They turned down you down, they turned you down!
Once upon a time there was a man who played as a striker that famously turned down a team that play in red.
He deserved to win something for his efforts but in the end he didn't win anything but boy did he score some goals for the Geordies, 206 in total.
Now it appears that history has repeated itself on a much smaller scale and hopefully this time it ends in silverware.
Mark Viduka isn't as big a name as Alan Shearer and Middlesbrough aren't a big club like Man United.
But history has repeated itself, in a way!
Viduka banged in 19 goals last season for the Teessiders last season but now he will sign for Newcastle and possibly link up with Michael Owen.
Owen's future remains uncertain but if he does stay, where will that leave 17 goal Oba Martins?
And at a crucial time in his career having just recovered from injury, what about Shola?
More importantly for United though Owen and Viduka can provide the goals and Martins and Shola would challenge or play a part in some kind of rotation.
However, Martins wouldn't accept being third choice at Newcastle but Shola would probably battle on.
And if Andy Carroll can somehow get in there, it would be fully deserved to get past so many high profile and more experienced names.
Looking at the kid's confidence in the ressies at Kingston Park on those cold nights last season when others were sat at home watching The Apprentice or something, he has actually got a load of talent to offer Newcastle United.
I don't want to tempt fate after watching shot shy United register just one goal from open play in their last half a dozen goals last season, but are we on the brink of a Toon goal rush?
