Andy Carroll

With Christmas around the corner, Newcastle United's stars have been queuing up to wish seasonal greetings to the hundreds of thousands of supporters who visit www.nufc.co.uk every day.

They've got all kinds of messages in a variety of languages and they're all dedicated to you.

Leading from the front, as he so often does, is ten-goal number nine, Andy Carroll. And as he wrote out his card, the festively-named frontman revealed that he loves Christmas.

He said: "I'd like to wish all our fans, wherever they are in the world, a great Christmas.

"It's a time of year that I love - I still remember going down to see Fenwick's windows with my family as a kid - and it's good that we've got a home game for a change on Boxing Day.

"Hopefully we can have a full house for that one and give the fans the win they want for Christmas."

Look out over the next few days, in the run-up to December 25, where we'll have many more Christmas messages from the stars...

Merry Christmas from Andy Carroll
