Newcastle striker Andy Carroll celebrates scoring his side’s third goal – his second of the game – in the 5-1 drubbing of Cardiff at St James’ Park on Friday evening.
In other news, Carroll has been charged with assault after an alleged incident in a nightclub which took place in December last year. He answered bail at a Newcastle police station yesterday to be charged with “assault occasioning actual bodily harm”. Carroll is due to appear at Newcastle Magistrates’ Court on 25 February.
Yet another great day for The Beautiful Game, eh.
