A rare piece of good business by Madrid. The 8m (approx) they paid for him undervalued him. Getting 17m for a 5th choice that you want to get rid of is extremely good work, I'm amazed Newcastle agreed to pay that much.
Shearer-Owen with Luque supplying should be good. Dyer, Emre, Parker across the middle (I know Emre is injured at the mo'). All they need now is a couple of centre backs that can swing a foot at a ball and connect, which would have got them a draw at the weekend.
