Owen

Don't feel sorry for him as he is wealthier than I could ever dream of but it is a shame his career did not quite go as expected.

I wish him all the best despite being a scouser ! As an English man one of my all time favourite moments in football when he tore the Argentine defence apart I truly hoped we would have a world superstar for years to come

40 goals in something like 89 appearances for England is a fantastic contribution.

 

No idea how old he was when he stopped being called up (27/28 maybe) but if he had managed to stay fit we could have been talking about the greatest striker to ever play for England.

 

Sadly, once he left Liverpool it was a downward slope for him.

I've never liked Owen, always thought he was an over-rated, diving little sh*t. The thing I remember most about his England career was his being taken off injured in about the first minute in a world cup game - he should never have gone to that tournament, he knew his fitness was nowhere near good enough, and ultimately he prevented a fit striker from appearing in the WC, the selfish little twat. Robbie Fowler was a total scumbag, but he was the better striker of the two.

It's not his fault he was picked for that world cup though, the manager could easily have picked someone else. I don't really see how he was over rated either, his goal record proved that he was right to be rated highly. If he had stayed fit he would have gone on to be one of the greats i have no doubt about that.

To be fair BB there are not many you do like that's why your my favorite forum member, but to compare him to that cheesey aresed, rat munching, coke snorting little runt is a bit much.....I have a recurring dream that Soxy just walked up to him and kicked ten tons of cr*p out of him on the pitch and instead of the ref carding Soxy he joins he puts the boot in as well and then Zola joins in "just one, just one".. Basil Fawlty style etc..... it's quite vivid

Best of luck to Owen. Never had an issue with him, perfect example of how not to treat a 18 striker though , perfect example of mid career burn out.

Always came across as a intelligent genuine nice guy, completely at odds with most of the other w**kers who play the game these days.

Should have done it years ago, he's become a joke since he came back from Madrid.

 

I feel bad for him. When he first came back from Madrid, he was absolutely brilliant for Newcastle, then he broke his foot, it didn't heal properly and that was pretty much it. 

 

I can't fault the guy for trying his hardest to overcome injuries, though.
