What would you do if you were in Michael Owen's shoes? Let's face it, if Alan Shearer DID sign for Man Utd when they tried to sign him three years ago and returned to St James' Park, could you imagine him celebrating if he scored? Unthinkable? So where does that put Owen?
Owen: 'I can already sense a hubbub around my return although, knowing Alan Shearer as I do, he will probably overshadow it by breaking Jackie Milburn's goalscoring record. It's bound to be a strange day because of my long association with Liverpool but I am sure that they will understand that I will be 100% committed to the other team.
'I remember a conversation with Jamie Carragher a while back when we saw a player looking downcast after scoring against his old club. I don't think either of us could understand that and, if I score, I will celebrate as joyfully as I did at West Ham.
'I won't shy away or feel guilty or embarrassed, but nor will I be running over to the Liverpool bench and sticking two fingers up. Why should I? Rafael Benitez was very decent and straightforward when I left and, in August, he attempted to buy me back.
'I knew from my visits to St James' Park and from Mr Shearer that scoring goals for Newcastle would be a fantastic way of making a living and it is.'
