Dwight Yorke Was The Best

Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by Geordie-Villa, who was our best striker over the last ten years?

Top of the tree was Dwight Yorke with 74%, we might not have forgiven his exit, but it is great to see we've not forgotten his ability!

Dion Dublin was second with 15% and the rest polled:

Juan Pablo Angel 7%
Stan Collymore 2%
Darius Vassell 1%
Savo Milosevic 1%

We'll follow this poll up with who was our best midfielders, defenders and I'll do one on keepers over the years as well. Ooooh, I can hardly contain my excitement, that said, I don't get out much!

Where,s Bosko?
silkie villain
I reckon savo come on and voted for him self.
chris the villan
savo is a great striker though, just couldnt handle the premiership, his international and national record speaks for itself....he was lame when playing for us though (well apart from the league cup final!)

Obviously Dwight now leaves a bitter sweet taste in the mouth, but you just can't forget how good he was for us over the years. He was a pure entertainer, he cheeky flicked penalties, sublime goals and even during the warm ups before games when he used to keep the ball on his head all the way from the holte to the tunnel! Great showman, great player, not a very nice person when the fame went to his head.
DeanoVilla
Its difficult to argue against Yorkie. Other strikers have shown their finishing ability in flashes, but Dwight always remained pretty consistent.

Dwight left a 'bitter-sweet taste' in a fair few people's mouths... especially those of the female variety!
Rawlie
Let's face it, we've only had two strikers in recent memory who put the fear of God into defenders - Yorke and Dean Saunders. In their prime, both were world-class.
Saurat
I agree yorke was the best weve seen in recent years, and I bet he wishes he'd never left, he would of been a legend by now.
eltoro
Yorkie was good but the one that fustrates me most was Dalien, the man had the lot but was too arrogant.
silkie villain
eltoro. i bet dwight really did regret it especially after he had the laborious task of playing in front of 60,000 people every week, lifting the european cup in the treble winning season and scoring 47 goals in under a hundred games. are you a careers advisor by any chance?
themightyatom
cough and splutter Rawlie! I agree on Dalien Atkinson, should have been a legend, he had so much ability it was untrue.
The Fear
Atkinson and Collymore. Two huge 'What might have beens'.
