Alan Pardew has again been talking about Andy Carroll today.
Liverpool striker Andy Carroll
But the Newcastle manager doesn’t think Andy will be fit enough for the game at Anfield today, which kicks off at noon time.
Pardew also said there wasn’t much Newcastle could do once Andy told them he wanted to move to Liverpool on January 31st.
This is what Alan Pardew said about Andy today:
“Financially, it puts us in a situation where we can look forward and re-invest that money wisely,” “For Andy, Liverpool’s a club he felt was better for him at the time. I wish him well.”
“My thoughts are, he isn’t going play so today there won’t be a reunion,” “All the noises coming out of Liverpool are the sort of noises I would give out as a manager if he wasn’t fit. I don’t think he’s fit.”
Andy had a chance to join Jackie Milburn and Alan Shearer as two local lads who become legends wearing the number 9 shirt for Newcastle. and between them scored 406 goals for the club.
It was their choice to play for the team they had supported all their lives, their home town club, and money never entered into it.
Of course Andy could end up as a Liverpool legend, but he’ll never ever become a Newcastle legend – never.
That’s some of the choices you have to make in life of course, and Andy probably doesn’t yet realize just what a massive decision he made in January to leave Newcastle.
Most fans thought he would never ever do that, and it’s still a shock even now to most Newcastle fans.
But that’s life we suppose.
Let’s hope the lads can get something out of the game today, it will not be easy.
