There has been a lot of talk about Alan Pardew wanting to keep Andy Carroll at Newcastle. My own thought is that it is only to increase the player’s value. I can’t see Carroll staying beyond the end of this month. His so called injury has taken far too long to heal, for what was originally calimed to be a knock. I won’t be surprised if Mike Ashley takes the £30 million for a guy, who cost him absolutly nothing. No businessman would turn down that kind of deal. After all, Ashley is not a sports enthusiast, he is a businessman.
