Terry: Owen Is A Nightmare For Me

John Terry joined the growing number of people who believe Michael Owen will be a success at Manchester United. I'd just love if they were able present some kind of convincing argument, too...

"I`m sure playing for Manchester United and training with those players day in, day out, will mean he is only going to score goals, which I must say is a bit of a nightmare for me as a Chelsea player because I want to win the League and get the trophy back off Manchester United," Terry told the Evening Standard.

"He only played 12 or 13 minutes against us in the Community Shield but he still showed glimpses of what he can do.'

I did not see much, to be honest... but of course he can't be expected to set the world on fire. But it's nice to hear Terry acknowledging that he's afraid of Owen and his goalscoring ability.

Of course Terry talked about Owen's World Cup chances as well but I'm rather fed up with those kind of comments: people make it look like that about Owen the only important thing is whether he'll make it back into the England squad. Well folks no: it might be his priority but his first job will still be to fire United to glory. The question is not whether Capello will recall him but whether he will perform well enough to justify his transfer to England's biggest club.

Owen's movement is always a worry for defenders. Valencia f.c saw what owen is capable of (in terms of movement not finishing :|). also why do non united fans comment here more then actual united fans? :S get over US ffs

That is a very good point. There are an awful lot of non-United fans that comment on here, I don't get why they do. These people's opinion are irrelevant. Face it Zae, Owen has come to United to get back in the England squad & beat Sir Bobby's goalscoring record. Part of the reason why I didn't and still don't want him at United. He can do his 2 years and then do one. When I'm at the game I'll get behind Owen, but thats only because he's wearing the United shirt. I would (begrudingly) do the same if we had signed Viera for example and he's a bigger ****, than Owen ever was/is. Either way if he scores loads of goals and we do well I'll be happy, if he doesn't I'll be proven right and be happy with a few quid in my pocket! I would laugh like hell if we win the title with Owen being winner of the golden boot only to then get injured in the final few minutes of the last game of the season which rules him out of the World Cup!
