Carson joins Addicks

After being pipped at the post for Robert Green by the Irons, Charlton have addressed their perceived goalkeeping problem by signing Scott Carson on loan for the rest of the reason. It will be interesting to see if he now becomes the preferred first choice goalkeeper, but it certainly casts doubt on the position of Stephan Andersen who could go out on loan himself.

After starting with local club Cleator Moor Celtic, Carson rose up through the Leeds Academy and reserve sides to the first team. He made his debut for England under 21s in February 2004 and joined Liverpool in January 2005. After some final performances at Anfield, he was called up for the senior England squad for the tour of the USA in May 2006. He spent the last two months of the 2005/6 season on loan at Sheffield Wednesday.

A better goalkeeper than Green in my view, so all's well that end's well. But perhaps not for Thomas Myhre.

Liverpool seem to be happy to do a bit of business with us, since we took Murphy off their payroll.
