£15m? Jog on.
15M + Ba? How about that?  :>

£15m? It seems low, but what people have to remember is that the fee is irrelevant.
I trust the King, but if we lose a few more on the trot now - he may have to step aside, and we have to purchase another manager in the middle of the season. If we are relegated, this could be the end of our ambitions to win any title the next 100 years.

£15million and Ba, or £15million and Cabaye, then you have yourself a deal Mr Ashley.

I'd take 15m. If we can find a good striker in time of course.

Times reporting Newcastle will try re-sign Carroll for £15 million. Would probably accept that to be honest, it's just not worked out, and I doubt it will unfortunately. His touch's heavy, he's slow. we all make mistakes, I say sell and move on. Probably best for all parties.
Pretty happy with Arse taking it.

Newcastle ready to pay £15m for Andy Carroll, according to The Times.

I think from what we've seen of Carroll, him leaving and being replaced is probably the right decision as our approach and style really doesn't get the best out of his play, so it would be best for all involved.

It all depends on what we can get as a return and re-invest in, this window.

This does not compute with not buying a striker until the end of the transfer window.

Surely we wont have another deadline day like last year.

£15m and Ba? I would still say no because of his "potential" knee issues and he is off the the ACON. If his knee was ok then perhaps.

You'd turn down £15m and Ba...really?

I'd take £15m.

I'd take Cabaye in a heart beat, heck I'd take 10 million and Cabaye. Think he's happy there though for now.

I would keep him till at least Summer and see how he does for the rest of the season. I don't really think he fits into our system, but may as well give him till Summer. We are meant to support our players after all  ::)

They are willing to pay £15 million according to Times. Liverpool would look for £25 million. I'm no expert at Maths but he must be available for £20 million.

I hope we give him at least till the end of the season then see what happens from there.

If this is genuine (the Times never get it wrong, do they?), then if we can negotiate up to at least $18 million then it might happen.  I like Andy, and think eventually he would come good, but I trust Kenny and Damien to decide if it is best to make a move.  $18 million would go a long way to bringing a $25-$30 million striker in.

Carroll has got the opportunity now with some big games coming up in which he's likely to play to show how much he wants to be at the club and that he's not interested in going back to Newcastle. If he doesn't show any desire to be here and he's looking for the opportunity to leave then we should just try and get the best price we can for him.

I think Carroll could turn out to be a top player but if he wants to return to the comfort zone he was in at Newcastle and doesn't have the motivation to stick things out here then we need to find someone who is upto the challenge of playing for Liverpool.

Is the full story available anywhere? Would like to read that before making a judgement...

Think it's clear to most that Carroll hasn't been the right fit, but that's not to say he couldn't be eventually.

I think he can be a top striker, just not in our system. He was perfect for Newcastle, but that doesn't mean he was going to be perfect for us.

My head says cut our losses and reinvest in someone who would suit us, but my heart says the lad can still make it here.

I wouldn't sell him. A lot of players like Henry and Bale struggled in their first season at a top club. If there isn't improvement in 12 months I'd consider it but certainly not yet!
