    For everybody debating the economic costs and merits of an Andy Carroll move to St. James’ Park, take note of the Adebayor situation. It is VERY similar.

    Adebayor moved to Man City for a 25M transfer fee in 2009. He’s on 170k/week. Man City wants him off the wage bill. He’s still in his 20s, scored 18 goals(!) last year, yet Man City is desperate to sell him for ONLY 5M! (Why aren’t we or anyone else in for EA at that price? Because he only wants to play for Spurs.)

    But no one, including Spurs, can/will pay him 170k/week so Man City must subsidize the wages or EA must take a pay cut, OR a combination of both.

    Same scenario is happening with Carroll! Liverpool is contractually obligated to pay AC 70k/week for the next FOUR years (that’s 16M total), but they don’t want him.

    Carroll, like Adebayor, holds the cards on a move. If he really wants to return home and play for us, he could agree to a pay cut, say to around 35-40k/week, but ONLY for a move to Newcastle.

    Eventually, Liverpool would have no choice but to sell him to us for 5-10M.

    Who wouldn’t jump at getting Carroll back for 8M transfer fee and 35k/week wages on a four year contract?!

    All it would take to make this happen is Andy agreeing to HALF his wages (an 7-8M loss over the next 4 years), and no #9 jersey. That’s the key. Is AC willing to do that? How badly does the Geordie boy want to come home to revive his career?

    The Gunners’ sale of Alex Song to Barcelona, which was confirmed on Monday, has reignited speculation they could look to M’Vila, who is valued at around €20 million, as a replacement.
