Big Marlon: Enjoying life in the dressing room.
In his most recent interview, on loan Toon assassin, Marlon Harewood, opened his heart on Aston Villa, getting back into form, new strike partner Andy Carroll and the spirit in the Newcastle dressing room under the ‘Chuckle Brothers’ dream team of Chris Hughton and Colin Calderwood.

Harewood, who has been under some pressure to perform after a lean spell where he hasn’t been getting much match practice, explained how he finally feels that the cobwebs have finally been blown away, and he is ready to perform for Newcastle United.

Harewood kicked off:

“I do feel as if I’m getting back into the groove.

“It’s nice to be back involved on a matchday again and I can feel myself getting stronger and sharper. I’ve had to get used to the players here but I feel it’s starting to come together. If I can get a few goals as well I think that will help me.”

Moving on to the spirit in the dressing room, and the chance to get in some much needed playing time, Harewood added:

“I couldn’t believe the spirit in the camp. It’s unbelievable. I didn’t expect to come into such a warm environment.

“When you read everything that was going on in the summer, I didn’t expect to find a team which pulls together so well.”

On wanting to stay, he went on:

“The main focus of everyone here is just to get Newcastle back into the Premier League and I would love to stay and be a part of that if the manager wants me. I did feel as though I needed to get out of Aston Villa. I wanted to be playing and I wasn’t doing that. I needed to find an alternative and Newcastle gave me this opportunity.

“I didn’t feel as if I’d ever get a chance at Villa. They’ve got a lot of strikers at the club and such good players. I was involved with the squad, but I wasn’t getting a game on a Saturday and that’s really frustrating after a while.”

Harewood finally moved on to new strike partner, Andy Carroll. On the big Gatesheed lad, he remarked:

“I knew a little bit about him before I came, but he has really impressed me. In fact it’s nice to play alongside someone like him. He’s a young guy, he’s always fresh and he gets you really up for it. I don’t think of myself as old, but obviously I’m at a different stage of my career and he has given me a new lease of life really.

“He makes you want to go out there and give it everything. I want to help him, it’s been really nice to have met someone like him.

“He’s still only 20 and I’m sure he is going to get even stronger. He’s going to be a nightmare for defenders. They’ve done a really good job here with him and the coaches deserve a lot of credit for that. I think he has an excellent career ahead of him if he carries on like he is at the moment.”

No doubt, time will tell on the return of Harewood’s form upfront. Good luck Marlon!

    1) I can’t resist taking the mickey out of footballers.
    2) I want to get more lasses in.
    3) Geordie Deb might like ’em.

  4. I wish I could, batty. Lasses are a friggin’ nightmare! <<<< tell me aboot it  just give me wife another 800 quid too spend on xmas  best get meself down the bookies and win it back lol

  5. Mine just asked for money for new boots. I told her next month.
    She asked me how much I’d be spending at the match tonight.

    Tonight’s ‘policy’ allowed me a smug response.

  6. You’re not black? 8O

    Must be weird, what with you living in The Black Country?

    Edited – Thought I’d better change it to capitals in case someone thought I was being racist.

  7. still, least she asked eh? lol
    sure I got stiffed somewhere, when we got married she wanted a joint account, my wages go in there and hers go into her account, sure there’s a problem with that logic :( lol

  8. Shows you how highly Harewood is rated. 25 responses and not even mentioned. Think I agree with the silence!

  9. he suffers from the same problem as Heskey I think Georgio, big lad who still seems to get shoved off the ball without any real trouble, current situation we need fighters – and Carroll does it so much better

  10. Don’t we have enough fighters at the club.
    Here’s me thinking we need a bit of flair.
    No dis danny.

  11. none taken
    by fighters I mean those that are all pulling together, flair would be nice, but it’s got to lead somewhere, at the minute as the players keep saying, all the teams want our heads so we’re better off keeping it simple

  12. Fair enough mate, i get ya.
    Aye, we are a traveling cup final, & no mistake.
    It is the first time in years that i actually believe that there is some ‘proper’ team spirit in the locker room like.

  13. problem with being at the top of the tree is that everyone below wants a shot at you, thats what CH was saying, on the road, grind them out, if you wanna show off, do it in your own backyard!

  14. I was just about to say that Marlon reminds me of Heskey.  I’m still amazed at how Heskey still gets games for England.
    You don’t need flair in the Championship.
    Skill yes, flair no.

  17. Danny-boy
