Andy Carroll Describes What He Will Bring To The Newcastle Attack


Andy Carroll has given an extensive interview on the Newcastle United website. This interview chronicles his journey from his youth days through his times at Liverpool and West Ham, and ultimately back home to Newcastle.

It is a really revealing interview in which Andy shows his maturity and growth from when he was a young man with a bit of a reputation. However, he is back at Newcastle United right now and really seems to appreciate the new chance he has at his hometown club.

While Carroll does say that he despises the gym, he is continuing to work hard to get back to what he loves, and that is playing football. He wants to be back on the field terrorizing defenders. That is what he is known for. As a powerful center forward with a powerful left foot.

Andy has made some comments about his style of play and how it is an under-appreciated aspect of the modern game. This is what he has said:

“It’s actually probably a shame because I think a lot of teams need some of the things I can do.

“I don’t think for one minute that I’m the only person who can do it, but I do think it’s a shame that there’s not many players around.

“I just enjoy it – I really enjoy just getting involved and throwing myself around. I think when you stand out of it, and you’re not involved in it, it’s not fun. You need to be in the mix, getting involved.

“You see most teams now trying to look for the smaller, more athletic players, and it’s nice to know there’s some managers out there who appreciate that that’s not what it’s all about and that you can change it up, chop it up.

“I actually think there needs to be more players like this.”

We are filled with anticipation to see Andy back out on the pitch. We think he will link up very well with either Joelinton playing slightly behind him or even with Dwight Gayle as a partner. Carroll will give Steve Bruce a lot of options if he can stay fit.

Andy Carroll– back at the place he calls home

We also don’t mind if Steve Bruce goes to a more traditional direct style of football at times this season. Getting results is what will matter the most this season, and however the team gets points on the board is fine with us, as long as they do.

Andy is also filled with anticipation about getting back to playing football. These are his thoughts about returning to St James Park for the first time this season.

“I can’t wait to just walk out at St. James’. I really can’t. Honestly, I can’t describe it.

“I walked into the stadium when I was signing and walked down the side of the pitch. Just an unbelievable feeling.

“When I put the shirt on and walk out. I can’t describe it. I’m more buzzing to put it on now, the shirt than I was when I was 17.

“I’m so excited.”

Hopefully, Andy will get to return next month. The reported target is away at Liverpool on September 14th. The first home game after that will be home to Brighton.

That match is now looking like a massive fixture for Newcastle. It would be great to have Andy available to make his return to St James Park then.

    He didn’t play a game last year due to injury
    So he needs to recover from injuries, get fit , find form as a footballer and fit into a team that’s never played a single game with him on the field

    What could possibly go wrong

    There are people who post here, and report in the media who would have you believe anyone or anything is to blame other than Jabba
    Its their job to say it, they are payed to protect the fat greedy get
    Why does he pay people to do this ?

    He is in retail so is vulnerable to bad PR, and his colossal ego.
    With his wealth he has become so accustomed to getting everything his own way he is insulted when people resit his greed

    About a year and a half ago while driving home I listened to a podcast with Caulkin, Hardy and a couple of others, Luke Edwards was one of them. He came across as a Newcastle fan, he called Mike Ashley a c*%t which was a bit out of tune in the discussion. I’ve since seen him called out as an Ipswich fan who’s second team is Ajax as he thinks going to Amsterdam is really cool. Over the last few months most of his articles have been about blaming Rafa for this and that but not giving a reason as to what the actual blame is. I’ve finally had enough of reading his bollorx so told him I’m stopping following his posts, Oldgit1, who that had nothing at all to do with must have seen it and called me a dick. Then, the day after Edwards writes a story blaming us fans for Bruce’s demise, unfortunately with pr!cks like him about the rest of the country will start believing that it is our fault. Newcastle fan my ar$e, as for Oldgit1 he’s still got his head stuck up Jib’s.

    If the PR think blaming the fans is going to be believed by anyone they are desperate
    Theyve got nowt

    It will help with the protests though

    Lets see them explain away the empty stadiums and protests once we really start to struggle
