I would have wanted to start by ‘No mates, it’s not Torres I am talking about!’, but the picture above gives the game away in an instant.
I read an article on Caught Offside which suggests that Kenny & Co could be considering a return to Anfield to no other than Michael Owen! Okay, now I got you going and I’m expecting comments ranging from the hopelessly romantic to the blunt swearing!
Fact remains that Owen is a free agent this summer, and Kenny, Stevie and Carra, amongst but most certainly more than others, maintain an unblemished friendship with the Chester-born now 31 year old and he is still very highly regarded. With 118 goals in 216 appearances for the Reds, Owen is up there amongst the best, but there is one important stumbling blocks in the eyes of all Liverpool fans…..he played for the Enemy!
It is known fact that calling Owen injury-prone is an understatement, but then again Dalglish will not want him to lead the line. He will want him and use him as a back up when he is needed and called upon. There would be no signing on fee and perhaps he will be convinced to go for a performance based contract.
I do not think I need to add anything further at this stage. I am sure that the comments coming in will say all there is to say on this possibility. Just let us know if as a Liverpool supporter you are ready to ‘forgive’ Michael Owen and encourage the Club to make an effort to bring him back. Fire away!
