Vorm over Emirates error

Vorm was involved in a mix-up with defender Angel Rangel which led

to Andrey Arshavin’s winning goal at the Emirates Stadium on

Saturday. The Dutch keeper, who has excelled since his arrival at

Swansea this summer, tried to throw the ball out to Nathan Dyer,

but caught the heel of Rangel allowing the ball to fall to the feet

of Arshavin who scored from an acute angle. Vorm admits he is to

blame for the error, but he is adamant that he is already over the

whole episode. “I caught the ball and I made eye contact with

Nathan, but just before I was about to throw he said he didn’t want

it when I was already in the movement and I couldn’t stop myself,”

said Vorm. “Arshavin finished it well because I didn’t think it was

an easy chance but it’s still sad because it was unnecessary. It

wasn’t long before half-time and if you go in at half-time 0-0

maybe the second half would be a little different. “It’s

disappointing, but personally the mistake won’t bother me.” Vorm

felt his side were unlucky to lose to Arsenal and he concedes they

need to start taking their chances if they are to start winning

games. “We’ve now played four matches and we haven’t scored. We’ve

lost two and drawn two, but after the goal I gave away I think we

had some good chances,” added Vorm. “In the first three games we

also missed a lot of chances. Chances in the Premier are few so if

you don’t score, you don’t get much from games. “And we had chances

again here. We played Arsenal and everyone knows they are a big

team, but we were so close.”
