Should Villa Enter The Inter Toto Cup?

Should Villa Enter The Inter Toto Cup?
Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by Col8, should Villa enter the Inter Toto Cup?

Looks like we should with 83% saying yes, good pre-season preparation and a Uefa Cup place to the winners.

17% said no, give the players a rest.

I remember Paul 'magic' Merson saying he enjoyed the Inter-two-bob and thought it gave the team a competitive edge at the start of a season as they are already match fit and competition primed! With the summer spending we should also have a squad large enough to cope with the possible fatigue that sets in mid-way through the season!

I think we should definitely enter.We can use our younger and home grown lads to enter the early stages to save draining are more senior players later in the season.Taylor,Ridgewell,Cahill,bardsley,ohalloran,osbourne,davis,gardner,jlloyd,moore,gabby..theres your starting 11 and a strong enough side...other reserve players could fill the bench,.We really need those Thursday nights again.They are just magical, all or nothing, still think that game against stromgodset when Darius came on and scored the two goals to win was what the atmosphere is all about.

Sean84. I like it when opposition fans come on and slag of other teams. I love it when that fan cannot spell and shows themselves for the uneducated ignoramus they obviously are.

Sean84 is a Celtric fan. Do you think we have upset the Scots again? Think we just just invade again and shut the fat w*****rs up. We can then have any player we want when we want. Oh - we do that anyway.

Villa should definitely enter the intertoto! There is no world cup or euro championships this summer (except for the under 21's). We could therefore use mostly youngsters in the first round and bring in 1 or 2 of the more experienced players and the under 21's as we hopefully progress. We need to be in Europe and this gives us a good route so why not go for it??!! And the fans will go as I remember a very near full house for the final against Basle, and a cracking atmosphere too!
