if carrol comes back shola,s for sale with safc going to bid 2.5 million..............

Believable2 Unbelievable11

Will he become a Geordie Slayer then? No Chance mate!

Agree8 Disagree0

The makem slayer would never play for Sunderland

Agree8 Disagree3

He'll never leave and we wont sell him he's a massive personality within our team and we need players like him and harper respectively and we have enough games to have 4 strikers easily, and shola to sunderland never he hates the mackems

Agree6 Disagree3

Don't think we should spend 20 million on Carrol, 15 maybe but 20 isn't worth it.
We could use that money a lot better to strengthen the squad.
As for Shola to Sunderland never going to happen

Agree4 Disagree2

Am pretty sure it says they will bid for him does not say he will the post.....

Agree1 Disagree2

We won't sell Shola. So back to the drawing board for you, mackem

Agree1 Disagree1

Am pretty sure they are saying ok..... But he wont go.... Read the replies... Douche

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Million is a joke, So is 15 million. I would love to see the big guy back but he has scored 6 premier league goals in a season and a half. I am sorry but a player that scores 6 goals in that time frame is not worth more than 10 million even by todays standards and fees.

This is one time i have faith in Ashely, He wants to bring Carroll home for the fans but we all know you cannot bluf a bluffer, Liverpool would lose this one badly if they ask too much. They can keep him until Xmas with him sitting every game on the bench and then we will have him for a snip, We are in charge and being more than fair with the price.

Agree5 Disagree1

Id love to see Carroll back as I think on his day he is unplayable but would'nt pay more than 10-12 million

Agree3 Disagree2

You dont have a clue pal think about it if u dont put the money up he will go else were tottenham are after him chelsea and a.c milan so if u think u can get im on the cheap think again

Agree1 Disagree6

Never got the Andy Carroll thing, he had a reasonable season in the championship but still scored less than 20 goals, fair play he works his socks off and is keen but he's nothing like a world class player, 35mill, what was that about?

Agree5 Disagree2

Loving the sad scouser's and their bitter comments towards us.
Accept the fact we mugged you off for a way over inflated price and while your at it stop deluding yourselves that he is wanted by Chelsea ( going for Cavani ) or Tottenham ( permanent deal for Adebayor ). AC Milan will get Tevez not Carrol. You will be lucky to get 15 million and I'd prefer not to have him back

Agree3 Disagree2

Aye, I'd like to see him come back though, with the right nurturing he'd be class, can't see him getting on ahead of Ba or Cisse though, we do need another striker or 2 though.

Agree1 Disagree0

spoke to one of my very good friends on coaching staff last night on phone who is currently in germany with squad he says newcastle are really upping there attempts to sign andy carroll on permanent deal it all hinges on liverpool and how much they want to re coup but 13.5 million has been bid he also says andy wants to come back home no chance of him going anywhere else but to us and a clue who my source is he worked under sir bobby and loves craig bellamy!!

Believable4 Unbelievable12

Alan shearer lol

Our bid for Andy Carroll is completely tactical and calculated.

We had approx £13m to spend on a striker - as demonstrated by our last bid for De Jong. So thats the ballpark for our Carroll bid limit.

If as reported, we have bid £13.5m for Carroll, any rival bid would have to exceed £17m just to match our bid in terms of revenue to Liverpool - due to 25% sell on clause.

So...we can't lose - either we get Carroll for £13.5m or we pick up nearly £5m from the clause if we get out bid by a club willing to pay ~£18m or more.

If that happens, we have our original £13.5m + £4-5m extra to spend on a top player or two.

Happy days!


Believable10 Unbelievable7

There is no sell on clause though, so what other rubbish are you going to come out with ?

Agree2 Disagree8

We offered to pay half his waged then buy him for 12 million they refused that and who would blame him...but i was told today they where going to offer 13 million and wave the sell on claus not sure how true it is but the person who had told me had also said he had been told nufc value carrol at 17 million but are not prepared to go over 15 million full fee paid up in full where no one else does this except chelski and city....all we can do his wait and see........k

Agree3 Disagree1

If we're going for top 5 13million for a striker just isn't enough but this is very true.

Agree1 Disagree7

Now THAT'S magic! (and very cunning)

Agree1 Disagree0

You don't have to spend massive amounts of money to get into the top 5. Ba+Cisse was less than 15 mil. Chelski and the scouse b******s spent a lot more than us on just one player each and look where they ended up on relation to us!!

Agree5 Disagree3

Why would any club agree to a sell on clause when they have just spent 35 m ? Think 35 was prob 20m to much ! Sell on usually are implemented if original price is slightly lower than the selling clubs valuation .

Agree2 Disagree3

Even if there was a sell on claus it would only be a % of any profit made. So unless Liverpool sell for over 35mill then it's sweet FA

Agree1 Disagree1

If you where told 2 years ago you would get 35 million for carrol in cash you would of laughed do not be surprised if ashley had a sell on claus no matter what he sells for............k

Agree0 Disagree1

Walcott and Ben afer to swap clubs. In the next 48 hrs

Believable3 Unbelievable20

HAHA your a fool, this will NEVER happen

Agree14 Disagree2

Claptrap ,Liverpool want him.

Agree2 Disagree5


Agree10 Disagree1

That would be ok i suppose would rather have ben arfa though keep the french connection going

Agree2 Disagree3

Ben Arfa is so much better than Walcott, the ONLY aspect that Walcott is better is pace.

Agree7 Disagree3

What makes ya think toon will give him 100k a week. thats why he is arguing at arsenal..

Agree9 Disagree0

Biggest load of bull so far.
Walcott would be a good signing, but I'd rather have the better player, Ben Arfa.

Agree9 Disagree0

Another mackem speaking through his bum

Andy Carroll not on plane to liverpools trip to USA, not saying he's on his way to Newcastle but that it is more likely.

Believable11 Unbelievable4

Its official he is not in brendon rogers plans..........k

Agree5 Disagree3

Hes not back at lfc until 23rd July I beleive as hes on an extended break with the others that attended euros. They are due to fly out and join rest of squad when they get back

Agree6 Disagree3

Rumour has it newcastle has steped up there bid to 13 mill, will most proberbly go for more like 17 mill according to newcastle blog and bbc sport transfers.

Agree8 Disagree2

Liverpool need to sell a lot more than we need to buy, should give them a take it or leave it or a loan with option to buy or just smack 10 mill on the table

Agree0 Disagree5

Neither has Gerrard,Kelly,Henderson,Downing,Johnson,Suarez,Coates,Doni,Reina or Suarez.

I wouldn't read to much into to be honest.

Why do Liverpool need to sell? Are they skint, i wouldn't have thought so.

Agree7 Disagree3

Either way nufc have a sell on clause for any fee if carrol is sold so the advantage of us buying him is we will waver the 25% seel on fee and there aint many clubs in epl who have that kind of money just 3 or 4............k

Agree2 Disagree5

They need to sell him rather than pay his wages on the bench that does not mean they are skint..............not in his plans that simple...

Agree1 Disagree2

I don't know where you're getting that sell on clause from. Complete lie.

Agree3 Disagree3

There is no sell on clause.

Agree3 Disagree3

Im the guy that put they need to sell more than we need to buy, let me just clarify.
I mean we dont neef to buy carroll we have tonnes of option with over 10 mill for a striker. Liverpool 'need' to sell because whats the point in keeping a 10illion + asset on thr bench.
Hope that makes more sence

Agree1 Disagree3

I think Liverpool are skint! Crowds aren't huge mid table finish paying high wages spending on Henderson, downing, Carroll, ok they sold Torres might not have all the cash yet. Plus they've had to pay off Hodgson and Daglish

Agree2 Disagree2

I dont think they are skint but with there owners letting daglish loose with 100 million to pay over inflated prices for players and think they realised you can not keep doing this with all these new fair play rules coming in....a club now needs to make more than it spends and then theres no champions league for lfc either....think rogers is out of his depth but time will tell.......

Agree1 Disagree2

Despite the lack of champions league football and a tiny stadium Liverpool's international TV rights are a massive part of their revenue. I don't know for sure but I would assume they compensate for the smaller ground by having a massive international following from America to the far east.

Agree0 Disagree0

Confirmed that andy carrol only interested in a loan and not a full time move! Sky sports news website!

Believable4 Unbelievable10

I'd prefer a loan with a set fee at the end tbh.
That way we get an idea if he is here to play football and show the scousers what they were missing, OR, if he is just here for nights out on the toon.
Nee chance that is going to happen but that's not to say we won't go back in with a cash offer for a permanent transfer.

Agree3 Disagree5

There is no way that Liverpool are going to loan Carroll to anyone.

Agree11 Disagree2

Think you'll find that yes there is a sell on clause unless you've been living under a rock

Agree0 Disagree0

Toon have offered £13.5 million for AC.
Debuchy deal to go through today for £7 million

Believable9 Unbelievable4

13.5 Million is a bit steep considering he will probably be expecting atleast the same wages as he gets at Liverpool which is supposed to be 80k a week. He has just had a bad season at a club that came 7th, Liverpool need to get past the illusion of what he once cost and get to grips with the reality of what he is worth right now.

Agree3 Disagree5

13.5 million too steep ? He's worth about 17m-20 m. He's much better than Demba Ba who is awful.

Agree6 Disagree15

Surely one of the reasons Liverpool had a bad season was Carroll's bad form. Plus, he's only ever had one good season before the 'one bad season'. You seem very sure he will turn things around, all things considered.

Agree4 Disagree4

What planet is the guy living on who said Demba Ba is awful?
Fair does he didn't net for the last few months of the season but he played his part OUT OF POSITION and without that set up Cisse might not have been so prolific.
Maybe a wet spam supporter who had hopes of getting Carrol just to be gutted to see another of 'your' strikers end up at the toon.

Agree7 Disagree2

If the choice was Carroll or Ba, only an person would choose Ba. Carroll is much better and younger.

Agree5 Disagree10

Can't see us paying the wages regardless of the transfer fee. It would unsettle many of the starters. Is it possible it is just a ploy to get Ba tied down?

Agree3 Disagree1

Would rather have
AC because if you ask me he is 10x better than ba

Agree4 Disagree9

You have to think of legal reasons. All pardew can do for Ba's contract is negotiate with him what contract he'll give Ba when his release clause ends at July 31st that's when we can tie Ba down. Plus Demba is much better than AC that fat Sh**. Ba is more of a complete striker. If u ask me, Cisse would of not scored as many goals if Ba wasn't there, Demba Ba had to help Cisse settle, by translating and playing out of position for the team

Agree1 Disagree0

Andy Carroll flew from Gatwick to Milan last week (think it was monday).

Believable1 Unbelievable8

Like someone said a few days ago...more chance him signing for AC/DC than AC Milan.

Agree7 Disagree4

Ed, do you know what the latest on Debuchy is, a havnt heard out {Ed026's Note - Debuchy has apparently flown into Newcastle today and a fee as been agreed circa £7m. Perhaps some news later today..

Believable9 Unbelievable1

Debuchy is still on holiday, and the clubs have not agreed a fee. Yet more rubbish on this site! {Ed026's Note - And how do you know he's still on holiday? This is a rumours site after all and there are strong rumours from a number of sources that he's flown into Newcastle today, not saying this is 100% true but that's the word. A number of papers have also printed that a 7m fee has been agreed, which would seem about right for a player of his calibre.

Agree7 Disagree3

16 Jul 2012 10:56:28
nufc to make a cash bid for andy carrol today any where between £12 to £15 million and as allways pay all fees up front.....good news is if any one else bids for him and he goes there we get 25% sell on clause......edd have you heard any think like this......... {Ed026's Note - Last I heard there was a loan and option to buy offer turned down which was for £12m

Believable7 Unbelievable2

Thats what i heard edd so there must be a little truth in it some where cheers.......

Agree2 Disagree1

I wonder if the Toon are really serious about Andy Carroll. If they have a sell on clause agreed with Liverpool, it may be in their interest to drive the price up. They may have started this process by lodging the first bid, hoping others follow
with higher bids. Just a thought!

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Jul 2012 22:21:09
Arsenal set to re-ignite interest in Ben arfa, champions league football may well be the decider, your thoughts Ed? {Ed026's Note -A non starter for me.

Believable2 Unbelievable7

Ben arfa must be worth 12 to 15 million.....arsenal dont spend that kind of money so its a non starter for me to

Agree4 Disagree1

Ben Arfa worth 12-15 million, no chance. More like 7-9 million.

Agree5 Disagree11

Must be SMB to quote these prices..... He improved his work rate for the team towards the end of last year, and his runs which had defenders all in a daze were outstanding.... Double the 15m price, then you may be closer

Agree7 Disagree2

16 Jul 2012 07:42:38
Odds for Carroll to join NUFC still very low

Believable8 Unbelievable3
