Should Shay Given Stay?  Poll Results

Following a bit of transfer talk with regards to Shay Given Vital Villa asked:



Would you replace Shay Given

given

No 57%

Yes 35%

Unsure 8%

For me, with any player, the key is only to replace if you are replacing with better. If not, why bother? He`s a mighty fine keeper and I personally think he kept us up last season, so happy for him to remain IF he wants to.

He had a stinker at Euro 2012, then again with the exception of Keith Andrews all the Irish inc the manager had shockers. I still think Shay will give us (the Villa) a good season so no I would not sell him. COTVABU

Wouldn't take any notice of the Euros, he's still a great keeper, a couple of decent defenders in front of him and we'll be impenetrable.

Shay has a history of making more mistakes for his country than he does for his club

He had a stinker at the Euros? No wonder Irish Villa, no offence mate but he had so much to do due to Ireland being so shocking...He still to date has pulled off the save of the tournament against Spain...love how people just say 'get rid' like he has done something wrong, give players some respect ffs. He was by far player of the season last year.

Agreed P.Avfc, some of the saves he made contributed to some of those bore draws we managed. These draws could have been defeats and we could be in the fizzy pop league by now!

I don't think he kept us up last season. On the contrary, I think he almost relegated us. We conceived the most goals from corners last season and that's primarily because he was not stepping off his line to collect the balls and was not commanding his defence. The isolated instintive save here and there would happen to cover up for his mistakes. I have no idea why we released Brad Guzan.

Sorry, Villalfred. I wholeheartedly disagree! Season before last we were hardly any good at defending set pieces and crosses. Most of the blame stops at Dunne and Collins' door.

100% keep for me. If he had a stinker at the euro's then fine but he only played in three games. If he had a bad three games in the EPL nobody would say much, just that he's lost a bit of form and will pick it back up because he's class. All great players have dips and Shay is no different. He kept us up for sure and he'll be a massive asset for us again this coming season. There's plenty of other Villa players I'd rather see the back of. UTV!
