I have it under very good authoritah that he is coming back to Anfield.
Another spectacular pr disaster for Souness then.
Newcastle are still very much in the running. If we can agree something with Madrid we're his only choice though. supposedly he would only go to Newcastle on loan as a very last resort.
Well if Real's asking price is anything to go by then I doubt Newcastle have â‚¬25 million for one player despite him being worth every cent and then some. Seems like Liverpool would be willing to pay anything between â‚¬18 and â‚¬20 million.
With it looking increasingly difficult to get Owen I'm surprised Souness hasn't put in an offer for Baros, he'd definitely be a good signing for us because in Shearer he'd have the ideal partner, just like Koller is for him with the Czechs.
I believe we're putting the Baros money up front with more payments over the length of his potential contract.
Would be happy to see owen back with Pool, even as a Spurs fan it's sad to see him warming the bench at Madrid, a player of his class needs to be sarting games.
We're in talks, I'm sure we can thrash something out.
Come home, Michael.
Rafa shouldn't have sold him in the first place, what the hell is wrong with him, selling Owen then goes and buys Crouch, who despite beoing a different player to Owen, isn't nearly as good.
With the reports that Ferguson 'is not in the race to sign him', I can see Owen becoming an Old Trafford regular after the Christmas transfer window.
Remember when United 'were not interested' in Rooney?
It's tough to question a man who's led his team to the European Cup but you would wonder why he's so reluctant to work with Michael Owen, firstly by letting him go for peanuts and now the refusal to resign him. Can't understand it myself espeically when he's signed such a mediocre player like Crouch.
We HAD to let him go for Â£8 million - 4 months later he could have left for far less than peanuts, eg nothing at all.
Cracked up when I heard on the radio that Wigan were putting in a â‚¬15 million bid for Owen.
Man City could do with another striker...
I heard that too. Doubt that he'll want to be playing in the Championship next year.
Yeah that was a good chuckle.
Quite why he would turn down Newcastle yet sign for Wigan, I have no idea. Fantastic tabloid journalism imo.
Nothing really seems to be happening with Owen, wouldn't be at all surprised if he ends up staying at Madrid, Lyon would certainly have been an interesting move, linking up with Houllier again, Newcastle is obviously the best option for him . One thing though with all the journalists and pundits saying that Owen must be playing first team football in world cup year seems a bit odd to me esepcially considering that the players who performed at Euro 2004 were the ones who weren't playing week in week out, Rooney, Baros, Charisteas, Dellas etc.
He's moving, and with Baros' sale, I'm sure it's to us.
I heard Cisse might be moving (possibly on loan). Any1 else heard this? A bit unfir on a bloke who hasn't yet had a major chance to show his skill.
His legs break far too easily to be a top footballer.
I'm not sure how Benitez will react to Owen trying to force his hand, if Benitez had wanted Owen badly enough in the first place he would have made sure a new deal was signed before he went to Madrid.
This is developping into a bit of a farce, they should all just get it sorted once and for all.
