“But I don’t know what the score is with the financial side of Andy. It’s something I intend to investigate.”

- On 25th February 2007, Carroll made his Premier League debut for Newcastle, coming on as a substitute in the 87th minute in the 1–0 defeat by Wigan Athletic,
Those are the real facts – when will this “The world according to Joe Kinnear” stop?
