West Ham Striker Linked To Villa

West Ham Striker Linked To Villa

This isn't exactly one of those rumours that will get the claret and blue juices flowing but ho hum!

According to the Times Aston Villa have made an approach for West Ham United for striker Marlon Harewood. The report suggests he will be sold if Hammers boss Alan Curbishley can find a replacement.

As we reported via our podcast the other day, Martin O'Neill appears to be getting more and more frustrated with the transfer window saying:

'It's absolutely no different to what I expected. It's been the same every single January since this foolish rule was brought into being. Every single club in Europe is looking at this window, because it's the only opportunity to try and do business.'

Adding: 'By the same token I don't want to be held to ransom, but obviously at the same time very aware that we'll like to try and strengthen the squad. All the things that have come into being I expected anyway.'

Not sure what he means by the being held to ransom, although with Watford apparently wanting £9million for Ashley Young, I don't suppose you have to stretch your imagination too far to guess.

Marlon Harewood, not exactly one to set pulses racing, but if he gets goals and plays for the team none of us can complain. Are we also starting to see the benefits of a 'hungry' Milan Baros, could MO'N do the same for Baros as what he did to Henrik Larsson?

Marlon No Thanks!!! but if other targets are un obtainable I guess it adds to the number of mediocre players we already have at the club

he might be cack, but didn't he get a hattrick against us last season? :o( Probably a load of rubbish rumour anyway, I guess he is the strong type like Hartson who MON signed for Celtic. Have to have faith in MON for whoever he chooses, it is his reputation and job on the line, easier for us to pick and choose!!

I personally don't rate him, always looks tired. Like DV though he always amanges to score against us. No premiership sides are selling or buying, makes sense to be honest

Harewood is a sensible short term option. I think MON has been well and truly frustrated in the transfer window and is now looking for solid bargain buys to keep us afloat. Looks as though the serious spending will have to wait until summer.

I think our previous gaffer would have spent 20 mil by now
