God No, Not Michael Owen

1. “In a perfect world I would stay my entire career. I am dreaming about that.” (2 months later)
2. He’s injury-prone (something he has been denying since he was at Liverpool and something Giggsy warned him about years ago)
3. He’ll play for anyone for the money (Newcastle?? Really, Michael?)
4. “The brochure
5. “I believe my ambitions can be fulfilled at Liverpool. I find it a little insulting that, after 12 years’ service, my loyalty is being questioned. I want every supporter to know that I am as committed to Liverpool as any player at the club. I have been the same ever since I first came to Anfield as an 11-year-old.”
6. He ended Ronny Johnsen’s season after sticking his studs in to our defender’s ankle, and was sent off, after already lunging at Peter Schmeichel in a 1-1 draw in the 97/98 season.
7. He’s a whinger
8. He’s a target for Hull.
9. “In an ideal world, and in the long term, I want to help Liverpool become the most successful club in the world again.”
10. This is how happy scoring against us makes him.

Don’t forget the RoM free shirt summer competition!

    One bad performance against Barca -and the club goes into panic mode. As things stand -hope I’m wrong -but we are looking at 3rd place next season. Why did we not go for Silva as a wise player -he’s not Ronaldo but he’s Galactico class -whereas it seems Valencia can just “do a job” as a wide player.

    The only positive is on the financial side. The Glazers have burdened us -but while they stay -that debt has to be paid off -and at least a slice of it will be this year.

    Hope the bastard never plays for us, he has betrayed every club he has ever played for, Capello has seen through him and hopefully fergie will get rid of him by Christmas, we get rid of our 2 best players and end up with this scouse reject, (he must be bad when they didn’t try and get him back)

    @18:46 :

    Veron? Djemba Djemba? Kleberson? Forlan? Just to name a few costly mistakes.

  7. william says:

    If Ruud is willing to have a limited role then pay 1.5 Million and sign him. He is still deadly in the box and would provide size.

  8. chris says:

    well now that he’s in a team with decent service, there’s every chance he could succeed. and if he doesn’t, utd don’t lose much. and plus, there’s going to be another big signing coming so dont worry too much yet.
