Vorm or Tremmel? That is the Question Photo by Ram Kausik

The whole of the Swansea City squad is waiting for their favorite goal keeper- Michel Vorm, to return. After the disastrous show at the Dutch International Championships, all they want is some salve on their bruises. And Vorm’s comeback after a full recovery of his torn groin muscle could be just the thing they need. But Michael Laudrup, Swansea squad manager, is slightly reluctant to break out the champagne bottles for victory celebrations.

Lately, he has been plagued by a dilemma that has put him in quite a spot with the team arrangements. Swansea City current goal keeper- Gerhard Tremmel presence in the team now looms about Laudrup like a pregnant question. For the last eight weeks or so, when Vorm was out of goalie business owing to his injury, Tremmel had stepped in to fill Vorm’s position as the goal keeper and how. To keep a long story short, Tremmel’s more than impressive performance was instrumental in helping the club move up the Premier League ladder in to the Top 10.

To make matters worse, Michel Vorm is back in full swing and training away to glory, hoping for an early release from the sidelines. Laudrup is in no position to choose; on one hand he has the club’s ol 'faithful- Vorm who is a penalty saving machine and on the other hand, there is this new comer who exhibited amazing skills in the first chance that he got. If one were to make a detailed comparison between both the players’ experience, goals saved and other sundries, unfortunately, Gerhard Tremmel’s statistics would come up short. Besides that, Gerhard Tremmel profile is not quite as established in the club as Vorm’s even though the player is thirty four years of age. So when you tally up the points and factor in the age of the respective players, it is not a surprise that Tremmel will have to lose the Keeper’s jersey to Vorm.

But all hope is not lost for Tremmel yet. Laudrup has expressed his desire to keep the German goal keeper in the team. Tremmel is in the last year of his contract and Laudrup intends to renew the deal for another year. Ludrup has also expressed that the choice is entirely Tremmel’s as he might want to try in a club that requires his service immediately. After all, being a second goal keeper doesn’t warrant much action on field.
