Shearer pities Owen`s plight

In an almost déjà vu, history repeating itself sort of situation, Alan Shearer has spoken of his sadness for Michael Owen as the club struggles to match the obvious talent of its current top goalscorer. Having spent years searching for an elusive trophy, it seems like Owen`s struggle will be for Premiership survival rather than FA / UEFA Cups. Shearer said:

'I am really disappointed for Michael and for Newcastle United. He has been great lately and it's a blow. I have watched a lot of Michael's games and he has looked very sharp. He has looked good and taken the responsibility on his shoulders.

Nothing that's happened has fazed him, and I knew it wouldn't. Hopefully, though, it isn't too long-term for him. There is now a chance for somebody else,' Shearer added. 'I don't know how far away Obafemi is or whether he will be fit or not. But if he isn't, it's a chance for somebody else to come in and stake their claim.'
