  1. One of Booby Clingon’s favourite players of all time!

    Owen makes me wretch – an absolute scumbag and rotter.

  2. It’s easy to over-react to this one. He’s simply stating his preference, and he’s right about us being a poor team back then.

    What it also shows is that he STILL doesn’t get how he carries a huge part of the responsibility for that team being poor. It’s just his psychology, and he’s never hidden it. He seems to consider himself as this little ‘extra’ that occupies the same space as whatever team is paying his bills, but is never really part of it. A hired gun.

    That’s what he is, and his arrangements at Manure make sense for all concerned given that. Leave him to it.

    It’s a waste, though – he could be the hero for a lower team rather than a bit-part player in the biggest, but to be honest – he just doesn’t have what it takes to do that, and I think his experience here proved that to him and everyone else.

    He’ll never get why we hate him, which says it all, really. If he doesn’t see what’s wrong with captaining a huge club to relegation, then leaving without so much as a word of regret or apology…

    Head firmly up arse, as you’ve said.

  3. ..and “ratbag” for that matter.

    Phwoar!! Let’s pop off to the tuck shop and get some of those corking sweeties and have a midnight feast! Tell Smithers and Bunters at break time! It’s going to be just whizzo!

  4. I’m not sure it can be as funny as the real thing. Have you seen the “Michael Owen: Brand Values” page?

    Holy shit, how ridiculous is that?? 😯

  5. For those who can’t be bothered to look, it includes “resilient”, “fit and healthy”, “devoted”, “committed”, “sincere”, “enthusiastic”, and…
    “charismatic”.

    Holy. Fucking. Shit. 😯 😆

  6. Does just look like a cheap training top, wonder how much they want for it, no way would I pay more than about £15 for that! Bet Ashley wants about £45. 😆

    I liked the new home strip though.

  7. One of, if not the biggest c*nt in football. Making him captain was a ridiculous idea to begin with, but he’s really shown how snide he can be after he got what he deserved at SJP, absolute bellend that bloke

  8. re. Owen

    Im amazed they’ve offered him another year. Out of him, Giggs and Scholes I think the wrong one has just retired!

    I think CLF might have been the start of the end for Fergie. 🙂

  9. He did try in some games when he wasn’t injured but…. we shouldn’t have signed him! and shouldn’t have made him captain! I blame the club as much as him.

  10. DJG-Aye, freddy was an absolute muppet to go in for him, and on those wages, ridiculous. Making him captain was a joke. Also re the brochure-page 18 and 26, who the feck does Owen think he is? Shearer? :mrgreen:

  12. “Indeed his period under Kevin Keegan in 2008 was one of his happiest and most productive spells in football and he was within days of signing a contract which would have kept him at St James Park for the rest of his career when keegan left the club abruptly ”

    I suppose Keegan leaving did do us a favour then

  15. Whumpie the last line in that article is as good as any I’ve read in The Daily Mash:

    “Owen is said to be disappointed by Capello’s response, a reaction which has unfortunately torn his left anterior disappointment cartilage”

    Sounds like Joseph’s back on the booze.

    Either that or wacky backy! 😆

  17. TC – Perhaps it’s more cryptic than that? Maybe he’s been spoken to about his Twittering and is annoyed by the limiting of his freedom of though? 😉

  18. Nah toonsy – I reckon he’s just been roond his mate’s hoose in Toxteth deeing buckets in the kitchen sink. 😉

  19. toonsy- perhaps my second favorite article title after the daglish one…

    whumpie at 12. That isn’t really true is it?

    I really can’t believe I used to actually like Owen and think he was the heir apparent…

  20. MDS: Sadly, yes. There is apparently no limit to the quantity or quality of utter batshit that PR people can produce.

    Go to the link on post 13 and look at page 12 of the brochure.

    Oh, and it includes “good looking” too. So is Pippa Middleton’s arse, and at least that made it 100 paces without breaking anything. Better movement too. Not much width, but perfect balance and excellent in support. Made one want to get into the box…

    (Sorry)

  21. That brochure is pure comedy. How deluded and full of himself is that man.

    agreed whumpie- also impressed by Pippa’s…umm… fitness.

  22. toonsy: ‘I’ve corrected his spelling for him, free of charge … ‘

    Pedant. Just think of all that time and energy he puts into updating his twitter account and you pick on something as inconsequential as his spelling! Shame on you, toonsy 😆
