Vital Villa asked what Villa fans thought of Peter Crouch now he has become a Liverpool and England striker. Villa bought Crouch from Portsmouth for over £6million during Graham Taylor's second stint as manager but he was sold at a huge loss to Southampton (£2m) when David O'Leary joined 3 seasons ago (is it really only 3 seasons? Seems soooo much longer!).
34% were clever so-and-so's who said we should have kept him and I said so.
18%, including me, said in hindsight we should have kept him.
19% voted for the option '£2m? What were you thinking O'Leary?
Just 1% said he is a great striker and 4% said he is an average striker. (Might ask that again after the World Cup depending on how well he does for us!)
Just 24% felt Villa were right to sell him.
They might have been right to sell him but not to have a sell on clause so we got a percentage of the £7million fee that Liverpool paid Southampton was total negligence and if the fans are shareholders had more about them, should have led to strong calls for the board to resign for costing the club even more than the £4million original loss we made on him.
Our current poll is asking is Peter Crouch the coolest dancer on the planet? No, not really, it relates to old Dougy boy.
