Newsflash - Keeper Required!

The official site has just explained that Villa have been given permission by the Premier League to take a keeper on loan because Stuart Taylor has had to undergo knee surgery which rules him out for the Christmas fixture lists.

With Thomas Sorensen also out injured Villa only have 20-year-old Austrian Robert Olejnik left as an option and he has no Premiership experience.

So the search is on for temporary cover. Crushing blow for Taylor who had to wait for an injury to Sorensen before he got a chance, this was meant to be his opportunity to make a claim for the No1 shirt. Get better soon Mr T and Mr S.

got to feel sorry for Taylor though, got his chance and picked up an injury. Hopefully it isn't too serious.

might be that a keeper not in our league would be needed, why would our competition help us out afterall?

Why not just give 2 of the youngsters a chance? We have plenty dont we? Olejink, W Henderson, S Henderson, others in the youth team.

Kasper Schmeichel :) @ I think that FA allows only England-based keepers for this kind of emergency loan, there are no border-cross players allowed. But I am not sure about it.

if we cannot have Shay Given then my shout would be Wayne Henderson, where is he?

Postma could be a good 'stop-gap'

You are right Majkee - he wanted Klos but cant have him because he is north of the border. From what I have heard Olejnik may be okay temporarily. Maybe Richard Wright if the Toffees are generous!!! Olejnik could tide us over until Jan 1st where Craig Gordon should be brought in. He is an excellent young player. Arsene Wenger said he would be a great Premiership keeper after the Scotland v France game.

We had this problem at Bournemouth a few years ago. Wish both keepers the best of luck in a speedy recovery. If you don't find a suitable keeper, try Marcus Browning - he was the answer to our problems!

Zuberbuhler at the baggies currently out of favour due to change of manager. has played 17 games this season . better than somebody who has been a bench polisher for years?

I'd play Olejnik in goal on Saturday, with the loan keeper, whoever he may turn out to be, on the bench, then take it from there. Young Olejnik has always looked a confident, capable keeper to me, and I've actually seen quite a bit of him, so lets give him a start and see how he handles it.
