Yorke Is Our Best Foreign Signing

Yorke Is Our Best Foreign Signing

Vital Villa asked, following a suggestion from message board member Fatloser, who is our best foreign signing (not including the Rep. Of Ireland, as obviously Paul McGrath would have wiped the board clean!).

Former Holte End hero Dwight Yorke won by a landslide with 70% of the votes. Seems, despite the acrimonous way he left, his footballing abilites and the fact he cost us nothing and raised significant funds with his sale, haven't been forgotten.

8% said Juan Pablo Angel, 7% went for Mark Bosnich and Milan Boros with 6% to Nielsen and only 2% to the badge kissing Alpay.

I might repeat the poll at a later date and add Olof Mellberg and Thomas Sorenson at the cost of Alpay and Nielsen.

Very suprised Bozzie didnt poll higher. Plenty of great memories from Yorkie yes, but what about Bozzie and those panalty saves? Never forget that tranmere semi-final.

Yorke was a great player for us, there is no denying it. He costs us nothing to sign, speaking metaphorically, and we sold him for £12+million. He scored some fantastic goals and lit up Villa Park. However I can never forgive him for his badge kissing antics for Manure.

Must admit, I wish Olof Mellberg had also been in the poll, maybe we'll do another one and discount some of the lower rated ones from this one. On the other hand, maybe we won't!

Nothing wrong with kissing the badge of the team you play for surely? I think sometimes we forget that no matter ow long a player plays for us if they aren't Villa fans born and bread then they never will have the same affinity that we have with the club. I never disliked Yorkie Bar for anything he did regrding Man utd. Its the Blues thing and his complete and utter arrogance that grind with me now.

Didn't say there was anything wrong Deano, just that he was a badge kissing player!?! I thought he was quality, shame it turned around so quickly after his agent stoked the fire.
