This is not about Sam Allardyce, I’m talking about the England’s Michael Owen. He is now still working on to get the full recovery from his latest injury while playing for an “important” match for England under Steve mcClaren against Austria, just five days before the “less important” and “easy to win” Croatian match.
At least they have flying to Austria and play against one of the Euro 2008 hosts, so they can take it as part of their participation on the next summer European Football festival.
About Michael Owen, I have trying to look for any news about his reaction for our last weekend loss against Liverpool, strange it is, I can’t find any. But, he (Owen) have a bullshit about making a comment against the Croatian team. His statement is totally out of context.
“I don’t think any of the Croatian team would get into our team,” he said. “Doesn’t that tell you it’s not about ability or technique but in the mind?”
Well, the England team were again drawn in the same group as Croatia, along with Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Andorra and Belarus, for the 2010 World Cup qualifiers.
In response to what Owen said about his team, Bilic said: “There’s a bit of arrogance when we see words like ‘No player from the Croatia team would play for England’ – that is simply not true.”
Well, I think Owen should have not making that such statement for a team who has beat the England team home and away on their last Euro campaigns. He should have think about how to avoid another injury and give his best for Newcastle United.
In fact, if someone come with an offer to take him out from Tyneside, I don’t think either Sam Allardyce or Chris Mort will hold him at the club. So, if the new Wigan boss Steve Bruce keen to proposed any transfer for him in January, we will let him go.
The Journal is reporting Wigan new boss have prepare to make a bid for Owen in January and will offering Newcastle United a £16m for the England striker. I would say you should take it Sam and buy more of ‘quality’ in January.
