Great rumour spotted on the Popbitch message board â€“ so it must be true (coughs nervously, hires expensive litigation lawyer etc.). Anyway, this scurrilous
rumour lie alleges that Michael Owen texted the following message to his old mate Alan Shearer, as Shearer was sat in the BBC studio with his pundit’s hat on:
The manager’s a c**t. Looks like we’ll have to do it ourselves :(
Obviously not true, of course (coughs nervously again), but amusing all the same.
