With Mark Viduka becoming fit again, Kevin Keegan has talked about the Aussie International and says he can be a huge bonus for Newcastle in the last 9 games.
Mark Viduka – can be huge bonus for us in last 9 games
It’s hard for us to disagree with Kevin on that one.
Kevin Keegan talked about Mark Viduka on Thursday:
â€œIf heâ€™d been fit and available, Mark is the kind of player you want on your teamsheet every week,â€
â€œYou always want your best players available, but forwards who can score you goals and win you matches and who have experience, you need them especially.â€
â€œIf we can have a fit Mark Viduka for the last nine games, thatâ€™ll be a huge bonus for us.â€
â€œI get on really well with Mark and Iâ€™ve never had a bust-up with any player at this club, and thatâ€™s the truth.â€
â€œHeâ€™s got this fantastic ability to score goals in tight situations and to score goals at important times. Thatâ€™s what wins you football matches.â€
â€œ You saw Fernando Torres the other night score a goal [for Liverpool] when a lot of players would have taken another touch, and Mark comes into that category, too.”
“He doesnâ€™t need a lot of space, he can do the unexpected.â€
We’re not sure Mark is as good as Torres, 😀 who has been in world class form for Liverpool this season.Â His winning goal on Tuesday or the Reds against Inter-Milan was just sublime. But we certainly understand the point Kevin is making.
To be honest, we’ve blasted Mark a bit since Saturday, because he seems to have been out injured all this season, and has hardly contributed to the side this season, plus he’s on huge wages.
But we’re clear that if we do manage to survive this season, there will be 3-4 players who will have done the job for Newcastle when it really mattered, when the chips were down.
These players will in essence have saved the club from relegation and a catastrophe that would be on Tyneside, as it would us back 2-3 years.
They are usually called heroes, and we have no doubt whatsoever,Â that Mark can be one of those players – if only he can stay fit.
