Liverpool To Unload Carroll – No Way He’ll Return To Newcastle


There is news today in the Sunday Mirror that Liverpool will cut loose Andy Carroll in the summer.

Andy Carroll – a fallen hero at Newcastle

Andy Carroll was a good player at Newcastle, and in his last two seasons at Newcastle he scored 19 goals in 42 appearances in the Championship and 11 Premier League goals in 19 appearances last season, before joining Liverpool for a massive £35M on January 31st last year.

At the time he left, Newcastle fans were furious with owner Mike Ashley, but the way it has turned out it was a good deal for Newcastle.

And for £8M of the money the club received for Andy, we have brought in Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse, who have 25 goals in the Premier League this season – so far.

And Papiss Cisse only arrived in February, and if Andy’s worth £35M how much are these two worth?

Andy has 3 goals in 28 league appearances for Liverpool this season, but don’t expect Newcastle to make any move to bring him back to Tyneside, although rumors are that he would jump at a chance to return to Newcastle.

Liverpool will try to recoup as much of the £35M as they can, but if they can sell Carroll then at least thy will save around £75K/week they are playing the Gateshead lad on Merseyside.

Alan Pardew made it clear before the Liverpool game that Carroll asked for move to Liverpool, when Liverpool came a calling.

And his form and behavior at St. James’ Park last weekend, when he dived for a penalty, and then was seen murmuring expletives as he was taken off the field, didn’t exactly  enamor him to Liverpool or Newcastle fans.

It has turned out to be  a bad move for Andy,  and a terrible move for Liverpool, but Newcastle came out of it very well.

But don’t hold your breath – there’s no way Andy will be returning to Newcastle.

He’s one of many Newcastle players who leave the club and never do better away from Newcastle than they did when they were playing in those famous  black and white stripes, and we’re not even going to mention he had been given the number 9 shirt.

Andy has cooked his goose at Newcastle.

What do you think?

    Ed, I also don’t expect Andy to wear his favourite club’s shirt in a professional capacity ever again.

    We’ve seen Andy’s last Newcastle goal and that’s the end of it.

    We’re a totally different team to the one that he left.

    We now have a squad of ‘winners’. A dressing room filled with group of lads that actually go into games believing in each other and their own abilities. btw, Pards has a lot to do with that…..credit to the man.

    In my honest opinion, he’s a championship or spl grade player, he’s not even half the target man crouch is. So I say he signs for burnley or celtic and does a good job. That way we never have to see him at SJP again. How on earth we fleeced the scouser’s for that much ill never know

    Alan smith makes me feel unwell. As does xisco and ranger. I don’t care if ranger played well recently, I never want to see him in my city again. I’d probably swill him if I spotted him in town. Placca gangsta

    Stoke play ideal style of football for Carroll but they already have Crouch, Kenwyne Jone, Fuller and Sidibie as big strikers that do a good job for them.

    Cant see them breaking the bank for the ponytailed elephant ..

    Andy wouldn’t suit us now cause we’ve changed the way we played since he was here.
    He wouldn’t do much better here than at Liverpool, and i think allot of people hold a grudge on him, especially after that dive in the last game.
    That was a disgusting thing to do against your old club.

    We don’t need Andy back. There are better strikers available for much less. I think he is prone to making bad decisions and now he’ll have to live with them.

    Can’t feel too sorry for him, he is going to be paid 75k to sit on the bench next season. Maybe best case scenario he gets loaned to a mid-table team where he’ll get a proper run in 1st team and find some form.

    If you put aside your hatred of Carroll for 2 minutes then you’d see that he’s a very, very good player who has completely lost all confidence. He was unplayable leading the line for us before he left to join the bin dippers…they play a different style of football and not used Carroll’s strengths at all…they’ve completely wasted him. A happy Andy Carroll playing with confidence would be frightening for any defence to face…..I’d take him back to the Toon at the right price, though I still think he’s a twat of an individual

    Would have him back in a heartbeat.

    Reminds me of Duncan Fergeson and can be unplayable.

    He was sold by a mug to a mug!

    The boy is a Geordie, made a mistake in accepting the move when he saw the pound signs, who wouldn’t?

    Why dont people slag off Peter Beardsley, Gazza, Waddle etc. At least Carroll was forced out!

    No one will pay his wages and a transfer fee.

    He’s Liverpool’s Xisco.
    They’ll have to loan him out and try to cover part of his wages.
    They’ll never be able to sell him for a fee.

    Worth loaning him back for a season or two if we can get him for 20-30k a week.
    Great impact sub or to use when tactically needed.

    The chances of Cessepool getting anywhere near the 335m they paid for him are very slim indeed… plus the fact he’s on a whopping 75k/wk wages, no club below the top 6 could really afford that & those that can wouldn’t be willing to pay out over £10m for him, so I can’t see Cessepool offloading him anytime soon, not with stats like 3 goals in 28 games.. thats shocking…

    Someone mentioned the Vile or Stoke buying him but I can tell you know, neither owners will want that sort of transfer bill, not for a player who can’t score for toffee…

    So Cessepool & Carroll, hard luck, you’ve made your bed, now its time to lye in it… lol lol lol lol lol lol

    carrol was never worth 35million only reason we got so much is the number nine shirt and it’s meaning to the fans and the tradition of the club good buisness from toon side of it not worth 35 mill but a poor player?

    AC showed the raw power that made him a favoutite at the Toon he had left our defence for dead when he made that run which ended in him doing a dive instead of trying to round Krul.His confidence is gone & we are now seeing a shadow of the player he was before he left for Livershite.Sorry Andy you could have been a legend here now your just a Leper.

    Don’t want him, don’t need him. I’d be happy to see him go to Villa, Fulham, even Wolves, somewhere like that. Good luck with the rest of your career, Andy.

    The whole team was set up to play toi Carroll’s strengths when he was with us.

    The gameplan was to feed Barton out wide (Bsrton played out of position to accomodate AC), Barton knocks the cross in, AC eitther goes for goal or knocks it down to Nolan. Great when it worked, no plan B when it didn’t. Thats why we put in so many lousy performances last season – especially at home early season – apart from of course the Villa and Mackem games.

    Carroll was NEVER going to get LPool to set their gameplan up to revolve around him. Not with Gerrard and Suarez in the team. That means he has to play a different style altogether to the one which attracted him to LPool. That is MADNESS if you are signing a £10M player but UTTERLY STUPID if you are signing a £35M record British signing. Dalglish wants sacked for this piece of transfer idiocy. Carroll hasn’t got enough technique or experience to play a different style. He’s been found out, but so has Daglish.

    He could well become LPool’s Xisco because I cant see any club paying more than £10M for him – and no way will he get £75K wages.

    LPools’s ridiculous signings of Carroll, Henderson, Downing and Adams for a combined £80M – all on massive wages – are in total contrast to our new transfer strategy which has seen us sign Ba, Cabaye, Santon, Obertan and Cisse for £20M with wages of £30K-£50K a week.

    And the table tells it all – LPool 13pts behind with 6 games to go. They could finish 20pts behind !

    Ashley did LPool over good and proper. Tough sh*t LPool and tough sh*t Carroll.

    Mind – on Ashley doing LPool over – Llambias said recently that he Pardew and Charnley wanted to sell Carroll when LPool offered £25M. Ashley refused. LPool then offered £30M, Ashley refused. The other three apparently went ballistic and told Ashley it was crazy money and should be accepted. Ashley told Llambias to tell LPool to either pay £35M IN CASH or fk off.

    LPool responded to that by telling Chelsea they could have Torres for £50M but £35M of that had to be cash to get Carroll. So – it was actually CHELSEA and Abramovich who stumped up the daft money for Carroll to get their flop Torres (altho he does look to be finally coming into form).

    So Carroll really only stands LPool £15M – if they £10M for him they’ve only really lost £5M.

    Lousy business its turned out for both LPool and Chelsea.

    I too was gutted when Carroll left the Toon followed by Nolan andBarton in the summer.
    We were suspicious of Ashleys motives and worried about the replacements ,better the devil(s) you know.But hey what a change this season, Newcastle are making the news for the right reasons and Andy Carroll is not needed now.
    Sell him to the Mackems should fit in well with the thugs and the system they play with Larsson and Maclean.

    The thing is he‘s still a very very god player. Liverpool have destroyed his career because they didn’t utilise his skills properly. Realistically he is worth around 8 million being played in a side that would suit his style and no way can he expect to earn 75k a week. Carroll needs to be realistic, let Liverpool take the hit on his ‘price tag‘ go to a club like stoke and rebuild his career.

    i would love to see Andy Carroll return newcastle because the whole thing with liverpool buying Andy Carroll was dumb in the sense that liverpool had already bought, luis suarez, had Kuyt and than later on bought Bellamy and all these player and faster pace and like keep the ball on the floor so why the f**k did liverpool paid 35mill for Andy Carroll who known for his airiel power and strenght on the ball, this at the time made no sense me and to other newcatlse fans and liverpool are seeing what happen when to take stirker away from a team who plays around and for someone with Andy Carroll ability.

    so in the end liverpool should just give us Andy Carroll back so we can turn him back in goal scoreing machine once agian and forget this whole ever happan.

    Be careful someone doesn’t steal your white stick.

    As for comment “made a mistake in accepting the move when he saw the pound signs, who wouldn’t? shows your own colours there are a lot of us who wouldn’t.

    The lad had just signed a new contract and proclaimed to the whole of the north east that he was living the dream. Five minutes later he was banging on the gaffers door demanding more money, some dream.

    He was at the beginning of his career in a club that was 100% behind his development and he jumped ship for a few more quid.

    Now stop the “forced out mantra“, that is only believed by a hand full of muppets now as more and more info leaks out about it.

    As for slitherpoo selling him on, who is going to pay the fee they will undoubtedly be asking and the wages he will now be demanding for a striker who cannot buy a goal???????

    Chelski anyone????????? 🙂 🙂

    benton,

    How can you call ashley a mug? He is a billionaire who pulled off the deal of all time selling Carroll to Dalglish who definitely is a mug.

    carroll = hoofball, simple as and off the pitch he doesn’t look after himself so is aways injured.

    Compare that to Cisse and Ba who are never drunk and hitting women!!

    Bring him back in the summer, I’d much rather see Pardew getting the most of him and him playing as part of the squad for Newcastle. I’d hate to think that he can’t make up for his mistake. He’s been young and greedy, but that’s probably the reason he’s not been happy since he got down there, and it shows. I’d give him another chance, if he drops his wages back down.
