    The Michael Owen brochure - why the Newcastle striker is not a spent force a spe

    EXCLUSIVE: The Michael Owen brochure - 32-pages detailing why the Newcastle striker in not a spent force

    According to the sales pitch, Michael Owen is now ‘seeking the right opportunity to remind people why he was once crowned European Footballer of the Year’.

    The trouble is: he had it. As his representatives point out, repeatedly, in their brochure, he appeared in 75 per cent of Newcastle United’s Premier League games in the last two seasons.
    In 2008-09 alone, he had reminder opportunities against Bolton Wanderers, Coventry City, Arsenal, Hull City, West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur, Blackburn Rovers, Everton, Aston Villa, Fulham, Wigan Athletic, Chelsea, Middlesbrough, Stoke City, Portsmouth, Liverpool and Manchester City.

    That's it shove the knife in. Typical of the press to hang him out to dry. He did not become a bad player overnight. many of his Newcastle appearances were as a substitute, coming back from yet another injury.
    I do not think he is a bad player or a bad person. Playing for series of managers, without much support for his game, in a club looking for relegation does not help. OK so he has had bad press for gambling and his liking for horses. He gets the going rate for his job, disgusting thopugh that may be, it's not his problem.
    Get off his back and give the fella a chance. Fuckin scummy british press.

    Owen had a better strike rate than Tevez the last two seasons.

    It's a gamble though.

    Rather keep Tevez and have your lot take Owen though

    Owen has had a few shit years since leaving Liverpool. Maybe he's learned his lesson and i hope he does well for Utd this season. He's not a bad player when he's motivated. Over to you Sir Alex.

    Maybe they (Alex and Michael) had a bet on a few race horses, Alex lost and ended up with Michael on his books.

    Personally I hope he does well, remains injury free and rekindles the talent that made him one of the most reliable strikers in the world.

    Publicity wise the United PR Machine will take every advantage of the air space and expectations Owen's signing will create.
