£10 million was the price that was written into the loan contract with villa. they piad £2m initially but throughout the season deemed his performances not worthy of the extra £8m (that they had agreed to paying in the first place)...he then becomes a fee agent.stoke didnt want him for £4m. o'neill doesnt fancy him either...ergo, he goes for £3.25m
Thats a great signing for you guys, I hope you stay up like Sunderland as you certainly have a decent enough squad now. Good luck for next season from a United fan!
Brilliant signing We couldn't realistically ask for anyone better, and often you'd have to look hard to find a better goalie.Just what we needed. Boing boing!
Sorry to wee on your fire but he was without doubt the worst keeper i have ever seen at Villa you would have been better getting Sorensen on a free
cheers we will b stayin up without doubt,mobray the man will get the best out of carson all u villa vans will c a diff keeper
dave kitson who? 5.5 mill come on there r far better strikers than that 4 that money,could of had kevin phillips 4 nout
I think West Broms chances to stay up just increased by 50%.

Carson is a quality keeper who was too good to be warming the bench at Anfield. People will go on about his mistakes against Croatia but he was made a scapegoat by the media in the same way that David Seaman was during his England career (and nobody really looking back, can say he was a poor keeper can they?) One game that sticks out in my mind as a Liverpool fan was when he played for us against Juventus at Anfield. He pulled off a couple of world-class saves to keep us in the lead against a quality (and indeed Serie A winning) Juve side, which eventually put us on the path to glory in Istanbul. I'm sure he'll get a great reception when he comes back to Anfield playing for the Baggies - although hopefully he won't have quite such a blinder!
