Funny piece about Michael Owen’s languishing career.
It’s not often you can condone a killing spree, but had Michael Owen taken an AK 47 to the streets of Newcastle last night, you might just have shrugged your shoulders and let the man get the rage out of his system.
To be clear: it would have nothing to do with the Magpies facing the humiliating relegation that they did. Micky O, in all his wisdom, saw that coming – that’s why he declined to renew his contract earlier in the season and will of course be on his way this summer.
The rage only kicked in when the England side was announced to the nation and Gary Neville, with 29 season appearances to Owen’s 31, somehow hobbled his way into the England squad.
All season, Owen has been told, and with some justification, that he’s not been fit or regular enough to make the grade, even if three England strikers get injured in one game and Rooney’s left running with the ball in circles like the kid at school you always thought was a little off. (Goal.com)

I have to say I was very surprised when i read that Gary Neville had made it back into the England set-up and it’s a bizarre call up if you think about it, especially when you take into account these are World Cup Qualifiers and no meaningless friendlies. As good as the Denim loving Man United man once was he has been exposed time and again when he has been selected this term and is rightfully not considered first choice by Sir Alex.
