'If It's Football, It's Vital'

JFK supportive of Owen

With every Tom, Dick and Harry having their say on Owen`s England omission, it seems more appropriate that his current club manager has backed the player to bounce back. With Owen more likely to be at Ascot than Wembley, the rest weekend should see him come back hungry for NUFC against Citeh in nine days time. JFK said:

'Michael Owen will play for England again, I'm sure about that. He's the fourth best goalscorer in England. I don't just mean now, I mean ever. The England manager just wants to try a few new things out, but Michael will be in his thoughts, I'm confident about that. He is impossible to ignore because he will always score goals, it's as simple as that.

Michael will just get on with it and he will continue to focus on his Newcastle career, because he is that type of person. He's been into training this week and he has been fine. He is a model professional and I've thoroughly enjoyed working with him already.'

Owen should be in the England squad. Almost all England fans would agree with that. Capello doesn't know what he is doing.

Owen should be in the Squad obviously Capello has his favourites and does not pick the goalscorers on goals scored what an idiot.
