Does Carroll deserve a new contract?
Yes, he has had a great impact on the team
No, too early to judge
This news has gone down well with some Toon fans.

it’s just like signing a £135m player… probably… 🙂

He deserves it.

Other Newcastle supporters, though, want to keep him on a play-as-you-play deal.
This is just tempting fate…
Tuesday: Carroll signs new contract
Wednesday: Carroll out for 8 months through injury

Pay as you play for me

Tog, I’d keep as a pay as you play for him on an enhanced rate… it would keep his hunger to play – win win all round

Keep it pay as u play but over next 3 n half years.. Instead of next 6month. N if he doesn’t get serious injury for 3 month straight give him a wage bump

What do we think?
Carroll has undoubtedly made an impact at Newcastle this season.
Though he has not scored yet, he has provided two assists and played a vital role in Miguel Almiron’s first Newcastle goal – as he knocked down Fabian Schar’s cross for the 25-year-old to rifle home. (1:43)
The former Liverpool man, who is valued at £3.6m by Transfermarkt, has a well-documented problem with injuries. Still, so far, for Newcastle, he has managed to avoid any reoccurrence of past injuries.
