Is Andy Carroll Worth £10M To Newcastle This Summer?


One of the things Newcastle Managing Director Derek Llambias talked about during his exclusive interviews to the Evening Chronicle and Newcastle Journal last week, had to do with former striker Andy Carroll, who is on loan to West Ham for the rest of this season.

Andy Carroll – on loan to West Ham through May

Since there is no future for him at Liverpool under manager Brendan Rodgers, the Merseyside club will try to sell him for as much as they can in the summer, but they’ll get nowhere near the £ 35M they paid Newcastle for him just over two years ago..

It looks like West Ham have first refusal – but the price is a hefty £17M, and there’s no way any club would pay that much for Andy – but he may be worth around £10M to Newcastle, but we don’t think Mike Ashley would be willing to go much higher than that.

We knew Derek LLambias had a soft spot for Andy, after he defended him after the Gatehead lad was booed off the filed last April at St. James’ Park, when we walloped Liverpool 2-0.

These are the things Derek said last week about Andy in his exclusive interview in the Evening Chronicle:

“We’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for Andy here.” “He’s a character and he’s getting older and more mature – and he’s stronger.” “It’s unlucky what has happened at West Ham. But he scored a great goal at the weekend.

“He’s still got a house up here. Andy was part and parcel of our growth.”

Newcastle will need to get another  striker in over the summer, and we’ve been linked with Ricky van Wolfswinkel of Sporting Lisbon, Wilfried Bony of Vitesse and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Saint Etienne.

If Newcastle could bring Andy back for say £10M – and that may be a big if – do you think he would be worth that much?

Should Newcastle Sign Andy Carroll For £10M?

    I don’t want Andy back at the club. We should be looking at snapping up Benteke from Villa. Him and Alderweireld are both french speaking belgium internationals and will fit in with the rest of the squad. I’d take Carrol for no more than £5m though. He’s nowhere near in the class of Demba Ba.

    I said no at £10m. Around £7m I think would be decent for Andy and I would expect him to perform at Newcastle. Think we’ve discussed this sometime before 🙂

    As someone suggested the other day he would replace shola in the squad. The problem is the figures banded about we would need to pay. For just over £10m we have bought 3 French int. players in Cabaye, Debuchy & Sissoko.

    Now does it start to seem a little steep?

    I don’t think we should buy back carroll!!! he’s too slow…much like cisse…carroll and cisse are quite similar in their style….if we get him for 6-7 million..then take him as a reserve striker..but we surely need another proven big, strong, pacy and goal scoring striker IMO…Howay the Lads!!!!

    What is it with these characters that moan about how much a player will cost, get a life its not your money! Repeat. I am only a Fan, I have no input into the way the club operates, it belongs to a Billionaire, who does not care about what i think or say!

    Yo…I don’t think it’s so much about caring what they spend, but for £10m what else we could buy.

    Robin….The club sees fit to pay out money to hire Pardew as manager and you moan about that.

    its true we have got a sell on pecentage of 10 pecent on him but i think if we were to get him back for 8 10 million of liverfool they would make sure we didnt get that pecentage back on agreeing to buy him back for that money after we ripped them of so much

    Greetings minions, what be we discussing?

    Ah carroll again. Hm didn’t we discuss this before? ah well i’d pay 10 max for him. although even at 10 there’d still be better options that suits the players we’re got better than carroll.

    I think carrs probably out right now searching for striker targets, we ideally need 2 in at the summer. Ideally with different attributes to cisse such as pace and power which cisse lacks.

    IN .. I would definitely bring him back to NEWCASTLE.
    1- he is local (currently we lack local players)
    2- foreign players will eventually leave after 2-3 years (andy wouldn’t unless pushed out)
    3- he is only 24

    Partnering Cisse with Carroll would cause the same problems as Cisse with Ba. So he’d have to be a tactical option from the bench or as a back-up for Cisse.

    He’d try his heart out for the club I’m sure, but the wages are a problem again. Would he take a significant pay cut to play for his home club again?

    By the looks of things cisses becoming the new scapegoat, thats fine as it protects shola and willo now they’re being phased out. Pards is gonna have to take up a fair bit of the slack though 😉

    Was anyone else impressed with Tiote when he came on? He looked fired up to fight for his spot, made a couple of good challenges and pinged a few passes about.
    He has a presence that neither Anita nor Perch have, I think with Cabaye and sissoko around and in front of him he will be less isolated and will be big for us in the run in.
    All he needs is to work on his fitness injuries wise and card obviously.
    I’m not so ready to cash in on him as some, with the right players around him he can be a great asset to us.

    I am still undecided about bringing big Andy back

    10 million is a lot of money for him on his current form but he would be an upgrade on Shola !!!

    Personally i would like us to sign the following :

    Ince – 8 million
    Alderweild – 10 million
    Benteke – 12 million
    Mcguire – 3 million

    Obviously the figures could be different but i honestly think that we will spend a good amount in the summer as the money from Wonga and Television money will increase the transfer kitty and we are only 3 or 4 good quality signings from a beast squad

    Get rid of some of the dead wood and loan out all of the youngsters as well to free up room for players

    We also need to look at signing more home grown players and Tom Ince would be perfect the lad has it all he would be great on the left hand side Redmond would also be a good shout to sign as well along with that Harry Mcguire guy from Sheffield United what a defender he is going to be !!

    But if we got everyone on my list AND Carroll then that would be dreamland

    Not worth the money; have you all forgotten all the trouble he had with the law! There are many more professional players available for that price – if we want a local player, I’d far rather spend the money on Ince.

    a striker of andy carrols dimension is hard to find these days ,he really gives a team a plan b ! im not saying hes perfect for every game but there is games this season were weve been crying out for him ! his hold up plan , heading ability , stranght , knock downs and chances created are his strengths, the fact hes a geordie and bleeds black and white, when he puts on a toon shirt he looks a different player all together he doesnt look at home being a west ham and even worse so at liverpool, he lacks confidence , i think he comes across like a bit of a hard man , but i think its been easy to see since hes left necastle hes been hurting, when he got taunted on his returns to st.james , he just looked liked he wanted to crawl into a big dark hole and hide away.
    I honestly feel if he came back hed be a different player than the one were seeing atm and at liverpool, he was a beast and he was feared so much by all cb’s when he played for us, now we have even more quaility a the club , imagine him and sissoko bossing defenses with there strength and benny boy and gouffran and benny boy tortureing defenses with their skills , i reckon cabaye would scored a few volleys with carrols knock downs lol hes a big upgrade to a kevin nolan!!
    atm the votes are pretty 50/50 but i reckon alot of the no’s are bitter because still have a sour taste in their mouth over how he left

    Would be a step back to bring back AC. BUT we need more strikers and if the price is less than £10 Million we could do a lot worse. I think his market value is no more than £8 Million but there isn’t a cat’s chance in hell Liverpool will accept that, especially from us. He’ll end up at a Stoke or West Brom for that kind of money, or Liverpool will have to loan him out again. He’s on big wages so would have to take a MASSIVE cut to come and warm our bench.

    Rainrix….Honestly I am. Just disappointed as I’ve had in my dream team all season – that worked out well.

    Tommy…I thought he did pretty well when he came on as well. When Tiote is on form there aren’t many better at that enforcer role, sadly though, he’s been a shadow of his former self this season, but then again, so have many of our players. I say lets see how he does for the remaining games, but if right now I had to chose one of our top players to sell to generate cash, it would probably be him, which is sad as he was one of my favourites. However, I’m not sure if we would still carry enough of a price tag to warrant selling him?!?

    If you compare AC scoring record to Cisse, he’s not even close. If you bring back AC or similar player, we will end up playing hoofball!

    i agree thou if we can get a striker like bony for 12 million or bentake 10 million then they should be first choice. cisse never going to work in a 4 2 3 1 formation his main strengh is poaching he doesent offer much else after that even if he was to score 10 goals from now till the end of the season i would still want another streker in ahead of him

    Carroll over Cisse??? Fickle bunch…

    Cisse might be going through a rough patch right now, but I’d attribute a lot of that to the lack of clarity in his role on the pitch. Hopefully he can get his mojo back with Gouffran on one side of him and Ben Arfa on the other…

    some games we would need cisse more to andy and vice versa , cisse gets bullied far to easily sometimes, he doesnt scare defenders anymore, unless were playing a game were plenty of chances are created and he might score one, we lack presence in the penaltly box and set plays alot of games

    I think with our recent record in the transfer market there are better deals to be done than Carroll like a Bony or Wolfswinkel.

    Personally think we need a mobile striker in the Bellamy mold (without the attitude), with Carroll it will be far to easy to just play long to him

    donkeypunch – Cisse poaching? Did you see some of the goals last season? He scored from all over the place!

    As for Benteke for £10m, no chance unless Villa are relegated. Even then, I doubt it. He cost Villa £7m and he’s done very well. Then there’s also the factor that he’s only had half a season in the PL, so could be found out. I doubt his record is any better than Carroll’s was in his season for us.

    Sarf… Thats exactly what i was talking about scapegoating cisse. He might not be scoring but he’s getting into good positions, is playing a role in build up play and is making good runs. He took 2 players with him on saturday and gave gouffran the space to score his goal. the goals will come. Some people on here are idiots full stop 🙂
