked very good, and recently scored his first goal for the England side.

But it may be that Andy is a little injury prone, having taken a good 10 weeks to get over his thigh problem, which was said to be only slight when he first got it at Tottenham at the end of December.

And the big lad missed Liverpool’s 5-0 walloping of  a woeful Birmingham side on Saturday, with a jarred knee problem he picked up the previous weekend, and Carroll is officially rated “doubtful” by his club for the game against the Magpies.

It turns out that Kevin Nolan was a little fatigued last week in training, and even in the game on Saturday, so hopefully he can recover this week, and be ready to face his home town club next Sunday afternoon.

Nolan was replaced by forgotten man James Perch in the last few minutes of the 1-1 draw at Bloomfield Road.

But Kevin expects to be fit and ready to go next Sunday, as he sadi today:

“I just felt a bit of a niggle,” “It was only a precaution and to get somebody on who could run a bit faster than me really.”

“It’s been horrible to be honest to miss two games.” “But it is just part and parcel of it all.”

“I have been there for the lads in terms of support, but you feel it when you have two weeks out.”

It’s uncertain if Andy Carroll will make it on Sunday, but of course the 6’4″ striker stayed at Kevin’s home last October, as one condition of a bail hearing he had,  after being accused of assaulting his girlfriend.

Andy’s new car was torched at that time, as it stood in Kevin’s driveway, and only recently a 32 year old local man was accused of setting Carroll’s car ablaze.

Andy missed out on Saturday and he may miss the Magpies clash, as his pal Kevin Nolan continued:

“The big man missed out because of an injury.” “He missed out and he doesn’t know how long he will be out.”“Hopefully he’ll be back so I can kick him.”

“There will be a lot of friends and family there in both ends for him.” “We’re looking forward to it.”  “We’ve been brilliant away from home this season and we’re full of confidence.”

“They had a fantastic result and so they’re full of confidence too.”  “It will make for an entertaining game.” “I don’t know if I want him to play or not.”

“I do so I can kick him, but I don’t want to him to play because of the threat he can pose.”  “He’s clicking into gear. You will see the best of him next year I think. But he’ll be desperate to play against us.”

Andy is not a quick healer and we really don’t expect him to be risked against Newcastle, but of course he will be still be at the game in the stands on Sunday afternoon.

Come to think of it – it would be fantastic if Newcastle can beat Andy’s new team.

That’ll show him to leave his home town club. 😀

    I jarred my knee like AC but abit worse and ended up with the same injury as DG I done my ACL in and tore some cartilage I choose not to go through surgery and my knee still plays up 2 years later, I wouldn’t usually wish this on anyone but I hope his knee is F**ked. I lost all respect for AC as soon as he left.

    I like Nolan but i think he will be more of a bit part player next season, we carry him at times. If he was a yard quicker he would of had 30-40 England caps.

    I want to see if he gets a similar reception as Michael Owen when Carroll plays against Newcastle at Sports direct @ St James Park. He’ll be trembling in his boots.

    Carrolls still a geordie .. fair enough he took the money and ran but he doesn’t deserve the same abuse as owen who was out for the money and nothing else..
    Good stuff ed 4-4 still gives me goosebumps .. Barton was immense .. we need to get him signed up ASAP..

    I am still hurting at Andy leaving and I do not care if I am a lone voice but I maintain he was manhandled out of the club by cunning businessmen.

    He is one of us and it hurts like hell seeing him in that bloody red shirt. How anyone can compare him with owen defeats me.

    I wish him well in his future but hope if he does play next week that he does not score against us.

    He can get an own goal like. 😀 😀

    Andy Carroll left his home club for a new challenge, fair enough. But the fact he went to Liverpool, who are up there with Sunderland in my opinion, is taking the pee. Then he gets the number 9 shirt! its like he is trying to rub it in our faces. Tbh he is getting a bit injury prone, and we have all seen the wasted talents i.e.. dyer, Owen, etc.. through injury’s. Maybe it was good the ugly avatar look alike is gone.

    The fact that he WAS a geordie and left his home team which he supported for years for a scummy dirty scoucer teams proves that he is even worse than Owen; leaving back everything he loved for more money. You can’t get any more fickle and greedy than Carroll.

    Aye he was greedy, on the positive 35m we can buy some bloody good players for that.

    I think we shouldn’t boo him just stay quiet leave him thinking over whether he made the right choice and itll be like when your parents bollocked you as a kid was never as bad as those few words “im disappointed in you” which cut a thousand times deeper

    He’s the next Dean Ashton, he’ll be retired by the time he’s 25.

    My opinion is, we’ll spend £40-45m, not including the sale of Enrique. MA needs to be seen injecting a small cash-pot on top of the £35m or the knockers will continue. I hope we begin a new chapter in the summer.

    Chelsea wont be flogging Sturridge, loan maybe.

    Nils Petersen ST
    Marcell Jansen LM/LB/LW if Enrique goes. 6?3 and rapid + strong
    Gameiero ST
    Gervinio RW
    Wolfswinkel ST
    J Lens Winger

    And another few of Graham Carrs Tiote esq gems would be tip top
