Carroll is going nowhere.
Carroll is going nowhere.
I see the Sunday papers are reporting en masse that Tottenham Hotspur are set to launch a January bid for Andy Carroll.

There are even reports suggesting that David Bentley and Peter Crouch could be used as makeweights in any potential new deal.

It’s all bollocks of course and is just the latest in a long line of clubs that Carroll has been linked to, including teams that are infinately bigger that Spurs, like Chelsea for example. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I have some for all of those dirty journalists out there – Andy Carroll is going nowhere!

You see, there has been no mention of anything about Carroll leaving around these parts, other than what has been written in the newspapers – quite the opposite in fact. I suggest that these journalists get their collective head out of the arse of the bigger clubs, give their tongue a rest, and do some investigating. (more…)

Carroll: “This is the club and the city for me, and always will be.”

Andy Carroll has made quite a name for himself already this season.

He caught the eye with a fantastic season in The Championship last season, bagging an impressive 19 goals.

However, the Premier League is a different kettle of fish with tougher opposition.

It seems that Andy’s great form has caught the attention not only of the England manager, Fabio Capello. but also of other top flight teams. (more…)
