Brendan Rodgers is playing transfer's version of the Hokey Cokey
The Andy Carroll saga has certainly gripped fans on both Tyneside and Merseyside this summer.
But for Brendan Rodgers it is surely a case of making his mind up on the England international, before he finds himself in an awkward position.
It was on July 9 that Rodgers told us: "Sometimes a player going out on loan - in general, not just Andy - can benefit the club in the long-term.
"I'm not going to sit here and say I will never let anyone go on loan."
For me Rodgers has quickly backtracked on Carroll.
Only a few days ago, he then said: "To consider a loan for someone the club spent £35m on isn't something we're looking to do at this moment in time."
Not only was being loose, when the subject of Carroll going out on loan first mooted (when AC Milan were linked), a dangerous and risky move at such an early stage of his Anfield managerial career, it will be interesting to see how it has gone down with influential characters like Steven Gerrard.
When AC Milan were first linked, Carroll had nothing but going back to Liverpool on his mind and trying to impress his new manager.
The fact he's flying out to Boston shows his character that he's always willing to battle on.
Understandably if Liverpool do decide to let him go and the bid from Newcastle matches their valuation, there's only place he really wants to be.
But until Liverpool make up their minds, the Carroll saga will run on and on this summer.
