Andrew Carroll - 11 goals
Appearances: PL 18(1), LC 0(1)
He is big, strong and powerful. For a people with his height, he has good feet. A season in the Championship has giving him much needed playing experience and he started to score regularly. He was handed the sacred jersey no.9 at the start of the season. A hattrick in the game against Aston Villa and good subsequent performances earned him England national team call up, which then he made debut against France. He is always proved to be handful for opposition defence. He managed to score 11 goals up to January.
His off field problems were a regular source of news for the media. This however does not affect his performances on the pitch. He managed to put his troubles aside especially in games against Arsenal away (he scored the winning goal) and West Ham away. However, his time at the club has proven to be short as he joined Liverpool on a £35 million transfer during the last day of January transfer window. This transfer has enraged the fans who questioned his loyalty and there were also claims of him being forced out from the club. His goals played a big role to ensure survival of Newcastle in the Premier League. Because the transfer was done on the last day of transfer window, Newcastle failed to find any replacement and the money received cannot be spent until summer. He however still need to prove himself to the Reds fans if he really worth 35 million.
