Which Striker Would You Like At Villa?

Which Striker Would You Like At Villa?

Vital Villa asked in our last poll:

Which striker would you prefer at Villa?

Darren Bent from Spurs got 33% of the vote. Recent reports suggested that Sunderland had a £14million bid for him turned down as Spurs want to recoup the £16.5million they paid Charlton for his services.

Fellow Spur who had a quick dash to and from Liverpool last season Robbie Keane got 12%

Barcelona and former Chelsea (and to be fair Bolton) player Eidur Gudjohnsen attracted 10% of the vote. The press talk this morning suggested Barca might allow him to leave for £5million with West Ham being favourites to get his signature.

England and Portsmouth striker Peter Crouch got just 6% of the vote.

That left 39% not liking any of the selections available... for that I can only apologise!! :o)

Some did ask why Tuncay wasn't in there also but I've always looked at his as an attacking midfielder rather than an out and out striker?!

A thread in the forum (Click Here) on Stewart Downing currently has 79 votes in favour and just 14 against the signing of the Boro and England winger:

So who else would you want to see striker wise? Some reports are saying that Real Madrid striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar who was set to join Stuttgart but prefers a move to the Premiership. Hmmm?!

Or do you think we've enough strikers and are ok for the new season as we are?

Our latest poll asks what you think about the Downing signature (bearing in mind it is yet to be announced yet as a done deal but should be close!)

We should only be buying a striker if we're getting rid of Heskey, but I can't see that happening, despite being a natural optimist. Delfouneso should be given his head, seen as the fourth striker, and get some decent playing time.

Bent is the man....Big enough to be powerful and athletic enough to be quick.....good player and definitely one I'd welcome...on form under MON he'd be great....still think we need two players with real leadership qualities to come in though, real experienced guys.

Meanwhile, I can't see how the signing of an average (at best) Premiership player for £12m can be seen as a good thing. Downing might have played for England, but so does our very own Emile Heskey, so what kind of recommendation that is I really don't know. the irony is that the (rightly) lamented Heskey is far more likely to be going to South Africa than Downing. Unless of course Capello continues to see second choice Stew as a better bet than Ashley Young...

None,we should not be disrupting the group that has done well anymore than we have too,We have the fonz coming through and heskey for a full season as well as gabby and carew,We are fine for strikers,And now with downing on board we are fine for midfielders if we keep sidwell and coker,Not sure what else we actually need unless we can get a player who is on the next level to what we have,Then i would be all for it but i don`t think those type of players are around.No point in signing people just for the sake of it.Don`t know why people slag off heskey so much,when he played last season he did well and looked a threat.
