Which Striker Would You Like Villa To Sign?

Which Striker Would You Like Villa To Sign?

Vital Vilal asked, in a poll suggested by Stig,

Which striker would you like most in January?

Seems most want Ajax striker Klass Jan Huntelaar who got 34% of the votes.

Next up the one that a fair few Premiership clubs will be sniffing around (unfortunate turn of phrase) this January as he can leave on a free next summer, is Newcastle's Michael Owen on 22%. Would be a world class addition if he can stay fit. He is only 29 (this December) and has years ahead of him injury permitting. There is no better on his day.... ooooh, just imagine!

Then comes Portsmouth's Jermain Defoe with 11%. Why oh why did Martin O'Neill not want him last January!????!

Other results:

Newcastle's Obafemi Martins (8%)
Blackburn's Santa Cruz (7%)
Barcelona's Thierry Henry (6%)
Wigan's Amir Zaki (5%)
Reading's Kevin Doyle (3%)
Other (2%)
Wigan's Emile Heskey (1%)
West Ham's Dean Ashton (1%) So low because he is again injured I'd assume?
Pompey's Peter Crouch (0%)

I thought MON wanted Defoe every transfer window since he came to Villa. Trouble was that Defoe didn't want to come to Villa! Or did I miss something last January?

villa_de, we definately didn't go in for Defoe last Jan. I am sure if we had he would have come. He knows a big club when he sees one!

Huntelaar had no service when playing against us. With our midfield he'd be bagging 30 a season.
