Young Voted MON's Best Signing

Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by Lions82,

Who is Villa's best signing under Martin O'Neill?

The winner, by some margin, was winger Ashley Young with 51% of the votes. No shock there then, this season he has come on leaps and bounds and looks like a real handful for any defence in the league.

Next up came summer arrival from West Ham Nigel Reo-Coker with 21%.

That left Stiliyan Petrov with 9% and the rest, (bearing in mind it is much too soon to judge really!) got:

Maloney (jan 07) (8%)
Carson (jul/aug 07) (4%)
Carew (jan 07) (3%)
Knight (jul/aug 07) (1%)
Davies (jul/aug 07) (1%)
Other (the small name signings) (1%)
Harewood (jul/aug 07) (1%)

We'll ask this again later in the season and compare results. Betcha can't wait!

Gardner did very well against Liverpool, attacking, flair players will always get the crowd on their feet.

im shocked; Petrov, who voted for him and harewood? Maloney has been a better buy than both and well priced too

wasn't Young a bit of a slow starter?
merlin
Sure was Merlin, but he is picking up pace now.Ask Belletti...how fast he has come on now?( you asked for that!) UTV
OneloveVilla
Merlin got a lot of stick when he first come.
Dannygav
AY that is, not Merlin!!!

No surprise in the poll result then, with our Ash a clear winner despite other impressive individual showings. How long will it be I wonder before we have to start worrying about our chances of keeping him at the club? A sobering thought really.

i voted for reo-coker. he has added some much needed aggression to our midfield
fullygrownman
Yes, come seasons end fullygrownman, you have to expect that Nigel Reo-Coker will have made a huge Villa Park impression. He's certainly looked the business so far.
