Selling Andy Carroll makes no sense at all.

End of the road for the pony tailed one?

Either from a playing perspective or a financial one.

Whichever way you look at it Liverpool can only lose out from the player's sale.

Buying a player for thirty five million and then selling him eighteen months later for less than half of that amount is complete madness. Last time I looked John Henry & co didn't have the financial muscle to be able to drop twenty million in that time frame.

Buying a player for thirty five million and then selling him eighteen months later for less than half of that amount is complete madness. Last time I looked John Henry & co didn't have the financial muscle to be able to drop twenty million in that time frame.

Besides this is an England striker with huge potential and since when were Liverpool in the habit of letting promising players go – let alone England Internationals?

It is one thing to have a system that you want to play to and if the Liverpool manager wants to try and emulate the Barcelona way of playing then that's fine by me but it is also good to have a plan B and Carroll would bring that plan to life

As we watched Barcelona huff and puff and fail to blow the house down against Chelsea in last season's Champions League semi final it was because they couldn't adapt to the obstacle that they faced.

Admittedly Chelsea rode their luck but coming up with a different mode of attack would surely have helped Barcelona breach the Chelsea defence.

It is one thing to say that you want to play in a certain style but quite another to then recklessly sell one of your best assets because you don't think he is going to fit into your style of play.

At Euro 2012 Carroll was one of England's best performers and he held the ball up well and provided an outlet for the midfield.

Selling one of your most promising talents before a ball has been kicked in anger is setting yourself up for a fan backlash. Especially if he went on to have a fantastic career as I think I will.

Route one football is to be abhorred. It is ugly and watching a keeper continually punting the ball downfield and ceding possession like England do is painful to watch.

Liverpool do not want to play that way but as a surprise tactic there is nothing wrong with that. Liverpool have scored a lot of goals from rapid distribution from the keeper.

You buy the most promising premiership striker for a record fee and then want to sell him just as he starts to come to terms with his price tag and breaks into the England team?

Of course there is still a long way to go in this transfer window and Liverpool will have to make up their mind on the futures of Joe Cole and Alberto Aquilani who are both in limbo with their futures undecided so there is a lot of work still to be done.

The only way this deal would make sense is if Newcastle are still to receive a large portion of the transfer fee and that could subsequently be negated. If that was the case then it makes more sense but being as we don't have the transfer details of Carroll's move to Liverpool it's all speculation.
