Michael Owen Accuses Newcastle Fans Of Being Hypocrites

8 years ago

His value might have plummeted on the pitch but Michael Owen is still great comedy value off it.

He obviously sees Lionel Messi when he looks in the mirror, or at the very least Ryan Giggs who is still doing the business (on the pitch! …cough cough) despite being six years older than the washed-up nobody that is Michael Owen now.

In the lead up to yesterday’s match, Owen couldn’t help himself and went onto Twitter to say this;

“Just signed autographs for about 40 Newcastle fans outside our hotel. Not one single bad word spoken towards me. I reckon them exact same people will be booing the life out of me should I appear on the pitch today!!!”

To be quite honest I totally forgot during the match that Owen was even in the stadium, never mind on the bench.

As well as having comedy value, Michael’s signature is apparently still worth a few quid, at least to a Liverpool fan in the far east on Ebay anyway.

Yes Michael the autograph hunters weren’t nasty to you…because they wanted your bloody autograph you arrogant little…bench warmer.

Some of them may well have been Newcastle fans and the odd one might have also been inside St.James’ Park for the match but I wouldn’t be taking punters desperate for your signature as any guide to your true popularity.
