Carroll comeback date

Andy-Carroll-1200Andy Carroll is having a good week – first the announcement that he has a new baby son and now a statement on his fitness which sounds very encouraging.

However, ClaretandHugh has learned that although the striker is getting stronger, he is unlikely to be ready for the first rounds of the Uefa Cup qualifiers.

He has been out of action with a knee injury since the match against  Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium back in February but said on the official site: ”

The injury is going well and I have pretty much been in every day working on it and strengthening the injury. I started jogging and it is all getting better.

 “I have been in the gym a long time now and it is nice to be outside going for a jog and it felt great afterwards. Hopefully I can be back out there.

However, a source told us:”He’s doing well but the qualifiers may come too early. We’re more likely to see him for the start of the Premier League season.”

  1. With those dates mentioned it looks like he won’t be getting sold,he wouldn’t pass a medical. So I hope his recovery is successful this time and he can be of more use this season.

  2. I’m seeing double!

  3. Dont even get any excitement about AC being back to fitness.It is just a date when he can play again till his next injury,lol 😉

  4. Is there a law or rule to stop you sending out a player to play in bubble wrap!! Send him out head to toe wrapped in the stuff!!

  5. Lol I’m really excited about this news… And I’m really happy about this picture: Andy with his big brother Kev… But I don’t see their dad Sam. Maybe he went to buy a bag of sweets… 😉

  6. Ahahahah…
