Andy Carroll Life

Andrew Thomas Carroll (born 6 January 1989) is an English professional footballer who plays as a striker for Premier League club Newcastle United.

He has played in the Premier League and Football League for Newcastle United, Preston North End, Liverpool and West Ham United, and at senior international level for the England national team.

Carroll started his professional career with Newcastle United in 2006, before spending a brief period on loan with Preston North End, during which time he scored his first league goal.

He established himself as a regular in the Newcastle first team by 2008, and following Newcastle's relegation from the Premier League to the Championship in 2009, scored 17 goals in 39 appearances to help Newcastle finish first in the league, earning immediate promotion back to the Premier League in the process.

He continued to play for Newcastle in the Premier League, scoring 11 goals in 19 appearances. Carroll signed for Liverpool on the last day of the transfer window on 31 January 2011 for a fee of £35 million, at the time the highest amount paid for a British footballer.

Carroll was bought to replace Fernando Torres, who moved from Liverpool to Chelsea on the same day for a fee of £50 million.

An injury sustained in December delayed his Liverpool debut until March 2011, and he scored his first two goals for his new club in April 2011 in a 3–0 victory over Manchester City.

In August 2012, Liverpool agreed a £2 million loan deal that would see Carroll spend a season-long loan at West Ham United.

This move was made permanent in June 2013 for a fee of £15 million.

He spent six injury-impacted years at West Ham and was released in 2019 at the end of his contract.

In August 2019 Carroll re-signed with his boyhood club Newcastle as a free agent.

Between 2010 and 2012, Carroll played nine matches for England, scoring twice, including one goal at UEFA Euro 2012.

Personal life

Born in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, Carroll attended Brighton Avenue Primary School and Joseph Swan School. He is a model for clothing retail company H&M and has fronted a campaign led by fashion designer Alexander Wang. In November 2014, Carroll became engaged to reality TV star Billi Mucklow. The couple live in Essex. Their son, Arlo, was born in June 2015. He has two children from a previous relationship. In November 2017, Mucklow and Carroll had a second child.

In November 2016, Carroll was approached by two men on motorcycles while driving near his home in Brentwood, Essex. Armed with a handgun, they attempted to steal his £22,000 watch but failed. Carroll was then chased in his car for about 20 minutes as he drove back to West Ham's training ground in Rush Green to get help from security staff. In September 2017, 22-year-old Jack O'Brien was found guilty of the attempted robbery. He was sentenced to six years in prison for the offence.

In May 2019, Carroll was listed as the 14th-wealthiest sports person aged 30 or under in The Sunday Times Rich List, his personal wealth having increased to £19m.


Andy Carroll Career

Club career

Carroll, an occasional scorer in Newcastle United's reserve team, signed his first professional deal with the club in July 2006. In a 1–0 win over Palermo on November 2, 2006, he made his first-team debut on November 2, 2006, at the age of 17 years and 300 days. Nolberto Solano replaced him late in the competition. In doing so, he became Europe's youngest ever player to represent Newcastle.

On January 17, 2007, he made his FA Cup debut, appearing as a substitute for the last ten minutes in Birmingham City's 5–1 home loss. Carroll came as a replacement in Newcastle's 1–0 loss to Wigan Athletic in the 87th minute, with almost scoring in the process; only Wigan goalkeeper John Filan stopped him from scoring his first Newcastle goal on February 25, 2007.

He was the winner of the Wor Jackie Milburn Trophy, which is given every year to the rising star of North-East football, chosen from among Newcastle players.

Carroll won by 2–0 over Juventus in a friendly match on Friday, with a left-foot shot on 29 July 29, 2007. Carroll received praise from Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, who tipped Carroll to have a big future after the match.

Carroll began a six-month loan with Preston North End on August 14 and made his League debut against Morecambe on the same day. Carroll played for Preston against Scunthorpe United on September 18th, his first red card of his professional career. Against Leicester City on 6 November, he scored his first Championship goal and his first English league goal.

Carroll made his first appearance for Newcastle in the 2008–09 season on October 20th, serving as a replacement for Shola Ameobi at home to Manchester City. Carroll scored his first competitive goal for Newcastle on his first home run in 2009 with a header against West Ham United in a 2–2 draw. On March 12, 2009, he signed a new three-and-a-half year, effectively keeping him at Newcastle until 2012.

Carroll was paired with Shola Ameobi in Newcastle's attack for Newcastle following Newcastle's demotion and the departures of first-team strikers Michael Owen, Mark Viduka, and Obafemi Martins. With a header, he scored his first league goal in the Championship against Blackpool on September 16, 2009. Carroll was playing virtually every match in a new strike partnership with Peter Lvenkrands by 2010. In 2010, this collaboration fulfilled more than half of the club's targets. Carroll had 19 goals in all competitions, 17 in the league, and 17 in the league.

Carroll earned his first hat-trick against Aston Villa in their 6–0 victory in the Premier League on August 22. On October 3, 2010, Carroll captained Newcastle for the first time as a replacement for Kevin Nolan against Manchester City.

Carroll has confirmed that Carroll will wear the number 9 jersey formerly worn by Fernando Torres, who left Anfield for Chelsea on the same evening for £50 million. Carroll became the eighth overall most expensive footballer at the time, as well as the most expensive British footballer of all time. After Torres, he became the second most expensive footballer to play for a British club. Carroll, however, would have to wait a while before his Liverpool debut due to an injury suffered while working with Newcastle.

He won his first trophy with Liverpool as they gained the League Cup on Sunday, defeating Cardiff City in the final on February 26. He beat Blackburn Rovers on Saturday, bringing an injury-time victory to an end to Liverpool's run of four games without a win. Liverpool beat Everton in the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley on his 50th appearance for Liverpool. He was four days later.

Carroll agreed to a six-year deal with West Ham on June 19, 2013, representing a record transfer fee that was not paid to the club until that time.

Carroll's heel injury was the cause of an accident in the last match of the season. In the 72nd minute of West Ham's second goal, he made his first appearance of the season as a replacement. Sky Sports named him man of the match for his role in a 2–1 win over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light in which he scored one and assisted with the other Hammers' goals on March 31.
