Well, according to last weeks poll, it doesn’t matter what strike partnership David O’Leary decides to go with, because none of the strikers get the supply anyway!

I must admit I’m pleased with that result because I’ve been saying – along with many other Villa fans – that players like Angel haven’t become average over night, it is the plain simple fact that our tactics don’t result in a decent supply line to the strikers, we (we, blimey, I wish!) don’t get behind defences very often and regularly try the long ball which will never work when all our strikers are under six feet and the majority of defenders are over 6 feet!

We asked what was your favourite partnership, 41% said it didn’t matter due to the lack of supply. 33% said Phillips and Baros, 19% went for Baros with Angel and amazingly 5% said Hercules and Bella the mascots!!! Only 1% chose either Angel and Phillips or Angel and Moore. I think over time the Moore votes will grow, he’ll be a Villa star in the next few seasons, still plenty of improvements to make, but a great prospect. Lets just hope Villa can keep hold of him!

Our latest poll asks if Villa should accept Delaney’s transfer request.
