Laursen Walks It As Man-of-match

Laursen Walks It As Man-of-match

Vital Villa asked for your man-of-the-match vote following the 0-0 with Newcastle and quite rightly, Martin Laursen walked it with 68% of the vote!

Next up came our new midfield engine Nigel Reo-Coker, the Hokey Cokey got 21%.

Others that got a vote:

Scott Carson (4%)
Craig Gardner (3%)
Ashley Young (1%)
Stiliyan Petrov (1%)
Gabby Agbonlahor (1%)
John Carew (1%)

And those who didn't record a vote:

Luke Moore (0%)
Gareth Barry (0%)
Olof Mellberg (0%)
Wilfred Bouma (0%)

We also asked for result predictions with 59% saying draw, 22% predicting a loss and 19% saying a win.

Our other poll last week was asking which right-back we should buy, the results were:

Bosingwa (60%)
Hoyte (25%)
Glen Johnson (6%)
Rosenior (4%)
Other (3%)
Bardsley (2%)

Our latest poll is asking what you think about John Carew.

He had no competition. Good, battling, all-round team performance, but Martin Laursen was simply outstanding.

As good a performance I've seen from someone in a Villa shirt.

Laursen was simply the best on the ground. The duel between him and vaduka was great to watch. Of the rest I think Bouma was excellant. On another day a MOTM Performance for me.

Laursen is a world class defender, only Nesta and Maldini kept him on the bench at Milan, which isn't something to be ashamed of. If he stays fit, he's worth 20 points a season. Bouma looked good, bit of first game nerves last week, but seems to have got back into it, outstanding at left back, even when he made a mistake, he rtectified it instantly. NOW SIGN A RIGHT BACK MON< AND SOME COVER FOR THESE GUYS, PLEASE !!!!!!

Laursen is the best player to don the claret and blue since McGrath i think with his dodgy knee maybe making him train less would benefit him.

Laursen seems to thrive in a more physical match so i can see where the McGrath link comes from chris.I thought he had a great game........Keep it up !! :-)

laursen was simply superb simple as.reo coker also excellent and proving MON has produced a shrewd piece of business snapping him up,improves the side so much from the days of mccann although he was disappointing last week against scousers.

There were a lot of quality individual showings in what was a very good team performance. Agree that both NRC and Freddie deserve mentions, they gave their all, in what at times got to be a really competitive battle.

I agree that Laursen was man of the match. To be honest, I think that Petrov had an exacellent game as well as NRC. He got through a lot of work and made some very nice runs off the ball without being picked out. Also, his cross-field pass to Carew in the second half was a game-winner, if only Carew knew how much time and spece he had!!
