Thanks To Marlon Harewood

A quick thanks to Marlon Harewood.

Thanks for not once moaning whether in or out the team.

Thanks for keeping your head down and waiting for your chance.

Thanks for not taking offence at the fans moaning about your arrival.

Thanks for wearing the shirt with pride.

Thanks for making a difference and playing with passion.

And most of all, thanks for looking like you give a shit.

Marlon Harewood, not the first choice as a new arrival in the summer I admit, but nevertheless, I salute you sir.

Marlon is showing why MON bought him. First class attitude, and proving so many (including me) wrong. I join the salute.

Brilliant player and very hard working! Did so well at West Ham when Pards was there! I do like him a lot.

Dont anybody go overboard. '48 will be accusing you all of describing him as a legend before too long. Well done Marlon. You've handled yourself with dignity, unlike the voices that spoke out at the time of your signing for the club.

I have to hold my hands up and say I was one of those berrating him as low quality when we signed him. I thought the man was just not what we should be looking for, and then the Tottenham disappointment just compounded that for me. Everyone makes mistakes though, and he's definitely come good as a valuable squad member over the last few outings. Clearly a pretty decent player with talent there, but as a few people have mentioned - he really deserves most credit for his attitude and commitment. Well done Marlon, and well done MON too for seeing the player in there and having faith in his ability to drag it back out. Right, now can I have some cream on my humble pie please?

Agreed, well deserved praise. I would also give the same praise to Zat Knight - has performed well when needed (except a couple of isolated lapses) and has kept his head down and trained hard when he hasn't been in the team

Top comments, 100% agree. Marlon needs a song! He'll go and chase everything on the pitch if we get him even further pumped up. Any suggestions?

His song til now seems to have been "Feed the Hare & he will score" A little bit strange that one IMO.

"Feed the Hare and he will score" comes from teh Man City song "Feed the Goat and he will score" about Shaun Goater. I like it.

I want to thank him for his dribble on 87 minutes against the toon where he started slowly then burst past 3 toons and just about scored after a little give and go with Carew. Keep it coming, Marlon.

Great comment. Can I suggest a song. To the theme of The Flintstones. "Marlon, Marlon Harewood, He's the greatest sub in history. From the, bench at Villa, He's gonna ***** over the City" Ok needs some work but its my 1st attempt at writing a song.
