Best Defender In Last 10 Years?

Best Defender In Last 10 Years?

Vital Villa asked if we should enter the Inter-Two-Bob Cup?

52% were unsure and said they'd leave it to Martin O'Neill.

34% said we should and that they love summer games.

That left 14% saying no, we need to qualify through the league or cup.

Our latest poll asks who our best defender has been over the last ten years (God does just about squeeze in as he left in 1996 but we decided it was daft to put him in the running as the result would be obvious!)

Maybe after all these polls we can put together a 'Team of the Decade' based on the results? Who were the strikers? Yorke and Angel?

Be interesting to see the results, I was going to take Ridge off and put 'other' as Ridge is just starting really. Hopefully him and Cahill will be the future. Shame for Laursen as well but he's not had enough time on the pitch due to his bad luck with injuries.

yeah, will have to keep the thread going on the forum for polls, I like the one by Beefy as well asking which of our young players will be the best, I'll get that one done at some stage.

It would seem that the great bearded one is going to run away with this one, desevedly so IMHO, Villa seem to have a good habit of having a great defence most of the time, and yes a good idea to work through the positions to vote for the greatest "team" well we have to do something now there is nothing to moan about, (apart from how long it is taking to sort out "The statue of Fear" for the toilets) : ) UTV

Alan Wright aka the crazy peanut, already has the award the worlds smallest defender. I was always a fan of his

bobbyfett. It is an old story and the video is now about three years old. Stefan was offered the 'original' for £20,000 but declined and that is how everybody got to see it. At the moment though he is having nothing thrown at him because he has had a career threatening leg break. I wish him all the best but he should have known that the the Bourneville Boulevard is a one way street.
