Carroll is going nowhere!
Carroll is going nowhere!
Speculation circulated over the weekend regarding the future of Andy Carroll amid reported interest that Chelsea were preparing a bid in the region of £20 million for the Gateshead-born striker.

With no quotes or sources to back it up, I pretty much disregarded as utter rubbish, but now Chris Hughton has had his say and put the rumour to bed for good.

Carroll’s stock on the football pitch is rising rapidly and it is expected that he will get a call-up to the next England squad when it is announced later on in the week. Whether it is too early or not for the player is a separate issue really, all he can do is try his best, but it does mean that his star will be burning that little bit brighter, which perhaps inevitably will draw some interest from some of the ‘big-boys’.

“He’s not for sale and we don’t worry about that,” Hughton told The Guardian. (more…)

Stoke maintain Carroll interest.

Carroll: Linked with a move away, again.

Steven Taylor isn’t the only Newcastle player that appears to be constantly linked with a move away from Newcastle.

Now Andy Carroll looks like he is being placed firmly in that bracket by the press as yet more rumours of a move away from Newcastle surface.

Which is understandable as a player with the potential that Andy Carroll displayed last season will sort of always be in demand. We have heard of links of a move to Blackburn, Bolton, Chelsea and Stoke, all of which have been soundly blown out of the water by the player himself who has come out to the press and admitted previously that he has everything he could dream of whilst playing for his boyhood team, whilst also not forgetting our manger who has said he has no intention of letting Carroll leave.

News yesterday of a bid for one of our young, local lads – Andy Carroll – from Bolton Wanderers as their new manager Owen Coyle seeks to add numbers to squad in a bid to stave off relegation. A cheeky £2 million bid has said to have been lodged.

Andy Carroll has been an important player for us this season so far. Whilst he hasn’t exactly been prolific in front of goal, he has had the knack of unsettling the opposition defenders, perhaps allowing other players scoring opportunities by creating space, like for Lovenkrands on Wenesday evening.

With 4 goals in 18 appearances this season, Carroll is far from the finished article and has attracted his fair share of criticism from fans for an alleged altercation on a night out in Newcastle’s Blu Bamboo bar in the Bigg Market – a hotbead of chavs, slappers and sexually transmitted diseases – and that’s on top of another transgression a while back! I personally feel that if he can knuckle down and work on the mental aspect of his game off the pitch, and learn some composure in front of goal on the pitch, then we are better off keeping hold of him. Manager Chris Hughton seems to be thinking along the same lines, saying:

“They are wasting their time with Andy – He is not for sale!” (more…)
