Sorensen Wants Showdown Talks?

Sorensen Wants Showdown Talks?

Denmark international and Villa shot-stopper Thomas Sorensen is looking for talks with Martin O'Neill following the arrival of Scott Carson.

Speaking to Tipsbladet, a regular read in the Fear household you understand, he said:

'I have asked the manager for a meeting to find a solution and I expect to have it this week. I am focusing on the rehab and to getting back, that is the most important thing to me right now.' And it looks like he isn't too happy at the loan arrival of Scott Carson from Liverpool as he added, 'It seems somewhat strange that they spend a lot of money on him when we already have got two good keepers in the squad.'

Maybe Thomas doesn't remember the situation last season when both him and Taylor were out and we had to take an emergency loan in the form of Kirally! At the moment Sorensen has a hamstring injury and Stuart Taylor is struggling with groin problem!

What a ******! First sign of a bit of competition and he starts moaning and wants to leave! Maybe he should take a look at himself and stop making basic errors and then MON wouldn't even be looking for another keeper! It's good for no one if they are guarenteed a starting place. If I were MON I'll tell him to battle for his place or **** off! Guttless!
In MON we trust!

He seems past his best and too injury prone, Taylor looked as good on Sat and could get better with an extended run.

Well no surprise there. We knew that reaction was going to happen, and you can bet MON did too. Tommy has gotten way too comfortable in his role as our chief custodian. He certainly hasn't faced any real competition for his starting spot since he arrived at the club, and he's probably a pretty happy camper right now that he hadn't put pen to paper on a new extended deal. I suspect a parting of the ways is on the cards here, certainly at seasons end when his contract runs out, if not before. Ironically I'm far from convinced that Carson is an improvement on what we already had, but obviously MON doesn't view things that way.

Hopefully we will never have the misfortune of seeing that prat in a Villa shirt ever again

I agree, I'm not sure Carson is any better, but anyway, if Sorenson has any belief in his own ability, surely he should think this youngster is not having my shirt and show that he is the better keeper? Instead he is running away!
In MON we trust!

He was sitting two rows behind me on Saturday (yes in the North Stand Upper!) with some friends. He didn't seem the happiest of people and hardly even celebrated the goal we scored! Think he may be on his way out!

Ah well, so we have another foreigner that spits his dummy out when he gets upset. You'd think he was working for peanuts. I understand he was one of the main suspects behind the player's revolt last year because the Club lacked ambition - so there you go, he's still not happy.

Steady on lads, he has been an excellent servant for us. He shouldn't be moaning, he knows competition is healthy, but not so harsh please
