Team-mates’ training ground scrap

Newcastle team-mates Andy Carroll and Charles N’Zogbia came to blows during a training ground bust-up yesterday. Frenchman N’Zogbia, who has made his desire to leave the club well-known, took exception to a tackle from 20-year-old Carroll.

The fight took place with a bewildered contingent from Carlisle United – who were at Newcastle’s Benton training ground to play a practice match – looked on. A made up person told The Sun: “All hell broke loose and it was not nice. Punches were flying.”

There must be something in the water up there. First we had Lee Bowyer and Kieron Dyer’s on-pitch scrap, and then Joey Barton and Jose Enrique’s near on-pitch dustup last weekend.
