So Liverpool don't want him. And Newcastle aren't interested either. Which leaves Carroll with nowhere else to go. Now, given we hold all the cards, it's time to offer Liverpool a revised deal.
First off, they should be required to meet a percentage of Carroll's wages. They were bloody foolish enough to pay him 100k per week and they are desperate to get him off the wage bill. Fine. So we should alleviate some of that financial pressure, but not all of it.
Then there's the transfer fee. Fifteen million sounds toppy to me in the present market. Let's shave it down to twelve, with add ons based on goals scored and appearances.
And finally there's the issue of Carroll's injury. Let's ensure there's a clause in the deal protecting us should that injury turn out to be worse than first thought. We don't want Carroll arriving half fit, like Dean Ashton!
