Carroll on His Comeback!

Carroll on His Comeback!

To see Andy Carroll emerging from the bench, at Cardiff, to finally get his season kick-started was a scene to behold.

The bearded striker received a wonderful reception from the travelling support and although he looked a little rusty, especially with his first few touches, the pass that set up Mark Noble for the deciding goal was class.

Hopefully, Andy will have suffered no adverse reaction to his twenty, or so, minutes out on the pitch.

After the game, Andy spoke to the media about his comeback, talking about the next fixture which, ironically, is against the club where the dream started, Newcastle and also those few moments he got on the pitch on Saturday afternoon, commenting,

"The next game is against Newcastle and hopefully I can get a few more minutes against them and we can get a win too."

"Yes, of course it is nostalgic. They are my home town and I am just looking forward to it really, it could have been anyone."

"I am just over the moon about the game coming up as I have been out for too long, so it is fantastic to get back."

"I did okay after a few dodgy touches! I needed the pass for the goal to forget about them! It was a fantastic feeling being out there."

"It has been a bit frustrating and terrible for us. Coming back, I can forget about all of that and just think about football. I can`t stand being on the sidelines."

"It drives me crazy I tried my best to get back fit. It was prolonged with other things and I got injured again. So it was disappointing but I am back now so I am concentrating on getting match fit."


Seeing Andy, almost in full flow, made me realize exactly what we`ve been missing up front, now let`s hope he stays fit!
