Normally the captain would be from defence or middfield so they can see the game,but in this case Owens is a good choice,because he spends most off his time watching.Iwould share it with Vaduka,then they can compare notes during the game. Keegan needs to take a good look at what he has got,and start buying players,if the owner will give him some money.<biggrin>

Looking at the current NU squad, it's obvious they will do well to finish around mid table.They only need about another 10 to push for a top half spot.
Newcastle have the potential to be a very good side, they just seem to either over spend on players or spend a lot of money on the wrong players, there are too many examples to name. With what they have now i would line up like this.GivenBaye Taylor Rozenhal Enrique Smith Guthrie GuttierezMartins Duff OwenThe first thing that needs doing is sorting out the defence with a top centre half as priority then they can start to build the rest of the squad slowly
With what we have atm:Given or Harper (not fussed)Beye Taylor Faye EnriqueGutierrez Butt MilnerOwen (C)Viduka MartinsSubs: Given or Harps, Cacapa (rather not tbh), Duff, N'Zogbia, Guthrie, LuaLua, Geremi or another youngster.Milner, guthrie and zoggy are interchangeable in that midfield position i think, i like them all. If it is true that viduka has improved his fitness, he must play, the guy is quality, but he must run more than he did last season!
Having seen some of the teams selected, it makes you realise what a poor squad Newcastle have at the moment.In fact, I'd say it was dire.Where is the injection of cash that's required to bring in some really quality players?
Its not all about injection of cash, especially at newcastle. They have spend lots of money before and not got the sucess with it. The main problem and first that needs dealing with is the manager. They need to strengthen the defence and maybe a cm and then let them gel and then build the team from that
Newcastle need 2 centre backs, 2 full backs, 3 midfielders, a better manager and sum service to viduka

Newcastle are one of my favorite teams.Owen is the right man for the job, he is always posotive, urging every on(even if there losing 3-0)and he has been at Newcaste for ages and I think he will stay there for even more.
