      Way too many people being pricks about this signing on twitter and the like, saying it's a waste of money, and the owners are idiots for spending so much.

      So basically - old owners are idiots for not spending, new owners are idiots for spending too much.

      :roll:

      Anyways, welcome Andy! I have faith in ya, big price tag but lets just forget that and let the actions on the pitch do the talking :)

      Hence 6foot 3 in my little song Dex ;D :P

      We signed him for a record fee, Andy, Andy
      The guy is f**king 6 foot 3, Andy, Andy
      At LFC he'll shoot to fame,
      Replaced a guy what the f**k was his name?
      ANDY CARROLL LIVERPOOL'S NUMBER 9!!

      Love it! :D

      Well buddy, we learned plenty about twitter during this window, garbage in garbage out. I don't care what anyone outside the club has to say, all I care about is what we say and what Kenny says everyone else can bugger off.

      In relation to the 'he didn't want to leave' stuff, that may be true but he'll realise we can take him further than Newcastle ever could.

      Also these texts could also just be a way of trying to make sure his reputation is not damaged in the eyes of the Newcastle fans so he is making out he was forced and didn't hand in a transfer request.

      P.S. F***ing sick of 'neutral' fans whinging about this transfer already.  >:D

      He probably was.

      And hes happy to be here but he is letting the Geordies know he still loves them and would love to have stayed.

      Newcastle could not reject £35million.

      We didnt hear Torres mention his adoring fans in his Chelsea interview.

      Carroll facing up to a month more on sidelines

      9:20am Thursday 27th January 2011

      http://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/sport/football/newcastle/8816199.Carroll_facing_up_to_a_month_more_on_sidelines/

      NEWCASTLE striker Andy Carroll is set to be sidelined for at least another month after suffering a setback in his recovery from a thigh injury.

      Carroll will visit a tendon repair specialist in Sweden tomorrow after he was unable to take part in running sessions during this week's training camp in Portugal.

      Magpies manager Alan Pardew has been hit with a double injury blow, as Dan Gosling is facing further knee surgery that will also rule him out of action for the next four weeks.

      However, it is the setback to Carroll's recovery that is causing the greatest concern among Newcastle's medical staff, with the England international already having missed the club's last five matches.

      Carroll injured his thigh in December's defeat at Tottenham, but it was originally hoped a period of rest and recuperation would solve the problem.

      When that did not happen, the 22-year-old was instructed to travel to Portugal with the rest of the Magpies squad this week, in the hope that a spell of intensive treatment would hasten his recovery.

      That has not happened either, and with Carroll still reporting considerable pain in his thigh, Pardew has decided seek the advice of one of the world's leading tendon specialists.

      As a result, the striker will miss next week's games against Fulham and Arsenal, and is also unlikely to feature in the home game with Blackburn that precedes a two-week break without a fixture.

      “We brought him out here (to Portugal) to start running, and the disappointing news is that he hasn't,” said Pardew.

      “His injury is in the muscle, just above the tendon where it joins the knee, so it's not an area that gets great circulation and therefore it doesn't heal quickly.

      “We have had a consultation this week about sending him to someone who is the world's best tendon repair expert – there are experts in different fields – and this guy is at the Arctic end of Sweden.

      “He's flying out there on Friday and we're hoping that we can turn him around quickly. But now I have to say that Fulham is definitely out and possibly even Arsenal. We can't rush him back.”

      Carroll's absence has reduced Newcastle's attacking options markedly, but even with his leading goalscorer set to spend another month on the sidelines, Pardew is reluctant to spend significant resources on signing another striker ahead of Monday's transfer deadline.

      “We have to pay tribute to Shola (Ameobi), Leon (Best), Nile (Ranger) and Peter (Lovenkrands),” said Pardew.

      “They've all played a part in great performances, if not always the results we've wanted. They've all pitched in and done a great job, so you have to say we haven't missed him as much as we all feared, including myself.”

      To make matters worse, Gosling now faces another extended spell on the sidelines after suffering a partial recurrence of the knee injury that prevented him from featuring at all in the first half of the season.

      The midfielder, who was a summer signing from Everton, arrived at St James' Park midway through his recovery from a cruciate knee ligament injury.

      He made his Magpies debut as a second-half substitute in this month's 1-1 draw with Sunderland, but has been complaining of continued swelling in his knee.

      That swelling suggests there could still be a cartilage issue that needs addressing, and Pardew is resigned to sanctioning another bout of surgery.

      “It's such a shame because our medical team worked really hard with him,” he said, during an interview with BBC Radio Newcastle. “He had the operation at Everton, so they weren't party to what went on, and what they've inherited was what looked like a slight problem in that knee.

      “Anyway, we've brought him back and in all this time there was a slight swelling that wouldn't go away. The surgeon suggested we carried on the treatment and now we think we need to perhaps have a look in this knee, that there might be something floating around, that there might be some cartilage that needs trimming.

      “If you've got swelling, it's not right. Unfortunately for Dan, he's going to have to be patient, and we are too because we all got excited when we thought he was ready to come back. The case is that he's going to be missing for another three or four weeks.”

      Pardew is due to return to England later today, and with no weekend game to work towards, the Magpies manager will devote the majority of his attention to the transfer market.

      Stephen Ireland remains the club's leading target ahead of Monday night's deadline, but with Aston Villa still refusing to contribute to the midfielder's £72,000-a-week wages, Pardew expects negotiations to go to the wire.

      “That seems to be the way things are this month,” he said. “All clubs are waiting to see what happens and I think you'll probably see a few things happening in the final day of the window.

      “Everyone's trying to get the best deals they can. Things are changing all the time – only today I've had agents on to talk about players where other deals have fallen through – so I think you'll see activity right the way through to Monday's deadline.”
      F**k... really hope it's not true.

      We signed the lad from Newcastle, Carroll, Carroll.
      He was a Geordie but now he's Scouse, Carrol, Carroll.
      He's big, he's red, he's 22,
      He'll score past them, he'll score past you
      Who needs Torres when we've got Andy C.

      Oh i know mate, was just making mention of the opinions of regular folk on there and how fickle minded some are.

      I for one am excited. I like the idea of an English lad playing up front again, hoping he can deliver the goods!

      Best of luck, Andy!

      Shame we won't see him play sooner, but it will be a nice change to see a strong fella upfront, and who can play.

      We needed a new dimension in attack, and when he's back it'll be nice to see two up top with Suarez.

      The owners are fulfilling their promises in signing young talent, good stuff.

      Absolutely love his work ethic. He's going to be a breath of fresh air. No more wondering if our Number 9 is up for it today or not. Andy always puts a shift in.

      He's quite good with the ball on the deck as well, he's going to be a very good goal scorer for us.

      I've had a couple of drinks tonight so forgive me if this is some kind of joke but is that actually what Carroll has said? He signs for Liverpool and the first thing he has to say is.. I've been forced out? If it's true I know he hasn't had time to make a real statement and he did hand in a transfer request but that would be the worst introduction to joining us I've ever seen.

      I must agree I have watched him at Newcastle get right back and defend when his team needed it, he's not lazy, I think he will be a great signing f**k I just hope he delivers for us.

      I just watched highlights of our match against them last month, forgot about that hammer of a goal he scored. Shows he has some tremendous power in his peg, as well as his obvious ability in the air.

      I'm quietly confident he's gonna do alright.
