A very good buy in my opinion, Villa have not had a hard man for a while, Dunne will give us just that

Good couple of defensive signings made by you lot now,I can see a surge up the table for you after your first game blip,just do us a favour and play Heskey and not Carew when you come to the Lane.

Typical. We have a piece on Dunne signing and the boo boys of who we are all so sick and tireduse it as a forum to slag off Heskey. He maybe not everybodys favourite player but he is ours so either support him or shut up. He has been selected bt several England managers, praised by every strike partner he has had and been complimented on by some of the best defenders in the world. I am sure that these people know more about the game than some of the muppets that post on here. But in a typical stance taken by the the people who would rather slag off their own than support them, they have to have a dig. FFS support the players, not belittle them . . . . . . . . . you might actually enjoy it.

Yeah, but crap is crap...blind support is not support at all !

Yeah, but that goes for 'supporters' too, Mason. Doesn't the job description of 'supporter' include 'supporting'? VotH is spot on: do we really believe Heskey has the power to make top managers pick him, top players like to play alongside him? What is it they see that you don't?

Yeah yeah Mason Parker. You know better than the last half a dozen England Managers and all of the strike partners that have loved playing alongside Heskey???? But your brain cell missed the point though. He may not be your favourite player, but he is one of ours. So either shut up or support him. Slagging him off actually achieves nothing. When a team goes into battle they perform better knowing they have the support of everybody. As soon as the support wavers the performance levels falls. So all you achieve by slagging off your own is lower levels of performance. Is that what you want??

I believe those who are arguing 'for' Heskey are making a mistake in terms of 'support'. Stay silent and he will be here forever, and he just aint good enough. Just because some managers pick him doesn't mean he is a great player. His record says it all....a striker who doesnt strike. Would he get in the Man U team ? Would he get in the Arsenal team ? Would he get in the Man City team ?...yes, he got in the Liverpool team....and he was quickly shifted ! If, as VOTH says, his performance will fall (to where I dont know) if we dont blindly support him, then I suggest he stops taking the 30,000 a week or whatever he earns. VOTH seems to not want any opinion other than his own. I think Heskey is a poor striker and always has been. Hundreds of Villa fans would agree. And one other thing...insulting me doesnt make your case stronger, it shows you have no real argumant when you stoop to that level. I'll say it again...'Blind support is no support' !

Your cell missed that one again didn't it? I simply said, some like him, some don't. If you do then support him, if you don't then say nothing. He is ours. And supporters should support. Many people in the game see and welcome his attributes. You on the other hand would rather slag him off. University Challenge was never your thing was it?

Grow up and accept others opinions. Football is entertainment. Heskey doesnt entertain me or many other people. Lets hope MON doesnt take your ideas up...if he did we would have the same players forever and wouldnt get rid of the dross because 'they wear the colours'... As for 'brain cells' ....seems any thought you have dies of loneliness ! VOICE OF THE DOLT ! And yes, welcome to Richard Dunne !
