    Michael Owen brochure has been sent to Premier League clubs for a FREE transfer lol

    I really did lol as I read the article of the desperation and lack of interest in the once prolific striker that is Michael Owen.
    He's apparantly received some interest from abroad but he's eager to remain in the premier league, so a media agency has circulated a brochure about the former England striker in order to cement his departure from Newcastle on a free transfer but there's still yet to be any takers. lol

    What does everyone think about this? lol
    Should this offer be moved to freebies, since he's on a free transfer? lol

    I feel sorry for him, think Man U should have him and thats a bargain for Man U, as all Man U bargains end up being awesome players EVRA, CANTONA, VIDIC, SOLSKJAER, Schmeichel and IRWIN to name a few :thumbsup:

    I think he'll eventually sign for someone but it must be signed on a "pay as you play" contract terms until he can prove his fitness...he's barely played at all since signing for Newcastle for £18m

    It's a shame because I've always liked Michael Owen.

    I'm sure he can still do a job for a lot of clubs when he's fully fit.

    I can't believe Owen and his agents had to stoop to such a level where they had to send out brochures, including to Everton, who is the local rival of his hometown club....times must be getting hard. :roll:

    I did LOL when I read this earlier. Doesn't it smack of desperation?
    TBH I don't think my U9's would even sign him as he will always know the medical staff better than the 1st team coach. Shame, but I think his playing days are behind him now. Even a tin-pot team on Hackney Marshes would be reluctant.
    Horse racing. That's where his future lies now.

    My understanding is that he's going to Everton

    (but I've been wrong before)

    Doesn't it?
    I've never heard of a player begging to be signed on a free transfer to practically any team that's interested.
    I wouldn't be surprised if he ended up remaining at Newcastle until the midseason transfer window when he proves himself in the lower leagues...I think he may actually need that to show his true form because he's a shadow of the player he was only a few years ago as one of the biggest names in football.

    Who says we want him? :giggle:

    He was arguably the biggest flop of Newcastle...breaking the record transfer and costing you LOADS in wages and I'm sure it was a huge signing on fee as well...and now you're going to lose him for free with barely anything to show for it.

    it's a shame he couldn't keep up his fitness, as I believe he really would of supplied the goals to keep you in the premier league.

    He would score goals at any team that creates chances but he can't do it while he's always on sick leave. :whistling:

    I seriously think Owen has to prove himself in the lower leagues for at least a few months in order to move to a big club again and what better place when Newcastles current squad is probably the best in the Championship...providing they keep the majority of their squad.

    I was thinking of the exact same thing when I originally made the comment. :giggle:

    On paper, it's a good mid table premier league team but in reality, it's a gutless team with the worst board in the world, that has destabilised the entire squad, who don't know what's happening...there's no security with an all time moral low.

    I can't see Rafa selling up, especially how stupid Fergie went on about selling Heinze to his bitter rivals, so if the rumours are true, I'm sure Rafa will bring up the previous scenario. :whistling:

    The whole team is modelled around Gerrard and Torres, so if Rafa was to sell either of those players, it would be against his wishes, but you never know in football these days...especially with debt ridden owners having too much control in team affairs.

    I feel sorry for the bloke.

    The bloke is a proven goalscorer and not many english strikers can say that. He has played for one of the biggest clubs in the world at madrid and also liverpool, his england scoring record is phenomenal and he is still only 29.

    The thing is some people like to see people struggle and yes michael owen has struggled with form but he has also struggled with injuries, and when you are constantly injured its difficult to get a good run going. The other thing is he has been playing for a weak team for over 2 years and you are only as good as the players around you. And unfortunately when you are a striker like owen who relies on good service playing at a club like newcastle was only going to make him suffer.

    Im a man utd fan and if we signed him i would delighted.

    He is a lso a very nice bloke and a proper professional...not many of them around now!

    :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup: Well said

    Me too. I like Mike myself and wish him well wherever he ends up. You know wherever he ends up he will probably score loads.

    That's 'cos you're not a real fan.

    Ever heard of Gary Mabbet?

    He had several chances, and if he had of scored one of them it could of been the difference for NUFC. I'll be glad to see the back of him and his 110k a week pay. He played in a poor squad granted but good stikers, Anelka, Torres, Berbatov, Rooney can all create there own chances. Own looked a shadow of his former self, and at present he has the 1st touch of an elephant (or neil ruddock).

    first touch bit :lol

    Be warned...don't listen to it with any minors in the room, as there's a lot of swearing going on with how frustrating Spurs are.

    Apparently Ruud Van horseface is being allowed to leave for less than £2M, much better imo, but a swan-song back at Anfield would be nice, but only for the Carling Cup.

    Parts of his brochure are in the paper today and I have to admit i feel even more sorry for him.
    He is such a good professional and is still relatively young and he can score goals.

    Football is a fickle sport with an even fickle following, fans have their views slate players one minute then the next they think they are brilliant.
    Look at heskey, played for england with owen a few years ago, then was slated as a bit of a useless player, bnow he is back in the england set up and people are saying how much of an impact he makes.

    To me michael owen is still a world class player and I really wish Manchester united would take a gamble on him, to start off i think he would make a good squad player and who knows maybe after a while he will find his feet and start scoring. He will cost nothing so I really dont see why clubs dont take a gambleon him! His wages are huge but im sure if he had the opportunity to move to a premiership club he would be willing to take a cut in his wages.

    I really hope things pick up for him!
