Carroll Situation To Be Cleared Up Shortly – Liverpool Chairman


Liverpool’s American  chairman Tom Werner has said today to Sky Sports,  that it’s really up to the new Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers to decide what will happen with Andy Carroll, now that the 23 year-old Geordie striker has arrived in Boston and linked up with the Liverpool squad.

Andy Carroll – no future at Liverpool?

But from the comments Brendan has made, and from the way Swansea played with the ball on the ground, which the former Swans manager has said he will employ at Liverpool, it doesn’t look like Andy Carroll will be part of Brendan Rodgers’ plans for the new season

And if that’s the case, surely it’s then up to Liverpool to either let Andy Carroll leave on a permanent transfer,  or loan him out for the season to another club, so at least the England striker gets some playing time.

It’s a little embarrassing for Liverpool that after only18 months after his £35M move to the club from Newcastle, there seems no role at Anfield for the 23 year-old Geordie boy.

And we know that Newcastle have an offer on the table to bring Andy Carroll home, and it’s a one season loan offer with the option of a permanent deal for £12M at the end of the season, with Liverpool reported to want closer to £20M for their striker – no chance.

The Liverpool Chairman Tom Werner told Sky Sports News today:

“Brendan is clearly the leader here.” “The only thing I can say is we will do what is best for the club. At the moment Andy is on the squad, he is an important member of the England team and he has a lot of talent. We will see what happens.”

 “Hopefully the question will be answered shortly, but at the moment Andy is on the team and we look forward to him contributing.”

As the pre-season goes on and if Andy doesn’t seem to be fitting in at Liverpool under Rodger’s new playing style it will become embarrassing to Liverpool, and they will be under pressure to do something for Carroll.

So it’s probably not a bad strategy for Newcastle to just wait and see how things develop in the summer, and Liverpool know that Alan Pardew is only too willing to take Andy back to Tyneside  – but only at the right price – of course.

    Repost – @ Valci the same applies to the scotish league, 80% of tv monies always went to the old firm teams and the remainder were shared by the other SPL teams.
    Chatting to a hearts supporter who is over the moon about Rangers demise as the other teams have now got 60% to share and gives them a chance to catch up.
    I believe this was the motivation behind the vote to not keep Rangers in the SPL

    Honestly I just dont see us getting him back this summer and after his later performances last season and his Euros I think he deserves a chance to play for Liverpool if he isnt playing come January he might be shipped out

    Let the bindippers keep it up – paying out £80k a week with nothing in return; a disgruntled player moaning about no game time – eventually it has to start to hurt the team.

    No doubt by January, they will have had enough and will be calling up that nice Mr Ashley asking him to help them out of the mess they created lol

    @ Graeme totally agree, but in the meantime lets get a young fast skilled striker in who can play on the left wing.
    As long as we have Ba and cisse i dont think AC is needed in this transfer window.

    Ivory Coast vs Senegal

    1 team going to ACON then nothing until 2015.

    Cisse and Ba or Tiote and Doumbia

    African sentiments need not apply!

    My reply was basically ………

    Carroll, because if he does want to come back, then he won’t leave again so we will potentially get 10 years out of him. And he’s not African (for obvious reasons).

    Let’s hope it sends this time 🙂

    We need pace. We have none up front, no threat in behind so defences can push right up against us and make it difficult to pass through the middle.

    Said it so many times Im bored but if we play 4-2-3-1 then we only play with 1 CF and we have Ba, Cisse and Shola. Whereas how many people do we have to play wide?
    HBA yes
    Jonas, no, not in this formation as we need goals and assists from the LW and he doesnt contribut enough.
    Obertan, no, same as above
    Marveaux, possibly, time will tell but I fear a Dyer scenario.
    Sammy, hasnt proved anything yet.

    So we only have HBA who can be relied upon to score, create and actually take people on and beat them. We need more, at least 3 of these players for the season, if he gets injured we have no-one!!

    I’d take Carroll back because he is a different type of striker to ba and cisse but that being said I’d prefer a small nippy striker. Someone eithe similar style of play to Michael owen or jermain

    oldgit – yeah i suppose you are correct about SPL and how the teams voted. Makes sense. Thats why it bothers me when people praise Barca or Real…yeah they play a good game but they have an unfair advantage over their adversaries and until that changes i will never truly appreciate them.

    On the Carroll issue…just get him home already! im tired of these endless sagas.

    *+Jermaine Defoe. But not those players. This is because that type of striker is completely different to cisse and ba and gives us a few more ways to play when things need changed for different opposition

    Jbdubai… No pace? Hba. Marveaux. Cisse. Jonas deceptively quick, as is Ba. Their running style looks slow but they cover lots of groung quickly. Sammeobi likewise. Abied,cabaye and tiote are no slouches either.

    Carroll – same reason as Toonboy_84

    He’ll be our CF for ten years.
    15-18M divided by 10 …

    If Nolan got into double figures from Andy’s knock downs imagine how many Ba, Cisse, Cabaye and HBA will score.

    Best years to come … get him signed.

    Also @ jddubai, I’m confused. You seem to be complaining that we should be playing 4 2 3 1 with our current squad, but then also complaining that we don’t have the players for it? Surely we should play a formation we DO have the players for?

    First post, long time reader, but Bloomin Marveaux-lous’s comment on Doumbia prompted me into registering finally!

    Doumbia over Carroll anyday of the week, would love to see Carroll back at SJP, but Doumbia is electric, and if he were to be available for the same money as Carroll, it’d be a no brainer in my eyes.

    Bloomin marv… But that would be potentially 3 strikers away for acon. We’re left with shola up front on his own supported by attacking midfielders. One injury and its all over.

    Why is it that none of the alleged top teams have shown an interest in Ac, are we deluding ourselves thinking he would bring back the so called glory days, the only teams that showed any interest in him was fulham and wh. yea right
    I feel he is so overated and will eventually (if we get him back) change our way of play and what AP is trying to do.
    Top teams go for skilled players look at manu, chelsea, Manc, surely that is what we should be going for lets get a gem that has skill in abundence, rather than a donkey to play hoofball with.

    @Mark

    It wouldn’t be like that at all. Either Cisse and Ba would be away of Doumbia. Then in 2015 I’m sure many things wouldn’t changed including the retirement of Shola and the progress of youngsters.

    @toontdoonunder. They don’t actually spread into the city, there is just a small colony of Orange People neer the coast, and they only release them to film this god awful car crash of a tv show. Few if any of the cast are ever actual geordies.

    @bloomin marv… We also have to considder the new rules of how many non-home grown players we have. We must be pushing the limit now, and with possible debuchy and maybe someone like anita, we could run out of places.

    Just got one thing to say after reading some comments above.
    I’ve got a good feeling that Obertan might just surprise us this season.

    There, I’ve said it.

    I watched 2 of the friendly games and the boy looked sharper and was very, very fast. As long as he has improved his end product i.e passing and shooting we might be on to a winner there.

    Well, heres hoping anyway.

    I get the feeling that our interest in Remy is a smokescreen, sorry diversion to make ‘Pool realise there are other options, and to keep their price realistic, well down from their current valuation and even below what we have (reportedly) offered.

    Plus, if Remy’s wages would be £45,000-ish, then the message to AC is – you have to accept the same.
    Don’t know that he will, though, but he must know he will have to fit in with our wage structure, hence a big cut in salary.

    I would rate Remy better than AC as a striker – BUT – AC offers us different options – Remy too maybe but to a much lesser extent.
