Michael Owen launches attack on NUFC fans – & says this is why we aren’t a ‘big club’

More jaw dropping nonsense from Michael Owen, as he seems to want to challenge Mike Ashley for the title of most hated man in Newcastle.

After moving on from Alan Shearer, he targets our “deluded” fans and recalls the day his relationship changed forever, after going off injured in 2007 away at Watford.

Owen also plays the ‘you’re not a big club’ card, saying we don’t have a successful history and instead just ‘a lot of fans and a big stadium’.

Here’s his frankly unbelievable take on all of the above:

“When I got home, I switched on Match Of The Day to watch the game and I could hear Newcastle fans, my fans, singing ‘what a waste of money!’ as I’m being stretchered off. I can’t deny their actions that day changed things for me. No longer was I even going to attempt to ingratiate myself with the fans.

“Instead, I flipped it in a slightly more resentful way thinking, I don’t need to justify myself to f ****** Newcastle fans”.

“And I have a long memory. As much as there were some good times to follow at St. James’ Park, my relationship with the fans was irreparably impaired that day at Vicarage Road. The love affair, if you could call it that, was almost over…

“Freddy Shepherd came out with the line that he would happily “carry Michael Owen back to Anfield himself”.

“Being a huge fan of the club also, Freddy was only doing what all the fans constantly do at almost every football club: they believe that their club is ten per cent bigger and that their team is ten per cent better than it actually is.

“This kind of blind delusion is especially true of Newcastle United – which, as I reach for the nearest tin hat, is only a big club in the sense that it has a lot of fans and a big stadium.

“They’re historically not successful off the pitch, in fact quite the opposite mostly. And they’ve never really won much on it in recent times”.

Wow. It isn’t about justifying yourself, but maybe a little bit of respect considering how little he had played and how we stood by him?

As for the “I don’t need to justify myself to f****** Newcastle fans” comment. Erm, I think you do when you’re our club captain, record signing and on £120,000 per week, Michael.

Maybe there was a bit of delusion back then, but to be honest, I don’t want to know a football fan who doesn’t get a little bit giddy or cocky when their club signs one of the world’s best strikers from Real Madrid for (what was at the time) astronomical money.

Also, if we’re such a poor unsuccessful club, why did you sign Michael? Oh yeah…I can think of 120,000 reasons a week.

  1. What a silly deluded little fat fellow..
    He didn’t ONLY come for the money… he came because no other f@#$er wanted him.
    No injuries at Madrid apart from the bench splinters in his arse cos he wasn’t anywhere near 2nd or 3rd choice at the club.
    Comes to Newcastle for silly money, earns silly money and thinks he doesnt have a debt to pay or to justify himself to us fans, who by the way payed his 120.000 a week wages. We saved him from mediocrity in Madrid and gave him a chance to become a legend in toon. What does he do….spits it back at us. C#$T!!!!!!
    as for Shearer joining the scousers, yes gerard houlier made an approach while Alan was being rested a little more than he would like. But the bottom line is he didn’t join them he stayed until retirement so if splinter wants to knock anyone for their club loyalty then maybe he should look in the mirror.
    Alec Ferguson’s attempts to sign him also failed and at that time man utd were the power team.
    Even man u fans must be scratching their heads with owen.
    Yes I agree with sir Freddie…..
    A waste of time, effort and most certainly money

  2. No Michael, you were right the first time – Newcastle fans! .. not YOUR fans you deluded pr!ck.

    What ‘love affair’ – you never wanted to come to NUFC – you admit that in this book!!.

    You were told by the RM president that NUFC want you and are prepared to pay big for you (at the time). He went on to say ‘go or stay’ – you said that too – though I suspect you knew you were a benchwarmer for them and what he actually meant was go.
    You asked to go to Lpool, but they had bid as much as NUFC and RM wouldn’t let you go for less – why would they?!.
    But your Lpool, your boyhood club, who you loved and they loved you – the giants of Europe couldn’t or worse wouldn’t match little older NUFC in a bid to bring back their hero – imagine that?!.
    So you were left with a choice – stay put at a club that didn’t want you, or move to a club you didn’t want to go to – how the mighty had fallen!.

    So you sold out, like the little mercenary that you are.

    But as you rightly say – it was our thick head owners racing to YOUR house. They chased you, you were wanted at NUFC – and thousands of fans turned up at NUFC to see you unveiled.

  3. Still cant get my head around why splinter arse would turn on the fans.
    Hes already made it obvious that he didn’t want to play for nufc or man utd and certainly not stoke.
    If he was so good then why did his beloved liverpool not make an attempt at resigning him?????
    COS HE WAS DELUDED . HE WAS SH@TE and no longer an asset.
    All we wanted was owen to play for his wage show what he was about.
    But he has to now resort to petulance and back stabbing to take the focus away from his own short comings…. his career was over when liverpool sold him to Madrid
