I thought Sorensen made some excellent saves again, But, he is also prone to some basic mistakes. I personally think he is a weakness in the side.

I always feel sorry for keepers, they can make a string of excellent saves, but if they make one mistake in the match, conceed a goal, everybody is on his back. Is there a single keeper in the world who never makes mistakes?

Sorenson is an excellent shot stopper, shame he lacks conviction in everything else. His distribution and judging crosses has been poor for a over a year now, i think its time for Taylor to have a go. Even though Tommo pulled off some fabulous sves last night he could have easily cost us the game, he reminds me of David James at times which is not a good thing. Full credit to Scunny they cut holes in us a few times last night.

im so glad City, Boro and Fulham lost last night too! it could make our journey to the finals that little bit easier. LETS HOPE MANURE, CHELSEA, LIVERPOOL AND ARSENAL GET DRAWN TOGETHER NEXT ROUND

I agree Sorenson made some excellent saves but let's not forget many of them were rebounds from his awful mistakes. He was appalling on crosses - which he always is - and, like James, a big mistake is always just around the corner

Agreed Sorensen had an iffy game, but he has been pretty good this season up until now particularly in last saturday's game. Although Angel scored twice, he did miss a shed load of chances and with Baros hardly looking that great from the bench I would suggest that a centre forward may be high up the manager's shopping list.

Agree with Steve W. Sorensen looks world class one week and then the next he seems prone to losing concentration. Last night he created needless pressure on the defence by making poor decisions and poor clearances. Was disappointed with Baros too. He looks a long way from being match-fit and he was a yard too slow all the time. He also look completely un-interested in getting involved.

i voted to change sorensen in the recent poll, he has alot of qualities but he's far too inconsistent. i agree taylor should be given a go and if by january we still dont have someone who looks steady then we should buy. we really haven't had an outstanding keeper since Bossie, Schemicheal was past it when he arrived, and Enkleman.....dont get me started!

Baros looked like he was carrying a few extra pounds last night, he needs to start showing more commitment. If Angel gets a bit of luck we will have our 20 goal a season striker..i think he's hit the bar 4 times already this season , he could almost be in double figures already

I've never seen a goal written as ' missed pen, got rebound ' before! Very graphical!
