Carroll Could Still Arrive At Newcastle Late In Transfer Window


Newcastle could very well go back in for former striker Andy Carroll on the very last day of the transfer window, much like Liverpool did back in January of last year, that eventually saw Andy leave his home town club, but only after Liverpool offered a ridiculous £35M in cash for the Gateshead born lad – and Newcastle took it.

Andy Carroll – could still arrive back on Tyneside

With the appointment of Brendan Rodgers in the summer as the new Liverpool manager, it was thought that Andy would not get much playing time at Liverpool because of the new way Liverpool will play the game, with the ball on the ground, much like Swansea City played last summer under Rodgers.

But Andy showed some good form at the end of last season, and he played well for England in the Euro 2012 tournament and scored a stunning goal in the win against Sweden, and as we’ve said before,  we think Andy is as good as he ever was.

And Andy has handled the situation at Liverpool with great professionalism, and let everybody know at Liverpool that he’s willing to fight for his place, and Brendan Rodgers has been impressed with the big lad’s attitude.

But that doens’t mask the fact that Andy is unlikely to get much playing time under Rodgers, and it could well be in both Andy’s interests and Liverpool’s to let Carroll leave Anfield.

West Ham offered Andy a ridiculous £80K/week over eight years  to join the London club,  and £19M in total to take him for a season long loan deal, and then have the option to sign him permanently next summer, and of that £19M it was thought £2M was the loan fee for next season.

Newcastle are still interested in the big lad, and they were reported to offer around £13M for the same deal that West Ham offered Liverpool.

There has been no news recently that Newcastle are going after any striker, and we’re a little surprised the club haven’t made any attempt to get either French International Loic Remy from Marseilles or Manchester City’s young Swedish striker John Guidetti to the club.

Blackburn Rovers have just had a loan offer for John turned down by the Premier League Champions.

Newcastle could still try to get Andy on the very last day of the transfer window, and it has to be a decent possibility they could even be successful in their efforts.

But one thing is for certain, Newcastle will not offer over the odds for the local lad, who has said the only club he would join if he left Merseyside was his home town club, Newcastle.

It seems another opportunity for owner Mike Ashley to show what a really shrewd negotiator he can be, and it remains a possibility very late in this transfer window.

What do you think?

    I was at Pardew thing last night. Very interesting. One question asked if Usain Bolt was to ask to play for the Toon would Pards give him a chance.
    Pards said with a lot of humour ‘well he’s about the same pace as Gabby, wonder if he’s a better player’. All in good humour. Pards went on to say that Gabby was an excellent player, just gets affected by the crowds and lacked confidence. He wants to crowd to get behind him and cheer him on. He honestly thinks if this happens and he gets confidence he’ll be a very good player for us. So lets get behind him and cheer him on and give him a chance.

    Why would we need Carroll now? In every sense, the lad is surplus.

    I’m glad Van Der Wiel deal fell through

    he’s too adventurous for a right back and is often caught out of position

    Hopefully Anita signs up today though

    I think Carr needs major plastic surgery, nowadays clubs see Carr in the stand watching thinks they have a gem in their squad and start to put high prices.

    On the Carroll front, I would not be surprised if Carroll came on transfer deadline day. Pardew wants him, we need him. Imagine being able to rotate Cisse, Ba and Carroll. We’d have more chance of doing well on all fronts. Add Shola and Campbell and we’re sorted up front.

    Going against the stream here, but i feel the need for a striker may perhaps be bigger than that for a CB.
    I reckon Tav can cover well there, and Good is a gamble yet, but he may be a good gamble.
    Up front u have the 3 usual suspects, but one is injury prone and two may go to ACON.
    Or may it’s a bit of a 50/50 matter.
    I’s be happy with either one.

    Didn’t we all hear AP say that Ashley wants us to compete for the top four? Well I’m sorry I’ve been patient all summer and that statement doesn’t seem to be a realistic thing. We’ve been very poor with incoming transfers and I’m starting to get frustrated and nervous. I really can’t see Carroll or Debuchy signing anytime soon. We even seem to be dragging our heels with Anita. Get him flown over and get him signed! We need defenceive cover and a new striker! C’mon please get some deals done.

    The funny thing is is that Carroll is actually good on the ground and is not only used for long balls.

    If only the Scousers knew how to use him like we knew how to use him.

    we have Sammy, Campbell, Vuckic who can also play as forward. I would rather have Ogbonna (CB), if not then no new CB is ok 😀

    Ye, i know they’re there, but how big is the chance they’ll be more prolific than Shola?
    We held many clean sheets last season, but cracked in a few games. We never scored more than 3 goals tho.

    reckon Andy Carroll is nailed on to be coming back here to be honest! Reckon Liverpool will cave in on that loan agreement come 4th of september, pretty sure they’d like him off the wage bill and Rodgers seemed like he wanted rid, surprising because I would class an on form andy carroll as twice the player of Borini! My brother is a big liverpool fan and is usually good for liverpool gossip, he reckons Raheem Stirling will be ahead of Carroll in the pecking order for next season…..

    Nico…Thanks for that. I like Pardew, seems to know how to have a bit of banter and get his point across. I agree on the Obertan thing too, also been saying it for the past year (not claiming to be as knowledgeable as Pardew – as this is just common sense).

    For me, during games, each toon player should get the full support of all toon fans, 100%.

    I agree Carroll is more than useful on the deck, he would also work well for us as we look to mix play up a bit, playing short passes among long balls. Rodgers had Graham up front who is more of a target man. He may stick with Carroll as his main man with Suarez playing off him.

    Another hope to fulfil. It would be a luxury signing though, I would like AJ too (to swell English numbers) but only at the right deal as another luxury.

    So, Anita?, Debuchy?, cf & cb needed.

    Yes we never scored more than 3 goals, I’m more happy if we win 1-0 everytime than concede 4-5 goals in 3 or 4 games. Maybe because I like negative and dirty football than Barca or Madrid type 😀

    Yes lets get behind the lad, he’s got pace to burn and I do get the feeling that if he was mentally right he’d be good. A massive part of the game though being mentally tough.

    Hull…I really don’t see us getting AJ, although would love to see him at the toon. I just think there will be a club willing to offer more of a fee and wages than us.

    But yes, Anita, CB, FB and ST would be lovely.

    Nico…Definitely. I think people underestimate the power of confidence and self belief.

    I suppose the same could be said about a CB who get’s grief so therefore just wants to smack it as far away as possible rather than looking to play a good pass.

    I remember a couple of matches last season where Obertan would get the ball an the
    Crowd would be silent, bomb forward and the crowd would grow in discomfort and then lose possession and the crowd would groan. Thats what Obertan is up against.

    Now compare that to Ben Arfa, he gets the ball and the majority cheer, he bombs forward and the stadium scrams ‘go on!’, he loses possession and the crowd applaud him anyway for his attacking intent.

    Wheres the justice. Obertan was written off long before he kicked a football and I could kidney punch every cock robot that did this I’d do it gladly.

    If we lose our main strikers, we could always play “park the bus”, I know it’s not pretty but it win games especially vs Barca type.

    Must say Pardew came across class last night, seems a really nice fella who is not scared to just say it how it is. He seems to instill a feeling of trust. He said all this talk of there being a rift was rubbish, players get along great and training is full of banter and he looks forward to it every day.
    As far as transfers go I don’t think we will get many more in after Anita. Debuchy?? still might happen. Douglas?? possible. Carroll?? last minute deal. I would love all of them TBH but realistically I’d settle for Anita plus one other.

    I’m sure many people have said this already, but :
    Ed,
    Anita’s wage request was above Ajax’s wage ceiling when he was offered a new contract, NOT Newcastles.
    Apart from that keep up the fine work.

    Redondo – re Carr plastic surgery-

    Or he could just wear one of those blue full body morph suits that people
    Wear to the matches, or a superman costume.
    Nobody will know his true identity 😉

    Re todays issues so far i’d have to agree with ibiza and ian. The only way id see aj here would be a football not money move or a loan deal.
