Which Striker Would You Like At Villa Next Season?

Which Striker Would You Like At Villa Next Season?

Robbie Keane will be available from Spurs, as will Spurs on-loan signing Gudjohnsen who will be looking to leave AS Monaco in the summer.

Would you fancy Carlton Cole to return to Villa Park after a decent season at West Ham?

Maybe Michael Owen floats your boat, given his lack of appearances for Man Utd, not sure how long he is injured for though.

Frederic Piquionne did a decent job at Pompey, would he do better with our team?

Kenwynne Jones is probably more realistic than Darren Bent, but would you like him at Villa Park?

Rangers' Kris Boyd was linked in January, would he do well south of the border?

Or is there someone else you have your eye on, let us know by commenting below.....

Probably like a player I know nothing about, if that makes sense! There are several in the Premiership who would improve us, but I can't think of one realistically that would be the answer. I believe we need a younger Robbie Keane or Teddy Sheringham type of player. We have power and pace up front but we don't have the 'clever' player who can drop short, have the ball to feet comfortably and pick a killer pass AND get into the box to score goals. Might need to come from someone I don't know abroad. IMO the best who MAY be available from the Priemership is Berbatov, but he doesn't work hard enough for MON. Couldn't we afford one luxury player in our set up?

I 'd go for Forlan, but would we get him??? Keane, Rodellega, Kalenic. One thing is for sure, we wont break the bank.

I think we should have a complete change and buy a striker who is a natural finisher, Falcao for me but obviously not going to happen, so Carroll instead and play The Fonz more, these two will be playing up front together for the Eng u21s for the next few years

Falcano from porto together with robbie keane, we need a goalscorer and a link up man or as Merson would say a number 10.

Bent, number 1 target - we should have got him for £12 - Snderland will want £20m now!

We already needed one extra striker, we may lose two so we may need three. Who would I like? Torres, Tevez and Rooney! Realistically I can see us perhaps going for Keane/Cole/Doyle if Carew and Emule leave for average money. That wouldn't be so bad but we could possibly do better. Incidentally I touted Falcoa before he signed for Porto (on a different forum) - MON never listens to me.

I dont think any of the mentioned strikers, except Keane are good enough to make too much difference. I would like someone like Tevez or Craig Belamy. None of the strikers mentioned would get into the teams above us in the PL, so why should we be happy with one of them? Do we want to finish 6th again or lower next season? Then we have to be a bit more adventurous, maybe look for some African or South American striker.... but a real talent! I dont really know who to be honest, but there again I am not being paid to know, but MON and our scouts are.... earn your money and bring in someone who is going to take us forward!

Fed up of not having a quality striker, every top team has one (or three).....Time to pay up Mr Lerner, cant be bothered watching another season of strikers who need 7 shots to score.
