Newcastle Make £13M Cash Bid For Andy Carroll


Since Newcastle’s bid last night to take Andy Carroll on loan was immediately turned down by Liverpool, it doesn’t say that Newcastle will not be back in for the Tyneside youngster.

Andy Carroll – on his way home?

And there are reports today that Newcastle have followed up their loan bid, with a straight cash offer of £13M for the 6’3″ Gateshead-born striker, to take him permanently back to Newcastle.

And while that’s still £22M less than Kenny Dalglish forked out for the 23 year-old a short 18 months ago,  it may be good enough for Liverpool to accept the offer.

It’s been a bad deal for Liverpool all around, whichever way you look at it, and we note that Dalglish is no longer the Liverpool manager.

It even makes some of the deals that Freddy Shepherd made during his time as Chairman of Newcastle, when he threw money around,  actually look good, if not great. 😀

The fact that Andy Carroll is making it clear to anybody who wants to listen,  that he’s more than keen to come back home, may well persuade Liverpool to end their adventure  with the Geordie.

That’s even though they will lose a staggering £22M in the process, and it looks like Andy will not even be given the chance to prove himself, under new manager Brendan Rodgers.

And that £22M that Newcastle will pocket, was used to bring in Yohan Cabaye and Papiss Cisse, and  Newcastle will still have around £9M left over – if they bring Andy back for £13M.

The Newcastle bid is in cool cash, and while there is news that West Ham have bid £15M, that fee will be paid over a number of years.

And why would Andy want to go to the Hammers – if Newcastle, 5th top last season in the Premier League and in the Europa League  – are beckoning? Why indeed.

And while we can never be sure how Andy will perform if he does arrives back on Tyneside, we’ve got enough confidence in manager Alan Pardew and the local coaches – fellow Geordie lads John Carver and Steve Stone – to believe that Newcastle will again be able to bring the very best out of  the Gateshead-born striker.

After all, he didn’t look too bad when he played for England last month, and that goal he scored against Sweden was just a classic goal.

To be truthful – that goal reminded  me of one I scored in Walker Park when I was just 10 years old, the only difference being that mine went in just a little bit faster than Andy’s. 😀

    a gross regression if true

    simply can’t believe it

    if it does hold verity, i’d be willing to bet my bottom dollar this was pushed through by AP. can you honestly imagine Carr wanting 13mil of his kitty to be wasted on this heap?

    Effectively letting Liverpool loan AC for 18 months for 22 million is great business however you look at it. Would like to see him come back but it wouldn’t be the end of the world if he didn’t provided we bought someone like Guidetti or Castaignos.

    Already looking forward to the match tonight. Hopefully we’ll get to see a few of our big players making an appearance.

    Well, if that’s the best we can do, it will have to do I guess. Don’t want him, unless an offer has been made and accepted for Ba as Demba is by far a better player than AC.

    He offers more to the club, causes ZERO trouble, NO lifestyle issues, NO Court Cases, just gets on with the job with a smile on his face – a much better prospect all round with none of the downside AC brings back with him.

    I hoped, that as a club, we had moved beyond that type of individual – still, business is business and the world goes round!!

    I think this may be a cover up for some other transfer.
    It’s a very obvious thing, and the media has been getting allot of transfer targets right this window.
    Slapping out a bid for AC would work extremely well to pull the media away from the actual deals.

    if our fullbacks are going to bomb on this season and whip balls in to the box which could well be our next stage of evolution than there is few better to be in the box than the pony tailed lathario

    Agent Carroll, you’ve done well screwing over Liverpool. Mission accomplished, it’s time for you to come home, son!! This reminds me of agent Bruce at Sunderland haha, I wouldn’t mind him back at all. A target man, he has great movement, and he is such a threat at set pieces which is something that we need to improve on VASTLY!! Fact. I’d welcome him back with open arms…

    I’m looking on this as a positive, even if it doesn’t come off it means that we have the money to spend if the right player suddenly becomes available
    Personally I’d love to see AC back in the black and white 😉

    1st myth bust.

    I really don’t understand how some fans have perceived that we’re all of a sudden this flair team ,who keeps the ball zipping around the deck regardless. No, no we don’t! AP shifts between tactics dependent on the opponent and situation we find ourselves in.

    Second myth bust.

    Andy Carroll isn’t a head on a stick (though some of you would have his noggin’ on display that way I’m sure, you backwards barbaric bleaters). Look at some of his finishing in those videos (now on the last thread), volleys, pings from outside the area, running onto through balls, even one or two deft finishes and of course bullet headers. People tend to speak in polemics, it’s either ‘hoofball’ or Barca style patient tika-taka, that people seem so fond of. There is a balance! A big man can be fed to feet, hold it to relieve pressure and allow us to move up the pitch as a unit, spread the play then charge into the box, or lay it off to midfielders who then slide in runners, or turn their man and have a crack themselves like Drogba so explosively does etc etc – exhausted!

    After all that though, I have to say, none of you were complaining when Ameobi flicked on a launch from Krul and Ba latched onto it to net, against Man U. 😉

    LPool really only paid £15M for Carroll, the difference between what the £35M they paid for him and the £50M Chelsea paid for Torres.

    Torres has been just as big a flop as AC and Chelsea are the ones who really got stuffed on the AC deal. That’s because it was Chelsea who stumped up the £35M in cash that Ashley insisted on, LPool merely handed that onto Newcastle.

    If LPool get £13M they are only £2M down but we are still £22M up and have AC back. That’s a great deal for both clubs and AC.

    The real suckers are Chelsea. How much is Torres worth now? Even if they got £25M they are £25M down.

    It’s clear Rodgers doesn’t want AC and why would he go to West Ham, Fulham or anywhere else when he wants to come back to the Toon. I reckon there is a 90% chance this deal will come off.

    Everyone seems to have forgotten didnt we have a 20% sell on clause in the contract so if AC was sold we would get yet more money. If correct that gives us some real clout when discussing his return

    We could offer 15M and let them keep the 20%.
