Vital Villa asked:
With constant links, would you like Jermain Defoe at Villa?
Yes please (46%)
No thanks (44%)
Jon.H said: I don't personally think Defoe offers us anything that we haven't got already. I think, with all the apparent disarray at Newcastle, we should have a punt on James Milner before they sack Allardyce and get Shearer in.
Villan444: Good call Jon. He should be top of MON's list. Another young Brit too. Luke and Harewood need to be swapped for someone who is already World Class proven. Defoe is a one trick pony who will shoot on site where ever he is on the pitch and can't run with it unlike Gabby but MON won't want his attitude disrupting things surely.
davedlvilla: I agree about Defoe I think that Gabby now is arguably as good and in another season will be better. I also think Milner and Kitson are worth a try but I am not sure either Newcastle or Chelski will sell. A right back we do need and I guess is top of the list.
Phartman87, a Spurs fan, said: Despite the reputation he seems to have picked up as a bit of a diva he's never rocked the boat at spurs and has always said the right things, even though his once bright future has been confined to the bench for a year and a half. People question his ability and workrate but the guy definitely knows where the back of the net is, 18 goals last year (from the bench) and on course for a similar amount this term. With young, carew, barry, gabby and co he'd bang in 15-20 goals a season easy. (Although i want to keep him) if you do buy a striker you could do alot worse.
Glensider added: The way he put away the Spurs equaliser this evening suggests to me that he'd be quite an asset here at B6. Agree with Phartman87. He knows how to finish.
I must admit the way he finished against us on Tuesday just shows what quality he is, he only had the one chance all game but he took it with no messing around!
