Sorryson, You Can't Leave.

Sorryson, You Can't Leave.

Martin O'Neill blocked any moves for Thomas Sorensen and has added he won't be allowed to leave on loan.

In an interview for the Express and Star, he said of the Denmark keeper, who has been out in the cold this season following the arrival of Scott Carson and comments he made that obviously upset the Villa boss when he didn't even make the bench after recovering from injury... sod me that was a long sentance:

Rumours suggested that Barnsley were in for him but O’Neill said: “There was absolutely nothing in it at all. There were Premier League teams who were interested in taking him, but it wasn’t going to happen. Barnsley might have approached Ian Storey-Moore, but I didn’t want Thomas to go.'

Adding, 'I didn’t want us to be in the situation we were in last season when we had no goalkeeper and had to loan Gabor Kiraly. I didn’t see that many clubs racing around to help us a year ago. So what was the point? We’ve got to get to the end of the season and we’ve got 12 games, so why put ourselves in a position like that where we might find ourselves short of cover?'

One thing is for sure, Sorensen won't be at Villa Park come the new season, it appears any player who crosses the manager and comes out in the press moaning gets short change from the boss. Just ask Luke Moore!

Sorensen's Villa Park days are well and truly over. The sooner he is out of here, the better for all concerned. Can understand the 'No' to a loan deal though. How does that benefit us as a club? It doesn't.

His fall from grace surprises me. In goal at Toronto pre-season, no sign of any new keepers arriving, gets injured, falls completely out of the picture. I still believe he's done a good job since arriving at Villa Park, and I genuinely believe that he's a better keeper than either Carson or Taylor.
