Carroll Awaits Ex Team Mates

"Hmmm, still reckon i can catch that Callaghan..."
In what will surely be a tense tie at Anfield tomorrow all eyes will be on the £35million pound man Andy Carroll. After the Geordie left his boyhood club in January in such quick style it will be interesting to see the reactions he gets from the fans in black and white tomorrow.

Newcastle currently find themselves in a rather secure 11th place on 41 points. Their last three results have saw them hold an impressive goalless draw with title chasers Manchester United, a slim victory over Aston Villa and a draw with Ian Holloway's Blackpool side.

The Magpies are quite a formidable opposition at St James' Park but i can see them coming undone tomorrow at Anfield. With the form Liverpool are in at the moment, especially after that battering of Birmingham last weekend, Pardew will need to be weary if he doesn't want to travel back to the North East with nothing from the game.

Newcastle have doubts hanging over Kevin Nola…

Early Christmas Carroll For Liverpool Sings Of Woeful Season

Kuyt got Liverpool's only goal...
An embarrassing 3-1 defeat yesterday for Liverpool has only piled even more pressure onto manager Roy Hodgson and onto the lads to fork out some consistency. Of course different fans have different views on the reasons why Liverpool's season has been so atrocious but i think one thing we can agree on is something needs to change.
1 win in our last 9 away fixtures is not acceptable. For a side like Liverpool, faltering or not, that kind of away form would stand you in good stead for relegation favourites if it were paired up with a matching home form, thank god it's not but it's just not good enough.
Newcastle's first goal came within the first 15minutes. The Reds beforehand had a few chances from the likes of Kyrgiakos and Maxi but nothing really to threaten the Magpies. Kevin Nolan capitalised on his chance and managed to get the ball past Reina at his near post. The assist came from Andy Carroll who would later pop up again, i didn&…

Is Alan Pardew A First Game Victory?

Truly flying at the moment, surely a threat for Liverpool tomorrow...
Liverpool travel to St. James' Park tomorrow evening in one of the first Saturday matches i can remember in a long time for the Reds. Newcastle of course have been all over the news this week after the sacking of manager Chris Hughton and his replacement in Alan Pardew.
I could get into the whole situation and make several comments on my thoughts of Newcastle's decision and how Mike Ashley runs his beloved football club but i shant get into it. For their fans sake though, i do hope Pardew does well for them.
Back to the game and Liverpool are still having some injury problems, Carragher has successfully had his operation so is on the mend but will not be around for a few months. Jay Spearing is still out and Daniel Agger still unavailable although the latest is that he's doing well in training and hopes to feature before Christmas.
Captain Steven Gerrard is fighting hard but has been ruled out by Roy Hodgson…
