With the season drawing to a close, Martin O'Neill has said he has made no firm decision on the future of Scott Carson.
There's no doubt that Carson has talent and potential and it's a well known fact that goalkeepers generally come on in leaps and bounds as they mature. Problem is, especially since the Croatia game, his confidence has seemed very shot and he's let in way too many goals that you would expect a keeper of his quality to keep out.
The reported fee of £10 million has made plenty of fans nervous, so it'll be interesting to see how this pans out.
Speaking to the Beeb, O'Neill said:
"We have Scott until the end of the season and when we talked about it in the first place, there was no decision going to be made one way or another until the end of the season.
"Now, of course, if someone does very well then there is talk about 'can you hurry this on?' or if someone is not doing so cleverly then the talk is 'well, what are you doing about it?'
"That is a natural question for people to ask me - but an unnatural one to answer.
"I will wait until the end of the season. Liverpool are heavily involved now in competitions so we will wait and then all parties will sit down."
To prove the point, O'Neill added:
"With all the hullabaloo surrounding Liverpool at the moment, I would have been surprised if they were sitting down to have a discussion (about Carson). At the end of the season we will decide - all of us.'
