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

Who Would You Most Like To See At Villa?

Vital Villa asked in our last poll if you'd like to see James Milner back in a Villa shirt.

Looks like the vast majority would with only 10% saying no and 2% being unsure.

That left 71% yes, if the price was no more than 7million and a further 17% voting 'yes, at any price'.

So there you go!

Our latest poll asks, of all the players we've been linked with, (well, not all as there have been millions and I can only fit in so many for this poll) who would you like to see the most?

Blackburn's David Bentley, Chelsea's Steve Sidwell or Shaun Wright-Phillips, Liverpool and England striker Peter Crouch, one of the following Spurs boys, Pascal Chimbonda, Aaron Lennon, Paul Robinson or Tom Huddlestone. Newcastle winger James Milner, or maybe Barcelona and former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry. Manchester City defender Richard Dunne, Reading's Nicky Shorey or even Eidor Gudjohnsen?

On the very remote basis that either might want to play more than they will at Man U - Scholes or Giggs for a glorious Indian Summer ala Paul McGrath

I'm sorry but anyone who says they wouldn't want Henry @ VP is mad!! He is still 100 times better than the strikers we currently have - it would do the world of good for our youngsters to train alongside one of the world's best & it would also raise our profile so high there would be no end of quality, top level players willing to come here....

Personally regardless of our other signings I want to see Gareth Barry turn out in our shirt next season and NOT in a scouse shirt. If he has to go to a Champions League side any but red scouse.

i think villawill has hit the nail on the head with his comment ..more more rediculious not to try and sign top player than to think we are never going to be good enough too. remember what chelski had to do to become a top side was to get older stars,raise the profile and attract younger better players. wish list henry lennon huddlestone dunne pascal nicky shorey

Exactly if we are not gonna at least have a go at singing a player like Henry, then what is the point, he in the next level, the level we are often told we wont to be at, lets show some ambition and make a top signing!!

LIKE to see; Henry for the massive buzz it would give us supporters and create in the media. NEED to sign; Chimbonda (MON will sort his attitude out and he's a useful player on the right). DO WITHOUT; Bentley (big-time charley/***** attitude/so much up hi own arse he wouldn't fit in),

I'd like to see us go in for Aaron Ramsey, he looks a good talent. I'd be gutted if we didn't even try for him.

Lennon and Tommy Hudd Not for Sale fellas!!! You can take Chimbonda though although youd have to offer him plenty of money. Hes a total git but a good defender so if you feel its worth it im sure hes available.

I don't agree, I think its a bit silly that he's in there, and David Bentle. They are 2 players that we just simply can't have.

Henry has already stated he could never play for a EPL club other than Arsenal so we ain't got a hope...plus his kid is in London so the only team he'd ever go to if he changed his mind is Chelsea!!!! We ain't gonna get Bentley but i do like his arrogance, it sets him apart and gives him a winning mentality even if he is a t1t. We will get Sidwell and Crouch although i say we should snap up Darren Bent and not even consider that stupid-eyebrowed Lennon! Milner or Kieran Richardson if we must buy a right sided winger to compete with Routledge...Shorey and Dunne please...though with Hughes arriving at ManC he'll probably stay - which is why we should have got in early!!!!! Lessons not being learnt from the previous windows...????? Please snap Shorey up!!!!

Who has voted for Bentley??? these polls are never accurate because non-Villans are surely voting. Villawill is right, Henry is a God and the rest aren't even mere mortals.

Just don't think he is as good as everyone makes out. You do see his occasional Beckham like cross but 9 times out of 10 he is lacking. On Sunday he wanted to take the freekicks and was woeful, surely should have been Ashley because he is much more consistent, not to mention quicker, and the biggest difference which I think is best, humble

Henry for me, doubt it wil ever happen but If Barry went for 15 million it would make it all the more possible. Ahhh dreams.

Bentley is right up there at the top of the assist charts just below our own webcam maestro....so imagine the chances we'd create with both of them plying their trade down either wing. I can't see why anyone wouldn't want to see that?

must admit at the moment, Paul robinson, Richard Dunne, James Milner and Wright Phillips would be a nice collection of signings.

I think if Bentley signed it would please 99.9% of fans. But I actually think there is more chance of us signing Henry, I have a sneaking feeling we might see Bentley lining up for a Manchester team next season, I aint talking about Utd.

Even if Villa paid Henry 120k a week it would be well worth it because we could attract more top class players which we can't do right now, Look at Portsmouth everyone said they didn't have a chance of signing Sol Campbell and look what happened, After that Defoe, Distan, Johnson etc etc, i mean in their senior squad they have 30 players and we have 20.... We need players it says today Chelsea have accepted a 5m bid for Sidwell, which would be decent but i want to see Lennon, Huddlestone, Foster/Harts in a Villa shirt next season, We also need one or two more Strikers as well, Unless MON plays 4,3,3 and use Routledge, Young, (Maybe Lennon), Agbonlahor, Maloney on the wings making up for the two strikers on counter-------------End of the day MON needs players and lets hope its a bit more interesting than the last few seasons we've had at Villa, I mean i remember when Laursen came from AC Milan for 2.5m and there was a real buzz about the place just because he came from AC Milan.......Bring Henry and the rest will follow.

Milner, Sidwell, those two will do for starters. Some of the names the guys above are churning out, I cant comment about. Never even seen them play.

Agreed Glensider. Those 2 are the best of the realistic chance of signings. Lennon again has the pace and the one trick to do a full back but is no where near the finished article. Also got to be the smallest player in the prem, so can't see MON going for him.
