Double Signing Puts a Pair of Aces in Our Pack

Article excerpt

It's fantastic to have Owen but even better to have Nobby back as he should never been sold in the first place. ( BILLY, Blaydon

FINALLY we've got someone with pace up front. Before Owen, we didn't have anyone with pace that could overtake a caravan going uphill. ( ANDY BURNS, Holy Cross

IT'S good to have width and attacking options. ( ADAM TONES, Ouston

OWEN and Solano a great double signing. Solano will supply the crosses for Shearer and Owen to score the goals. Great business. ( JAMIE, Jesmond

LAST week I urged Mr Shepherd to bring in three players. This he has done to prove me and a lot of other doubters wrong. Nobby the icing. Well done. ( FRED, North Shields

MAGNIFICENT! Brilliant double signing. ( BIG ETHEL

IT'S great to see Michael Owen. I hope he and Shearer team up well. Welcome back, Nobby. ( MICHAEL ROBSON, Gateshead

BACK in business with two great signings. …
