New Signing Already Paying Dividends Off The Pitch But Bruce Can’t Wait To See Him On It

One of the reasons we are thrilled with Andy Carroll coming back to Newcastle is the experience he will be able to impart to the younger strikers.
Andy has been through a lot in his career.

He has had a lot of tribulations, especially of late, with injuries. He also went through the disappointment of much-publicized move to Liverpool that didn’t work out for him.

Andy is also a natural striker who can help a player like Joelinton while he adapts to leading the line. Of course, the fact that Andy is a local lad will make the other players all that more inclined to take his advice. He knows all about the club and can help instill some of that passion into our new signings.

Steve Bruce and Andy Carroll– already taking a leadership role

At Steve Bruce’s media briefing earlier today, he was explicitly asked about Carroll’s impact at the club so far. This is what Bruce had to say:

“Well it’s only been a week of course since he’s walked through the door. You can just see the other day, for example, we had a meeting with the strikers.

“He was in there giving his opinion. They all want to be around him. They want to feed off of his experience and his ‘know-how.’ And also of what Newcastle is about.

“So all of his experience can only be a positive. And, of course, the biggest positive of them all is when you see him out on the training ground. Because if we can get the lad fit, then we know we’ve got a smashing player as well.”

This is what we expected from Carroll, who is just delighted to be back at Newcastle. He has a second chance at the club he loves. It seems like he is going to do everything he can to make it work.

    Bruce is just a pawn in fat man’s chess game! He probably realises he can’t win but can’t resist the pull of his home town club and a premiership club. After all, when he fails everyone will blame Ashley for under investment! £25 million net spend! Wow considering we spent £15 million in 1996, 23 years ago, that’s impressive! NOT

    Ya tarquin, I agree. In fact Bruce should win two cups or hang him from tyne bridge. He managed the makems so thats an offence right there.
