Marlon Harewood - Best Value So Far

Marlon Harewood - Best Value So Far

Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by Yatey Villain:

Who is the best value signing in the Premiership so far (excluding 'silly money' moves and erm, Kieran Richardson).

Marlon Harewood (34%)
Steve Sidwell (28%)
Steven Davis (13%)
Craig Bellamy (4%)
Eduardo da Silva (4%)
Mark Viduka (4%)
Ryan Babel (3%)
Geremi (2%)
Joey Barton (2%)
Phil Jagielka (2%)
Olivier Kapo (1%)
Gareth Bale (1%)
David Nugent (1%)
Jason Koumas (1%)

So there you go, despite the furore on the Marlon Harewood transfer, the majority thought his £3.7million signing from West Ham was the best value so far this summer!

Must admit I think Steven Davis was a bargain for Fulham, wish he was still in the claret and blue, but hey ho.

Our latest poll asks your opinion on the transfer window so far, worried or not?

Sidwell for free is better (I voted for Sidwell) although his wages are obviously HUGE at Chelsea so maybe some people had that in mind.

If sidwell were joining a team where he was likely to play week in week out then i'd think if was value for money, but joining the bench at chelsea seems like a waste of money/talent. Davis if he bucks his ideas up could be a snip at 4mil.

One not on the list that should be is McCann. Ok not the best quality but for £1 million I think he'll be a great signing for Bolton. Not that we could have got much more as he wasn't exactly on a new contract so prabably a good deal for all concerned. I voted for Sidwell but I must say, I think it's an absolute waste of talent for him to go to Chelsea, he'll be lucky to get on their bench.

who ever voted for harewood should have there heads examined he is easily the worst signing of the summer for any team. we need at least four more players and if we dont sign more we will struggle.

I have to say it wasn't the answer I was expecting when I posted the Poll. I personally voted for Sidwell, but thought both Davis and Geremi would have also run him close....
