Owen - Small Striker who needs a small chance to score
Member Name: JEStevens
Disadvantages: Height, lack of sharpness
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.
Summary: small but good
