MO attacks back

Following a weekend and midweek witchhunt by the nationals, Michael Owen has hit back at the critics who have all but written him off following his latest lean spell in front of goal. With the likes of Tony 'World Class` Cascarino trying to scrape together a few shekels writing oh-so controversial newspaper columns, Owen has written it all off, saying:

"I will wake up in the morning and know where I stand in terms of my performances, my standing in the game, the goals I will score given the opportunities and everything else. I have been around a long time now and everyone knows if I get chances, then I will score goals.

Stats are there and people will say eight games and all that. But one of the games, I came off after two minutes, I did my ankle, the next one, I came on for 10 minutes coming back. You can straight away narrow it down to five or six games before you even start. You go on a good scoring run and everyone will twist them into your favour as well.

I am a bit long in the tooth for all that rubbish, but it (the visit of Portsmouth) is certainly a game that I could do with finding the goalscoring touch. I have always said if I am given the chances, then I am totally confident I will put them away."

Never tease a top goal scorer over a drought. That's when he is at his most dangerous. Personally I hope he keeps shooting blanks for a bit longer & then bangs a few against 'boro.
