Jake Humphrey left Michael Owen needing some burn gel yesterday with an absolutely brilliant reply to a tweet from the injury prone striker turned clueless pundit.
The pair were working together last night as BT Sport covered Thursday’s Europa League ties, but that didn’t stop Humphrey making fun of his dismal spell at St James’ Park.
Here’s what he had to say when Owen had a pop at the presenter for ‘p***ing around’ at work:
He’s now deleted it (Owen probably made him!), but it’s yet another moment from Humphrey that will endear him to Newcastle fans, as he seems to be one of the only pundits who gets it, especially on Talksport.
He stood up to Rio Ferdinand last season during the former Manchester United captain’s frankly embarrassing defence of Mike Ashley and seems to understand his abhorrent ownership.
