Three Reasons Andy Carroll Not Coming Back To Newcastle


There has been a lot of news recently about Newcastle wanting to get Andy Carroll back to Newcastle in January, with the Chronicle bringing out an exclusive yesterday that West Ham would offer Carroll to Newcastle in January, but since that report came out West Ham have denied it completely.

Andy Carroll – why he’s not coming home

The basis of that news is that Andy is very expensive for West Ham with a huge wage, and yet he is all too often out injured and is again missing half a season this season after being out until January last season.

That’s why he’s an expensive player, but in a question and answer session with fans West Ham co Chairman David Gold was asked if he would sell Andy Carroll to Newcastle – here’s the Q and A that went on:

Question: If you were offered £10M for AC from Newcastle, would you think about accepting it?

Answer from Gold: No I wouldn’t.

That’s probably the best response to give in public by Gold even if it isn’t exactly the truth – but West Ham will not sell Andy to Newcastle for peanuts either – so one reason we think he will not return to Tyneside is that Mike Ashley will simply not pay the money for him.

That’s the first reason Andy will not be coming home, and that reason shouldn’t be too much of a shock to Newcastle fans.

The second reason is that Andy is on a (very) high wage at West Ham, and Newcastle will not offer him the same wage to come back to Newcastle, especially when he is so injury prone.

And the third reason is what the Chronicle is reporting today,  that Andy is happy and settled in London, and wants to repay West Ham for the loyalty they have shown him since he’s been in London,  and out injured for long periods.

Andy’s been consistent on saying that since he joined West Ham, and his agent Mark Curtis has told the Chronicle today there is “not a chance”  he will return to Newcastle.

This is also what a close friend has told the Chronicle about the former Newcastle talisman:

“Andy is really happy in London.¨ “He’s settled and he just wants to get back to scoring goals for West Ham.”“He’s working very hard on fitness and hopes to be back on the pitch soon.”

We thought the best chance Andy could arrive back at Newcastle was if we arranged a loan deal for him from January through the end of the season, and that would be if Andy cannot get his place in the West Ham side, and wants to play first team football elsewhere.

The two new West Ham strikers Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia have been playing very well since being signed in the summer,  and there is talk that Andy may find it difficult to get his place back up front, when he returns from injury sometime next month.

    My now irrational hatred of colo maybe blinding me to other captains but that’s due to the cult status such a crap player gets.

    And I’m 40 next year so compaired to a few I maybe relatively new yet I can’t rember a captain who wasn’t even the best in his position at the club.
    He can’t organise the defence doesn’t talk to players on the pitch and points fingers at everyone on the pitch for his own short comings.

    The most vocal I’ve seen him since he’s been here is in the last two games when he dropped a bollock and started shouting at linesman and ref.

    Fancy asking Jeff such a question – he’ll not remember posting let alone be able to say why he did.

    Jeff did try to impress us with some narrative that he thought would show off his highly-tuned business skills and knowledge.

    However, as he couldn’t build on them, I took them as an exercise in copying and pasting – much like the SD shares data.

    Bull-chit!

    If colo is a poor captain the club only has itself to blame! They’ve shipped out every player with leadership qualities or a personality! Yanga-Mbiwa was a great captain in France, Cabaye, Nolan, Harper, Barton all strong personalities with leadership qualities! Fair enough not the greatest players but we lack a togetherness and a voice! Whats come in are talented players but theres no1 to lead! Nor will there be! We’re not even linked to leaders! When cloughie was at Derby he brought in an aging Dave Mackay whos experience, leadership, organisation and personality transformed the team despite him being slow as a post! This is the kind of player we need and lack!

    I dare say the only NUFC player I’ve hated more than colo is Kieran Dyer the future England superstar.

    Think Carroll knows that there is no chance of this happening….

    West Ham didn’t deny they were looking to get rid, they flatly denied he had been offerred to any club including Newcastle and said they couldn’t know if Toon would bid for him come Jan….

    I hope we don’t – even on a free he would just sit in sick bay taking a large chunk of wages

    Bang on mate, the club getting rid of those type of players is why we’re in the situation we are now.

    There’s no leadership or fight in any of them.

    Those players did not fit into the Ashley Pardew model. Outspoken, ambitious, playing for the pride, wanting to win things….

    I am trying to glean a positive out of the fact that Ashley has infact personally attended our recent games both home and away?
    He can study our balance sheets in bed …. and tinker with our club policies remotely from afar
    Why be there Mike, whats up?
    Some sort of change in the air?
    Going to surprise us all no doubt.

    The players we have are fine for midtable obscurity but you’ve got to worry when it comes to a relegation scrap!
    Our captain rolled over last time we where relegated and was dropped by the end of the season!
    I’d personally play Taylor, Dummett, Colback and Armstrong and perhaps ameobi as at least players from the region will have An attachment to the club!
    Id play a 4-4-2 of Krul,
    Janmaat, Taylor, Colloccini, Dummett
    Cabella, Colback, Sissoko, Ameobi
    Cisse , Armstrong.
    That gives us tiote, Anita, Riviere etc from the bench too

    @mecannylad – i found it odd he was at stoke on a cold and rainy monday night!
    Hes already been to as many games this year as the whole of last season i think?
    Surely any idiot that is at our games can see the football has been garbage for a year (maybe 2 years)

    Well, if we have 3 reasons why AC wont be coming back to Newcastle, is it safe to assume this will be the last article about Andy Carroll coming back to Newcastle?

    Unless of course we can think of a 4th or 5th reason that is.

    The reason Carol won’t come to Newcastle is it’s easier to score in London without being as obvious and I’m not talking goals.

    WHU are just trying to pacify their fans . Suspect they snap our hands of for below£10m.

    Andy’s agent knows there is no chance of us coming in for him and Andy has to say he needs to pay back WH fans.

    Seem to recall he was staying at L’pool until he was pushed out the door.

    Worries me why this won’t go away though. Was that WH opening gambit went wrong?

    Take away injury problems and at right price why not but rumours at time of L’pool sale was that he had similar problems to Woodgate – muscle wastage when recovering from injuries which would be ongoing or some such.

    He won’t leave west ham because he’s on 90k a week, simple as that.

    No other kernt would pay him anywhere near that.

    It’s a daft story that has been popping up constantly from he left.

    Not much wrong with that side but leaving aside Tiote for Sissoko option I would worry a little about effect on Armstrong of team continuing to struggle.

    He is a young Geordie and fully understands the expectations right now but could put him back a few years or altogether if things don’t work out. Seems grounded but there is immense pressure at present. Would
    Coming off bench be worse or not? Not sure.

    Belfast…Don’t be so hard on yourself. You could definitely give me 5 reasons. They’d all likely be nonsense and I definitely don’t want to hear them.

    In case it wasn’t clear, the joke behind my post was that you may stop posting. Oh well 🙂

    I guess I should probably add something more than this tit for tat we have going on today, so ermm, footballs aye, they’re pretty round.
