Majority Say Sign Michael Owen!

Majority Say Sign Michael Owen!

Vital Villa asked in our last poll what sort of signing you thought Newcastle striker Michael Owen would be.

Seems the majority would like to see him at Villa Park with 53% voting 'A risk but well worth it' and 24% voting it would be a world class signing.

18% felt it was too big a risk due to his injuries, 4% that it would be a poor signing and the remaining 1% thinking the prospect average.

Not sure a 1 goal per 2 games striker would be average but the big IF is certainly his injury record.

Who'd be a manager eh?!

going to be fascinating to see who does sign him, can't see Newcastle not selling him in Jan as they have to make something out of him after he cost them £17m from Real Madrid.

If we could get him for a reasonable price then great. Bring him on for the last 30 minutes of the game and he will score if given proper service. Worth the risk!

The majority are usually wrong - and I suspect they are here too. How would Vill get any value out of such a deal?

By scoring goals and thus winning more and obtaining a higher league finish and better cup results.

Defoe for me. Has been my number one choice for the last 3 years and nothing has changed my mind. Head and shoulders above Owen. Would get 20+ goals easily in our team. Just think our 4 striking options being Defoe, Gabby, Carew and Heskey....top four here we come.

Agree in MON we trust! Biggest mistake made was not going for him at such a knock down price last January. He might even have got us the 4th place (at least 5th) last season, but MON must have his reasons I guess.

Goals, goals and more goals Gordonsleftboot. He is a 1 in 2 striker, give him the chance (even in a struggling Newcastle side) and he'll take them. Also could teach Gabby a great deal which would almost make it worth it just for that because Gabby is already learning fast and improving season on season, but to learn more from the side of a master... superb!

Another point, would MON break his wage structure to sign him? Surely he wold want £80k+. Just can't see this one.
