We Need This Man At His Best Through The End Of This Season


There’s an interview on nufcTV today with Andy Carroll, who has just signed on for another season at his hometown club.

And he is a little fortunate to get the chance since this season was another one where he has missed lots of games through injury.

He has appeared 17 times for Newcastle with no goals but five assists, and he was our Man of the Match on Sunday night against Manchester City.

And when he’s in that kind of form, he’s difficult for any defense to handle.

Carroll is still hungry for success at Newcastle, and he was not pleased when he didn’t start the game against Aston Villa in what turned out to be a disappointing 1-1 draw in the middle of last week.

But Andy (shown above on Sunday night) is delighted he has at least one more year at Newcastle.

And while we hope it will be under new owners, the Premier League are taking a long time to come to some decision on the Saudi-backed takeover.

If they stay on the fence say for another month or two, it will have significant ramifications for the club with Mike Ashley still the owner.

Andy was asked about his new deal, and he had this to say as reported in the Chronicle:

“I’m absolutely delighted. It’s been a stop-start season for all of us and especially me.”

“To sign that and know I am here next year is great. Hopefully, I can kick on.”

“It has been tough, I’ve come back from injury and we stopped the season.”

We have started again now. It has been up and down.”

“I am looking forward to finishing this season and starting the next.”

“I’d like to think I am not just about scoring goals.”

“A striker’s job is to create chances and something I really enjoy doing.”

It’s certainly been a unique season caused by the coronavirus pandemic, and the danger of the disease is not over yet.

At least not over here in the US, with cases continuing to climb.

But hopefully, it can be contained, and a vaccine developed in the meantime, but it’s still a worrying virus for the epidemiologists.

Project Restart has been going well, with few new cases amongst the players, although it’s weird to watch the games played in empty stadiums.

We are at Bournemouth on Wednesday night, and that’s another tough game for the club.

Maybe Andy can score in that game?

And it would be good to see Andy put in some good performances and remain fit through the final 7 games of the season.

How Will Newcastle Do At Bournemouth On Wednesday?

    Richard masters response when asked about the takeover:
    “I cannot comment on the timing and specifics of any takeover but in a perfect world takeovers would happen cleanly and in a timely fashion but sometimes things get complicated”

    Richard Masters copping out of answering the question again. We dont want a running commentary but at least one update on the process should be necessary. We obvs won’t get it from the grossly negligent FCB. Add the fact that apparently there is no timescale and we could be asking the same questions ad nauseum. It appears that everyone has forgotten what makes football and the premier league successful and that is us, the fans.

    It was the MP for Sunderland who asked the Q, not sure where Chi is or if she is involved.

    I suspect Chi’s keeping a low profile coz she may not be keen on Saudi involvement in NUFC.

    Yeah that speech she did in parliament a while back about the Saudis has come back to bite her a little bit. not that it was wrong to do but makes it awkward for her with Newcastle people who want the takeover to go ahead.

    Jib’s full of himself now that Kevin V’s making him look good.

    It was the same on the south coast when the eastern Europeans started appearing – they started to carry the can for crime etc and took the heat off the Scousers.

    Neutral should be good but there’s time yet. If not, the furniture’ll might have to be moved a dozen times so it ends up where it was in the first place. If not, you’ve got a wife in a million, bless her.

    The fun thing is, despite Masters’ comments, some on here will still stick to there being no evidence the takeover is real and with the PL at all… 🙂

    Just the fact that it has been mentioned in the meeting and masters answer citing nda’s etvc should prove to the doubter’s that its real.
    Even froggy might have to change his mind. 😉

    No chance it will change there minds. They will say it’s the normal answer for any takeover situation, declining to comment saying it’s a confidential process. Won’t make them believe anymore

    Scottish MP bamboozled Masters a bit there he’s just confirmed the government has not intervened with this specific takeover!!

    Also said he wants it to be resolved “shortly” (whatever that means!)

    He also said:

    “Beoutq is now off the air and what we want to do … is for Saudi Arabia is to respond positively to the situation and to allow sports rights holders to protect their rights”

    Saudi Arabia have already responded positively to the report! Approval very soon now surely!
