Vital Villa asked what Villa would do against Scunthorpe.
70% got it bang on the money predicted a win against Scunthorpe.
27% predicted a rout and thought we'd thrash them - obviously not accounting for the crossbar which we hit about 332222 times last night, well, ok 3-4 but give me some license!
2% thought we'd lose to Scunny and 1% said a draw.
The latest poll was suggested by EquatorialVilla who wanted to know if we should swap Thomas Sorensen for Stuart Taylor. There seems to be a few doubts about Sorensen amongst fans but I must admit, I'm not sure about changing him last week against Watford he kept us in the game with some world class saves.
Here are just a few comments after last nights cup game:
I thought Sorensen made some excellent saves again, but he is also prone to some basic mistakes. I personally think he is a weakness in the side. Donzarra.
I always feel sorry for keepers, they can make a string of excellent saves, but if they make one mistake in the match, concede a goal, everybody is on his back. Is there a single keeper in the world who never makes mistakes? Saurat
Sorenson is an excellent shot stopper, shame he lacks conviction in everything else. His distribution and judging crosses has been poor for a over a year now, I think its time for Taylor to have a go. Even though Tommo pulled off some fabulous saves last night he could have easily cost us the game, he reminds me of David James at times which is not a good thing. Full credit to Scunny they cut holes in us a few times last night. son_of_cher
I agree Sorenson made some excellent saves but let's not forget many of them were rebounds from his awful mistakes. He was appalling on crosses - which he always is - and, like James, a big mistake is always just around the corner Steve W
Agreed Sorensen had an iffy game, but he has been pretty good this season up until now particularly in last Saturday's game. Although Angel scored twice, he did miss a shed load of chances and with Baros hardly looking that great from the bench I would suggest that a centre forward may be high up the manager's shopping list. andrew144
Agree with Steve W. Sorensen looks world class one week and then the next he seems prone to losing concentration. Last night he created needless pressure on the defence by making poor decisions and poor clearances. Was disappointed with Baros too. He looks a long way from being match-fit and he was a yard too slow all the time. He also look completely un-interested in getting involved. DougInABox
I voted to change Sorensen in the recent poll, he has allot of qualities but he's far too inconsistent. I agree Taylor should be given a go and if by January we still don't have someone who looks steady then we should buy. we really haven't had an outstanding keeper since Bossier, Schmeichel was past it when he arrived, and Enkleman.....don't get me started! bobbyfett
