Get Out of Toon – Andy Carroll was forced out

With the prospect of losing Fernando Torres very much a reality for Liverpool football club last night, it seems that they were taking their actions stations as they looked to find a suitable replacement and with a proposed £50m in their pocket from the possible sale of their star striker, the world was their supermarket.

After an extensive search for suitable frontmen that would be able to shoulder the void which would be left by the loss of Torres, the club decided that the potential and class of Newcastle United striker  Carroll was enough to force them to part company with Torres and £35m of the money that they would receive as part of the deal.

As the story broke about a £30m bid that had been placed by Liverpool and rejected by Newcastle, the football community in the north really began to come alive, fans saying that Carroll would never leave his beloved Newcastle United, a thought which seemed to be shared by the player too.

Only hours after the news that the club had rejected the £30m offer from Liverpool with a strict message that Carroll was not for sale, it was reported that Liverpool had increased their offer to £35m and Newcastle had accepted it.

Still unsure about whether he could leave his boyhood club, Carroll seemed to be uncertain of his future, that was until news broke that he had handed in a transfer request to force the move.

The story didn’t ring right for many Newcastle fans, especially as the striker had only just signed a new 5 year deal with the club but it was confirmed that there was a request made.

With that news, the fans turned their back on what was one of the biggest fan favourites at the club, saying that they had lost all respect for the player after he handed in that request, but today it seems that there is more to the story.

While the contract negotiations were underway, Carroll had taken the time to send text messages to a friend of his, the editor of the Toon Talk fanzine, saying that the club were forcing him out of the club in order to bank the money.

“They have kind of said we don’t want u, but want me to say I wanna go. And I said I don’t wanna go.”

 “Gutted to be leaving my home club but I was practically told to go. Don’t want to leave. That’s why I signed five-year deal.”

The allegations ring right with many after Newcastle seemed to pick up the title of being a ‘selling club’, a club that prefers to sell its home grown talents rather than to retain them in order to bank the profits.

The claims that Andy Carroll was forced out of the club have today been dismissed by Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew but history has it that it is more likely that they are trying to keep the fans on side rather than suffer the backlash for lining their pockets.

On the other side of the coin im sure he is very happy to be a Liverpool player at the end of the day.

“When I knew Liverpool’s interest was real and that there was a chance for me to come here I knew it was a great opportunity and I had to take it,”

“Liverpool is a big club which is going places and this is a chance to show what I can do. What I did at Newcastle has got me here and now I have to carry it on with Liverpool.

“They have spent a lot of money on getting me here and I just want to repay them for what they have spent. I want to win trophies with this club and help push us forward.”
