He who walks on water, Brian Little, says that Marlon Harewood will become a major success at Villa.
In a report in the Birmingham Mail, the former Villa striker and manager said:
'Martin O'Neill has a knack of getting the best out of players. Lots of people are interested to see how Marlon does this season. The key is Martin O'Neill - he is capable of getting the best out of anyone and everyone. And Marlon is certainly capable. It is no concern to me. It is not a bad signing at all.'
Adding this great quote, 'You can't always get the best apples out of the tree all the time. He is fairly typical of the modern player, it is just the all-round consistency that separates the top-of-the-tree players from those who eek out a living. The season before last he was marvellous and people were eating their words. Then last season everything that could go wrong, did go wrong for West Ham. So it was no surprise that the team was broken up, but I think he can do well from this.'
