Jlloyd Samuel Poll Results

Jlloyd Samuel Poll Results
Vital Villa asked if Jlloyd Samuel should be allowed to leave on a free in the summer.

4% voted that he should not be allowed to leave and that he is a good first team player.

30% thought he should be kept as he is a good squad member.

That left 57% saying he should be allowed to leave because he isn't good enough and 6% saying he should go as he is next to useless.

Only 3% were unsure.

Our latest poll, suggested by Jonah, asks what you think of Stiliyan Petrov so far.

I think this guy will come good. Like the rest of the side they need a bit of momentum. When confidence is high, Stan will shine, I have no doubt. Mon buys players he believes in, quality always comes through.

Form is temporary - talent is permanent. Give Mon a chance to look at Samuel and as for Stan he hasn't got the quality in midfield to give him confidence. Sad but true.

I dont like the idea of him going for nothing as we have put hundreds of thousands into him in one way or another. He will prolly go onto score loads for another club and once again we will have been left with a sour taste in our mouth's

Personally I can't see over half the team being at Villa in a years time. We all have all seen potential in most of the players at certain times over the years, but look at the end result to date? We all agree a major overhaul is required in the playing staff for us to start competing for honours, so lets not kid ourselves about the abilities of the current squad MON has inherited, it simply isn't good enough for a top half finish let alone trophies.

Petrov will do just fine, as for JLloyd, its time to move on.

I have never rated JLS. Bouma is a much better option at LB IMO. Although we need cover for all positions I can't see JLS hanging around for a bench warming role. Let him go and revive his career elsewhere.

Good riddance lets move this club forward and not live on the dreams that he was promising 3 years ago. We need new blood and inevitably old blood will leave. We seem to not like our players to leave at Villa I for one am guilty of this. Out with the old in with the (john carew) . Manx rhyming slang for new!!

still say Jlloyd is a good player given a run in the team and better luck with fitness. Thought we were wanting to build a squad, we can't keep letting players go unless there are quality replacements already in place. We need competition for places surely?

I think we'll see a lot of comings and goings in the summer and Jlloyd will probably be one of them. I would like to see him stay and given a run in the team, as he has all the attributes that a good full back needs. I think he needs to concentrate for the full 90 minutes, which has always been his problem. He's progressed alot since he was booed when JG played him at right back and there's no reason why MON can't get him back to the form he showed when he was called up to the England squad

I am with Fear on this one. We currently have two left backs who are reasonable but who are not brilliant. I would be reasonably happy to go into a season with a fit JLS and Bouma fighting for the position. As JLS's contract is up, this is not likely to happen. So it is almost certain that M'ON is going to have to find a new left back. There are two ways to do this. You either buy someone who is better than Bouma i.e Wayne Bridge. Or you buy a younger player, from the lower divisions, with potential, to challenge Bouma for his position. In M'ON we trust to do the right thing. The downside is that we all know that JLS will probably go on and be a revelation at his next club and we will all be wondering why we let him leave, especially as we are not going to get any money for him.
