Our last poll, suggested by lee9679, asked:
Where do Villa most need to strengthen?
The resounding answer was central defence with 72% of the vote after the massive loss to injury of Martin Laursen.
Next up was 15% saying central midfield following the departure of £areth Barry to Manchester City.
Central midfield 15%
Just 6% said up front which is a shocker as I think we've been woefully short of goals for years and that puts pressure on our midfield and more importantly defender and keeper.
Talking of keepers, only 4% saw that area as a priority, although surely some back up is needed after the departure of Stuart Taylor and the comparative inexperience of USA keeper Brad Guzan?
1% voted for a right-back and the same amount for a left-back and only 1% thought a winger was a priority.
Personally, I'd take one of each please and two up front.
Our latest poll, following this report: Carew Out - Crouch In? + Other Transfer Talk!, asks: Crouch or Carew? Options, are errm, Crouch or Carew... obviously...! Or both or neither we need better.
Aston Villa have six players away with their countries in the October international window.
Midfielder Jordan Veretout hasn't just had to adjust to life in a new country, at a new club and with a new language, there was also the small matter...
Err. The Vital Villa man of the match v Stoke City...
Manager Tim Sherwood has given his normal Monday briefing, and goalkeeper Brad Guzan has also given his thoughts as frustration reigns.
