Newcastle fans have been discussing a possible return to Tyneside for Andy Carroll, and most fans are in agreement they would not take the towering striker back.
According to reports, Andy Carroll has been sent home from West Ham training after a dispute with David Moyes, and the rumour mill is already churning out possible landing spots for the ex-Magpie.
Carroll has managed three league goals in just seven starts due to injuries this season, and the training ground bust-up could certainly mean the 29 year-old is on his way out of West Ham.
Capped nine times by England, Carroll made 80 league appearances on Tyneside before moving to Liverpool in 2011, grabbing 31 league goals during that time.
Newcastle are having their own problems in the striking department, with none of Islam Slimani, Dwight Gayle or Joselu able to consistently find the net.
The Magpies have been linked with a move for Hull City’s Abel Hernandez, but could Carroll be a better option?
Fans don’t seem to think so, thanks mainly to his injury record, and some of the best Twitter reactions can be found below…
A fit Andy Carroll would have a been the biggest thing since Shearer here – but ya know the rest of this story .

No, far to injury prone, would turn into a waste of money

I'd have a fit, cheap Andy Carroll back but he's far from both those things

I think the real question is…could Rafa and his team be what he needs to stay fit?
