Daily Poll: Should David Villa Start Against Osasuna?

Unrelated, but Villa has some nice boots

Ever since he made his return after a lengthy lay-off against Dinamo Bucureşti, the question on everyone’s mind has been "when will David Villa be ready to start?" Well, after making an encouraging cameo appearance against Real Sociedad in the first league match of the season, Tito Vilanova judged that Villa was ready to start against Sampdoria in the Joan Gamper Trophy. Playing an hour in that match, Villa couldn’t get on the scoresheet, but it was an important step in his recovery nonetheless and after sitting out Thursday’s win over Real Madrid in the Supercopa de España, there are many who believe that David Villa is ready to reclaim his place in the starting XI.

However, if you were Tito Vilanova, would you start El Guaje in tomorrow’s match against Osasuna, or would you wait until Wednesday and the second-leg against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu? Alternatively, would you leave him on the bench for both matches, or start him in both, knowing that two starts in such a short space of time would all but rule him out of a start against his former club Valencia in a week’s time?

Note: In yesterday’s poll, 60% thought that Valdés’ error will not cost Barcelona the Supercopa, while 40% believe that it will. Do you think that’s a fair representation of the scale of his error, or an exaggeration of a bad situation?

This poll has now closed, and the results are as follows: Yes=40% No, save him for the Clasico=24% He can start both=14% Shouldn't start either match-18%
