Carroll Disappointed At No Newcastle Move – Could Stay At Liverpool


It’s not an ideal situation after an injury packed season on loan at West Ham, that Andy Carroll is now out for three or four months with a heel injury, which he picked up in the final game of the season.

Andy Carroll – in a corner

And it’s certain that Andy was hoping he could return back to Newcastle next season, but it was the £15M fee that West Ham were willing to pay out that scuppered that potential deal, because the most Newcastle were willing to pay was around £10M.

And the Evening Chronicle today quotes a source close to Andy that confirmed he wanted to move back to Newcastle.

This is what the source said:

“Andy was open to a move back home but it looks like that isn’t on the agenda at Newcastle, and now so he is considering his options.” “He was disappointed as a Geordie lad, but his main aim is to get over his current injury then get as many games under his belt as possible.”

The news yesterday was that Andy was wanting an increase in his wages to around £100K/week, something West Ham can hardly afford, but nothing will be done until he completes the holiday he is on right now, over here in the states.

It’s a pity Newcastle couldn’t get Andy back to his home town club, and certainly when we held this poll starting May 26th, a majority of fans wanted him back even if the fee was £15M.

Should Newcastle Sign Andy Carroll for £15M?

Andy held talks with Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers before he left on vacation, and the former Swansea and Reading manager did bring up the cases of Jordan Henderson and Stewart Downing who have come back at Liverpool, after seemingly having their careers be over after Brendan came in last summer.

The good news there is that the Liverpool manager is open-minded, but the type of striker Andy is just doesn’t fit with the style of play of Liverpool, and that’s unfortunate.

As we said, it’s a pity we cannot get the Geordie lad back on Tyneside, but it’s not to be, and we suppose there’s even a chance Carroll could stay at Liverpool.

That could happen,  but Andy will need to think of his England career, and will need to be playing regularly next season if he is to force his way into the England World Cup squad.

And we think when he looks at his current situation – West Ham is probably his best choice – and they are a good and well supported club after all.

They are just not his home town club, which seems to have been his number one choice this summer.

    don’t believe a word of it ED. If you want an indication of the truth then believe the exact opposite of what Lambias and pardew say.

    Carroll is unfortunately coming home…4 year deal 60k a week plus bonus’.

    aaaaaarrrrrrrrrggggggghhhhhhhh…the beautiful game is back in SJP

    As for Carroll, another non story. “As a geordie he is disappointed” Well, as geordies, many people were disappointed you decided to leave for a some extra cash. Grass greener, goes around comes around etc…

    I don’t think he ruins players , he just dosnt play to there strengths

    and in turn I think the players just tune out , they get paid regardless,,

    if you take there ability away and focus on just fitness, our team looked like a pub team, no movement, dying towards the back end of games, to many silly injuries

    IBIZA “shouldn’t we want the best talent we can get for our team? Just seems an odd way to look at it.”

    Who is the ‘we’ in your comment…’we’ the supporters or ‘we’ the management

    Jail… 🙂

    Catchy…That may well be the case and is probably a far more reasonable comment than he ruins players. My point was more (Sparky, this should answer your post too), as fans, regardless of who the manager is or what he will get out of them, don’t we want the best players?

    Remember what good players did last season in spite of Pardew :-O

    Hatem (from previous thread)…That’s kind of lending itself to my sub point. Are we just at the point now where we just don’t care about anything NUFC anymore? It seems that seeing as we have issues in some areas that people have just completely given up. Not suggesting people don’t follow the toon, so please don’t read too much in to it, but if there is no hope and people want to bring the negative in to pretty much every aspect of the club, then why bother?

    Interesting read the Deloitte’s review of
    football finance. Massive surge between
    2006-12 in player salaries in the premier.
    Arsenal are freeing up financial resources
    for transfers by cutting wage bill by £ 10
    million which Wenger describes as being
    Socialist and wasteful. We need to do the
    same in order to upgrade with 3 quality
    signings particularly an attacking winger/
    wideman and strong ST to hold the ball
    whilst we get more players into the box.
    Where is Llambias when we need him.
    Other clubs are making the right noises.
    Maybe Dekka is moving with stealth.

    Lesh…And what a wonderful day it is 🙂

    Everyone has their own way of dealing with things and it wasn’t meant in an attacking way at all, just curious as to why, if you get zero enjoyment out of something, which appears to be the case, then why put yourself through it to the extent some are.

    Not my business really, just being nosy 🙂

    Sack…The managerial issue I am watching closely at the minute is Laudrup and his transfer budget requests. Not looking to good at the minute. How dare a manager feel, after doing well with what he’s got, that he should be backed…especially with the extra games EL will bring. Not comparing Pardews managerial skill set with Laudrup, but it is a funny one…to me at least.

    I have mixed feelings on the current discussions regarding Pardwho, because as has been said over and over and over and over and over and over and over again the guy has not got a clue (which I agree with) but we are stuck with him for the foreseeable future so why don’t we just stop banging on about him and concentrate on supporting the team and being nice to each other aye 🙂 Good morning all! as for ITK’s per previous threads, if someone wishes to share their gossip or rumours with us what’s the big problem if they are wrong? I.E torqtoon shares his with us and if they are found wanting he gets slated. WHY? and no I’m not torq in disguise 😉

    Ahah! It’s Average_Contents! Howdy.

    I agree, although I would. As he’s staying, isn’t it time to just put last season to the side for a bit and to see if lessons have in fact been learned or not? There will be plenty of time to assess and discuss when we actually see what, if anything, has been changed.

    Ibiza, greetings. I think it has more to do with the realization that no matter what we can see being wrong with our club – the owner, the manager, the tictacs, the coaching etc etc nothing is likely to be done about it.

    We are a rich mans play thing, a pastime that will generate him a return on investment and that is all we are to him.

    A Striker and a CB are desperately needed and we may get one of each. But there are many other areas we need strength and some back-up but it doesn’t appear to be on their game plan!!

    Mid-table mediocrity, if we are lucky – what a waste of some of the most talented players we have had in many a year. How long will they put up with the dross before moving on to play FOOTBALL???

    A teenager could be in an F1 car and they press the pedal and it will go fast. Like the players in our team, they can play to a level without much clued up management at all.

    However, when it comes to having to have a pre-plan of which racing line to take, pit stops and racing opponents, it takes another level skill, tactics and coaching to compete.

    If that is not there, you just get straight line speed where you may indeed look successful when passing an opponent, but in the scheme of the whole race, the car will sadly be way off the pace.

    We have the F1 car with a youth driving it with Pardew as manager. Our 5th place was the straight line with the pedal fully pressed, last season we were back to the rest of the race.

    I want the new players in of course, but from what I’ve seen, they’re just going to be mismanaged again. I haven’t been this umderwhelmed in pre-season before Amd I’ve seen some cr4p.

    On a positive note, we need players in before everyone else snaps them up.

    Ibiza yeah your right that’s what I was trying to say, but ppl just keep banging on about it which by the way they are entitled to do so i suppose nothing can be done! Lets all just go back to our miserable lives and stop supporting the toon then we would have nothing to worry or get angry about 😉
    On the brighter side this season cannot get any worse than the last one, can it! 🙂

    Ibizatoon
    Ha ha! Rings a bell we’ve know had
    Martinez and Laudrup guilty of Pardew
    type comments which make sense to
    any fan who knows football. Mind you
    Laudrup is going overboard in looking
    for £ 200 million. In the Europa the
    playing on a Thursday does not help.
    As with players you need more than
    one season to assess. I reckon Martinez
    and Laudrup could be found out this
    season with other clubs after their
    better players. Just wish I felt
    comfortable with our man handling
    of transfers. Like to see some dealing
    part exchange deals but that needs
    imagination. Maybe a call to Harry
    Redknapp!

    Two points re AC
    1 Wht can’t we emulate Brendan Rogers and eschew the kind of football we’re playing – ie no plave for AC
    2 Why qould we want to pay huge bucks for a player who is injured for two thirds of every season?
