Elias Sorensen Gets Full 90 Minutes For Carlisle In EFL Trophy Defeat

Elias got just his second start for Carlisle United this evening in their 4-2 defeat in an EFL Trophy match against the Wolves U-21 team. Most importantly it was his first full 90 minute appearance. In his only other start against Scunthorpe in the league, Elias was pulled at half-time due to a tactical change.

While Carlisle ended up suffering a defeat, Elias did contribute on their second goal by Ryan Loft. That goal made it 2-2 just before the half but Carlisle was not able to capitalize in the second half.

It may not have been the best performance from Sorensen but he did get through the full match so that is something to be happy about.

One Carlisle fan on Twitter compared Sorensen to former Newcastle youth player Richard Offiong who also spent some time on loan at Carlisle. So we are not sure what to make of this performance but the fact that he made it through the full match is at least somewhat of a positive.

Let’s hope that Sorensen can build on this appearance and make something fruitful of his experience at Carlisle.

    The thing with Shelvey is it doesn’t matter if he is 100% fit or not he does not like getting pressed and either loses the ball in a tackle or starts to just hit first time balls as he starts to get ruffled!

    He then loses his head and pretty much can’t do anything its nothing to do with fitness he likes time on the ball but in the premiership you don’t ever get that time these days

    Me would put both the Longstaffes in
    if Ritchie not fit
    Need some energy in midfield to close down their midfield
    ie Maddison

    Bowen would be good in January and another ball winning give and go central midfielder with a decent range of passing, and we can move on Shelvey, Gayle and one of the right backs to help pay for them.

    While we’re about it, a bit of investment in the academy, the recruitment department and the training ground facilities and a commitment to keep on investing in infrastructure to grow the club and win a bit of silverware, and oh yeah, a good young progressive manager, or better, an established elite manager, like Rafa Benitez.

    Ludicrous idea I know.

    Agree with charlie@5,put the brothers in the middle and get closing the opposition down.May as well get them used to playing together in the first team now because it will pay off in Championship next season.Saying that I don’t think we will be coming straight back up next time.

    Need someone to stand on Maddison’s toes as he instigated the tackle that got Ritchie injured with his moaning antics in the cup game

    Playing the Longstaffs together sounds like a good idea whether it be the EPL or the Championship but it’s looking like ManU are planning another tempting offer to get Sean from us.

    So don’t be surprised if a certain someone doesn’t decide to cash in on him in January.

    In fact don’t be surprised if there’s not the mother of sales in January if we’re still in the clarts!

    V Leicester.
    ……Almiron….Joelinton….St Max.

    Best possible team when all fully fit.

    ……Almiron….Joelinton….St Max.

    Little difference between Almiron and Atsu, or Lascelles and Fernandez, or the right wing backs although I prefer Manquillo. Willems can adequately challenge Ritchie. Carroll most important to throw on in the last 20, and possibly to start once he is fully capable. Dummett’s very good, particularly defensively, but if we play the two hard working young ball winners in the middle of the park, as we must, then we do need Lejuene’s and Scharr’s passing from the back.
