'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Freddy'sThe Cheque Book

Alan Shearer says manager Glenn Roeder will have to get Freddy Shepherd to flash the cash this summer, as United go into a new league campaign paper-thin up front.

Shearer: 'There's no question we're terribly thin now with my retirement, the long-term injury to Michael Owen, and the departure of Michael Chopra.
There's only Shola Ameobi left and that means Newcastle will need to be active in the transfer market.

'I'm devastated for Michael, for Newcastle, and for England. It's a terrible injury which I wouldn't wish on anybody - but he'll be back.

'I'm seeing an awful lot of games out here and I'm speaking to Glenn on a regular basis over names of players who could do a job for Newcastle. As things stand there is a need to buy as soon as possible once the World Cup is over.'

We need to sign two world class centre forwards. Ideally, ones with proven premiership goalscoring abilities, based on the market place at the moment, that would potentially allow us to think about Darren Bent, Jermaine Defoe and Ruud van Nistelrooy. I would personally like to see Bent and Torres come. Both great potential - both already made names for themselves, both hungry and both athletic and could partner Michael Owen easily, if we had Owen and Luque to add to that, then, we would be strong.

As for the guy who was saying we should compete more with Portsmouth than Tottenham. We have spent more time above Spurs, they have been our whipping boys on a fairly regular basis and we have rarely finished below Spurs. We have a bigger ground and a better team, we offloaded Jenas cos he was naff and got Parker who is light years better. We also beat Spurs at home and were unlucky to leave white hart lane with nothing.
