    Viana who? Not for long, believes Robson

    Even though Hugo Viana had just been voted the best young player in Europe, few in England had heard of the Portugal international when he arrived at Newcastle for £8.5 million this summer. Sir Bobby Robson, though, is convinced that very soon the gifted midfielder will be a household name...

    Anyone with any thoughts as to how Viana fits into a best-case lineup, where everybody is healthy?

    If Viana shines on the left (assuming he plays there in Robert's absence), he'll be hard to displace from the lineup upon Laurent's return... I wonder if he'd be inserted into the midfield, possibly displacing Gary Speed (also now injured).

    Should be very interesting to see how the young Portuguese player turns out.
