    I for one do not hate him, but what I do question is the need for a player whose career has been blighted by injury in recent years. How many full games or indeed sub appearances did he turn in last season or the season before that? Throw in the silly wage demands and the doubt of whether his heart would really be in it.

    That’s enough for me to say thanks, but no thanks let’s go for younger hungrier options
    He was on 40k a week at Man U. Doubt he'll demand that anywhere else. Would be a great upgrade from Connolly!
    Surely it will be a matter of market forces. If we offered him say 15k a week and no other team bettered it, his choice is 15k a week or retire. He can't demand 20 30 40k if no one is prepared to pay it.
    i thought owen was on a pay per play contract at united ........ get him on one of those and what's to lose ?
    agreed slugger pay per play and as seedhouse has said teams of old we always had some experienced players.
    EXPERIENCE you can't buy it, you can't steal it, you can't borrow it, you learn it and owen certainly has learnt it"
