He hasn't set the world on fire so far. He hasn't done badly but there is definately room for improvement. I say sign him up for his potential as much as anything else. The consensus among football pundits is that he will be England's No.1 for years so let's snap him up! Plus Sorensen has just burnt his bridges.....

i'd like to see carson sign, but not for 10 mil. I reckon we'd be better giving sorensen another contract despite his flaws and finding another keeper out there who can do a job for a lot less than 10 mil. Isn't that what we pay our scouts for?

I think he should be dropped at this stage as he is becoming a serious liabilty,he was dreadful against Sunderland and made a complete hash of the disalowed goal.

£10m seems to be a lot to me. He is neat enough around his area but I don't see the reflex saves that great keepers make. Too often the ball is in the net and he is looking at a defender. Not convinced at all.

He is still a good keeper with pootential to become great. Even the best take time to settle. I think that once he has done that he will get better and better. Even Peter Cech made a mistake that cost his team the game. I cant think of a better keeper that is available and would want to come to us at the moment.

£10m , has he made a "save" all season? I can't remember one and at £10m I expect one a game ! Never even caught a cross or corner! Tell me what he does for £10m ? Needs a rest before he costs us a game.

Never worth £10 million, but that is not a price tag he put on his own head. A reasonably competent keeper who is average in most departments but doesn't excel in any. Strikes me as a keeper who is good enough for a team challenging to finish top half but not good enough for one with higher aspirations. A bit like Sorenson but younger.

only carson can kick, and sorenson couldnt. Carson always looks to release the ball early, always looking up the pitch to see who is making a run. I think people are being over critical of him on here personally, dont forget he is only 22, in goal keeper terms he is still a baby.

I think he's got enough about him to be a top notch goalkeeper for us. I really think he's got a lot of ability, he does make good saves, but there has been a noticable conifdence drop since that england game, but tell me who wouldn't have had a confidence drop after that. If we show him the loyalty by buying him, for whatever it costs, he will provide us with at least 10 years good service...and i think that for 10mil is certainly worth it.
