Mark Viduka – has played great the last two games
Bobby Robson was delighted to see both Michael Owen and Mark Viduka score against Fulham and the fomrer Newcastle and England manager fully expects both to be pivotal players in the run-in to the league.
â€œItâ€™s great to see Michael Owen getting two goals in two games and heâ€™s still a vital player,â€ â€œMark Viduka has been a maestro.”
“Heâ€™s the kind of player who can have you purring with delight when heâ€™s playing well or tearing your hair out when heâ€™s not, but heâ€™ll be very important in the next few weeks.â€
We’ve certainly criticized Mark a bit lately, but his goal on Saturday was just superb, and we know because we’ve watched it about 100 times now. 😀
What was noticeable with Mark on Saturday was he was really fired up and you could see that in his face when he scored. He’s everything we needed on Saturday, and credit to all the players but particularly the three front men of Mark, Owen and Martins, who looked so threatening and so good throughout the game.
We just need the team to play like Saturday for the rest of the season, and even improve so we can get away from relegation zone before too long.
You can vote on how you think we’ll do against Tottenham on Sunday – in the poll to the right.
