Owen On The Sick List ... Again
Michael Owen will NOT be at the JJB on Wednesday for the SKY TV spectacular.
Owen, who seems to be fit BEFORE an away game but doesn't quite make it onto the field, blames a persistent groin injury.
Full-back Celestine Babayaro, who faced the wrath of Souness after almost seeing a red card at Goodison, is also sidelined by a similar injury. The list of the walking-wounded is much the same: Kieron Dyer (illness), Stephen Carr (hernia), Steven Taylor (shoulder) and Craig Moore (hamstring) all stay at home.
Newcastle (from): Given, Harper, Ramage, Elliott, Boumsong, Bramble, Parker, Solano, Bowyer, N'Zogbia, Emre, Luque, Clark, Faye, Brittain, Shearer, Ameobi, Chopra.
