The below was on Vital Football: http://www.astonvilla.vitalfootball.co.uk/article.asp?a=7511905

Great: Stylian Petrov, John Carew, Ashley Young, Brad Friedel, James Milner

Good: Luke Young, Stewart Downing, James Collins

Average: Chris Sutton, Phil Bardsley, Nigel Reo-Coker, Brad Guzan, Carlos Cueller, Richard Dunne

Poor: Shaun Maloney, Marlon Harewood, Curtis Davis, Nicky Shorey, Fabian Delph, Stephen Warnock.

Disaster: Didier Agathe, Gabor Kiraly, Wayne Routledge, Moustapha Salifou, Zat Knight, Scott Carson, Steve Sidwell, Emile Heskey, Habib Beye

-------------

I would class it more as this:

Great: Ashley Young, Brad Friedel, James Milner

Good: Stylian Petrov, John Carew, Luke Young, Stewart Downing

Average/Ok: Chris Sutton, Phil Bardsley, Nigel Reo-Coker, Brad Guzan, Carlos Cueller, Richard Dunne, James Collins, Stephen Warnock, Fabian Delph, Emile Heskey

Poor: Shaun Maloney, Marlon Harewood, Curtis Davis, Nicky Shorey.

Disaster: Didier Agathe, Gabor Kiraly, Wayne Routledge, Moustapha Salifou, Zat Knight, Scott Carson, Habib Beye

So many of those players if they had actually been given a chance and played would have been classed better.

What do you think?

You can't say Heskey has been a disaster and then say Shorey was only poor.

Curtis Davies did ok so did Knight, certainly not as bad as Agathe or Between.

Surely a great signing is a surprise something unexpected like Henry or Bergkamp. Young wasn't a great signing. IMO Mon made some good signings but no great ones.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here but I think Petrov was a great signing, possibly the very best MON signing given how long he's been here with us.

Oh, and I'd class Warnock as a disaster purely because of the points he's single-handedly cost us.

I think Heskey has had a few good moments for us even if we hate to admit it, Curtis Davies was an ok player bought for a disasterous amount of money

My word, if this counts as obsessing then so do most threads on here.

This thread wasn't made as an attack on MON. It was made merely to discuss his signings. You don't have to take personal offence every time someone posts something that might be interpreted as a swipe at MON. Chill out.
