An in-depth biography of one of the most exciting talents in English soccer today
Andy Carroll's strength, power, and skill in the air have endeared him to legions of fans—and made him the most expensive British soccer player in history. His whole career is covered here, from the beginning at Newcastle United, where he was the youngest ever player to represent Newcastle in Europe. Soon after, he scored his first senior goal, in a friendly against Juventus, before heading to Preston North End on a six-month loan, where he continued to impress in 11 appearances. Carroll then made a triumphant return to St. James' Park in 2008, scoring his first competitive goal for the club on his first home start, and by 2010 he was playing virtually every game as a key part of Newcastle's Championship-winning side. His impressive form continued in the Premier League and in January 2011 he moved to Liverpool in a deal worth in excess of £35 million. In November 2010 Carroll was called up to the England squad for a friendly against France. Although the match ended in defeat, Carroll's involvement was one of the stand-out performances of the night and he is one of England's great hopes for the future. This in-depth biography charts the highs and lows of one of England's brightest stars.
