Newcastle United star unhappy with Steve Bruce after Leeds United snub – Report

If Lee Ryder’s observations at Elland Road are anything to go by, it sounds like Andy Carroll wasn’t a happy man.

With 15 minutes remaining and the game nicely poised at 2-2, Steve Bruce only had one change left to make.

Carroll’s height and aerial prowess could’ve hurt a Leeds side that have been notoriously soft from set pieces this season, but Bruce’s final substitution saw him bring on Miguel Almiron for a tiring Ryan Fraser.

At this point, Lee Ryder reports that Andy Carroll looked “furious” and “shook his head”, clearly feeling that he could’ve done real damage against a small Leeds side that were only able to field one natural centre-back.

The Chronicle state that the 6ft 4′ striker is ‘determined to play his part this season’, but insist that he is a frustrated figure at present – having failed to feature for over a month now.

Carroll wouldn’t have been much use on the counter, but our best opportunities last night emerged from set pieces and crosses into the box – two things he can thrive from.

With the 31-year-old’s contract up at the end of the season, him struggling for game time and yet to score since he sealed a return to the club 18 months ago, you can see why he was so eager to get on!

  1. Carroll and most of the rest are either past it or not good enough. NUFC need a complete clear out. Including owner, manager and players. But keep the tea lady


  2. stop playing defensive midfielder and like some of the donkey he has brought in like joe linton
