Unemployed Michael Owen Open To Offers

Ex Newcastle United striker, Michael Owen is open to offers following the barcodes relegation and his expired £120,000 a week contract.

Tabloids suggest the ex-England centre forward may have to settle for a Championship or League One side next season as no Premier League club in their right mind would take on a bloke who has lost his pace and who spends the majority of the season on the treatment table.

Only a few years ago, Owen (29) was the sensation of English football, but sadly he's had his moment of glory and will no doubt have to settle, as many great footballers have had to endure in the past and play in England's lower tier.

Of course, Michael could always apply to join Manchester City's youth academy as an advisor. I am sure his wealth of experience would be greatly appreciated, or failing that, he could always join Aston Villa's (NOTW link) squad for next seasons relegation campaign.

Ouch! Will our Villa fans not like that! Own is something of a Super Crock now. I reckon he'll pitch up at Brum.

It's a shame but Owen has had eaten the cheesecake and is left with the biscuits. Like Johnny Baguette I can see one of the promoted sides going for him because of his tremendous Premiership experience. But to expect more than half a season from him is asking a lot. Maybe Hull or Stoke could use him too.

lol, where did you finish this year?? where did villa finish?? jumping the gun a little i think. big names didnt do to much for you last year did it. ever heard the phrase " there is no I in team" ?? and there is a hell of alot of "I" men in your squad. Anyway good luck to you this year and good luck trying to contain a room of egotistical money grabbers. All villa did was get a rediculous offer for a player who didnt want to be there anymore. we will replace him insquad or out of the squad and dont expect him to be the same gareth barry anymore after all he has now done what he wanted to do, he has champions league football. oops i mean he has alot of money now.

ohh get you benny,and to think they say we are bitter!! by the way just so you know,the spine of your team has been ripped out laursen/barry,and as we all know good teams have a spine to them, even if old sourpuss oneill replaced them it would still take time to come together.Interestingly how did Villa do in the uefa cup oh thats right you 'surrendered'your place didnt you,to concentrate on hardly winning a game for the second half of your season,WELL DONE YOU!!! and how much higher than us do you think your going to finish with heskey and reo coker?or owen if you get him? oh yeah aston vIlla your 'team' has an I in it,priceless but then i guess thats the state of education in brum(a place i had the misfortune to spend part of my life living in)for you.And on a final note i bet Gareth Barry gets champions league football before villa do...and thats a fact!And thats why your all soooo upset hes gone!!

hey, all im saying is as employees in any walk of life you are a lot more likely to take it a little easier when you have already made your money. football players play football as a job not as a passion, its hard for us fans to realise that but its usually the truth. i have no problem with barry leaving he served us well over the years he was here. i just have to question his motives. perhaps your probably right man city may well get champions league football before us but i have a feeling if its in a couple of years barry may well be on the bench by then watching all the other "superstars" you have signed
