Owen panned on social networking site.
Poor old Michael Owen. You’d have thought that 40 goals for England and appearances for some of the world’s biggest clubs would afford a man some slack. Apparently not.
The former Liverpool, Real Madrid, Newcastle and Manchester United striker attempted to start an open question and answer session on twitter. Now, we can think of plenty of things we’d love to ask the 32-year-old striker but unfortunately for Owen, the session descended into a competition over who could abuse him the most.
Below is a selection is some of best “questions” which, to be fair to Owen, he took with very good grace. It’s worth noting that none of the accounts that appear to be fellow professional footballers are real!
Incidentally, CaughtOffside has a simply wonderful twitter account, wich you can follow here: @caughtoffside.
