Marlon Harewood Poll Results & Odds

Marlon Harewood Poll Results & Odds

Vital Villa asked, before Marlon Harewood signed,

What do you think of the proposed Marlon Harewood signing? I did also put 'look at the stats' in the article I'd done (as 1 in 3 isn't a bad rate for a striker who costs £3.7m!)

Now he is 'ours' I'm sure the results would be different, maybe we'll ask again later in the summer once we have had some more arrivals.

The results were;

46% Gutted, thought these days were over.
22% Ok
14% Good
13% Average at best

That left 5% (West Ham fans?!) saying great signing, can't believe our luck!

William Hill have set the odds for Harewood nice and quickly!

They have him at: 9/5 to score 11 or more premiership goals, 11/4 for 9 or 10 goals and evens to score 8 or less. Slightly longer odds are for him to win the Premiership Golden Boot at 150/1.

A good bet at evens for a bench warmer!

Sorry but this type of poll is very negative and silly

Agreee totally with tarzan, let's judge him in time. He's being made a scapegoat because we expected a major signing. I hope he rams it down the doubters throats. I wasn't overly keen on him signing but he's here now so lets get behind him.

I think he could be a major signing for us, if he scores more than ten league goals this season. We need a decent cup run this season too.

makes you wonder just how much money we actually have! i dont actually thik that we have as much money as we think! Top bids on strikers- west ham- 16.5 on bent + 7.5 on bellamy +reported 14 on defoe(Probably not true!) tottenham- 16.5 on bent pompey- 8million on utaka+ nugent for 6. man city- bianchi was 8.8 even SUNDERLAND-paying totally over the odds for chopra+ bidding 6 illion for nugent! And obviously you have the man u'z and liverpools with 20 on torres and 17 on anderson which could also be added too with the 35 million pound swoop of carlos teves! middlesboro bidded 6million for smith! also arsenal with edquardo de silva at a large sum on 8.5 million!

I think we do have money, it's just that O'neill will not throw it around. We already have a really first rate striker in Carew. I think we'll play 4-3-3 this season. With Gab, Young, Maloney, Berger, Moore at some point playing as wingers/forwards. It also allows Barry to play inside with Petrov and Reo Coker. If Carew gets 15 that's a great return and the others all chip in we'll be looking good.

There were similar cries of derision when Ron Saunders signed a certain "Peter Withe". Enough said - give him a chance

If signing harewood pushes Luke Moore into, what I think he can be, through competition for the forward position then it will be the best £3.7m ever spent. If he bags 10+ himself then even better, lets get behind him and the rest of the squad. UTV

Erm - my sign in name is 'BobTheBuilder', but it looks like it's possible to also have 'bob the builder' (not my post)?
