Loan Keeper Leaves Villa Park.

Loan Keeper Leaves Villa Park.

The loan spell of Gabor Kiraly has ended after first and second choice Villa keepers, Thomas Sorensen and Stuart Taylor, both making 'great strides' to be fit to take on Manchester United tomorrow.

Martin O'Neill said on the official site: 'The two of them trained this morning and are making great strides, so Gabor will return to Palace a match earlier than expected. We're grateful to him and to Crystal Palace for their help in what has been a difficult time for us. We'll leave it until tomorrow to decide whether Thomas or Stuart will start at Old Trafford.'

Phew! ;-)

Helped us out of a hole, the sad thing is people wont remember the clean sheet against Chelski only the Ole Gunner goal at Old Trafford when in reality there was not a defender close enough to put in a challenge.

Glad our keepers are back though. Since Sorensons injury we've shipped in a shed load of goals.

You made a bit of a cockup against Manchester United but all I can say is thanks Gabor. You provided us with great entertainment. Silly trousers and a couple of cracking saves. I do worry about "fit" goalkeepers. Is this like Petrov who was apparently "injured."

What can you say? Certainly helped us out of a hole. Arrived with a dubious reputation, and certainly did nothing to convince me that he hadn't earned that tag. Feel a whole lot better now that our two guys are back in action.

I've got to say thanks but come on guys - he was crap - and lets face it - what was his motive - a chance to get away from Palace? He didn't come to Villa on a charity case. Why couldn't we have had him on the bench and played the beast instead? We have had to rely on everyother youth team player this season.

The choice was to play a proven prem player (even if one with a 'reputation' -- like many other GKs) or a totally unproven youngster. Apart from needing experience over our recent run of very tough matches, it would not have done Olejnik much good to be thrown into the fray too soon. Keepers are not like other players. If a defender or a midfielder makes a mistake through inexperience, people moan and forget it. If the Beast had made a mistake like the one Kiraly made, it would have been remembered for ever. In my opinion, good on you MON for sparing the Beast for another day, when he isn't up against Chelski or Manure.

P.S. To ask about Kiraly's motive for coming to Villa is like asking why any of us go to work. Of course his career is tops - what do you expect? But it doesn't make him a bad bloke and it doesn't change the fact that he appeared to give 100% and do what was his 'best'. It seems a bit churlish to moan at him now. Just let him go back to Palace with our thanks.
