Gold: AC can have a big season

gold9David Gold has made it clear that Andy Carroll will be going nowhere this summer as newly appointed Newcastle boss Steve McLaren casts his eyes towards Upton Park.

Carroll has long been linked with a move back to Tyneside but the co chairman talking to ClaretandHugh said: “We are not allowing Andy to go anywhere.

“There have been a lot of suggestions that he would like a move ‘home’ but Andy is now very happy and settled in London. He will be here next season.”

McClaren – as reported by The Times – is apparently keen to hatch a loan deal Β which will see the Geordie striker return to St James’ Park for a season.

But Gold said: “He’s our record signing and the best is yet to come from him. It could be a very big season for him and us.”

  1. At this moment I’m sure DG means what he says but if Slav doesn’t fancy AC and the right offer comes in,we’ll take it. A lot of twists and turns until the window shuts.

  2. He said exactly the same last summer before AC got injured.Then again when Carroll came back in oct/nov,whenever it was.Then again later in the season.Only difference is the fact that this time he hasnt mentioned that Carrolls injuries are all behind him.Thats his usual other part to this on running saga πŸ˜‰

  3. I think unless Newcastle offer every penny we paid DG Will try and give AC a least this year
    to prove himself and I don’t think AC wants to go back north or Mrs A C does not

    • Judging by her mates on telly I’m not so sure his missus would know what up north means lol

  4. DG should pre-record an interview on this matter.Then he could just send it out to the media everytime Mr.Crutch gets injured.Would save everybody time.Should hear it atleast three times next season πŸ˜€

  5. Quichdraw I am sure she has told him to go down south by now,
    Not sure she could do the winters up there though,and they have got the nipper to think about,he needs to learn English first,
    I would love to see A C for 1 season play proper football and go injury free,
    Once he learns to trap or chest a ball to hold it up he could become a footballer,

    • Haha I’m sure you’re right about heading south. She might want the kid to be bilingual English and Geordie.
      IF he could stay fit he could be an asset playing the ball on the floor to him might make a difference. I’m in between on him if the price is good for us then he can go but if he stays I hope he comes good.

      • I think DG is being astute.He says Carroll is not for sale and going nowhere and then if money comes for him Mr Crutch will go.Good name Baz. I’m surprised Matte hasn’t commented yet on his idol Carroll?

  6. I think Matte is a wise owl he pleaded the fifth earlier on Rav so maybe he’s doing the same AC

  7. Let’s face it, Andy Carroll has been an unmitigated disaster – the lad is his own worse enemy – he charges about like a headless Chicken and surprise, surprise he keeps getting injured.

    I’m torn between supporting him because he’s a genuine lad who tries his best and saying bugger this for a game of soldiers and casting him adrift for what we can get for him – at a tremendous loss!

    I think it’s time to bite the bullet and cast him adrift and take the Financial hit – it’ll be cheaper in the long run!

  8. Ahah… The wise owl has just finished a figa meeting with a sweet dove… She flew away πŸ˜€

  9. It’s good that DG has this sentiment and belief that AC will come good but it’s the same sentiment and belief we’ve had for the last 12 months. There’s no doubt there is ability but to justify the high wage against minimal game time is ludicrous,AC makes some great noises at the beginning of each season and within 6 weeks the injuries occur, Sacko proves that there are gems out there at the fraction of the cost of AC yes he’s good on his day but those days are few and far between ,if he stays fair enough if he goes not the biggest of losses

  10. If we can sign another forward I’d let him go, waste of wages, waste of Β£15m or whatever silly money it cost us. Remy/Gignac in – Carroll out. He’s not consistent enough and is a bit of a one trick pony to be fair, hope he proves me wrong but it’s been the same everywhere he’s played

  11. Wonder how many more times we will hear this trotted out by DG next season,lol.Hippos Marquee signing has been a nightmare.85k a week for a guy sat on his sweaty geordie ass for more than half the games each season.

  12. This will get as boring as Morrinson,Newcastle are trying to keep the fans happy and will not splash the cash so he will be staying,
    Hugh find out what’s happening with Nolan,O,Brien Jarvis and Magia that’s what most of us would like to know ask a inside source Please

  13. If Carroll plays more than 25 games this season i will be amazed! Sicknote will be injured again,if he plays more than 25 i will pickle my bolloxs!!!
