Which Striker Would You Most Like Back At Villa?

Which Striker Would You Most Like Back At Villa?

We have had some brilliant strikers down the years, but which one would you most like to see back at Villa Park? - we are asking you this very question in our latest poll.

Maybe you would love to have Dalian Atkinson rolling back the years and going on another winding run through a team and scoring a peach of a goal for the Villa.

Or perhaps its Dean Saunders that you liked most, the former Liverpool man's goals could come in handy in our current side.

Dion Dublin was extremely popular with the fans, at his peak its hard to argue against the fact he was one of the Premiership's greats.

12 years on you still might not be able to forgive Dwight Yorke for what he did but you wouldn't mind seeing him back at the club where he made his name.

Juan Pablo Angel had that one great season, but he also managed double figures on at least 2 other occasions, maybe the Colombian is just what Ashley Young and Stewart Downing need to be aiming for in the box.

Kevin Phillips never really got a chance, but he knew where the back of the net is. He is currently at St Andrews but would you forgive him that and have him starting in our team?

Luc Nilis never had a chance to really show us how good a player he was going to be, maybe remembering that goal at Chelsea can convince you to vote for him?

Milan Baros arrived from Liverpool with a great reputation, he scored goals galore for club and country but never really hit the goal trail at Villa for whatever reason, would he get your vote though?

Peter Crouch has gone on to become a very good player but the dangly youngster we had all those years ago, would you have him back?

So get voting, who at their peak would you most like to see in our current side?

If none of the above do anything for you, please vote Other - Savo Milosevic, Tommy Johnson, Julian Joachim and Stan Collymore (among others) are represented with this option. Not to mention Marlon Harewood of course......

Dwight Yorke all time fave for me, but Juan Pablo Angel would score goals fro fun in this side.

Would love to have seen how Luc Nilis would have turned out for us. JPA would be my shout to score goals in the current setup.....

Dwight Yorke, hands down. He could do everything, left foot, right foot, hold the ball up, run at players, drift out wide, drop deep to get the ball and for a short guy, if he got his head on the end of it it was hitting the target. If we had a player like that up top we'd have been a lot closer to the top 4 last season. Otherwise Nilis looked the best option in his 2 and a bit games!!! Why no mention of Balaban though???

Savo was a much better player than most gave him credit for. But Dwight Yorke was definitely the best striker we've had in the past twenty years, and one of three world class players we've had in the same period (the others being McGrath and Bosnich).

Dwight. Yes he ruined it all at the end but he was brilliant. Simple. Although Moocher makes a good point about him being such a brilliant dad, that doesn't concern me. Name a footballer around now who is actually a decent role model and I'll tell you you're wrong... unless you said Scholes or Giggs.

Tony Hateley, Peter Withe, or Gary Shaw, give me one of those three and I'd rate our chances of success this upcoming campaign that much higher. We've had some top notch strikers at the club over the years, pity that at this moment in time, such an individual is in very short supply at Brummagem B6.

What no Stanley Victor?? Tough one for me between 4 Shaw , Withe, Saunders and Yorke. Would go with Big Peter purely based upon THAT GOAL
