Pardew Wants To Go After Andy Carroll

Alan Pardew talked about both former Newcastle players Andy Carroll and Kevin Nolan, during his press conference yesterday for the game against West Ham on Sunday, and Alan said he would like both of them back at Newcastle.

Andy Carroll – in action for England

But that doesn’t necessarily mean Alan will go after these two players, and Andy Carroll in particular is far too expensive to be brought back to Newcastle, and we just cannot see that happening.

This is what Alan Pardew said yesterday:

“He’s a Liverpool player and not wanted so at some point he’s going to move permanently.” “I’d like to think we’ll be in the mix for that.”

“Big Andy hopefully one day will want to come back and certainly I’d like to have them both in my squad now because we would be stronger for it.”

“But obviously finances restrict me from doing that.” “The fee was astronomical, we have used it well.” “The position we are in, if I’m honest, is because we used the money from Andy’s sale well.”

“He was a brilliant player for us and we owe a great debt to him.” 

The £35M Newcastle received for Carroll was one of the best deals Newcastle have ever made, and the money has been used wisely, and we have brought in Demba Ba on a free transfer and Papiss Cisse for £9M to fill the gap left by the Gateshead lad and those strikers have scored 38 goals between them, and Papiss only joined us last January.

So in short, Newcastle have brought in two top strikers for slightly more than one quarter of the money we got for Andy Carroll.

It’s hard to say the Carroll deal was not good for the club, and unless his transfer price drops from the £17M Liverpool are trying to recoup, there’s just no way Newcastle will be bringing Andy back to Newcastle.

    I am confident this will not happen – we will not pay what Liverpool want and rightly so. Lets just move on to something that has a chance of happening 😀

    I would love for Andy to return. We all know he’s good in the air and on his feet. We all know that pretty intimately while he was with us. Unfortunately, wages, price tags and **** won’t allow us to get him back.

    I’d welcome him back with open arms! I didn’t want him to go in the first place and don’t blame him at all for the transfer. If it wasn’t for our tight arsed owner he probs be on his way in Jan trans window.
    Kenny Dalgliesh should hang his head in shame as he’s var nigh on spoiled the lads career before it took off!
