You should trust tribalfootball as far you might be able to hurl your computer. I would be majorly surprised if Newcastle sold Andy Carroll, who looked a little raw in his run in the first team towards the end of last season, and I’m equally surprised that he’s named as a Fulham target.

It’s clear that Roy Hodgson will be looking for reinforcements in the striking department during the transfer window but I’ve never seen anything concrete (or even tabloid) linking us with the young Geordie. While the Mirror suggests Newcastle are ready to take a punt on Jordan Rhodes, I think it’s pretty unlikely Carroll will end up at the Cottage.
