Rodgers open to Carroll loan
Liverpool's Andy Carroll struggled to find his best form last season
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers would consider sending England striker Andy Carroll out on loan.
The 23-year-old has struggled to live up to expectations since moving to Anfield from Newcastle for £35million 18 months ago.
He is reportedly wanted on a season-long by AC Milan, and Rodgers said in The Daily Telegraph: "It's something I would have to look at, I have to be honest."
He added: "I'm not going to sit here and say I will never let anyone go on loan, then come in here in two weeks and a player's gone, and you're saying 'you said you wouldn't let them go'.
"There are many things to going on loan. Is it going to be beneficial for the club, that's the most important thing?
"Sometimes a player going out on loan - in general, not just Andy - can benefit the club in the long term.
"It gets them game experience, and they come back a better player, a more confident one. Certainly more so than if they've been sitting on the bench for the majority of the season.
"Andy's always going to be linked with clubs, whether he was here or not. I have spoken to him on his holidays, he knows exactly where he stands, but I have had no inquiries about him."

So once again we read a NONE STORY written presumably by a NONE JOURNALIST. The manager is open to various options as he should be. This is simply twisting a reply to a question asked and making it into a Statement of fact, which of course it was not.
Can we have some real stories by real journaists please. Trouble is though, MSN have taken away the option to express your opinion in the blogs when a real story is offered up. MSN you could be a world beating blog site, but your more of a rubbish dump.
This could be a blessing in disguise for both club & player if indeed he does go out on loan, personally I would like him to start the season with us especially if he can continue the form he showed at the end of last season.
he is a works in progress, very young and has time on his side, so to go out on loan especially has already mooted to AC Milan then it could be a good thing.
but if he doesn't go out on loan that suits me too.
What a lovely bit of business that was from Mike Ashley and his cockney mafia.......Sold for £35 million and then bought Demba Ba for nowt and Papis Cisse for what seems a bargain £10 million - Howay the lads!!
He started playing well towards the end of the season and lets be honest now.. he played good in the Euro's when he played. Seems a bit harsh reading most of the comments about him after his improvements. I do hope come the end of the season I can laugh at you all for your quick to judge attitudes :D
What I do find funny is the AC Milan link, if he wants more game time AC Milan isnt the place to be as he would be hard pressed to even make it onto the bench let alone their starting 11.
Anyways good luck to Brendan as hes got an uphill battle - 1/2 the kop already hate him because hes taken Kenny's job so hes not going 2 get much support there and the other 1/2 dont think hes up to the job because their still deluded Liverpool are 1 of the best.
Madness! He can't let carroll go on loan, he needs premiership experience for Liverpool. Carroll has a great deal of potential, he showed that at Newcastle and those abilities are not lost with a transfer. He has had time now to get used to being a highly paid, highly rated youngster, he has had time away with England and would have learnt from that. I'm thinking that he will have a good season at Liverpool if he is allowed to do so.
Andy Carroll will be a great English striker just you all wait and see, and thats from a Utd fan.
