Saturday, April 6th, 2013 · 114 Comments

Brendan Rodgers has started to tell clubs they will not get Andy Carroll this summer on the cheap – but we’d be very surprised if any club comes in for Andy at Liverpool’s asking price of £17M.

Andy Carroll, hopes he can repeat the kind of performance he showed against West Bromwich Albion.
