      a great player when fit, a waste of money when not!

      Who is Michael Owen? Michael Owen was born in Chester on 14/12/1979 which makes him 29 years of age, but very nearly 30. Although an Everton fan Owen was snapped up by Liverpool and made it through their academy and youth structures. Owen made his first team debut in May 1997 for Liverpool against Wimbledon at Selhurst Park and crowned it with a winning goal; not bad. He has never looked back and went on to make 216 appearances for Liverpool scoring 118 goals in the process. His touch, raw pace and a knack for goal scoring have also earned Owen many England caps. Owen was found surplus to requirements when new Spanish manager Rafael Benitez took over at Anfield. An £8million transfer to Real Madrid followed where he joined fellow Englishman David Beckham. Owen admits that he enjoyed his time in Spain and it taught him a great deal, however his first team chances were limited and he only managed 13 goals in 35 games. Owens next move came as a surprise to everybody. £16million pounds later and Owen found himself back in his beloved premier league playing for Newcastle United. It seemed that Owen would get what he wanted, a chance to play again in the top league in Europe and first team football for a decent team, however things didn't quite work out as hoped which was a shame for Owen and Newcastle alike. Owen spent most of his time at Newcastle on the physio table which must have felt like his second home by now after the months of torment he had out with hamstring injuries at Liverpool. This hampered his form and chances in the team and he only managed to score 26 goals in 70 appearances for the magpies which resulted in them being relegated from the premier league at the end of the 2008-2009 season. So, where was Owen going to go now? His contract has expired at Newcastle and there were fresh concerns over his physical state because of the amount of matches he had missed whilst at Newcastle. For some reason the team behind Owen published a thirty two page brochure and sent it to all twenty of the premier league clubs for the start of the 2009-2010 season; quite embarrassing for one of England's greatest ever goal scorers! From this interest came from Hull City and Stoke City, but it became clear that they could not afford the wages Owen was demanding and he simply didn't want to play for them. What happened next I'm still trying to get my head around. I woke up one morning and turned on Sky Sports News and saw the Michael Owen had signed a two year deal at Manchester United, what! At the time I couldn't believe it, but I soon realised that it wasn't as daft as it sounded. Ferguson had offered Owen a heavily structured deal which included an average wage package, but relied heavily on Owens minutes on the pitch and performance. Ferguson had laid the gauntlet down and Owen had accepted the challenge. What has Michael Owen done at Manchester United so far? It's true that since joining United Owen has been used mainly as a super sub, but this won't bother him so long as he keeps being given the opportunity and he's scoring goals. In 16 appearances he has scored 4 goals, not bad considering he has been used primarily as a substitute. He doesn't seem to have lost his scoring knack either, hitting the 96th minute winning goal in the Manchester Derby at Old Trafford and the winner in the Carling Cup against Barnsley at Oakwell. His physical condition has been ok too, only really being injured once but it didn't result in a lengthy spell on the sidelines. Was the signing of Michael Owen managerial genius by Sir Alex Ferguson? In my opinion yes it was. Ferguson had nothing to lose, he offered Owen a contract which has really motivated him and could benefit both parties. Owen is fighting for a place in England's world cup squad and in return United get a genuine goal scorer. If he can stay fit he will undoubtedly end the season with a bag full of goals as his finishing ability is unquestionable, 40 goals in 89 appearances for England says so!

        great striker if he can stay fit

        Michael Owen is one of the most recognised strikers in the English game but recently he has been confined more to the treatment table than the football pitch. This has not though deterred one of the best managers to ever manage in the top tier of English football to take a gamble on him and offer him a contract at current premier league champions, Manchester United. Alot of people will wonder why he has done this especially as he has just left Newcastle United as they were relegated and had spent most of his time at the club on the sidelines injured. After the world cup in 2006 he was out for 18 months for which the FA were ordered to pay a £10m compensation award to Newcastle. The reason why he has been purchased by Alex Ferguson is because when fit he is still a top striker and knows how to put the ball in the back of the net. He has a close to 1:2 games to goals ratio throughout the clubs he has played at and at international level. Owen began his career at Liverpool in 1996. He scored on his debut in May 1997. In his first full season in the Premier League he finished as joint top scorer. He really burst onto the scene at the World cup at France 1998 at 18 years old and scored a fantastic goal where he showed the whole world his dribbling ability,blistering pace and great finishing. That year he was awarded the PFA young player of the year award and also The BBC sports personality of the year award. He won hist first major club honours in 2001 when Liverpool won a cup treble of the UEFA Cup, FA Cup and Football League Cup. He went on to win the most prestigious prize for an individual in world football in 2001 which was the ballon'd'or which announced him as the best footballer in the world that year.He went on to score 118 goals in 216 appearances in the English Premier League for Liverpool. Owen moved to Real Madrid for £8 million in mid-2004 but was mainly used as a substitute. Despite this, he scored 13 goals in La Liga and had the season's highest ratio of goals scored to number of minutes played. He returned to England the following season, joining Newcastle United for £16 million. He had a good start to the 2005-06 season but injuries kept him out for most of the next 18 months. After his return he became team captain and was the team's top scorer for the 2007-08 season. Newcastle were relegated the following season as Owen again was troubled by injuries. His contract was not renewed by Newcastle and Manchester United have just snapped him up. For England Owen has 40 goals in 89 appearances. After not getting a new contract at Newcastle ,Owen's management team produced a 32-page magazine advertising their client's qualities - aspirational, cool, devoted and sincere to name but four - and delivered a reminder of why he was once one of football's superstars. Hull and Stoke City were the ones to first show an interest in signing the player. Alex Ferguson probably did not need the brochure to decide whether to offer him the contract. He knows getting Owen is a gamble but he also knows what he can do when he is fit which is score plenty of goals. United's substantial budget, helped by £80m from Real Madrid for Cristiano Ronaldo, lets Ferguson shop at the top end of the market - but also gives him the opportunity to take the odd chance. Owen is one of those he has taken a chance on as other targets seem to want to go elsewhere. Also financially it is a good move as Owen will not command a tranfer free as his contract had expired at Newcastle. Whether he is a success at Manchester United remains to be seen but there is no doubting his talent and he cannot be written off. He will also get to play alongside Wayne Rooney which may just help the England team not just Manchester United. He is still under 30 years old and this will be a chance for him to prove himself once again at the top level.I am not a Manchester United fan but am an England fan so ideally would be good if Owen and Rooney do well but United still end up with nothing this season!:P

          Shame about the injuries cause e could have been good for Newcastle

          At the moment Michael Owen is a striker at Newcastle United. Although he has not been doing much striking lately as he is normally injured. He was born in Chester on the 14th December 1979. He first signed for Liverpool in 1990 and he was considered to be one of the best young players in the country. He was selected to play for the FA Youth Cup in Liverpool when he was 16 years old. He signed a professional contract with liverpool on his 17th birthday. In his first football season he scored a total of 18 goals in 36 games which earned him the PFA Young Player Of The Year Award and also a place in the England squad for the 1998 world cup final in France. In the 1998-99 season he scored 18 goals and received the golden boot for the second year running. The following season was when Michael picked up a hamstring injury. He scored 11 goals in 27 games. After this he headed for the Euro 2000 with mixed emotions. 2000-01 was when he scored 19 goals in 19 league games. 2002-2003 he scored 28 goals which included his 100th goal for the club. In 2004 Michael was sold to Real Madrid for £8 million. He ended the season there with only 13 goals. Newcastle United bought him for 17 million where he wore the number 10 shirt. In 2005 he married Louise Bonsall, they have a daughter called Gemma Rose and a son called James Michael.

            A fox in the box whose gone a bit lame

            Michael Owen (born December 14, 1979, in Chester, Cheshire) is an English Striker who burst onto the scene and made a name for himself on the world stage, he has played for Liverpool, Real Madrid and Newcastle, but he is really most well known for his performances for England in which he has been prolific. Owen's father was a professional footballer and from an early age Owen was a competitive sportsman in a number of fields, he joined Liverpool and developed through their youth team watching his hero Robbie Fowler scoring goals for fun in the main team. Owen was sent to the FA Centre of Excellence in Lilleshall to develop further and returned to Liverpool's youth team becoming a prolific goalscorer, he scored a hat-trick in the 1996 FA Youth cup final against Manchester United. Owens star rose at such a rate that he got opportunities for the main team. He made his debut for Liverpool against Wimbledon in May 1997, coming on as a substitute and scoring a goal which immediately marked him out as a predator, a striker who really knew where the goal was. In the 1997-98 season Owen caught a lucky break with Fowler injured he took over his mantle and Owen ended that season as a joint top scorer in the Premier League with Blackburn Rovers' Chris Sutton and Coventry City's Dion Dublin, scoring eighteen goals, and was voted the PFA Young Player of the Year by fellow professionals. He was a player gaining big plaudits at a very young age and was being watched by the England Management also. The following season Owen increased his annual tally to 23 goals in 40 games, but Liverpool failed to win anything. The following season Owen was hampered by injuries but Liverpool won the League Cup, FA Cup and UEFA Cup, with Owen scoring two goals in the last few minutes against Arsenal in the FA Cup final. What followed was a further injury hit season and while Owen was the top goalscorer every year he played at the club, his last season was a real damp squib. In an unexpected development, Owen signed for Real Madrid in 2004 for £8m a real bargain in todays environment, Madridista's were unconvinced by the signing as Owen is more an old style goalscorer than all round footballer like Raul or Henry, Owen was given the number 11 shirt. He failed to adapt well to Spain with his family. Owen left the following season but scored 18 goals in 41 games with only 15 of those being as a starting player. In a huge fanfare Newcastle announced the £16m signing of Owen in 2005, he has played there ever since, although he has been injured for the vast majority of this time, United have not seen the best of him and his incredible wages have meant he has been branded a failed signing. England Owen has 40 goals in 89 appearances for England, he is not far from being the top scorer of all time but with his current injuries and form it is difficult for Cappello to pick him. When first picked in 2007 against Morroco he scored and continued this in the 1998 World cup in France where his incredible goal against Argentina brought him worldwide acclaim. Owen has been a potent finisher for England in some great teams and ordinary ones, will he get the opportunity to increase his international tally? He needs to perform for his club to have any opportunity. Owen has been a model professional although he is known to be a gambler, he is solid, professional and at times can appear incredibly dull. As a footballer he has all the technical skills, pace and a great first touch, but his primary asset is his finishing, he has a natural skill of putting the ball in the net. Good luck Michael in your next comeback!

              completely, totally, unbelievably OVERRATED !!! plays for a mediocre club whereas our top competition all have strikers playing for big clubs and why ?? because those strikers are good! scored adimtadely an amazing goal against Argentina in a game we finally lost 10 years ago !!! isn´t the player he was-he still has some pace but not as explosive as it once was. is not technically gifted at all and most of the time the ball gets stuck under his feet. small but for some reason good in the air when the ball is at the right height and he´s against the right defender !All in all- we are going to continue to be the same England-not taking chances with no real threat up front and it´s such a shame that nobody (including commentators and press) sees him for what he is - a player who has peaked.

              small but good

              What can one say about michael owen? this small pacey striker burst into international recognition with the stunning goal against argentina. First establishing himself with liverpool owen scored many a goal during his time there. he was then sold, for what i consider a misely £7 million for a player of his capability, to Real Madrid. during what turned out to be his only season there he had a not amazing experience scoring 13 in 20 apps. having played second fiddle to raul and ronaldo for a while the writing was on the wall for owen when madrid signed 2 new strikers. Cue intense speculation which ended in newcastle paying £17 million for the striker. a total of 10 apps led to 7 goals before owen broke his metatarsal on new years day. months later he has still to return to full match fitness during englands world cup campaign.

                Michael Owen. The best striker in the world? Maybe, probably? Owen has come from leaps and bounds since the start of his proffessional career 5 years ago. As a kid he broke all existing records in the scoring department. A wonderful individual effort against Scotland made him the biggest potential in England. Before Liverpool, Owen was turned down by several clubs such as Aston Villa because he was too small. What a mistake they made. Owen scored on his debut for Liverpool and hasnt looked back since. A great 98 World Cup for England, and he was on top of the world. Scoring hat-tricks in the bundle. Owen was quick and had the ability to dribble through defences. Untill he tore his hamstring that is. Owen has lost some of his pace, and has bulked up a bit. But one thing he has definitly gained. The ability to convert chances better. He matured, and proved himself twice, one in the FA CUP final 2001, and a sensational hat-trick vs Germany in Munich. Owen is a natural finisher and is one of the best players in the world. European footballer of the year followed. Other strikers who are up there with Owen: Ronaldo Vieri Henry Trezeguet Raul maybe: Van Nistelrooy Hasselbaink Shevchenko Saviola

                  Disadvantages

                  On the 14th December 1979 a star in the making was born in Chester, England, that star being a certain Michael James Owen, the son of ex-Evertonian Terry Owen. From a very early age, it was blatantly obvious that Owen was going to make the grade as a professional footballer and he was duly snapped up by Liverpool Football Club on Schoolboy forms. Straight away, Owen went about breaking virtually every goal-scoring record going and made his breakthrough whilst starring in Liverpool's 1996 FA Youth Cup winners side. The next season he made his first team debut in a match against Wimbledon and surprise, surprise he scored his first league goal, at the tender age of 17. From that day, both he (Owen) and Liverpool have never looked back. He became England's youngest representative of the 20th century and also became England's youngest ever goal-scorer in a match against Turkey that same year. After continuing his prolific goal-scoring fetes for both club and country, Owen was duly included in Glen Hoddles 1998 World Cup squad. This tournament was the making of his world-renowned superstar status, as the world sat up and noticed what a goal scoring talent Owen is, most notably for his superb goal he scored against Argentina. He later that year, was named the BBC Sport Personality of the year and is actually the current European Footballer of the year, an award that usually eludes England?s finest players, perhaps showing the admiration the rest of the world has for Owen. With his searing pace (he can actually run 100 metres in around 10.8 seconds), his cool and deadly finishing and his utter professionalism, Owen is destined to be not only one of Liverpool?s greatest goal-scorers, but there is no doubt Owen will go on to break England?s goal-scoring record of 49 goals (currently jointly held by Bobby Charlton and Gary Lineker). Owen already has close on 130 first team goals for club and country and with at least 10 years left in his career, the sky?s the limit, lets just hope the injuries don?t hinder his career. Owen is the ultimate ?Big game? player; come on, name me another player that has scored goals against the likes of Brazil, Argentina, France, Germany to name just a few and most of the big name club teams around Europe have been victims of his goal-scoring talents, and all this at the tender age of just 22. He scores vital goals for fun in all the important matches, I mean ask the Arsenal or United fans for proof of this, ask the Germans, not forgetting ?THAT? goal against the Argies in the last World Cup at the tender age of 18. He is also the ideal role model for our children, with his superbly laid-back temperament and squeaky-clean lifestyle, nothing fazes this guy. There are no heirs and graces with Owen, no pop-star girlfriends; actually Owen, despite all his fame is still unbelievably with his childhood sweetheart Louise Bonsall. No being seen around film premieres in London and no silly photos of himself posing in woman's magazines, he is just the ultimate professional. Yet despite all of this, the guy still gets a huge amount of uncalled for criticism by the British public, by the gutter press and several other so-called experts. What is it with this country? Why do we constantly criticise our sporting superstars? I mean over the past four or five years (yes unbelievably, Owen has only been on the scene for FIVE years) we've had claims that he is injury prone, he's a diver, he has no left foot, he doesn't do enough in a game, etc, etc. The lad has been written off more times than any other sportsperson around. I could go on for years quoting some of the ridiculous claims I have read about Owen, but I'll just give you my answers to the few I've mentioned. Is he injury-prone? Well, if you look at the games this lad has packed into his relatively short career, I don't think I r eally need to answer that, do I? Yes Owen has had quite a few problems with hamstring injuries, but come on, the lads body was still growing when he burst (literally) onto the scene and considering Michael relies on his explosive pace to scare the hell out of opposing defences, he's bound to suffer. Luckily for both Liverpool and England, the injuries seem to be less frequent of late, he still gets the odd niggle here and there, but doesn't every player? Yet Owens injuries seem to be highlighted more than most. Is Owen a diver? Over the years, it has been claimed that Owen is a diver and that he goes down with the slightest of touches. Yet if you'd seen Owen play as many times that I've seen him, you'd have witnessed the amount of times he actually stays on his feet when most would be diving. What you've got to realise about Owen is, not only is he as fast as lightening, he is also a pretty small guy and he is as direct as they come, once the ball is at his feet, he has one thought only, get into the area where he?ll cause problems. Opposing defenders are scared witless by his pace and usually dive in with lunging tackles, resulting in a penalty. What you'll NEVER see Owen do is, roll around play-acting or feigning injuries, you'll never see him brandishing imaginary yellow cards asking the referee to book the player that's just fouled him and you'll NEVER see him making "Blatant" dives. Is Owen one-footed? Another pathetic claim over the years has been Owens apparent lack of a left foot. It is claimed that he relies on his right foot too often, really? Hmm, I bet I could find you several dozen goals scored by Owen with his left foot. Not only this, for his lack of height, Owen also scores his fair share of headed goals, the most notable being his goal against United last year, where he rose above United's two centre-backs and Barthez to brilliantly head home. Even aft er just one match in the current World Cup, we had idiots actually asking for Owen to be axed from the team, just because he had a quiet game against Sweden, I mean who NEVER had a poor game against Sweden? Forget the hype surrounding David Beckham, Owen is without doubt England's main weapon, he's the player every team worries about, with his searing pace and thriving on the pressure of big games, he's the player that every manager in this current World Cup respects and would love in their team and if we are going to progress in this World Cup, Owen will be the player who has the most influence on England's destiny in this tournament.

                    Michael Owen is the model professional. He's one of the best footballers in the world, so naturally one of England's finest, and has now been named captain, facing Paraguay as we speak. His still in his early 20's and already has scored some incredibly important goals in his career - remember that one against Argentina in '98...? For Liverpool, Owen is instrumental. A truly masterful striker, he's got blistering pace and superb weaving skill to trick defenders, and he really does come across as a decent person. Unlike another England great, Owen doesn't have the press on his back 24/7, as much respect as I have for David Beckham, I'd say Michael Owen is a far more down to earth kind of guy. Obviously with his millions to go with it. This season has been fantastic for Liverpool, they've maintained a top 3 position for a while now and seem like 2nd favourites for the Premiership title thanks to Owen's goals as well as the rest of the team. Arsenal are favourites, but it's not over yet and Liverpool could snatch it, the United v Arsenal game could decide all at the end of the season. Liverpool's season last year was a triumph all round. Worthington Cup winners, Uefa Cup winners (which got them into the Champions League this season, sadly they've been knocked out, but have done very well), and of course the FA Cup in which Owen single footedly changed the match around, slotting 2 past Seaman in the latter stages of the game and made it a treble cup season for Liverpool - truly brilliant player. He's skilful, but doesn't mess about with the ball, keeps it simple and scores some spectacular goals, though the majority are well taken low shots, all important. A tad boring when interviewed, never any controversy surrounding this man, good clean player, lets just see how good a captain he can be for England. 5 Stars!

                      Yesterday I learned Owen will receive this prize the 18th of December. So 50 journalists has chosen him. To tell the truth, I was really surprised to know Owen has won it because I didn't know he was a serious contender (the names of Kahn, Raul or even Beckham were more used). Yeah, Liverpool has a great season last year. Owen has even scored 4 goals against Kahn. He's a great finisher, he's so quick and more over he seems so nice (I don't know him, that's why I just write "seems"). Well, the more I think about it, the more I realize he's the one who deserves it this year. I have been to a French site and most of the half of the readers that have sent a comment don't believe this. But I can say that most of them gave wrong reasons like: Why not Zidane because he is the biggest transfer? So Owen will have a nice late birthday gift, tribute of his talents.

                        Disadvantages

                        Thought I make catch your attention with the title. Don't worry, I don't think this of Owen. Michael Owen is one of the best strikers in the world. If you wanted to watch a player in form, then Michael Owen would be that person. He just can’t seem to stop scoring at the moment, whether he is playing for Liverpool or England. He has scored about 7 goals already this season for Liverpool, and he scored that marvellous hat trick against Germany on Saturday. As a Liverpool player, Owen has played about 175 times, scoring roughly 96 goals in the process. This is an amazing number of goals to score in that many games and I am 100% that he will score a lot more in the future. In his first season, in the premiership, for Liverpool, he scored 21 goals. The following season saw him score 23, 2 better than the previous season. Like I have said, he has already scored 7 goals this season and we are only 3 premiership games into the new season. I think Owen could break the 30-goal barrier this season quite easily. As an England player, Michael Owen has made 32 caps and scored 14 goals. 3 of these goals came against Germany a few moths ago when England stuffed their opposition 5-1. This was a game that England needed to win to make them have a better chance of winning their group and qualifying automatically for the World Cup 2002 Finals, at the time. Owen scored his first hat trick of England and it could not have come against a better team. England had never beaten Germany, in Germany, until Saturday and England proved that they are capable of winning the World Cup. I feel that if Owen keeps playing like he is at the moment, he will keep scoring for his country and could end up easily as England’s best ever goal scorer. Since then, England have qualified for the World Cup Finals as they drew against Greece and Germany could only draw against Finland, although Germany are also through having beaten Ukraine in the Play-Offs. Michael Owen is still a young player, but he is a player that every team would want in their side, especially now seeing as he can’t stop scoring. Overall, Owen is simply a fantastic player and a joy to watch.

                        Disadvantages

                        Michael Owen is a footballer but he is an unfair footballer seeing as he has a right and left foot which enables him to score with both of these feet. He plays for Liverpool who play at Anfield and are called Liverpool FC He has played some games for England FC but failed to impress and Kevin Keggan has since dropped him. He has never been gutted coz of an injury which is good for him and ManchesterUnited the club he plays for. It is rumored that he is soon to be sold to Torquay United for 250,000 thats if they can meet his wage demands of £500 per month. Thanks for reading Vodka

I just hope that he loses his touch when Liverpool play Tottenham (Like that will happen). Overall, Owen is simply a fantastic player and a joy to watch.
