62% Say Villa Need A Striker

62% Say Villa Need A Striker

Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by Lee Lindsay, what type of player do Villa need to buy in the January transfer window?

62% said a striker.

22% an attacking midfielder/winger.

7% said a full back

3% said a full back despite the fact we have Olof Mellberg, Gary Cahill, Liam Ridgewell and when fit Mark Delaney and Martin Laursen.

3% said we needed a new keeper.

Our latest poll, suggested by Christo asks if Gary Cahill should be tried up front! The strikers should certainly watch what he does and try the same, you never know, in that case they might actually SHOOT!

No offence Christo but I take it your suggestion for Cahill up front is tongue in cheek? We have a player who looks like he could be our answer to John Terry and you want to start playing him out of position? Not in a million years! Maybe he could just teach Baros and Angel to shoot in training instead?

He's Definately one for the future, loves to get forward and has wicked shot and seems very clam despite being only 20 odd......He's handled himself very well over the past 2 weeks against 2 of the strongest high ball merchants going

We need a wingers more than strkers....we have 5 strikers and only 1 winger in Barry (Gabby has been covering on the right and causes much more trouble up front). Im sure MON will go straight after some pace and crossing ablility for both wings in Jan.

Surprised it was only 62%. The evidence has been there for all to see, all season long.

It came to my mind the way he shoots and stuff that maybe he should be given a chance up front he may turn out to be the next Alan Shearer or he may suck you all decide. I may be wrong maybe he wont do well

Cahill is going to be a wondeful player. Like Deano says, he could be our answer to John Terry. Defensively he is excellent, he reads the game well, strong in the air, good with the ball at his feet and knows where the goal is. He is too much of an asset in defence to think about putting him up front. What is all this square pegs in round holes nonesense

I think we need a striker AND a creative, attacking midfield player. No good buying a striker without some quality in midfield to get the ball to them.

About the Cahill thing..remember, Sutton started as a centre half, so who knows, might be worth a try.

I thought we had already sorted out that Ridgewell was going to be our next player to go upfront.......hang on a minute.......maybe it could be a new striking partnership! I think this whole discussion goes to show how much we are crying out for a striker of some quality to give us the 20 goals plus per season. Its been a long time (Angels one off aside).
