Villa - Is Gabriel Our Angel?

Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by Wade Man, whether Gabriel Agbonlahor should be a first team regular next season?

77% said he should in eased in gently.
16% he should be used and 4% disagreed and said he shouldn't !

3% remain on the fence and declared they were undecided.

Our latest poll, suggested by Ulster Villa, asks what will happen to Roy Aitken when we get a new manager.

I quite like Roy atleast out of the two he shows an element of passion in his work, he is very animated even now when he doesn't have O'Learys hand up his **** pulling the strings. I believe O Leary would not have been able to operate without Roy at his side. He has also been able to keep the players motivated which has got to be an unenviable task considering the goings on at the moment. He is also doing a good job at the moment considering the fact that he knows that within a matter of days he could be out of a job. I think at least he should be kept on in some capacity other than manager when the new replacement comes in.

I think Gabby is more likely to be a Tony Daley than a JPA. I see him on the right wing. As for Aitken he needs to follow DOL out of the door as quick as possible. So what if we have beaten 3 teams from divisions lower than us in pre-season. He's a DOL kiss ass and will never win me over.

I didn't vote, but if I had it would've been to ease him in gently. I think he has the ability. Whether he's good enough to have a sustained Premiership career only time will tell, but from what I've seen he is more than able to do a job from the bench. Of course if (when?) the takeover happens this could all be a moot point because we'll probably be bringing in established stars.

I think he should be used, provides us with pace up front. If our established stars?! are performing, then fair enough. Its been said before but our players should do their talking on the pitch, I'm fed up with the overpaid prima donas acting as if they are gods gift after scoring a couple of goals or one or two good performances. The take over looks like it won't be in place for a while, so I think Aitken may be here at Christmas - by which time we'll be in a mess, he'll get the old sanish archer (and O'neil won't won't touch with a bargepole)

As soon as we get a new chairman and some cash to spend the young players will be forgotten. Shame but it's true.

Gabby's apparantly quicker than henry, bring him on for the last 30 mnutes of most games nad we'll see some results...imagine how scared the 30+ year old defenders will be when the see him warming up on the sidelines

The way Premier League games are played now pace seems to be an incresingly important element (just look at the players Liverpool have gone out and signed!). Even with a new chairman, a new manager and new players I still think Gabby will be an important part of the squad next season and he's the one Villa player I can see forcing his way into the England setup over the next couple of years

I'm still not fully convinced about young Agbonlahor, despite seeing him progress from the youth team to the fringe of the first team. Pace is without a doubt his number one attribute, but what happens when opposing team suss out the speed aspect of his game, which they will quickly do at premiership level. Does he have enough quality and variety in his game to face up to the challenge of becoming an established first team player? He certainly has an eye for goal, so that has to be a plus. A big season ahead of him.

Another season or two will tell if he's got real class or if he's a flash in the pan.
