The yes`s have it, but at different prices! In total for the right price 55% would sell him and 7% if he put in a transfer request. That left a sizeable 37% saying under no circumstances.


Under no circumstances 37%
Yes, for £6m or over 32%
Yes, for £10m or over 23%
Only if he put in transfer request or wanted to go 7%

if he was bored or stale, or if he really can't get on with Bent, I would. If he carried on like he has the last two seasons I'd even drive him wherever. IF he could re-find the form and the desire he has not displayed the last two seasons (and yes, I know, out of position blah blah blah, but ffs.. so sulky looking) then I'd be happy for him to stay and kick on and become a deserved Villa legend.

Always been a tony daley for me electric pace massive heart (cut him in half bleeds claret n blue) weak finish. let him go before the dissent starts against him as it did with tony. Agree with the fear hope he can kick on and become a legend but been waiting a while for that now to be honest. As the pole suggests torn between head and heart.

Hard one, I like Gabby,he is one of our own a true Villian, certainly he has had two very poor seasons for us. Then again a good few of our players have had those. Maybe under Paul he might re discover his form. He should not be let go ( but if he is to go) then he should not go for less than 6mil. COTVABU

Depends what his ambitions are, If he wants to stay at the club at all costs then perhaps Villa need to sit down with him and discuss certain things. I believe his contract should be reviewed and discussed with him that right now and for the last two seasons it hasn't gone well for him and right now he doesn't derserve the handsome injection he has going into his bank account. I believe he should stay but right now he is nothing more than a squad player that should be on squad player wages, He should be on around 25k being a squad player and not the 40k plus he is currently on. I find it hard to actually find a place for him. For the good of the team I would rather sell him and have someone like Kalou flying down the wing instead of Agbonlahor. But as a Villa fan he should stay to give the youngsters ambition, But he really does need to raise his game because right now he is being paid millions a year and we don't really need him.

Fear, I know the players earn ridiculous money and should deal with anything that’s thrown at them but sometimes I do think they are human beings and its all relative. The last couple of years must have been miserable for the players, the upheaval of Houllier and the misery of McLeish. Given how angry and frustrated I’ve been as a fan, I can sympathise with Gabby being hacked off – not only was he watching first hand the destruction of his beloved team but he was being played out position a lot and not getting the service to do his job well. I’m not saying he should play for England or anything but I do think he deserves another decent shot – he offers a very different style of attack to anyone else we have or are being linked to (Holt) and with a small squad I think that’s important. If not vital!

Given his commitment and attitude to our club, he should be welcome as long as he wants. Also, these days its hard to find someone who is so committed that they won't complain if they don't start every week and he is a decent squad player. I hope if we are more attacking, he can rediscover his form. Under MON he was a very useful player, at his age, he can still achieve. I really think as fans, we should make it shown how welcome he is, he is very professional too, you never hear him complain or make trouble, or staggering out of nightclubs. He's a top man, his commitment could make him a villa legend one day, I hope he stays.

I think he should be given at least 1 season with PL here to see if it reignites him or whether Paul can find a way to fit him in better. He has frightening pace which is an invaluable match winning asset IF USED CORRECTLY. (He should be given detention to practice 1 on 1's however lol!) So i say keep him!. We need players here who want to play for the club but has he lost that desire i wonder? that would be my only question mark.
05/06/2012 16:00:00
Gabby has always looked disinterested whilst on the pitch and it was only under MON that we saw him putting the extra effort in. Good player but only really good when managed by a decent man manager/motivator. Got to give him a chance under Lambie.
05/06/2012 17:24:00
Yes .................. and don't replace him with Holt FFS !!!
05/06/2012 18:32:00
We have a small squad. We shouldnt be considering like for like anyway, if we can get better he would make an ideal squad player; someone who doesnt play every week but remains committed. We'd be mad to sell him!
