Sorensen Set for Reserve Outing

Sorensen Set for Reserve Outing

3rd choice goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen (remember him?) is set for a rare appearance in an Aston Villa shirt as he starts tonight’s reserve team fixture.

The Danish international and last year's first choice keeper at Villa Park has seen his chances of competitive football completely spurned as manager Martin O'Neill put all his trust into the loan of Liverpool’s Scott Carson for first team goalkeeping duties.

Midfielders Wayne Routledge and Patrik Berger (remember him?) and Moustapha Salifou are the other experienced players in an otherwise youthful line-up to face Spurs Reserves at Leyton Orient’s Brisbane Road ground this evening.

Villa Reserves Squad: Sorensen, Hogg, Earls, Lichaj, Lund, D.Bellon, Salifou, Routledge, Clancy, Y.Bellon, Berger. Subs: Bradley, Bevan, Forrester, Albrighton

Simply not good enough for a team chasing top six, the sooner he leaves the better!!! He will probably return to Denmark or play for Walsall next season cause he certainly is not good enough for this club and cant see too many Premiership clubs wanting to sign him, maybe he could join Rangers or Celtic, they are full players who are not good enough for the Premiership!!

Agree entirely but is young Scott ready for this role Y_J ? Good performance at the weekend but he hasn't exactly set the midlands alight.

No but hes got all the time in the world to improve and he's certaintly shown promise in (some) games this season.

hasnt set the midlands alight? when he first arrived, he was THE top goalkeeper under DOL in the EPL. always ranked first on Actim GK list. he even had a good WC in 2006. this felling out with MON was a really bad move from Sorensen. im gonna miss him. one of the best Villa keepers ive seen, even more impressive then Carson.

i aggree, i cant see for one minute how carson has been an improvement on sorensen........ IMO carson was at fault again for the goal at the emirates, as he was glued to his line !!

Attack me for saying this if you like, but I still believe Sorensen is a superior keeper to Carson and I have yet to see anything to make me change my mind. If anything, what I have seen has just confirmed my view!

Can't understand why so many fans turned on Sorensen, he wasn't the most commanding but he is a good shot stopper. Sounds a bit like Carson now I come to think of it, although Carson is a lot younger and still learning.

Fear - in my, personal, limited, own view, I would say that fans have turned on Tommy because it seems to be "you are either pro-Tommy or pro-MON". A situation has arisen where to praise Tommy you lay yourself open to accusation of being anti-MON. Just my view, though.
