A New Keeper Now A Priority?

A New Keeper Now A Priority?

Thomas Sorensen will miss the season opener against Liverpool due to a hamstring injury.

Not the best start to the season for the Denmark international, there again if reports are to be believed, Villa are in the market for a new shot stopper anyway, so maybe he wouldn't have started regardless?

Sorensen, who only has a year left on his contract, will be out for 3-4 weeks so a new keeper arriving seems even more likely now. The ex-Arsenal keeper Stuart Taylor will currently be next in line.

Sorensen told avfc.com:

'This is the first time I have sustained this sort of injury. I placed the ball to take a goal kick and just felt my left hamstring go. I don't really know what caused it. Perhaps the fact the ball was very hard, that we were playing on synthetic turf, may have contributed.'

Adding: 'I really feared the worst at first, but the physio is happy with my progress and I may need three to four weeks out. That would almost certainly rule me out of the Liverpool game, but I hope I will be fit around a week after that.'

You have to love player statements "Perhaps the fact the ball was very hard". I mean, do they use different balls around the world, some made of rock and others out of leather pumped up with air.

It sorta forces MONs hand now, if he had any inclination towards a new keeper then its a must after this. As long as he doesnt think a certain Hungarian keeper is "good value for money" :-(

Taylor did o.k. on Saturday evening, called into action several times thanks to poor defending in front of him, but yes, in my opinion a new keeper is a must. Dont think MON is overly impressed with either Tommy or Stuart, so hopefully he wont keep dragging his feet on bringing a quality keeper into the club.
