At least it’s taken the man’s mind off Thierry “must be banned from playing in the 2010 World Cup” Henry for a minute or two. Check out some of Henry’s recent tweets.
World Cup 2010: Fabio Capello’s forward thinking must include Michael Owen
Amazing double rainbow over Old Trafford – Michael Owen will hope to find a crock of gold there for #Manchester United v Moscow tonight
Good to see Warnock in England squad, putting pressure on Bridge. No place for Owen, sadly but inevitably. It’ll take an injury to Defoe 1s
Listening to good Radio5 debate on passes of the season, consensus being Lampard has had best 2 v Bolton. What about Giggs to Owen v City?
Watching England-Brazil from 07 on Qatar TV. Strike-force? A Smith & M Owen. Seems a long time ago. 1-1 draw. England would love that again
Lawro right on MOTD. England must take 5 strikers to WC: Roo Emile Crouch Defoe Owen. Bet Fabio doesn’t. Hope Sven calls admitting 06 errors
Poor Owen…didn’t score v Everton but impressed with clever runs. And then Defoe, the striker who bars his way back for England, scores 5!!
Just found Capello’s restaurant in Cape Town: no flip-flops allowed, no mobiles, no tomato sauces – and no Michael Owen. Just Joking
A worrying omen for England-USA…Defoe’s pen saved by Howard! Poor pen. Would Owen have netted? He usually gets his England pens, 4 of 4
Michael Owen scores big goals in big games. No English striker consistently takes up more intelligent positions. He must go to the World Cup.
And don’t forget ’01 Super Cup: further to tributes to Owen’s destruction of German defences, he put LFC winner past Bayern’s Kahn in Monaco.
