owen is possibly the dullest person to hit our TV screens. Not just from a dull list of football pundits, but TV in general

When you consider this would include Kevin Kilbane and Mathew Upson that is quite something

Surely he has to be a bit controversial otherwise his book would be absolute torture

Ouch.

Met him a couple of dozen times and see him about regularly as he lives about 2 minutes away, can honestly say he’s one of the nicest people you could meet. Speak as you find and all that.

Love the fact he calls Shearer out on Twitter

But he's a free agent, so we'll probably sign him following Chica's departure. Oh, those days are behind us (hopefully).

After reading what he said about the Toon, I had a look on a couple of their forums.
Let's say they weren't his biggest fans before those comments and they definitely ain't now.

It's very interesting what he has to say about Kieron Dyer as well.
It sounds like Kieron Dyer is one of those special people who do good things, but don't like to make a fuss about it. Well done Kieron :thup:

Still love the fact that he boasted about only ever having watched 8 films.

And this tweet: https://twitter.com/themichaelowen/stat ... 9967816707

:shock:

He's always essentially been Alan Partridge if Alan Partridge had been trapped in the body of a prodigiously pacy and talented teenage footballer. Which, ironically given his hatred of films, would have made for a pretty decent 80s body swap comedy.

That goal he scored against the Argies...one of those 'where were you' moments, for me, even if I was at home with mates, loads of beer etc.

Such a brilliant goal.

When he played you could see that he hot no enjoyment from the game, it was just a job to him.
In this aspect, he was the forerunner to loads of footballers who we now accept as not loving/liking the game and just using it as a job in the PL.
Funny how people accept this with foreign players but are shocked/disgusted when they see it in a British player.

I’ll always remember him for scoring past a 14 year old ginger lad and celebrating like he’d won the World Cup. Strange little man he is.
