Are We Ready For 'The Rocket Man'?

Are We Ready For 'The Rocket Man'?

Our big summer signing, Albert Luque, will play a part at some stage of the match at Everton, but will start on the bench.

Albert Luque: 'I've had a few difficult weeks due to the injury but now I'm ready to play again I am very eager to show the fans what I am made of. I turned up obviously wanting to do well as quickly as possible in a new country so it was especially disappointing to get such a bad injury which spoiled the beginning of my new experience.

'The club has invested heavily in my services but that sort of pressure gives me extra motivation. Now I just want to get myself fully fit and playing again. Then I am sure things will be fine. The only way I can show I am worth it is on the pitch and I am determined to do so.

'I realise the price Newcastle paid for me is quite big in terms of world football but I faced a similar scenario a few years ago when I moved from Mallorca to Deportivo.'

Graeme Souness: 'Luque will be very good for us. Given time he will make an enormous impact at Newcastle. I see Luque as the type of player our crowd likes. He is good at set pieces and has a rocket in his boots. He will excite our supporters.'

Vital Pre-Match - Newcastle v Crystal Palace

A draw against Liverpool was certainly a point gained than points lost as at half time at Anfield we were dead and buried. Alan Pardew's Crystal Palace must be beaten though!
