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

Sorenson Happy With Form But Not Ref

Thomas Sorensen was happy with the result against Chelsea on Saturday but felt cheated by the awful Graham Poll who allegedly 'refereed' the game. On the subject of refs, our latest poll asks if the top four teams get preferential treatment. Ha, seamless link there!

Sorenson, who withstood a great deal of pressure from Chelski, told the official site:

'I thought we coped reasonably well. The first 15 or 20 minutes we were a little bit under the cosh. But then we came back, scored the goal and until they made the substitutions in the second-half, I thought we controlled it. But at the end we were under a bit of pressure. I was a tough game, but we could have won it in the end with Juan's chance, but it wasn't to be.'

On the Chelsea goal that never should have stood he added: 'It was a cross coming in and I had three players on top of me. I caught the ball and John Terry just went straight into me. I thought it was a blatant foul. I don't think the referee gave us much throughout the game. When Juan was through and he was fouled, it could have been a red card. There were a few other incidents in the game which could have cost us, so it was not his best game.'

He also says he was happy with the way he performed and that 'it would have been a crime if we hadn't come away with at least a point. Everyone was fantastic.'

wise words mate! on sky sports they must all be chelsea fans because i heard it that he'd dropped the cross, i thought 'here we go again, great shot-stopper but dodgy on crosses'. after watching MOTD and watching a frankly breathtaking display of cat like reflexes and also seeing that he didnt drop it, it was a foul, that tommy is fast becoming one of the best keepers in the premiership. i voted to change him in the recent poll. i will of course now take my hat, saute it with a nice sauce, bake it for 40 mins and then eat it. we could have lost quite significantly but for tommy. you da man.

It takes a big man to admit he was wrong, enjoy the hat. Tom was outstanding and has been since the start of the season (bar the occasional blip, which we luckily have gotten away with) the chat is that he has already reached the point of being one of the best goalies in the prem. damn right he da man.

and is still young for a keeper, so plenty of time for him to peak.

Is anyone not at least 50% better? McCann must have a double cos he's playing so good. Ridgewell, Mellberg, Angel (if he was a natural finisher he'd be topping the prem) and boys on the wing. My wife won't let me have a plasma (cos I watch too much footy) so I got no chance of a threesome.

The above comment appears a little out of context cos I forgot It was to do with the 'feel good factor' story. Just thought I'd point that out.

Thank god you added that latest post Gaz, I suddenly thought the site had been taken over by swingers and I'd missed the chance to get rid of my missus and buy a plasma.
