There are reports in London that Newcastle may be interested in bringing Andy Carroll back to Newcastle, after the local lad left his home town club for Liverpool in a £35M deal in January of 2011.
Andy Carroll at West Ham – many injuries
We suppose it was only to be expected that we would again be linked with Andy when Newcastle are in need of three good strikers this summer.
But there seems to be no truth whatsoever in the rumors, and in any case if Andy is on £100K/week on a six year deal down south, then there is no way Newcastle would pay him wages like that.
For one thing Andy is a little injury prone, and after signing on for the Hammers last summer for around £17M, he missed the first half of the season through injury, and played only 16 games with two goals for the Hammers last term.
There was uproar on Tyneside when the Gateshead striker was sold to Liverpool three and a half years ago – but Andy hasn’t really developed into the tip top player we thought he could become at that time.
There’s still time for him to do that of course with the lad being only 25 years old, but injuries have blighted his career so far, and he didn’t make the England squad for the World Cup.
We suppose we’ll be linked with Andy even in the future, but the chances of the Gateshead ever returning to the club he still supports – have to be very slim.
Sean Borland has a student season ticket and since he will be away in Calgary studying for a while he wants to sell his season ticket for the first half of the season. The price is £140 – which is what he paid for it – you can contact Sean at firstname.lastname@example.org
