Carroll: Last season first I felt Newcastle first-choice

Andy Carroll says last season was the first time he felt like a Newcastle United first-choice.

The Toon forward admits 12 months ago turmoil off the field was difficult to handle.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "For me, I appreciated knowing I was first choice for the first time.

"From November I started playing week in and week out because of injuries really.

"I got on a bit of a roll, scoring a goal and then getting another one the week after. I think from that point I was picking myself."
