Owen v Gabby Poll Results + New Poll

Vital Villa asked, following the comments last week on Michael Owen and Gabby Agbonlahor MON Not Ruling Out Owen But Has Faith In Gabby ... I don't know if it is the heat or what but I'm boring myself here... is this what you lot have to put up with all the time?!??! (Don't answer that, I have a delicate nature!)

Where was I?

Oh yes, the poll asked:

Owen v Gabby?

Sadly not in a fight off, that would have been more fun!

Anyway, 58% voted that we need both of them. Must admit I'd have thought Gabby, at just 22, could learn a lot from Owen who has a wealth of experience and when fit is still amongst the best in the world surely?

18% aren't convinced by either of them and 17% voted that Gabby was much better.

That left 7% saying Owen was much better

Not sure what we've proved really but I'll put our findings to the board of Villa for them to decide whether to sign Owen or not (and for those that really don't have a funny bone, I am joking...!)

Not sure what to ask next really, we've a few suggestions surrounding Martin O'Neill etc but I'm trying to keep as positive a vibe going as possible whilst we all wait for some signings...!

Ok, the massive decision has been made (I know, I need to get out more) and I've asked how confident are you on this current transfer window.... can't escape it really can you!?

I have read somewhere that our (alleged) offer to Owen is 40k pw, plus 5k per match and 5k per goal. That is less pw than Stoke or Hull have apparently offered (65k pw or thereabouts). If we get at those figures I would be quite happy.

owen is a has been, i said it from the start and will say it even if he becomes a villan, the man cant even sign a contract with out breaking a finger nail and spending months on the side line. we should be signing players in the 22/25 age range that can take us forward not leave us at a stand still, last season we could have had a number of players that would have made us way better but couldnt be arsed to make offers ie van der vaart and so on, where are they now? bigger clubs lets face it MoN needs major help ion the market and Aston Villa as a whole need to restructure the scouting process

I am baffled that people think Gabby is better than Owen, i think it would be nice to have both of them.

I agree young_jonah It would be good to have both i think Owen is desperate to go to the world cup so has alot to prove this season, plus he is a natural goalscorer and Gabby could learn a thing or 2 from him.

It seems obvious that Gabby is better than Owen. Gabby will play 40+ games a season- Owen, perhaps 10.
