Of course I not forgetting about he's super-boy days of '98. My problem with Owen is that he's not a work-horse, he doesn't always give 100%, unless he has to. Example - his last 2 seasons before moving to Real, he notched up many average performances, and never really gave the effort or input into the side as he had done in previous seasons. On the other hand, when he played for England, always 100% and the same for Real when fighting for a permanent place on the 1st XI. Basically what I'm trying to say is that Owen only works hard when its important to him, and will progress him further. I could therefore see him transferring to a big English club (minus Chelsea as he will constantly have to be on top form to maintain a first XI position) and playing hard for the first season, and then not putting the effort in, in seasons after that... and I personallyu not thrilled about a player like that joining our side, as we already have Reyes!!

*This post will hail a torrent of abuse*
Serious question, how many times did you watch Owen for Liverpool for 90mins from 1998-2004?

If they do I will bash 'em for you!!

Have to agreethough. Owen isn't all that anymore and you are right only puts in effort when it is needed. A bit like Dippy Drogba.

International games, Ford Super Sunday, MOTD and Premiership, I've watched him quite a bit, otherwise I'd have no room to comment

what a joke lost 5-0, our defensive communication was crap, Richard Wright makes 2 mistakes to let in 2 goals. Alex scored a superb free kick and our defence for the set piece was crap. Attacking we were crap too, couldn't keep the ball, lost out easily when pressed while passing was pedestrian. From this i can see we definately need a new left back, left winger cos mcfadden is crap, holding midfielder cos we lost the ball easily unlike Fenerbahce who had players like Appiah holding possession well and a striker because Beattie can't play up front on his own.

Woooooo! :cool:
Good job it's only a friendly. However, our weaknesses have been made very clear once again. Wright = Pathetic, Pistone = Pathetic, McFadden = Pathetic, Beattie (when playing on his own) = Pathetic

At the end of the day, he's a proven goalscorer and an england regular. Whatever has been previously said about Owen is utter *******s. Before leaving Liverpool, whilst becoming disillusioned with the Houllier setup, he was regularly scoring 20+ goals a season as well as performing both in europe and internationally. The past season at Real, he's been sitting on the bench waiting his turn. I think you don't realise how the Bernabeu have their favourites in Ronaldo and Raul. Real Madrid is a showcase, not a football club - hence their acquisition of the 'Galacticos', yet inability to monopolise the honours. In spite of his prolonged absence from the starting line up, Owen was always keen to dismiss rumours and speculation concerning him, kept his match fitness up, and made impressive impacts when starting as a substitute.

Owen's game isn't about sitting in the hole and creating. Owen's job is, and always has been, standing on the shoulder of the last defender, waiting for the killer cross/pass. His scoring instinct is unrivalled by anyone in the premiership today - even if his a few yards slower than in '98. I can put my hand up and say that any decent (aka self-sufficient) club should want him on their side. Fortunately or unfortunately, his services may no longer be required at Liverpool, and I hope for both our and his sakes that he does not return to the Premiership in the colours of a rival team.

5-0 is fairly pathetic. How ironic that you get slaughtered in the same stadium we won the European Cup. Ah well, nothing like a friendly to boost confidence ahead of an important Champions' League tie. If you play like you have been doing recently against Villarreal, although you'll undoubtedly change your atrocious lineup, top-flight european football will remain a distant dream.
