Sounds as though he might be off to Nottingham Forest now that a Kuwaiti family has taken over.

 

Read a good article on his bad career decisions a few days back:

 

In Bed With Maradona - The Award Winning Home Of World Football - JOURNAL - THE END OF MICHAEL*OWEN

 

He really should have bided his time back in 2006 and called Madrid's bluff.

just love how no-one gives a fuck about him anymore to get this thread going!

 

am not so sure he was as desperate to come back as he made out, he could've easily forced it, Sven was never going to not take him to the world cup

It's quite sad when you think about it. Once he was one of the most feared strikers in the world, he had the world at his feet and fucked us off, injuries did him in and now he is forgotten/ despised by all the clubs he played for.

I'd have him back on a pay as you play deal, Owen is a superior player compared to Bellamy.

 

And bitterness is not my kind of thing either.

Have you clocked him on Twitter recently aside from behind really really boring, he's whoring his ass out on Twitter to all and sundry, boy has no shame.

Humble, and ever so modest.

I see the Twitter rumour mill is at it again! As I've previously said, my next club will either be abroad or in The Premier League.

Not being disrespectful when saying I wouldn't play in The Championship. Always said I wouldn't drop down the leagues like some have done.

After playing for Liverpool, Real Madrid, Newcastle, Man Utd and England I don't think I would enjoy that football.

 

michael owen ‏@themichaelowen

If a good opportunity doesn't come my way then so be it. At this stage of my career it has to be something that I'm going to enjoy doing.

 

michael owen ‏@themichaelowen

I know I can still bang them in at the top level. I proved that nearly every time I played for Man Utd. At 32, still got a few years in me.

A few years left in him? He's a lunatic. The fact he's even on Twitter so much blowing his own trumpet proves he's a lunatic. If I had that kind of dollar I wouldn't even have a phone, I'd be on an island somewhere with the demeanor of a drink-sodden, sex-addled wreck.

I feel no animosity towards him and never have.

 

Few players turn Real Madrid down.

 

The United move was a bit twattish given he played for us, but if truth be known he always came across as a bit of a twat.

You can't compare Robo to that little get.

 

Owen is the prototype from Robocop 2, the one that pulls it's own head off.

It appears Code has never seen Bellamy play and hasn't seen Owen play for about 7 years either

 

Give Owen games and he will give you goals, we need a poacher and he is a poacher, I doubt his wage demands would be all that either.

 

Owen for the mancs:

11/12: 7 (3+4) games - 5 goals

10/11: 17 (4+13) games - 5 goals

09/10: 31 (11+20) games - 9 goals

 

Owen for Newcastle:

08/09: 32 (24+8 ) games - 10 goals

07/08: 32 (27+5) games - 12 goals

 

 

Bellamy for Liverpool:

11/12: 37 (18+19) games - 9 goals

apologies I actually misread what you said and thought you'd said Owen was a more complete player for some reason , if its about goals Owen per game would win over Bellamy hands down, however if he was expected to be a regular or even a semi regular I doubt he'd manage to stay fit to start more than ten games a season although obviously Bellamy isn't the most reliable player to be able play every week either

 

add in that Owen is a massive cunt and the poacher we need needs to be able to play regularly, he can stick to sitting around playing with horses rejecting the best offers he can get

He has scored 44 league goals since he left us 8 years ago. Do some sums with those digits.

His injuries would obviously be a major factor in such a deal thats why I said pay as you play deal.

 

My point is more that I could not care less about the fact he has played for the mancs for 3 seasons now and once did not do as rafa wanted him to do, I'm too old for that kind of shite.
