Andy Carroll is just like the rest of us who were born and brought up in the Newcastle area – you are a Newcastle United fan through and through.
Andy did really well at Newcastle before we flogged him for £35M on January 31st 2011 to Liverpool – but he didn’t make it at the Reds and ended up at West Ham United.
Andy Carroll – while still at his home town club
There was uproar among the fans at that time but since he left Newcastle big Andy has been plagued by one injury after another, but he did start for the London club in their 2-0 defeat last weekend at Watford.
That transfer has turned out to be one of the best Newcastle have ever made, although at the time owner Mike Ashley took a lot of heat from furious fans.
This is what Andy has told Sky Sports today:
“Yeah, I think they will stay up, you know.” “I think it’s tough, and they haven’t been getting the results that they need.”
“But I think the manager has taken over there and I think he will turn it around.”
Andy came through the Youth Academy at Newcastle and before he left us for Liverpool he had played 91 games with 33 goals for the first team.
And since he left Newcastle almost five years ago he´s made only 119 appearances for Liverpool and West Ham combined due to his many injuries.
Newcastle have been playing well but we need to back up that good play with some wins so we can move away from our current 18th position in the league.
A win at Bournemouth in the early kick-off game on Saturday is just what we need and we?l be out of the relegation zone.
Howay The Lads!!
