Newcastle signs Owen

The great wait is over. Michael Owen will not be returning to Liverpool. Instead, he will now be a Magpie. Before all the Liverpool fans start yelling trator, Owen was left with really no other option. Liverpool offered £8 million transfer fee and Newcastle put forward £16 million. Guess who Real Madrid liked best.

So it seems like Real told Owen he could either go to Newcastle or stay warming the bench in Madrid. With the transfer window ending tomorrow and with him needing to play this year, he really had no other option. It will be interesting to see how this changes the Magpies attacking style. I also can't wait for Dec. 26th when Newcastle goes to Liverpool. It should be fun to watch.
