Fabian Delph Voted Villa's Best Summer Signing

Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by tr1dent:

Best Summer Signing?

It was a relatively close thing for a change with Fabian Delph our teenage sensation who arrived from Leeds winning with 31%

Former Manchester City defender Richard Dunne was next up with 26% closely followed by Stewart Downing our summer arrival from Boro with 24%.

That left:

Stephen Warnock 12%
Habib Beye 5%
Andy Marshall 1%
James Collins 1%

Our latest poll asks which formation you prefer.

I voted for Delph, but that was based on what I *understand* his potential to be, and also assumed "which are you most pleased with". I'm happy with all of our signings, which are all excellent in the context of what I believe they were bought for.

I think we'll be looking back in a year thinking maybe Warnock was a real steal in this window....

Agree, signing Fabian Delph got me excited. (Although it was quickly gone after we signed Beye.) Warnock is also a very good signing.

richard dunne will prove to be great value for money at 6m exactly what we were after, downing will fit in nicely when fit, delph will be unstoppable over the next few years, warnock im sure will prove to be an excellent addition and collins and beye are decent back up and now the team looks strong all the way through again i think we will do alright this year UTV

I've got a hunch that Collins will prove a better buy than Dunne - if he ever gets a chance to play.

Downing then Dunne for me, Delph could prove to be a good buy for the future, but Downing and Dunne are established Premier League footballers.

Of the subject but can anyone spread any light on Luke Young? I know he was injured most of pre-season and also missed some time due to the terrible death of his brother, but is he now back in full training and getting back to fitness? I was surprised not to see him play for the reserves last week and when MON talked about our current injured players, he wasn't mentioned, so I assume he's training again? I really hope he gets back in the team soon, as last year I think he was unlucky not to win player of the year, as he was outstanding. I personally think he is an excellent player and has been missed this season. Beye does not come close in my opinion. Any chance of him being fit for the blues game, as a back 5 of Friedel, Young, Dunne, Cueller, Warnock will be perfect!!
In MON we trust!

Leecookfan - If you read the 2nd post, Mr Fear explained its who were more excited about, not who's the best signing. I can see where you got confused though as the top post is mine, saying its a bit unfair as 5 of them haven't played yet!!
