Goalkeeper Issues for Martin
Aston Villa manager Martin O’Neill is still mulling over his goalkeeping options, or so he says.
With Scott Carson missing the Bolton match, O’Neill is yet to decide whether to turn to current number 2 Stuart Taylor, or give Thomas Sorensen a shot following his reserve team clean sheet.
O’Neill spoke to avfc.co.uk on the matter: “Stuart has been the number two because Thomas got injured in pre-season and now he's fit. He played on Monday night for the reserves; he played for his country last week.
“Countering that, Stuart came on last Saturday and did very well.”
I think we’re all expecting Taylor to be honest, leaving Thomas Sorensen to see if he can overcome Arsenal’s bonkers 3rd choice shot stopper Jens Lehmann in the “bad PR” stakes when it comes to lack of opportunities.
