Well said Ricky. With Morientes and Cisse as twin strikers we might as well put Hyppia and Carrager up front with better results. At least they would tightly mark the opposing defence. Kuyt and Defoe would be good buys. Andy Johnson would be another possibility, he played very well for Palace as a lone striker and was second highest scorer in the league. Not bad for a team that got relegated. He is fast, clinical and not bad in the air either.
If we were to go to Rafa's motherland, David Villa of Valencia once our rumoured target is also a very decent striker. Has done very well this season as a lone striker, is deadly in the box, heads the ball well and recently scored from more than 40 yards. We could do worse.
I like Andy Johnson. He is a striker with maturity. He is better than Defoe. He would be cheaper than Defoe. I guess Johnson will be less than 5 million, Defoe will be double of it, Kuyt will be in between.
If Owen stays injured for most part of this season, Newcastle will surely come to the market for strikers as well, especially since Shearer will retire this summer. After Souness, they may not bid up the price by too much.
