Poor old Michael Owen may have the money, the horses and the erm, money, but he does come across as a bit of an Alan Partridge. His latest Twitter own-goal came today when he joked about his daughter’s short school day, saying:

“Tears from my 3 year-old on her second day at school. Wouldn’t mind but all she does is play for two hours then come home.”

Cue some moderately humorous replies. He really does seem to lack quite a bit of self awareness, doesn’t he?

    I leave you with this famous Blackadder quote:

    Baldrick, have you no idea what irony is?
    Baldrick : Yeah! It’s like goldy and bronzy, only it’s made of iron.

    in owen’s defense, all these quips are referring to match day arent they? i’m no lee cattermole, but i was under the impression that a professional footballer’s day is rather grueling. and you arent given chocolate milk if you start crying

    @m,No chocolate milk? Fucking joke. Going to throw away my football now.

    This guy is such a boring cunt. His monotone boringness destroys brain cells by the million. What a prat, still desperately trying to stay “hip n releveant” in the public eye. Should get himself some M&S clothes and sit on the MOTD sofa with the other boring fuckers.

  7. Bruno says:

    Come now, Owen’s the most unlucky player ever. Before all the injuries he was simply top. Between 1997 – 2001 he did more than Wayne Rooney, for example, in his whole career. If Bale is worth Eur 100 after 2 great seasons today how much would cost a young Michael Owen these days?

    why is this under Liverpool? it should be under fail; Owen played many places besides LFC.
