Best Villa Captain Since PL Start?

Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by gmvillan,

Villa's best captain since the inception of Premier League?

Must admit, I totally agree with the result as well, he was a top man as well!

Move forward Mr Andy Townsend with 46% of the vote.

forum

I will try to text / contact him to let him know these results, might be an old number I have though so might not work!

Other results:

The man with the great moustache, Kevin Richardson 12%

The bearded wonder, Olof Mellberg 10%

He who was a legend and then faded (!) Gareth Barry 9%

Next up former Villa and England defender, Gareth Southgate 7%

Magic man Paul Merson 6%

Current captain Stiliyan Petrov 6%

And tough defender Steve Staunton 4%

So there you blinking well go!

i voted for rico but it was a toss up between him and townsend, just though rico got more out of less talent and was always one of my favourites

Townsend was brilliant. But any of the names above have done a great job, interesting that there is no mention of Laursen though, guessing he was overlooked? Captained more games than Petrov has so far.
