Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by skakdiddy, who is the best striker in the Premiership?

Surprisingly Chelsea’s Didier Drogba came first with 44% of the votes. Thanks for visiting Merlin and friends!

Thierry Henry, the best striker in Europe in my opinion, got 42%

Wayne Rooney got 7%

Former Villa boy Peter Crouch polled just 3%

Potential Villa target if the red tops are to be believed (which I guess they aren’t!) Jermain Defoe of Spurs got just 2%

Leaving 2% voting for ‘other’.

  • maybe the vote was hijacked, so not a true reflection. i mean i am surprised Andy Johnson didn’t get a mention, and NO villa strikers ? Kuyt ? many many more you could mention even Darren Bent. for me HENRY is class above Drogba, although the chelsea man

  • I think your site must have been. hi-jacked, only chelski fans would be stupid enough to vote for drogba

  • I don’t think there are many better strikers than Drogba at the moment. I am a Chelsea fan but did’nt vote in your poll.
    Recently, he’s got a hell of a lot stronger and is displaying unusually high levels of skill. Still a bit Heskeyesque in his balanc

  • IMO Drogba is class player and I would probably put him 2nd to Henry. He is a different type of player to Henry though, more in the old fashioned centre forward mould (but with added diving). Henry is the better player to watch

  • its henry, no question. drogba may have scored more but henry can do things that drogba cries himself to sleep over!

  • Henry for me. As Geordie Villa says, there were no Villa strikers who could have been included at the moment, which is a shame as we’ve always had a proud tradition of top strikers.

  • I went on what I’ve seen with my own eyes, and going by his two showings against us this season to date, his all-round play has improved considerably. It’s easy to see now why Mourinho rated him so highly, and in and around the box I believe he now has ve

  • Oneday soon Mr Fear we will have not only a team to be proud of but a striker or two who will propell Villa to the top of the division.

  • Henry, without a doubt one of the greatest Players ever, obviously he would have acheived greater success had he played for the mighty Villa, Drogba has hit a run of good form but IMHO he is not fit to lace Henrys boots. UTV

  • He (Drogba) is the classic example of give a guy time to really settle in, and given quality, he’ll come through.
