Podolski: The Fans Choice!!

Lukas Podolski is the forward the fans want according to Vital MCFC's latest poll.

Podolski topped the poll with a huge 55% of the votes.

The German international is currently struggling to hold down a first team place at Bayern but his class is not in doubt.

The forward was one of the stars of last years World Cup; his goals helping to propel the hosts to a well earned semi-final finish.

Second in the poll was rumoured target Alfonso Alves of Heerenveen with just 17% of the vote.

Tellingly only 5% of those polled wanted Liverpool's Peter Crouch; a figure only 2% higher than those opting for Lee Hughes of Oldham.

Results in Full

Alves - 17%

Podoloski - 55%

Fred - 7%

Crouch - 5%

Mancini - 10%

Santa Cruz - 3%

Hughes - 3%

The choice was only compiled from speculation by the media and not necessarily the fans' first choice. As stated earlier, Sven may well think he has the striker situation well covered and look to midfield and defensive cover.

Yep, Allardyce a goner and not before time, most Geordies will tell you! Almost Instant Karma for a man whose arrogance had gone into orbit. Many Bolton fans will be laughing tonight. That also has to be curtains for Barton.

There but for the grace with regards BFS. Seriously thought he was City bound when he resigned from Bolton.

I don't think Newcastle have a bad squad and there league position is not in danger of relegation. I personally would like to thank BFS for buying Barton, that was a bargain for us, well made up for the Hamann saga, when he told us it was the easiest 400000 he had made.

Do I sense less of a desperation for new players than this time twelve months ago? That said SP did make one good January purchase in Michael Ball.
