Pardew Admits He’s Keen To Get Striker Back To Newcastle

Alan Pardew talked about big Andy Carroll at his press conference today, and the Newcastle manager feels that Andy will one day return to play again for Newcastle, but when that will happen he didn’t know – and probably not in the near future.

Andy Carroll Newcastle -career

Andy Carroll – while at Newcastle

Alan has always been a big fan of the former Newcastle striker and his plans to build a side around the Geordie lad went up in smoke less than two months after arriving at Newcastle when Mike Ashley sold Andy to Liverpool for a hefty £35M in cool cash on the last day of the transfer window in January, 2011.

Alan Pardew talked about Carroll, when speaking about the upcoming game against West Ham:

“I think he would want to come back to Newcastle United in the future, and I hope he does come back to his home town.”

“He has got that love here. I really enjoyed working with Andy. I think he’s a terrific player. I know we get linked with him every two weeks, which is always probably going to happen whether it’s me or another manager.”

“I’m not sure that it’s something that’s imminent for us in this window, because he looks fairly happy to me at West Ham.”  ‘I think it’s difficult to take players who are happy out of Premier League teams. It’s financially difficult.”

“I think the Liverpool thing, for me, was a strange one.” “Big Andy’s style was against the way they play.”  ‘He’s much more suited to West Ham and I think he’s been a big success there, I really do.”

“Actually, if you speak to any West Ham fans, they’ll tell you that.”  ‘The only problem is getting him on the pitch – that’s been his biggest issue. If he can have a run, there’s no problem with it.”

“He’s not just a target man, he’s a good footballer and a real presence on the pitch that can win games.”

Newcastle will have to ensure that Andy is not a big presence on Saturday, because the striker who turns 26 in January,  is almost certain to start for West Ham against his former club.

Newcastle are on a six game winning streak,  and of course we are hoping we can make it seven wins in a row by 5:00 pm on Saturday afternoon.

Howay The Lads!!

    Expat, 100% – we need that dipstick like we need a hole in the head. He’s fine where he is, plays 10 – 12 games a season, costs an absolute mint in wages, delivers 3 or 4 goals for the outlay.

    A complete waste of time and money.

    The only saving grace is he is marrying some female wannabe popstar and seems settled down south now.

    If Pardew is so keen to get close to him again, he can bugger off down south as well.

    “In five years we would hope to be challenging for everything,” he said. “We hope to be like Aston Villa. But you need solid foundations. At the moment we’re knocking down walls and rebuilding.”
