Ex-West Ham United striker Marlon Harewood was the clear winner in the Vital Villa player of the month poll for February.

The result matches that of the official website’s player of the month poll that suggested that the super-sub Marlon is doing the business for Villa, despite huge scepticism following his arrival from West Ham last summer.

It either shows one of two things, either Marlon is making a massive influence on games, or the rest of the players are playing particularly poorly, as Harewood amassed just 107 minutes on the pitch, out of the 270 available to him as O’Neill kept the faith with Carew and Agbonlahor upfront.

Harewood pulled in 46.77% of the vote in the Vital Villa forums, way ahead of the joint-second players Young and Carew both on 16.13%. 3rd place went to defender Martin Laursen, who currently leads the “player of the season so far” vote on the Vital Villa front page.

Nice one Marlon, you’re my hero!
