Word is reaching WHB towers that Andy Carroll has passed his medical 'with flying colours' so it looks like big Andy will be a hammer tomorrow. Great news in my view, we know what this guy can do on his day, he is a match winner pure and simple and a player who makes a difference. Not every club has a player like him and for me, that is the difference between survival and progress or relegation.
Top clubs have players who make a difference in every position, I'm talking Madrid or Barcelona here. By adding Carroll to the mix we have added a genuine class act to our squad, and the opportunity to find more players of his ilk in other positions. Great news and great to have you on board Andy, it's like you've been with us for a season already!
