Andy Carroll - released


Recommended Posts

It's a 1 year extension for a backup player, until the takeover goes through officially we've still got to function (if we ever have under Ashley) as a club. We're hardly going to ship everybody out and a whole new squad in should we get taken over. It'll have no baring what is happening takeover wise.

Should never have left to join Liverpool. Was genuinely gutted when he did and with hindsight he'd have had such a better playing career staying here. Was a quality player then and caused problems for just about every defender we played against. 

Weird that for a player that never relied on pace and just had pure strength and aerial power his career went downhill so fast. Unfortunately that was all the injury problems though and not his own game style. 

I seem to recall reading an article where Carroll said he didn't want to leave and wasn't given a choice in the matter!

Will never believe that in the era of player power.  No way can you be forced to leave.

even after all this time you believe what Ashley says. he puts those messages out so he doesn't have to spend in his mind. when it ll falls through he will claim it wasn't his fault and still won't spend by the way. all players are employees in his mind. 

No, i didn't believe them at the weekend, that's the point. Plenty were happy to though.

It’s just a checkbox exercise at this point, having Gayle and Carroll means two strikers we don’t have to find and pay for. Whether they’re good or not isn’t relevant.

 

Whatever saves money and reduces the effort we have to put in is what we’ll do.

No point having a backup that's never available as a backup...

 

Might as well have a flat spare tyre for when you get a puncture

Good lad is Andy. Proper Geordie as well. He's the sort of character you need when you're down there in the trenches on a Tuesday night fighting the sovereign wealth of Brentford.

I seem to recall he was injured when we sold him, and seemingly he never got over it as he kept getting injured over and over again. We probably sold at the absolute best time we could have.

Got to wonder if he's fundamentally suited to being a footballer, as all have his injuries have never been major (correct me if wrong), but it looks like most of them have been little niggly things that most players get occasionally, but not consistently.

 

Would it be a push to say that he makes Michael Owen look not injury prone...

 

A quick look at TransferMarket shows Carrols missed almost 6 years potential game time since his debut. Time to accept and give up

As i recall, when he heard about Liverpools bid he almost immediately demanded a massive new contract despite only getting one a few months earlier, and only left when it was refused
