Andy Carroll is now looking for a new club this upcoming transfer window.

The striker was sent home from training on Monday after a clash with manager David Moyes, according to widespread media reporting.

West Ham were hammered 4-1 at home by Manchester City on Sunday and the former Newcastle striker headed back to the changing rooms, once the three Hammers substitutions had been made.

The West Ham boss clearly not happy with the perceived lack of team/squad spirit.

The lack of effort was embarrassing enough on the pitch, without Moyes then seeing Andy Carroll presumably going off in the huff because he hadn’t been brought on.

The reports say that David Moyes then wanted to discuss the matter at the club’s Rush Green training ground, only for it to end in an argument and the player sent home.

It is expected that Andy Carroll will be fined the maximum two weeks wages and it remains to be seen whether he’s included in West Ham’s matchday squad, never mind team, for their final three games of the season.

With only a year left on his contract and set to turn 30 in January, speculation has now ramped up about his future, with media claims the striker could be on his way back to Newcastle.

Newcastle fans will be experiencing serious feelings of deja vu, as this story has been run pretty much every transfer window since he left St James Park in a helicopter back in January 2011.

Liverpool paid £35m back then, before recouping around £17m from West Ham in Summer 2013.

What he is ‘worth’ now is anybody’ guess.

Amazingly, in the seven and a half years since he left Newcastle, Andy Carroll has failed to get double figures in a Premier League season for any other club.

Back in 2010/11, Carroll scored 11 goals in 18 PL starts (plus one off the bench) for Newcastle.

Then only twice since leaving Newcastle has the forward managed to start more than 15 league games in a season, starting only 59 Premier League games in the five years since making his move to West Ham permanent.

You can never say never about anything but you would be amazed if Rafa Benitez had even the remotest interest in Andy Carroll, particularly with the massive wages that would be expected to be at least matched.

    Only way I would consider it if it was pay per play but even then at £90 grand a week it would be impossible. He was a class act for us up to his sale though.

  • Weyhhadaway

    We would like to politely decline your offer Mr Moyes. Although we think the offer of a 250 quid voucher for an “adult apparatus store” and some sort of swing did smack of desperation.

    • Rich Lawson

      Breaking news, Ashley to buy Karen Brady a curry.

      • MichaelMaximusMoose

        She hate`s the Obese one, would be an interesting meeting

      • Peaky


  • Rich Lawson

    His ”social” life seems to mean he is always blighted by injury or trouble. If he could stay fit,great,but I think his best days are past even at 29.

    • Jezza

      I was devastated when the club sold him but in the intervening years it has to be said that he hasn’t fulfilled his enormous potential. When he joined Liverpool I thought one of two things was going to happen, either he would become an Anfield legend or he’d move to Real Madrid for £100 million a couple of years later. At the time he looked a good enough player for either of those scenarios to come true but it just didn’t work out that way. There is no dobut that injuries have blighted his career but as you say maybe his lifestyle has also been a big factor. I’d still have him back though but!

      • Dillon Tovak

        I think those 2 scenarios are one and the same. Liverpool lose all their “legends” to the 2 Spanish big boys.

        • Jezza

          Yes but Andy Carroll wasn’t one of them when he probably could have been.

          • Dillon Tovak

            Yes indeedy.
            What I meant though was if he did gain the legendary status, he’d be off anyway.

  • MichaelMaximusMoose

    If he`s for nowt take him, put him in a Black & White shirt again and we`d get 2 years out of him

    • ghostrider

      Yep, I’d take him for nothing or a minimal fee on a pay as you play contract or a massively reduced contract, only made up into a larger wage due to wins and goal returns from him.
      The stipulations in his contract would be off the scale and he can like it or lump it.
      If I was manager or owner, of course.

      • mentalman

        He’s made a lot of money so he may well be up for it to end his career at his childhood club

        • ghostrider

          He doesn’t appear to be very loyal as to his roots.
          The dream of the number 9 with the world at your feet. How many kids ever grow up to actually get that chance….and he walked away from it after just signing a new contract.

    • Albert Stubbins

      Or approximately twenty games whichever way you look at it.

  • Paul Patterson

    Fee too high, wages too high, too many injuries, too different to our system, next .

    • MichaelMaximusMoose

      list all the krap we have, then count how much it`s cost Nufc per week & you`ll find any Salary for Andy will be peanuts.

      • Paul Patterson

        I take your point on that side of it, but you need to build a reliable side. You don’t want a striker that’s in and out of the side.

  • mentalman

    There was a story going around before he left that he fell off a bar stool in a club on the Bigg Market and the club doctor had said at the time that it was a career ending injury, looks like it was more of a career defining injury rather than one to end it but injuries have definitely ruined what could have been a career to make him one of England’s stand out strikers.

    • Albert Stubbins

      Heard from a taxi driver? Must have been some stool that mind.

  • MichaelMaximusMoose

    Look what we`re paying for nought, Haidara, Gamez, the Hoss, Colback, Mbemba
    Manquillo, the list is endless.

  • Oval85

    I would take him… Just to stop the rumour.

    • mactoon


  • robbersdog

    I really rate him, and it’s such a pity that his career has basically been ruined by injuries. Daniel Sturridge is the same. There’s no point in signing players like this; they command huge salaries but spend most of the time in the treatment room.

    • TheNutJob

      or in Andy`s case the BCM in Magaluf

  • Slim_Newcastle

    Why would he rate Carrol and not Mitrovic. Add in the cost of his wages/injury record and the fact Rafas not even going to be here in a few months and it’s even less unlikely.

    • TheNutJob

      Big Andy`s top class problem is injuries

  • Dillon Tovak

    Carroll for no more than £7m, bring back Mitro. Then spend a fortune on a real striker, a nippy finisher, then we’ll actually have a strike force.
    In reality we’ll just extend Joselu’s contract.

    • Jezza

      To be fair we will have Adam Armstrong back from loan and he the proverbial “just like a new signing”.

      • Dillon Tovak

        That’ll be about right 🤦‍♂️ Nothing spent and rely on someone unproven.

      • Albert Stubbins

        Armstrong is miles away from premiership standard n my opinion mate. You could still be right though.

        • Jezza

          I was being ironic but maybe that didn’t come across in the comment. You are right about Armstrong not being ready for the Premiership but he is the only “new” striker we’re likely to see this summer.

  • Toon

    On his day, great but sadly he plays about 10 games a season and costs a fortune

    • Foggy

      Just scoring the odd good goal doesn’t make a great day. It’s a long time since he was even an average striker. No thanks Andy looks like a promoted team or the Championship for you.

      • Jezza

        There is absolutely no doubt over Andy Carroll’s quality. He is far better than “an average striker” and light years ahead of anybody we’ve currently got on our books. The only problem is that he misses so many games through injury.

        • Foggy.

          He was. He isn’t now.

  • Tino o

    Sorry Andy that ship has sailed and to think you could have won another championship champions medal

  • HarryHype59

    Andy Carroll….no chance!

  • Albert Stubbins

    I think a swap deal involving shelvey will be on the table. Interesting dilemma if this proves to be the case. What would you do?

  • Mike

    A crock and a hothead no thanx
