Can Sidwell Replace Barry? Yes... And No!

Can Sidwell Replace Barry?  Yes... And No!


Vital Villa asked in our last poll:

Can Sidwell Replace Barry following quotes from the Villa midfielder that he was fit, hungry and willing to step up to the plate... not exactly sure what that expression means to be honest, sounds like I know what I'm on about though and that is all that is important... Vital Illusion!

Article: Steve Sidwell - The Gareth Barry Replacement?

33% said no, he can't replace Barry! Ouch.

28% disagreed voting 'yes, he can be as good'.

25% doubted his ability but wanted the former Reading and Chelsea midfielder to be given a chance.

8% believe Sidwell can be better than Barry was and 6% voted 'just about'.

Our latest poll, following more press links, asks who would you prefer, Darren Bent or Robbie Keane (or both, or neither!)

So there you go, another major issue dealt with!

Judging by last nights performance, the answer must be "NO" Otherwise, he has a very big job ahead of him to get any where near Barry's quality. But hey, lets give him a chance this season!

I think NRC is a better player, but to be honest neither are up to the job. We need a big signing to fill the boots of our best player for the last 10 years!

Hey lets NOT give him a chance. Seasons are ruined by persevering with wrong teams and hoping. I prefer to persevere with the untried, because at least that gives you a chance to dream. Bannan, Albrighton in from the start and the Fonz. The dream result, another season like last year. The other alterrnative is play them and at least if they are not totally successful, they wil benefit from the experience. The other option - of not playing them - will be a continuation of the indifferent form of 2009 to date. Try for the unknown. Have we got the Villa equivalent of Becham, Giggs, Scholes and the Nevilles all just waiting to be unleashed. Who knows - but none of this in MON we trust stuff. He doesn't know either until they are properly tested. The evidence to date is enouraging though. Why continue with the tried and tested who we know some of whom do fall short.
