Some footballers can really sicken me. Even more so than a bottle of cheeky Tequila.
I cannot believe the transfer of Andy Carroll from Newcastle United to Liverpool. It really confuses me.
The fee is as unreal as Pamela Anderson's bangers. Seriously do you think that Andy Carroll is worth the reported fee of £35m?!
Carroll is a good player, maybe worth a punt at £12-15m but not what Liverpool have paid for him.
This is a player with no Champions League experience, less than a years worth of Premier league experience and one England cap to his name.
If Carroll is worth that, then how much is Nicklas Bendtner, a player slated all the time, worth?
In my opinion the football world has gone ab-so-lutely ga ga. Lady Gaga has nothing on the money spent by these clubs.
Of course Andy Carroll is full of potential, potential being the key word here, and the fee Liverpool paid for him is not his problem. But while the the transfer fee itself makes me dizzy, the fact that Carroll put in a transfer request pisses me off.
If someone like Andy Carroll puts in a transfer request then what hope is there for loyalty in the game?
Carroll is a player who support(s)ed Newcastle United and apparently dreamed of wearing the number 9 shirt with the club. He achieved that. He also signed a five-year-deal with the Toon in November and wanted to stay with the club forever.
Andy would have had the world at his feet whenever he stepped out into the city of Newcastle and would have been treated like a God. They love a local lad up there, especially one wearing the number 9 shirt.
So why hand in a transfer request?
Carroll is now saying that he was forced out of Newcastle. I'm sorry but I don't buy that. Nobody 'forced' him to request a transfer. He could have just said I don't want to leave and that is that.
If I played for Arsenal and was as loved by Gooners as much as Carroll was by Geordie's I would never leave the club. I wouldn't dream of it.
In fact, not even a loaded gun pointed to my head and the threat of being forced to watch Harry Redknapp interviews all day would force me.
Here we have a player who has fulfilled every Newcastle United supporting fans dreams and now let them down. Could you do to Gooners what he has done to the Toon Army?
There is not a lot of loyalty left in the game today. Every player is motivated by money and I think that the days of one-club-players have gone and won't be back.
And that is a sad situation.
Keep It Goonerish.............
