Carroll Looked Me In The Eye And Said He Wanted To Leave


In his press conference today, for the game on Sunday with Liverpool, Alan Pardew cleared up at least some of the mystery of Andy Carroll leaving Newcastle.

Alan Pardew – Carroll wanted to leave Newcastle

He was asked during the conference that there was still some question as to if Carroll wanted to leave Newcastle, and Alan Pardew answered that immediately by saying:

“I can clear at least some of that up – he looked me in the eye and said he wanted to leave – and go to Liverpool and he went.”

That kind of differs from what Kenny Dalglish said today, as he tried to put a positive twist on the move for Andy, and said Carroll had no control over the transfer.

But Alan Pardew the day after Carroll left, when he was again left to answer all the questions from the press all on his lonesome,  said Andy had wanted to leave, and he has again reiterated that today.

And that’s why Alan Pardew asked the Gateshead lad to put in a formal transfer request at the time – because he had asked to leave Newcastle.

Alan also said today that  we had no chance of making the Champions League, because 5 points was just too much to make up on a team as good as Tottenham, and it would really need to be 6 points because  of our poor goal difference.

And he was rather complimentary to Kenny Dalglish on his transfers, and said that some players take longer than others  to settle in, and he thought that Liverpool had signed some excellent players, and they would  come through for Liverpool.

This is some of what Alan said about Newcastle’s new players:

“We’ve been blessed with the fact that our new players gelled very quickly, and settled in very quickly.”

“Demba Ba and Cabaye,  and Cisse has come in and got 5 goals, and sometimes it can go like,  that and you cannot always pre-plan things.”

“We’ve got a good side, we’ve proven that all year, and we’ve been in the top six all year, and as high as third.”

“We’ll just take that form into the next game and just worry about ourselves and we’ll be in really good shape.”

Good words form Alan, and he was complimentary to Andy Carroll,  and said he was still very young and had a great football career ahead of him.

Alan said the staff  would welcome Andy and Jose to the club, because they were good friends, but that Newcastle wanted to win this game too.

You could see by Alan’s comments what a motivational manager he must be – if I was Andy Carroll listening to what Alan said about him today, I’d be feeling pretty good.

Hopefully Andy will not feel so good as to actually score on Sunday, but he’s  said he will not celebrate if he does score.

Our advice to young Mr. Carroll – keep it simple and don’t score. 😀

Comments welcome.

    It’s one thing that he said it, but the manner he said it in is what convinced me that he’s actually telling the truth.
    Carroll wanted to go to Liverpool, and he went.

    Please please please stop talking about him. Everything i’ve read today has been about him and it’s doing my head in. This game is far more important than one player and yet this is all it comes down to.

    Ed, don’t write another article about him please!

    Looking forward to the game but not feeling optimistic in all honesty. I still think we’ll finish about them but if the dj beater has his game on he’ll do us over.

    mmmm. He might not plan on celebrating if he scores, but once the fans boos have kicked in this might be more difficult for him. I’d love for Newcastle to win 5-1, and for Caroll to get the consolation goal. Having said that Newcastle won’t score more than three, so hopefully nobody will score for Liverpool.

    okay thank you Mr pardew,

    it is a misconception that if you speak positively regardless of what is going on you are a good blogger and if not you are a bad blogger.

    i am off to watch dortmund vs stutgart

    It is a popular conception that if you speak negatively about things when things are going well you are a neggar.

    I don’t think anyone is saying that Indian but face facts mate / the season has been a good one so far despite some iffy performances, constant complaints and bitching after such a good season is just… Annoying, actually.

    Doesn’t make you a bad blogger. Haha. Bless

    Actually just read the last post and there does seem to be a bit of ganging up on here. Optmisim valley boys need to calm down and stop telling people to get off the blog.

    Keyboard warriorism at it’s best.

    We’re all excited about the progress and negativity is annoying but it’s a public blog

    ill forgive beattie if he leaves his anti parade claptrap at the door and his ego with it. that’s the last ill speak of that.
    Indian i might not agree with your thoughts but you are a loyal blogger and you should get less upset about people disagreeing with your sentiments and you should also try to look at the positives after wins more than negatives. we’re 6th now and can qualify for Europe! just

    I’m going to come clean. I picked Friday at 5 as it was supposed to be a half day at work. I got called into work later and it ruined everything. I’m back now as I’ve finished but the apocalypse has now begun.

    Muwhahahahahhhahah

    Ruddy your nemisis has returneth, Ibiza your time has come, cheik I am here to save you.

    Beattie’s black list is going to be long!

    Anyway it’s good to be back. Had a meltdown, swore i’d never come back and couldn’t stay away from it. I swear there is no ego I just wanted to go wwf style (as somebody mentioned)z

    I will also lay claim to the following aliases ‘He Will Rise Again’ and ‘Alan_Pard_Who’

    As for Pardew 1, billy, bob, eric, and/or planb even I’m not that much of a cock.

    Let tHe debates begin!

    Myself and Indian have a bit of history and it is not my remit for telling anyone not to post on the blog as I am of the same belief as yours that this is a public forum to discuss all things NUFC. Indian does not do that however. His negativity is not only annoying it is misplaced and today saw Beattie insult HOVIS and then Indian insult myself.

    I do not take insults from anyone who just wish to insult me. If someone wishes to disagree with anything I have said then that is fine, I welcome a good healthy debate. But Indian does not do that. If you were aware of some of the ridiculous things he has said in the past you would understand why he infuriates me so, but I do agree, I should not have told him to leave the blog and I apologise for doing so. 😀

    I’ve read it a hundred times that I am anti Pardew (or anti parade as Cheik put it) however I am not.

    If you check my posts I always said that I thought Pards was tactically inept at times but a good manager who I believed (if he could evolve tactically) could take the club forward.

    I said several times that I would reserve judgment until next season.

    Anyway sad news about petrov. I hope his story is not lost amongst the Andy Carroll circus!

    Hah
    it’s all got a bit serious hasn’t it. I don’t really care tbh. My football team is doing really well and I get to gloat to everyone who said ‘cabaye who’ or ‘bas dodgy knee’ or ‘ha can’t believe you actually paid for perch’

    negativity is annoying however.

    Change of subject – actual predictions for Sunday

    ps. I’ve actually changed my entire trip coz of this game. Was meant to be going to Laos tomorrow but managed to convince the missus that we should stay in Cambodia a little longer coz I realised I wouldn’t be able to watch the game whilst travelling on a bus.

    Hope I made the right call coz I’ll be gutted of Liverpool win

    I gotta be honest here, and putting this evening’s somewhat harsh treatment of Indian aside, you should like someone who would be very welcome in O.V (or perhaps you are already here…it is a state of mind)

    Well my predictions are a very tense scrappy affair that we will nick 2-1. Us to score first and Gerrard to level with Ba to get back to scoring ways with the winner!

    😀 😀

    18. Ha good. (I’m secretly over the moon that someone with a celebrity such as yourself has directed a post towards me. You don’t know how this makes me feel etc)

    I’ve always been in optim valley. I’ll tell you why. The boys do well when I’m out the country. It always happens I kid you not. I’ve rarely seen us win at sjp but I leave the country and suddenly they are incredible. Just so happens I’ve left england for a whole season. I get back may 1st.

    So I knew this season would be a good one

    Truly impressed with APs professionalism. After so many years with managers at the club who were more in love with their own egos than club success (how’s it going in the Championship, Sam), having one dedicated to the team is refreshing.

    “he looked me in the eye and said he wanted to leave” i think pards is lying. i have never heard that before, and why is he saying that so soon before the game on sunday? we all know why that is. he has had months to say that but instead he waits till we play them at home so the fans will turn on him , nasty trick pards , that is probably one of the reasons why i hate him, regardless of how well the lads are doing.

    Absolute Bollocks.

    At the time I was getting reports from people close to big Andy and believe me he even went AWOL to try and see out the window…He was even stabbed in the back by Kevin Nolan whom he trusted.

    He was told he had been sold and to make the best of it…So he did and got a huge sign on fee and salary, dont blame the lad and one day he will tell all.

    Facts and speculation.
    Facts are Andy Carroll put in a transfer request and went to Liverpool for huge wages which we couldn’t or wouldn’t match after signing a new 5 year contract just a couple of months previous! So how is Pardew a liar?
    Speculation is that Carroll was forced out, but the fact he had a 5 year contract meant he couldn’t be forced out. The liar is Carroll who comes out wii bullshit lies to make out he is less of a traitor to the Geordie nation than he is so as to avoid being hated using Steve Wraith as his mouthpiece!
    Carroll left plain and simply for an extra 30 grand a week, which is slightly more than twelve pieces of silver and makes him the biggest Judas we have ever had fact!
