Andy Carroll is unlikely to get a warm reception when he returns to St. James’ Park on Sunday.
Papiss Cisse – has one goal less than Carroll this season
Andy has been interviewed today, and he says he’s a little nervous about the game, but he doesn’t usually start these days for Liverpool, but that may change on Sunday.
This is the former Newcatsle number 9 had to say:
“I don’t usually get nervous but this might be a bit different,” “All of my family and friends will be there but they’re so big on football I’m not sure who they’ll be supporting.”
“It’s great to see Newcastle doing so well,” he said. “I support them, was brought up there and was lucky enough to have played for them. They will always mean something.”
“We need to be higher in the Premier League and I think everyone knows that,” “We know we must win more games at home. But we have done very well in the cups so far, winning the Carling Cup and reaching the semis of the FA Cup. So there has been progress.”
“If we were to win a double in the cups, it would give everyone a massive lift going into next season. As a player, the confidence winning trophies brings is huge. It gives you a lot of pride to say you were a part of Liverpool’s history.”
“I came here to win trophies and medals – but I didn’t think it would happen so quickly.”
So Andy left to win trophies – that’s the first time we’ve heard that one.
Andy has 6 goals in 35 total appearances for Liverpool this season, and he’s hardly been a rip-roaring success at Liverpool.
Those 6 goals include one against Brighton in a 6-1 win, and one against Oldham in a 5-1 win – both FA Cup games – and one in the Carling Cup in the 3-1 win at Exeter City – at St. James Park would you beleive.
So they hardly important goals for Liverpool.
With Demba Ba hitting 16 league goals this season already, and Papiss Cisse, the new Newcastle number 9, getting 5 league goals in his first 6 appearances for the club, we cannot say we’ve missed Andy Carroll one little bit.
In fact the goal scoring record of our two Senegal strikers puts Carroll to shame.
Oh, and we almost forgot to mention it – Newcastle got £35M for Andy, and the club have since spent a small portion of that money wisely, to build a top side that is 8 points ahead of Liverpool in the league table.
We need to make that 11 points by Sunday evening.
Howay the Lads!!
