'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Agbonlahor & Sutton Preferred

Vital Villa asked, in a polled suggested by Jonah, what is your preferred striker partnership amongst the currently fit players?

Gabriel Agbonlahor and Chris Sutton got nearly half of the votes with 43% wanting the speed and brawn combo.

28% said Gabby and Angel closely followed by Chris Sutton and Angel with 23%.

That left just 2% opting for:

Gabby and Baros, Angel and Baros or Sutton and Baros.

So it looks like Milan Baros has fallen from grace with the Villa fans. Nothing that a few goals couldn't cure though surely?

Experience and youth. The perfect combo? Wonder whether the opportunity will present itself so as we can see just how our preferred combination shapes up?

Does it sound like a prolific partnership thought ? Gabby's shone on the flank this season think we should keep him there for now.

What's the situation with Sutton'sinjury? He's certainly showed how it should be done to Baros & Angel. I hope we can move Baros on and sign someone decent.

Priceless macca,, for those who cant be ar*ed part of the article::: And he’s not an awful lot better known now. Quick? Check. Control? Reasonable, I suppose, but we didn’t get much chance to see it. Good in the air? Ummm… Strong? Yes, as long as no-one challenges him and it’s not windy. Good finisher? Yeah, right. Harsh perhaps. Perhaps we didn’t see the best of him; I very much doubt he’ll get a second chance at Vicarage Road. No, he will be unused substitute for Villa in a couple of Carling Cup ties, followed by a few loan spells before joining Walsall, then Kidderminster Harriers, then Nuneaton Borough. And then he’ll probably become a roofer. Go on then, Gabby, prove me wrong. JOB DONE IN MY OPINION.

Have to agree steff. Job definitely done and I bet the guy who wrote that article feels a bit stupid now! Seems strange how he can make such a judgement on one appearance, and if he'd bothered to look at Gabby's record for the youth and reserve teams at Villa, he might have had a different opinion about Gabby's finishing!

Aren't we Villa Fans wonderful -we cewrtainly know how to turn the knife! Baros is going through a bad patch at the moment. We need the best out of him, so we need to lift him more. Player's lack of confidence is a vicious circle -the lower it is, the worse they play, etc,etc. The fans support and encouragement is the only way to break this - so start "singing" his praises a few more times and get behind him (mistakes or otherwise and I guarantee you'll see a massive improvement.

My preferred option. Two new strikers in January. We have to so something, because the current collection dont seem capable of doing the business.
