Blues Must Keep Emile Heskey

Blues Must Keep Emile Heskey

Vital Birmingham asked if Emile Heskey should be sold.

The Blues striker has been linked to an exit ever since we were relegated and the player has yet to comment not that he particularly has too, about his future.

51% of those who voted said we should keep Heskey saying he will be good in the Championship.

21% said he only scored four goals for us last season and should be sold and the remaining 28% said he should only be sold if the fee is £3million or more.

I'd personally keep him, the Championship is a tough and physical league and a player like Heskey could be invaluable for his strength and experience.

Would you not be better with a striker that can actually score? He might be big and strong but he seems to spend half his life on the floor? Welcome to the Vital fold by the way, will be good to get some banter going.

Wasn't too impressive last season but he can score, he has vast experience including playing for England and he is a strong lad. Not sure the options to replace him so I would try to keep him for next season and see where we go from there. Nice to know you care though Viler!

Thats great news for me, as a pompey fan, as we were supposedly linked with him. Personally, i think he's finished as a prem player but will be a top championship player.

i agree with you there FEn but if he does well in championship and you go back into prem he will be a decent player again.

GET RID OF HESKEY I NEVER VOTED. 4 GOALS IS A DISGRACE $ A STRIKER.

Four goals is a disgrace but as time went on he looked a player devoid of confidence. Maybe the fight in the Championship will wake him back up again? Also, is he an out and out goalscorer or would he be better as a target man for Jermome and Forsell to play off?
