My name is Michael Owen. I am aspirational, charismatic and fully fit, I promise. It’s great to be back in red, representing a world-class brand
I know Fergie is a pensioner, but what the dickens is he doing rummaging around in the charity-shop cassette basket?
Michael Owen is wanted by Hull and Stoke; the champions of England and the world (but not Europe) should not be going after players wanted by Phil Brown and Tony ‘Yes, I do wear this cap to bed’ Pulis.
I presume Scousers are loving this story to the hilt? I know I would.
Fergie would be better off re-signing Guiseppe Rossi or Diego Forlan than bringing in a player who I imagine hates United in his heart – if indeed Little Mickey has a heart. Or take a chance on Fraizer Campbell.
And didn’t Ferguson ditch Louis Saha partly because he was always on the treatment table? If so, does he really think Owen’s much-twanged hamstrings can take another season at the highest level?
This is a sorry state of affairs for United, who can’t seem to get any young, top-class players to come to Manchester. What’s up with that? Did C-Ron tell every footballer in Europe how crappy it is in the north-west of England?
Of course, the other side of this coin is that Fergie knows what he’s doing (as he’s proved time and time again), whereas I’m just some idiot with a keyboard and internet access. There is a lot of truth in that – if I point it out now, I save you the trouble – but I don’t see how Owen is a good fit at Old Trafford, even if he might bag the odd goal as a sub.
What’s your opinion on the Owen rumour? (It is just a rumour, let’s not forget that.)
Sh*t Lookalikes: Michael Owen and Owen Hargreaves
Can Rooney and Owen play together?
