Newcastle Fans Vote For Ba Over Carroll

10 years ago

The majority of Newcastle fans would prefer it if Andy Carroll stayed at Liverpool, rather than giving the scousers Demba Ba plus cash to bring Carroll back to Tyneside.

In our exclusive poll we asked ‘Would A Swap Deal Of Ba Plus Cash For Carroll Be A Good Deal For NUFC?’ and over 62% of the thousands who responded said that they’d rather keep Demba Ba if it was a choice between the two.

Many also added the comment that maybe it should be Carroll plus cash rather than the other way round!

Since the news that Newcastle had made the approach to Liverpool, there has been a weak of claim and counter claim with everything still up in the air.

Only time will tell and outside factors will almost certainly come into play; what Rodgers tells Carroll of his plans for the new season, Ba & Cisse staying at Newcastle, United shifting attention elsewhere, other clubs showing interest in Carroll, the list is endless.

The story has inevitably attracted a wide range of comments with Carroll on the end of some stick.

The bottom line though is always whether this would be good for Newcastle United and the addition of Carroll could surely only be a good thing for the squad, though as our poll revealed, NOT at the expense of Demba Ba!
