United - Owen Fit!

United - Owen Fit!

Having picked up a hamstring injury in the fixture against Sunderland, on October 2nd, it appears that Michael Owen is fit and raring to go.

With a full festive programme about to hit us there is the distinct possibility that Michael could well feature at some time or other, possibly from the bench.

Talking about his fitness fight, Michael had this to say to the red-top tabloids,

"I`m fit and I`ve been in full training for three and a half weeks now."

"The hard bit is getting back into the side, trying to force my way back into the squad. That`s not easy at United."

"There are that many quality players at United that you`re given as much time as you need to come back from injury."

"But I`m fit and hope to play a part in the games over Christmas."

How big a part do you reckon Michael will play over the festive period?

I can only see him the last 20-25 min. if we are in a comfortable lead. SAF will continue with Rooney and Berba, and throw in Hernandez, Owen will get very few minutes if any on the pitch. I predict him leaving United in the summer.

Though Michael Owen is a great footballer, and he seems a very decent human being. Would love to see him remain a United players, and pass on his invaluable knowledge to the youngsters.

Hopefully nordkap he can warn the youngsters not to go to Madrid, its a career killer.

You are absolutely right FN7, I cannot understand the lure of RM, they havent won anything for years, the club is run like a circus act, and La Liga, is a warm equlivant of the Scottisch PL, there is no competition at all. Is it about the money, maybe, ambition - cant be, they all sit on the bench, vanity, maybe. In my humble opinion the PL is the only place to be, fierce competition, the best fans, and the most viewed league in the world, however with the TV revenues being shared unlike Spain, and lower taxation in Spain, RM will be more attractive for a few footballers, however it cannot be due to ambition..
