Michael Owen Shock – Everybody Thought He’d Retired Years Ago!

8 years ago

The football world was left stunned today when Michael Owen announced that he was retiring, everybody believing he’d retired years ago for to take up feeding horses and sitting on benches. Though not always at the same time.

Yes, I don’t know what was more embarrassing, the second half of Michael Owen’s career, or the astonishing attempts today to gloss over just what a waste of time he has been for the past so many years.

The bits I have seen and heard, have predictably had the Liverpool mafia swamping the media and saying he was an all time great and all the rest.

Funnily enough, I haven’t heard or seen them asking many Newcastle, Manchester United or Stoke people for their angle on the Michael Owen success story.

As has been sad many times, Owen was a real talent for Liverpool and England, scoring a hatful of goals – most of which seemed to be against us!

However, that obvious talent he had has been wasted ever since he arrived at St.James’ Park, somewhere he clearly didn’t really want to be.

He’ll only be the ‘greatest’ waste of money ever seen at Newcastle United.
