'If It's Football, It's Vital'

A Tale Of Two Villa Keepers

Stuart Taylor has told the official site of his frustration at conceding the late goal that earnt Liverpool a draw v Villa.

He said, 'It doesn't matter than an ex-Villa man scored. We had done well to dig in and get ahead and we were gutted to not pick up maximum points. It was one of those things that a former claret and blue man should score the equaliser. I wanted him to smash it and hit it well because that gives you a chance to save. Unfortunately, he looped it and it floated over into the goal.'

He also says he was happy to play: 'I haven't had that many chances to play but with Scott coming here on loan from Liverpool it meant I got the opportunity. The atmosphere is always great and it's a wonderful venue to play football at. The lads showed great character in the second half and defensively, I thought Curtis Davies was magnificent. He headed everything and blocked shots all over the place.'

He also added that he wasn't sure if it was him or Thomas Sorenson who would play on the night explaining; 'We only find out the team when we get into the dressing room before each match. The manager keeps things close to his chest. I was half-expecting to play and knew I had to perform well on the day.'

Meanwhile Alex Miller, a coach at Liverpool has been speaking to Liverpoolfc.tv about Scott Carson saying the loan to Aston Villa has helped bring the player on. Miller said: 'I think Scott's been really good for Villa this season. He's still a young player but he's been showing more maturity, and he's getting better. What player doesn't make a mistake or two? He's still learning but I think he's got a good future.'

Does Miller mean a future at Liverpool or at Villa. I have to say if the reported acceptable fee is 10m best the permanent signing is not made. I know I will get ridiculed but if the reports that Robinson is about to hand in a transfer request at Spurs are true, how much would they want for him with his stock currently so low. He has lost confidence of that there is no doubt, but is he finished? David James has suffered in the past but for the last three years has been extremely consistant. If Robinson is available say for 5m is he really half the Keeper Scott Carson is.... particularly if he has a point to prove

I'd go fro Robinson. Ok he's ina bit of a slump but all players go through that and he is proven quality, Carson is not.

Good point but Carson is young at the start of his career and that is the sort of player MON wants.

10m for a keeper is stupid though. I feel like we're having the ***** taken out of us. I bet if the deal goes through Rafa and his lads will be giggling their arse's of at us. I say we just wait till the end of the season and take that lad off Sunderland, he wont want to be playing in the championship surely.
PTP
Yes, but Sunderland would obviously want 10m plus for him PTP, and in your own words you've declared that that amount of cash for a keeper is stupid. When we were up at Sunderland a few weeks back, enjoying a post match beverage with three Sunderland fans, all three admitted that Craig Gordon had been a big disappointment. Admittedly he's now back in the starting line up, but even so.

Keeper is the most important position in my eyes and experience is a must, we can't afford to hang around waiting to see if Carson may or may not progress . Robinson is a good shout , he hasn't suddenly become a bag of nerves overnight , it's not that he'd have much to do with our back 4 in front of him is it?
Villan57
Is Robinson a better bet than Carson 57? I'm not so sure he is. I think we'd be taking as big a chance on him, as we would on completing a permanent signing for Scott Carson. Fact is, there aren't too many good ones out there, and particularly good ones who are available.
glensider
I don't get all of the Carson doubting. Yes, he can look edgy at times, and he needs to learn to catch the ball occasionally, but he's been solid all season, and last season he was one of few highlight in a dismal season for Charlton. Give the guy a break. When he "pulls a Robinson", *then* we can all start being fickle and demanding his head.
