Having been quiet in the light of our relegation in May, JFK has finally shoved his head over the parapet to state that the wage parasite has got a good move to Man Utd. No sh*t Sherlock. Kinnear said:
'I wouldn't say I am surprised (about the move), because he is a very talented player. I wish him good luck. I think he will score goals. To be fair, I think he would be the first to put his hands up and say that he had a disappointing time (at Newcastle).
But I am sure with all the great players around him at Man United that can only enhance his game. Michael's fitness has always been his Achilles heel, if you like. I am sure that is something Sir Alex has taken into account.
He could rest him and play him a few games. Man United could be in that sort of position. The truth is, when we were at Newcastle there was a lot of burden on his shoulders because he was the main striker.
Unfortunately, his fitness levels have let him down on a few occasions. But hopefully he has got over that. Hopefully he will go back to the Michael Owen that we all used to know.
He's right up there with the best of them. I like to think I played with one of the best strikers in the world in Jimmy Greaves and Michael has similar attributes.
He's a great pro, he's very dedicated, he's a really nice lad and I'm sure Alex will get the best out of him. Numerous clubs looked at him in the last window. There was a big chance of him going to Everton. But that didn't materialise and that fell through.'
