Journalist reveals staggering bonus Andy Carroll receives for each sub appearance

Daily Star journalist Aaron Stokes has revealed that Andy Carroll earns an extra £35,000-a-week every time he comes off the bench.

Gateshead born Carroll has failed to impress since his return to Tyneside in 2019, making 40 appearances for just one solitary goal in return.

The majority of these have come from the bench – which is evident when you see that his 17 games this season have totalled just 376 minutes of football – and do little to suggest he’ll be worthy of a new deal when his contract expires this summer.

Does this explain why Bruce regularly brings the striker on in extra time? After all, four of his last five sub appearances have seen him come on for a grand total of five minutes!

One thing Carroll will always give you is fight, but his performances have been hard to watch at times. He has just one goal to his name in almost two seasons, struggles to stay fit and often looks unable to live with the pace of play when he’s on.

His contract is up for renewal in the summer and, unless he hits an unlikely run of form in the meantime, it appears probable that he will be allowed to leave.

A career blighted by injury after injury, it’s a shame how his best days are long behind him at 32. He has always seemed like a decent bloke who had the potential to be a massive star when he first burst on the scene, but it feels like time to let him go.

  1. I love the way you publish the salary details like you just uncovered a huge secret.

    Carroll’s salary details were public when he signed. And by the way – you forgot to mention that he’s on a 20K a week basic.

    Personally I’d prefer him on the field instead of Gayle or Joelinton.

    Lol must be bored and have nothing positive to write about. Carroll is on pay as you play so he gets paid the humongous bonus if he starts or is a sub lol. 10 out of 10 for over dramatising though.

  3. I used to love the way Carroll played before leaving for the Liverbirds…

    …but sadly now he doesn’t play football and thinks he’s doing well if he injured a opposition player (!!!??)

    He is still better than Joelinton – must be in his contract that J must start EVERY game as if it wasn’t Bruce again is showing that he’s simply not up for a Management position – in any league!

    Under a MANAGER we might get Carroll back to playing football and get rid of Bruce’s choices Hendrick and backslider Fraser!

    We have some good player’s
