Shepherd Wants £20m

Shepherd Wants £20m

Yes ... it's all go at St James' Park, as usual.

Owen revealed in The Times how he was given the good news as soon as he came round at the clinic in Denver.

Owen: 'When I came round after my cruciate ligament operation the surgeon was standing by my bedside. 'Whatever makes you retire from football it won't be your knee,' he told me straight away.

'Coming from a man as respected as Dr Richard Steadman that was the perfect way to wake up.

'Perhaps it was walking into his office and seeing all the signed shirts and thank-you letters from dozens of grateful sportsmen, including plenty of familiar names, Alan Shearer, Henrik Larsson, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Craig Bellamy.

'Steve McClaren has been supportive, inviting me to drop by the England team hotel before the game against Andorra. It's nice to know that people are willing you to return, although I have been impressed at how the boys have played without myself or Wayne Rooney.

'It will be frustrating watching others rattle in goals for club and country but I am fortunate in that I don't suffer low periods when I am out with injuries. That is part of the mental strength that has served me so well, and which I am certain will see me banging in the goals in 2007.'

Where is the story about Freddie Sheppard and the 20 million, that is a bit more interesting than the lip service from a surgeon, this 20 million is important, more info and an accurate headline please.
