Loan Update – Forward Continues to Show Signs, Keeper Struggles, And Defender Helps Keep Another Clean Sheet



Elias Sorensen has added a goal and an assist to his season tallies over the past two matches for Almere City. On Tuesday, Elias started at Helmond Sport in a 2-1 defeat. In the 24th minute, the young striker should have scored when a cross found him a few feet from the goal. He one-time it straight to the keeper’s feet in what was a poor effort from Elias.

Helmond Sport scored a few minutes later to make it 1-0 at halftime. They added a goal late in the second to give them a comfortable 2 goal lead. Sorensen was able to help bring one back with an assist on a corner in the 86th minute. Elias was at the near post and flicked the ball on from the corner to Thomas Verheydt, who headed it in to make it 2-1 which ended up being the final score.

Today, Almere City had a better time of it with a 4-2 win at FC Oss. Sorenson was brought on in the 82nd minute just after Almere City had taken a 3-2 lead. Elias put the match out of reach, albeit deep into stoppage time, with his 4th goal of the season. The win moves Almere City back into 2nd in the Dutch second division.

Freddie Woodman and Swansea had an afternoon to forget at Huddersfield today. The score was tied 1-1 at halftime but the second half was a different story. The Terriers scored three goals in a seven-minute surge to seal all three points. Woodman could do nothing about the goal in the first half but reacted late on a long-range strike from Lewis O’Brien in the 48th minute.

Swansea’s defense then did Woodman no favors on the third goal just 4 minutes later as they failed to clear a speculative long ball that eventually was played into the path of Duane Holmes. The striker retrieved the pass and blasted the ball past the helpless Woodman, who did get a hand on the shot but not enough to keep it out. Holman then scored his second in two minutes with a beautiful strike from very deep that flew into the far corner.

The defeat keeps Swansea in 4th in the Championship table as Watford jumped them yesterday with a 2-1 win over Derby. This was the first time Swansea had conceded more than two goals in the league this season.

Kelland Watts and Plymouth continued their unbeaten streak with a 0-0 draw at Rochdale today. It was the third straight clean sheet for Kell and the Pilgrims as they remain undefeated in the last nine league matches.

Watts was handed his 35th straight start today as he put in an excellent display at Spotland, where Newcastle were held to a 1-1 draw in the FA Cup last season. Kelland had 116 touches while attempting 99 passes. He had 6 clearances to go with winning 6 aerial duels. He was also fouled five times by Rochdale.

The point moves Plymouth to 10th place, which is quite admirable considering they were just promoted back to League One this past season. They have turned their season around after a 6 match losing streak in November/December. They are five points behind Sunderland, who occupy the final promotion place. Sunderland did defeat Burton Albion 3-0 away today. I hope they enjoyed that.

    Fulham should change their spelling to Full-loan. They have 6 loan players on the pitch.

    Sheffield United want out

    Fulham want in

    Newcastle Utd are doing the hokey kokey

    Bet we get Wilder to replace Bruce

    Nothing short of a win at Old Trafford can save Bruce otherwise he’s toast.

    Its not a nightmare its a dream
    Hope fulham hold out
    Sorry but its the only way to get rid of the cabbage
    What do you want 17th again the useless turd in charge next season with a remit to again play for 17th
    I realise most on here couldn’t give a monkeys where nufc finish as long as they can get there pasty pint then moan on there grey plastic seat at sjp
    Well sod you lot nufc needs relegating hopefully the fat pig will sell and a rebuilding program can begin with a manager who realises its 2021 and plays the game how it should be played
    Most of you lot have as much ambition as bruce your just 20 years older than him and will settle for any old dross he dishes up
    Nine minutes to go just for you Essex come on parkers boys

    Cabbage can’t lose tomorrow night. We get beat he may get sacked with a nice payout. We win he gets hailed as a genius. Only downside for him is his beloved Manure dropping points.

    Ashley must grasp the nettle tomorrow and sack Clueless AND his six assistants and swallow his pride and get Rafa back . Offer him a contract to end of the season and to pay him £10/20M if he keeps us up. If he won’t come offer the same deal to Eddie Howe.
    Can the deluded business man not see he is playing a game of financial suicide. I couldn’t care less if he loses his fortune but he must act now to save our once great club because it certainly won’t be a quick fix back to the Premiership this time. Its also time Ashley, Staveley and the fecking Premier League Management committee started to get honest with the loyal NUFC fans . This would never have happened with Man City , Man Utd , Liverpool , Chelsea , Spurs or Arsenal. Its a fecking disgrace.

    Can we win the next three : Wolves, West Brom and Aston Villa. Answer NO not with this Clueless Clown in charge. Where are the goals going to come from?
    Anyone any ideas.

    Mund – meant in general rather than tonight – everyone should be talking and worried about Fulham winning and closing the gap to 3 with a better goal difference – they have a head is steam and the only steam we have is coming out if Bruce’s ears when anyone tells him he isn’t doing a good job
