Great signing, zero risk and he's more fired up than he has been for 8 and a half years.

Moderately happy so long as he is on low wages or pay as you play. If barely used then he will likely be no less value than Joselu was or would have been, but if he clicks, and I have a sneaky feeling he might, then he could be a massive benefit. Nothing to lose basically.

I see him being plan B for the last 10/15mins of the game. We can then lump it forward to him and hope it sticks. Let’s all hope he rediscovers his form for us!
This. Wouldn't mind the occasional Premier league / cup competition start. In the formation we're going to play with the three at the back and big Andy receiving quality service from the likes of Ritchie, Shelvey,Longstaff, Miggy, Maximin and co we should be just fine. Looking forward to how we'll set-up.. means we will have a pretty solid bench with Carroll/Muto/Gayle/etc as the attacking options to choose from. <notbad>

Never been bothered about shirt numbers.

Does this mean we need to sign Kevin Nolan as a coach so Carroll can live in his house

I figured he's been sleeping in his car at Benton waiting for his hiring as an assistant coach?

I'm actually pretty happy he's back. Loved Carroll back in the day.

I mean is there really a single one of you that wouldnt take a few games with Carroll available over Juselu or Gayle?!

No but Carroll, Joselu and Gayle arent the only 3 strikers in the world.

Think we should be aiming for better. Hope he does well though.

17 May 2020, last game v Liverpool .. Andy Carroll rises like phollosus ( a cross between a phoenix and a collosus ) , to head in the 87th minute winner in a 4-3 thriller that breaks Liverpool hearts, hands Man City their Hatrick of titles, takes Carrolls goals tally for the season to four, and puts himinto the reckoning for Brucies FA Cup final squad.
What a player! What a signing! What a day for Newcastle United! .. actual BBC commentary from Moussa Sissoko's first game for Newcastle United

I’m actually sad that this won’t happen, it would be so good!
