Vital Villa asked which two defenders will form the best central partnership this season.

A massive 69% opted for Olof ‘the bearded one’ Mellberg and Martin Laursen.
17% said Mellberg and Liam Ridgewell.
11% voted for the bearded one and Gary Cahill.

Leaving just 1% each for Laursen with either Ridgewell or Cahill, or Cahill and Ridgewell.

Our latest poll asks if everyone should send me £10, WHAT? Apparently it has been changed to ask if Villa will win, lose or draw against West Ham on Sunday.

  • Hopefully Laursen will obtain and maintain full fitness, and show us all what he’s capable of. Now that could be something. I am scared to say anything else, in case i jinx him to futher injury.

  • i like the mellberg/laursen partnership, i feel the facial hair ying/yang balance is good, the backline looked to hairy with olof’s beard and ridgewells impersonation of a 12 year old growing a ‘tache!!. i personally would play Brian ‘gordon’s alive’ Bles

  • on paper our first choice defensive looks pretty solid…sorenson, hughes, laursen, mellberg, bouma…lots of international experience there. Easily one of the top 8 defences in the premiership, lets hope MON can sort them out and get them playing as a u

  • Keep ’em all fit and in relatively good form, and its definitely fair to say that we’re well served in central defence. Even Olof, long considered a fixture in there, will have to keep on his toes to fight off the challenge of the other pretenders.

  • cant knock ridgewell tho, he had a great game at arsenal and is in good form, he usually chips in with a goal or two aswell.
