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.

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.

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 Ģ10m compensation ... Read the complete review

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 !!! isnīt 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 heīs 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 itīs such a shame that nobody (including commentators and press) sees him for what he is - a player who has peaked.
