Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by Young_Jonah, who is the best Aston Villa keeper of the last 25 years.

Mark Bosnich won with 42%. Have to say he was a great keeper before he disappeared up his own backside, he never was the same after leaving Villa. His major flaw was his kicking which was about as good as a 3 year old girls!! Oh, and the massive ego he had to carry around with him naturally.

The older members have certainly been voting on this poll as Jimmy Rimmer with 30% and Nigel Spink (who can forget his sub appearance in ‘that’ game?!) with 17% were next up.

That left Scott Carson with 5%. To be fair if it had been my poll I’d have been tempted to not have Scott in as he has only just arrived, hopefully in time he’ll become a Villa legend, that is if he gets his wish and does move permanently to Villa from Liverpool.

David James only polled 3% which is a bit of a shock. I know he had his calamity moments – often highlighted unfairly in the press – but he was a superb keeper and probably deserves a bit more credit for his career than he gets.

That left:

Thomas Sorenson (1%) Bit harsh on the Denmark international I think?
Stuart Taylor (1%)
Gabor Kiraly (1%)
Other (0%)
Stefan Postma (0%)
Kevin Poole (0%)
Michael Oakes (0%)
Peter Enkleman (0%)
