Newcastle United Number 9: Andy Carroll

Towards the end of last season there were murmurings of Andy Carroll being awarded the coveted number 9 shirt. Previous Newcastle United players to wear the number 9 shirt were:

  • Hughie Gallacher
  • Albert Stubbins
  • Jackie Milburn (Wor Jackie)
  • Malcolm Macdonald
  • David Kelly
  • Les Ferdinand
  • Alan Shearer

Has Andy Carroll done enough to put himself amongst these famous Newcastle players as owner of the Newcastle Number 9? According to Chris Hughton, the answer to that question is a most definite yes – as Carroll was today given the Number 9 shirt to wear for the Premier League 2010/2011 season.

The lad has had his problems, that much can’t be denied, but I don’t think anyone could doubt his commitment to the club, or his passion to score goals – and isn’t that what wearing the Number 9 shirt at Newcastle is all about?
