We thought £15M would scare Newcastle away from signing Andy Carroll from Liverpool, but the results of our poll are that most fans still want him signed.
Andy Carroll – no interest yet from Newcastle
Newcastle fans by 57% to 43% think Newcastle should still go out and try to sign the Gateshead lad for £15M, although it looks like Newcastle are not interested.
It seems that Andy is still a little dubious about moving to east London and West Ham, although that may be his only option, if no other club comes in for him.
And to make matters a little bit more difficult, that heel injury he picked up last Sunday in the 4-2 win against Reading when former Newcastle captain Kevin Nolan hit a hat-trick, will now keep him out for four months and not the six weeks as initially thought.
So Andy will not be available until September, and he will miss the whole of pre-season, and it shows again that Andy misses a lot of games through injury.
Here’s the results of the poll, and the poll is still open, if you haven’t yet voted.
And there’s been some misleading reports about the 25% sell-on clause that Newcastle have with Andy Carroll – but that only clicks in if Andy is sold for more than £35M – and Liverpool get a profit, which is not going to happen.
