Subject: Owen takes Newcastle option

Michael Owen has agreed to leave Real Madrid for Newcastle United,
where he will sign a four-year contract following a medical today.

Shearer factor
The 25-year-old had slipped down the pecking order at the Santiago
Bernabéu following the arrival of Brazilian duo Robinho and Julio
Baptista, and flew to England yesterday for talks with Newcastle and
Liverpool. His old club were thought to be leading the chase for
Owen, who instead chose to link up with his former England strike
partner Alan Shearer. Ironically, Owen's €23.5m switch to Tyneside
eclipses the €22m club-record fee Newcastle paid Blackburn Rovers FC
for Shearer in 1996.

'Proudest moment'
"Bringing Michael to St James' Park will rank alongside the signing
of Alan Shearer as my proudest moment at Newcastle United," said
chairman Freddy Shepherd. "Newcastle fans love centre-forwards and
Michael is a fantastic goalscorer. He's someone we would love to
build the team around and we hope he can help us bring success to
this club."

*********************************

Now that will be an interesting point to follow in the coming weeks!

Subject: Bouma buoyed by Villa switch

Aston Villa have signed centre-back Wilfred Bouma from Dutch
champions PSV Eindhoven for €5.1m.

Four-year contract
The 27-year-old has put pen to paper on a four-year contract before
linking up with the Netherlands squad ahead of their World Cup
qualifiers against Armenia and Andorra. Bouma said: "I am really
delighted to be joining Villa. I want to do my best to improve the
club."

New faces
Bouma, capped 20 times, is the second major arrival in a week for the
English side, following the addition of Czech Republic striker Milan
Baroš from Liverpool. Villa have now made six signings for the
2005/06 campaign with Patrik Berger, Aaron Hughes, Kevin Phillips and
Stuart Taylor the other newcomers.

*********************

I am not delighted with this move.
Sure, Bouma isn't a bad defender, but it seems like he is doing 1 big
mistake every game...

Subject: Van Bommel scoops Dutch award

Mark van Bommel was last night named the Dutch Footballer of the
Year, fending off a stiff challenge from Feyenoord striker Dirk Kuijt
and AZ Alkmaar midfielder Denny Landzaat.

Magnificent season
The 28-year-old performed magnificently last season as PSV Eindhoven
won the Eredivisie, Dutch Cup and reached the semi-finals of the
Champions League - his performances prompting Barcelona to tempt Van
Bommel to Camp Nou on a free transfer in May. After receiving the
Golden Shoe, the midfielder spoke of his desire to win a place in the
Netherlands' 2006 World Cup squad. "Barcelona are a big club with 25
major players so it's not strange that I won't play every week," he
said. "But I will prove myself when I play as I'm eager to travel to
Germany with the Dutch national team."

Michels honoured
It was fitting that the Silver Shoe was handed to Dirk Kuijt by
Feyenoord's legendary Swedish striker Ove Kindvall, while the forward
also received the leading scorer award after plundering 29 Eredivisie
goals last term. The Johan Cruyff award to the best talent in the
Netherlands went to Kuijt's team-mate Salomon Kalou, the scorer of 20
goals in 2004/05, while the former Ajax and Netherlands coach Rinus
Michels was honoured posthumously for his services to football. Hans
van Breukelen, the goalkeeper when Michels's side won EURO '88,
received the award from UEFA President Lennart Johansson.

Subject: Portilla to Club Bruges?

Here is an article from august 30th saying that Javier Portillo will be
loaned to Bruges for a season.

I wonder if that's true, as our board promised us a new striker if we
managed to qualify for the CL.

Well we will know today as the transfer market closes in 24 hours...

http://fr.sports.yahoo.com/050830/1/96ry.html

Javier Portillo "va d'ailleurs annoncer sa signature dans un club
belge", a ajouté M. Roussillon. Portillo va en fait être prêté une
saison au FC Bruges, champion de Belgique et qualifié pour la Ligue des
champions.
