As of this morning, word is reaching Pies that Tottenham have had a £15 million bid for Newcastle bruiser Andy Carroll rejected, prompting Toon boss Alan Pardew to once again repeat that his towering forward is not for sale at any sodding price.

Said Pardew, quoted in the Metro of all places:

“Spurs can bid whatever they like. He is not for sale. I am going to say it one last time, Andy’s not for sale.”

Yesterday, Spurs manager Harry Redknapp signalled his interest in Carroll in his customary, round-the-houses style:

“He’s a good player, but we are nowhere near getting Carroll. How much is he worth? You are talking £30-to-£40 million.”

Which begs the question: What the hell are you doing going in at £15 million then?

    Harry Redknapp is a pest. He has some cheek getting all upset and defensive about other clubs talking fondly about his players whilst continually perpetrating the same action himself.

    The weird thing is I believe Pardew is spurs offered 60m tommorow he would tell them to sod off he’s not for sale and I quite like that about him.

  3. Ali says:

    Do you really think Pardew has any say in who is sold and for how much!

  4. Tinez says:

    There is one positive coming out of this for Redknapp; at these prices no one will accuse him of being a wheeler-dealer

    didnt he also say he doesnt do the negotiations on sky sports yesterday?

    English players are always absurdly over-valued. I wouldn’t even pay £15 mil for him.

    @ Philando Torres:

    Thank you mate, you’ve started me off again with this subject…….

    Who in the name of Jesus in england is worth 40 million?

    He scored a hat trick on the first day and he’s drafted up to the england squad……. thats how bad the england team are. Desperate.

    England are atrocious and they over hype and over pay players that are not world class.

    There’s another article about that ape Bent who is going for 18 mill……… You are having a giraffe.

    Not one decent, consistent player in the england squad yet this goon is worth 40 mill? who the fukkk makes up the prices?

    wankers up your own arse, death of english football and the english team. Never win anything again
