Deja Vu

Benitez looks to the past, again

Has the man completely run out of ideas?

With the big names at Newcastle (Given, Owen, Duff, um, Butt) likely to demand relocation once the transfer window inches open again, it seems that The Spoiler might have inadvertently predicted the future for dinky little Michael Owen. Only a week ago the big talk was that Benitez was going to wage war on Villa in a bid for Wigan tough guy Emile Heskey, and now the loud clamour in all of the football gossip salons is that Owen is a target too – we joked about that, but it seems that Rafa was reading with a very straight face.

In which case, Benitez, for your next challenge: Ian Rush?
