Xisco and Nacho

Premier League Newcastle United

comment on the article

Xisco for 7-odd-million and Gonzalez on loan for the season, guess this is showing some promise towards the end of the transfer window.

What are your thoughts on these two and who else do you think will be entering St. James' today?

Guess its better late than never ay?

I would rather have signed Gonzalez permantly! But I suppose it is better than nothing, maybe if he does really well we'll off valencia something for him

If we sign Heskey we'll win the league comfortably(it would have been touch and go otherwise). As the brummy fans used to say "walking in a heskey wonderland", or "oh dec, you're so brave".

So it looks like we've signed a midfielder & a striker.

I was hopen for a decent defender or two if i'm honest. Yeah we're light in attack but we're worse off in defence.

Maybe another loan signing and someone decent before the window shuts. *fingers crossed*

well then, what do you reckon the team will be against Hull in a couple of weeks time, I guess Jonas and Zog have cemented their places on the wings? Martins is injured, so I suppose Owen and Xisco up front? though we might have to wait to see our new signings, could be Owen and Smith or Owen and Viduka (if hes fit), OR Owen, Viduka and Xisco/Smith, with Butt and Guthrie in the mids, Enrique Colo Taylor and Beye at the back, how many players on our team speak spanish nowadays? The Hull game would def. be a good time to start Xisco though, he scores lots of goals, I'd go with


Owen Xisco
Zog Guthrie Gonzalez Jonas
Enrique Colo Taylor Beye

more likely be

Owen Smith
Zog Butt Guthrie Jonas
Enrique Colo Taylor Beye

is there anywhere one can find out how long players are suspected to be out for?

Our signings in the summer have been ok. Gutierrez looks a class act and Guthrie and Coloccini seem good as well. Still James Milner will be sorely missed. We still need a left back like Warnock or Baines as Enrique is not up to it. SELL UP ASHELY

From a fully fit squad, what would your front pairing be?

Stick with Martins & Owen or is Xisco a genuine contender?
