Graham Carr “We are going to try and get close to the Arsenal route but you have to be realistic. They had Vieira, Henry and Petit, some of the best players in the world. At Newcastle that is not the case…yet”.
It wouldn’t surprise me in the least to one day see Carroll back at Newcastle, I don’t see any long-term future at Liverpool and apart from possibly Tottenham I can’t see any of the other teams at the top considering him. There would of course be the small matter of his wages to sort out…
Peter Beardsley, “The great thing is, he (Graham Carr) is from Newcastle originally, so he knows what is expected, he knows what the Geordies want to see on the field. When you look at Cisse’s strike on his debut, I think there might be a few more there”.
Mike Ashley has stabilised Newcastle United (his business/asset!!) and reduced the club’s (his!) debts by using his own money from elsewhere. Just don’t tell me Mike Ashley is doing what he is doing for me or you!
