    Owen Money

    I suppose one way of looking at the Micheal Owen move is, if brains were money SAF would be broke. Probably why he went for MO in the bargain basement perhaps.

    • I think Owen will prove his worth as well.

      It's a gamble for Man U but well worth the risk as the rewards could be good!!! (For club and country)

    • I wonder if Fergie after all his success is beginning to think he is untouchable.

      So far Utd don't have a single midfielder likely to approach double figures. Giggs and Scholes are washed up. Nani, Valencia and Anderson have no history of goal scoring. The established players like Fletcher, Carrick, Park never had goals in them.

      So all the pressure is on the strikers. Rooney is the best of them. Owen is in terminal decline, Berba is also well passed his best, and Macheda and co talented but kids.

      If Utd don't get goals from midfield like they have always had, the EPL is wide open.

      Nasri, Walcott, AA, Rosicky, Fab, Wilshere, are all a midfield threat to opponents goals from midfield. Taking the pressure of Van Persie, Bendtner, Vela, Eduardo and Ade all double figure strikers.

        christ i could pick holes in this all day long, the 1st 6 named scored how many between them ????????????
        and the 2nd 5 only rvp and ade got double figures and ade wants to play for a side that wins things.

        but the most damning, your defence was crap, you signed a world class belgian, rotf, your 1 dimensional and if you dont sign some quality your in danger of dropping out the elite 4, all the players you named tho do have something in common, they all got no medals again, for the 4th year running, not even a cup final in them, small club, small talk, small chances.

      • I'll pay that one Andy P, and while your about it take a five for it and go to the top of the class. Nails are there to be hit, sometimes in coffins, and metaphorically in Manchester Uniteds. I wonder if we will hear back on that, from that king of " I'll spin it anyway I like as long as its in my favour" Odour Causes Chaos?

    • If he hits a good run fitness wise and Ferguson's obviously hoping for that, Owen will deliver, and every true football fan knows he will. Up here the Magpies was a disaster for him on every front---apart from bagging 30 out of 65 starts. Similar stats at Real.
      Fergies moved in where others failed to venture---if it comes off, well good for both of them.

      • And its a big 'IF' Alan. It's not Man Utd. or Ferguson I would be sad for, it's MO himself. SAF would just shrug his shoulders, chew harder on his gum and dismiss it as just a bit of bad business and move on leaving MO with literally no where to go. But having said that the two of them would probably have drink together over it at Chester race course down the road, and spend the clubs money on another horse. My personal opinion is that both you and John are being just a little naive here, if you will excuse me for saying so.

    • OK, I'm no fan of SAF or Utd, but even I can see the sense in Owens move.
