'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Carson Keen To Stick With Owls

On-loan Liverpool stopper Scott Carson has expressed his desire to stay with Wednesday rather than return to Anfield and fight for his place in the first team.

Carson pulled out a man-of-the-match performance in front of England coach Ray Clemence in the Owls shock 3-1 victory over high-flying Wolves at the weekend.

The former Leeds 'keeper told the Sun: 'I'm on a month's loan and can be called back to Anfield in 24 hours. But if it's left to me I'd love to stay with Wednesday and help them out of the mire.'

With Jose Reina and Jerzy Dudek in front of Carson in the pecking order, chance have been limited at the Merseyside club. Owls boss Paul Sturrock will hope he can extend the deal until the end of the season.

Carson continued: 'It's very frustrating when you're not playing in games and I really love it at Hillsborough. Wednesday have put my family and me in a nice flat and I can really see me enjoying myself until the end of the season.'

Wednesday are unbeaten since the England under-21 internationan joined on loan - drawing with QPR, and beating promotion hopefuls Preston North End and Wolves.

He really is a top level keeper. Liverpool are lucky to have him as 3rd string. If I were Carson though I would expect to be first choice at a Championship club right now, if not a regular for a 'lesser' prem club like Villa for example.

I'd be delighted if we could keep him until the end of the season, and maybe even get a season-long loan next season if Liverpool still have both keepers there. He deserves to be playing in the Premiership though - I'd imagine he'll end up like Kirkland, but without the injuries!
