Liverpool are on the verge of doing what many at least, if not impossible, thought unlikely at the start of the season. They defeated Manchester City 3-2, and are now on first place, and it seems only Chelsea will be able to threaten them. But with their splendid form it seems, if not impossible, unlikely that Liverpool should mess it all up.
There were three major talking points from Liverpool's 2-1 win over West Ham at Upton Park. Referee Anthony Taylor was kept very busy all afternoon and didn't have a great game in my opinion. Here's why. The first controversy was when he awarded a penalty to Liverpool after James Tomkins was judged to have prevented the ball going past him, after Luis Suarez touched the ball to the side of the defender.
There's news in the Sunday People today that there is dressing room unrest at Newcastle at the moment, but that should hardly come as a surprise to anybody. Alan Pardew if I close my eyes maybe it's not happening When Andy Carroll left Newcastle there were also a number of players notably [...]
When Alan Pardew first arrived at Newcastle in December of 2010, he was telling everybody who would listen to him, that Andy Carroll was going nowhere and that the Geordie striker was simply not for sale in that January transfer window. Andy Carroll while at Newcastle And Newcastle even turned down bids of Â£20M [.
Newcastle have now lost four games in a row, and two of those defeats were against the Premier League top two sides at the moment Arsenal and Manchester City and we were a little unlucky not take something out of both those games. Andy Carroll could start for Hammers on Saturday And [...]
Newcastle are now a club who periodically will have to sell one of their very best players as a way of funding several new good players, who can help make the Newcastle squad stronger. Mike Ashley has put no financial restrictions on Newcastle And Newcastle did that with the Andy Carroll sale, when we [.
In this weekly column, I take a look back at the weekend's English Premier League and domestic cup action and the talking points that it throws up, as well as any significant news related to English football at large. Follow me @vincetalksfooty for regular updates throughout the week.
West Ham started their season off with a strong victory over Cardiff City with their new additions from the last two transfer windows getting things off to the right start. However, injuries to key players such as Andy Carroll, Stewart Downing and Joe Cole have seen the club hampered as of late as their struggle to build their offense around their summer marquee signing's of Carroll and Downing.
West Ham United are weighing up sending striker Andy Carroll to the United States in a bid to aid his recovery of his heel injury. The former Liverpool striker has already seen specialists in both Holland and Belgium, but following those two trips he is still listed without a return date following his record move to the Hammers over the summer.
Southampton hosts West Ham United today at St Mary's Stadium in the only Premier League match of the day. For viewers in the United States, the broadcast begins at 10:30am ET on NBCSN, while the match itself kicks off at 11am ET. For viewers in the United Kingdom, the match will be shown live on Sky Sports.
New West Ham signing Andy Carroll has picked up an injury to his foot. West Ham are unsure how long the striker will be out as he is already suffering from a heal injury that he picked up in the final match of last season that has prevented him from making an appearance for the club this year. Carroll is yet to see a specialist to determine the severity of the new injury.
West Ham United have suffered a major setback today after striker Andy Carroll picked up a new injury during training.
Carroll, who signed for West Ham United on a permanent deal in May for a transfer fee of around Â£15million, has been injured since the beginning of the season. Carroll suffered the injury to his right foot during his return to full training today.
West Ham have equalised on the stroke of half-time against Liverpool. And they did so in very controversial circumstances. Guy Demel turned the ball in, but only after Andy Carroll had slapped Reds keeper Simon Mignolet in the face. The linesman flagged to signal a foul but, after lengthy discussions, was overruled by referee Anthony [.
A constructive dismissal case has been brought by a former Liverpool chauffeur sacked for allegedly swearing at former Reds striker Andy Carroll. Dave Sloan told an employment tribunal that he had flown to Ibiza with a visa for Carroll so that he could join the Reds' US tour. But he was later sacked for swearing [.
It's strange that player market value make no match to their ability these days. Liverpool paid Â£35 million for acquiring the service of Andy Carroll and it turned out to be one of the worst signings in the Premier league.
The problem with Carroll was he just tried to be the 35 million striker when he was at the pitch, trying to take on defenders and beating them something you expect from a striker who arrived for a lot of money.
As tacked to James Collins' locker at Chadwell Heath this morning by none other than West Ham's resident secretary of banter, Andy Carroll here's the gristly defender's stunning poster for his "Miss Wales 2014â€³ entry...
We've no idea if potential Miss Wales entrants are actually sourced or voted for on Instagram like this, but what we do know is that phwoar Collins don't half scrub up well.
West Ham striker Andy Carroll has revealed that he is going out with former This Only Way is Essex star Billi Mucklow. The couple confirmed the relationship via a photo on her Instagram account. The couple have reportedly been dating last summer... so Billi has only has only really been dating a footballer for the [.
DISGRACEFUL!!! Andy Carroll (@AndyTCarroll) February 4, 2014 West Ham striker Andy Carroll has failed in his bid to have his red card in last weekend's win against Swansea overturned. The England international branded the decision as "disgraceful" on his Twitter account. Carroll's flailing arm hit Swans defender Chico Flores, but most pundits agreed that [.
It's officially over. She's had an ice bath and eaten a load of carbs. pic.twitter.com/Jg9vGqVZHu Charlie Webster (@CharlieCW) February 1, 2014 Andy Carroll nearly had to take a bath with Sky Sports News presenter Charlie Webster after his red card in West Ham's win over Swansea on Saturday. Webster had completed a 250-mile charity [.

Andy Carroll showed some real class in the air as he assisted both of Kevin Nolan's first half goals as the Hammers beat Swansea 2-0 at Upton Park today, however they still occupy the relegation play-offs despite collecting 4 points out of their last six available.
Over the moon to be back as you can see!! #Package pic.twitter.com/KXR0sBwIlu Andy Carroll (@AndyTCarroll) January 12, 2014 It looks like the Capital One Cup second leg against Manchester City isn't the only semi at West Ham. Striker Andy Carroll has been joking about a bulge in his shorts visible as he celebrated the [.
With his big frame, clodhopping style and, of course, his ponytail, West Ham striker Andy Carroll has frequently being compared to a horse. And it seems even his parents are getting in on the act. The Carrolls marked Andrew's 25th birthday by sending him a horse-themed birthday card. The England international said: "Yes this is [.

The Â£15m summer signing has been out of action [.
West Ham shelled out Â£17M in the summer for Andy Carroll, and even increased the wages he was getting at Liverpool to a monstrous Â£100K/week, which is a good example of a club putting all their money on one player but Andy has been out injured all season and hasn't played one minute for [...]
There have been a number of reports coming out of France since Saturday on Yohan Cabaye possibly being on his way to Paris Saint-Germain, and Montpellier's Remy Cabella coming to Newcastle, and both deals will be completed in January at least according to the reports. Remy Cabella Montpellier want to keep him until [.
There was uproar and pandemonium when Andy Carroll was sold to Liverpool for Â£35M just less than three years ago, but in retrospect that has turned out be a great deal for Newcastle. Andy Carroll while at Newcastle And the then new manager Alan Pardew took the heat from the fans, as he had [...]
Bafe Gomis is probably a Newcastle target for the January transfer window, although it appears that West Ham will be in for any striker that's available, after Andy Carroll is injured again, and hasn't played yet this season. Bafe Gomis - Newcastle target next month Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas tried to sell his striker in [.
We've mentioned a few times that players who have done well at Newcastle don't always fare as well when they leave, and some examples include Shay Given, Habib Beye, Andy Carroll, Charles N'Zogbia (wonder if he sleeps any better these days?), and more recently Danny Guthrie and Demba Ba. Demba Ba - on the move [.
When players leave Newcastle it's very rare that they do as well at another club than they did at Newcastle, and some examples are Shay Given, Charles N'Zogbia, Andy Carroll, Joey Barton, Danny Guthrie, and most recently Demba Ba. Demba Ba when he returned to St. James Park earlier this year That's not always [.
West Ham paid a massive Â£15M to sign Andy Carroll from Liverpool in the summer, and the reports were that Carroll even got a wage increase to go to London, and is being paid Â£100K/week by the London side. Andy Carroll could be out another four months Andy was injured in the last game [...]
This situation we have today is very similar to when the transfer windowended two years ago, when we failed to get in a striker to replace Andy Carroll, and there was all hell to pay, even though we made some good signings that summer, including Yohan Cabaye, Demba Ba, Sylvain Marveaux and Davide Santon, and [.
Southampton have worked hard to make smart purchases this summer and now are hoping that the arrivals of key new signings such as Dejan Lovren, Victor Wanyama and Pablo Osvaldo push them forward and help to keep them in the top flight for the foreseeable future.
West Ham on the other hand have seen their major purchase of the summer in Andy Carroll not even get off the treatment table as his latest injury set back has it looking as if he will be out for some time.
On Tuesday evening, England go into their final away fixture of the World Cup qualifying campaign without Danny Welbeck, Andy Carroll, Wayne Rooney and Daniel Sturridge. With just Jermain Defoe and Rickie Lambert available (from the existing squad named by Roy Hodgson) no replacements have been called for.
