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

Majority Say Laursen To Deputise

Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by villavillavilla:

Who should deputise as captain when Gareth Barry isn't available?

The majority, with 72% said Martin Laursen as he is 'inspirational'.

Next up was West Ham's former skipper Nigel Hokey-Cokey.

That left:

Olof Mellberg - former captain (8%)
Stiliyan Petrov - was Celtic captain under MON (2%)
Curtis Davies - WBA's former captain (1%)
Gabby Agbonlahor - local lad and all (1%)
Other (0%)

Our latest poll asks for your predictions for Villa's visit to Anfield. Win, lose or draw...?

I just saw hokey cokey on mtv cribs, he can never be captain, what a tit, I asked my bro if I can get my money back on for the ticket for the blackburn game (only a tenner ;-), I really dont fancy lining the pockets of someone who hangs about with his boys and plays playstation all day. My rant over, but not just hokey cokey but the rest of over paid footballers, over inflated wages wasted on someone who lets be honest can kick it better than someone else... im still ranting...i'll shut up
krisvilla
I'll put a tenner on Laursen, Mikey boy. Go on.

NRC Captain are these folks for real? The day he's made captain of my club I'm burning the season card!
Villan57
here here Villan57, mr laursen for sure

After Laursen signed the new deal there is only one candidate. Nige is too much of a moaner to be a captain. The job that MON has given him as a Makalele role is perfect. If only he would do this and keep his mouth shut and stop appearing on TV then would be much happier. Still squirming with embarressment after that Soljaboy dancing business.

my boy Big lips anton ferdinand....... cringe cringe cringe
krisvilla
afraid so i had a look before on the internet section and I think it were the north stand upper tiers that were ten and they all seem to be gone now, you gotta strike while the iron is hot
krisvilla
If Mellberg doesnt sign an extension he shouldnt really be captaining the side. I would have Barry (c) and Laursen (vc). 3rd choice probably NRC or even Bouma perhaps!!! He has a mouth on him at times!!!
deano.avfc
well i reckon your all wrong...its should be mr harewood...i do honest
claretandblue
Is Petrov worse that he was if he captained Celtic in the Champions League?! Because he hardly sets the world alight in his plight for Villa!
leelindsay
Got to be NRC. His abilities as a captain are beyond reproach. He's a born leader, and would be ideal as a stand-in for Gareth.
