Alan Smith For Villa - Yes or No?

Alan Smith For Villa - Yes or No?

According to Shaun Custis of The Sun are battling to sign Manchester United striker Alan Smith in January.

To be fair we mentioned this link on October 31st as did many others, but Custis is one of the main football reporters so hopefully there is some substance.

Alan Smith Linked To Villa

The report has no quotes or direct information as to where the link has come from but does say O'Neill is keen to take the 26-year-old former England and Leeds striker to boost Villa's European credentials.

Middlesbrough, Newcastle and Everton are also interested, as are Championship clubs Cardiff, Leeds, Sunderland, Ipswich and Birmingham have also made enquiries.

Our latest poll asks if you would like Alan Smith at Villa. I'd love him if he has full recovered from his broken ankle, the man is a nasty snarling sort of player, the sort that gets stuck in and winds up the opponents. It has been a long time since we've had that sort and we desperately need some spice!

I think he is a winner and would add some real aggression to the team, what do you reckon?

You boys are 4th and playing well, why bring in a player that will WANT 1st team football and dirupt what you've got! AND where would you play him, midfield or Striker!?

Had to laugh at Cardiff's attempts at signing him though! As if he'll drop down a division instead of joining another Prem club as its obvious some will want to loan him.

striker Baldyyid and to be honest, Baros isn't doing the business and we need a bit of aggression up front. Him and Sutton would be a mean pair!

I just dont think Smith is very good. He's certainly not a 20 goals a season man which is what we are craving.

I think he carries too much bagage with enjuries, I like his gritty determination but he is too mouthy (instead of getting on with the game he spends too much time mouthing of at the ref, if the decission does not go his way) a bit like Robbie Keane

Not convinced this would be a good deal. Does not impress with United. Ok so he can snarl So what? What use is that of he is a restricted player - had enough of those in the past.

I think whatever M'ON wants is OK by me. I believe we have a manager with who we can have total confidence. No doubt he will make some mistakes, but then again who doesn't? If MON wants him, who are we to disagree? UTV
