Kinnear`s goal: Owen`s new deal

Unsurprisingly, Joe Kinnear`s first and foremost task as Newcastle manager until the end of the season is to tie down Michael Owen to a long term deal, save us missing out on keeping one of the few world class players we have and also on the massive investment we made in him during the summer of 2005. Kinnear said:

'I spoke to Michael first because he is captain and then I sat down with the rest of the players.
"Now I have permission to address it. I will be trying to sort out Nicky Butt and Michael Owen. I have spoke to Michael he is prepared to listen to what I have to say. If I can be blunt, it makes sense that we need to protect the valuation of the club.

We need to protect the club. I explained it to Mike to protect the assets he has already got. It`s in my power to sit down and talk with you and every other player. I hope to have 80% chance of keeping Michael Owen, but I need to sit down properly and talk to him.'

be interesting to see if he does stay, not sure Kinnear has endeared himself to Owen leaving him on the bench though?
The Fear
I don't think Owen will sign. Mucked up completely when we tried to sell the lad to Spuds on deadline day. Just a lost cause and we'll end up with *****ty Alan Smith and Shola leading the line for next season.

If Owen doesn't sign whetre the feck is he goin? The big clubs wont risk him...and the smaller aint got the cash. No, I reckon you've got him on your treatment bench for the forseeable future!
