    Featured: That was the week that was (Feb 8-14 2020)

    I think you’ve actually answered Chris’s question about why the club doesn’t celebrate Owen on social media a couple of paragraphs further up, when you say that Twitter attracts the lunatic fringe (and again, even further up, when mentioning the response to Pedro’s tweet). I expect that any birthday messages etc. from the club to Owen would be swamped with abusive responses. So probably best not to for Owen’s sake. Social media is full of bellends. The club employs him as its International Ambassador so he’s not been frozen out.
  2. All players leave the club eventually. The problem with Owen wasn't that he left the club. The problem is that he deliberately ran down his contract whilst leading Moores and Parry on that he was going to re-sign, finally leaving for a fraction of his worth about two weeks before the transfer deadline. Then he went and signed for Man Utd. The problem with Souness wasn't - at the time - so much that he did the interview with the S*n. I might be misremembering, so someone correct me if I'm wrong, but no-one was really bothered when the interview was published. The problem was that about a week later, he staged a photo for them of him kissing his new wife in hospital and they published it on 15th April. Literally the third anniversary of Hillsborough with parents, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters still grieving and he's posing on the front page of that rag with some headline about how amazingly happy he is. So I'm not really comparing what they did except to say what Souness did was far worse. I'm comparing their reactions since. Souness has pretty consistently apologised, expressed remorse, said it's the worst thing he's ever done, and taken full responsibility for his actions.
  3. Souness is the guest I would most like to listen to on Carra’s podcast. The difference between Souness and Owen is that, whilst what Souness did was far worse, he completely owns it and, since leaving the club, has repeatedly apologised with no excuses.

    Yes. He puts in the initial cross that leads to the goal: https://twitter.com/jack_ncfc/status/1224806327052050432?s=21
