Daily Round Up - 13/03/07

Daily Round Up - 13/03/07

First up it`s over to the reserves who, despite 15 year old Ryan Donaldson scoring for them, lost 2-1 over at Morecombe against Blackburn Rovers` stiffs. Other news included Invisible Oli completing the 90 minutes along with Alan O`Brien and Matty Pattinson.

Meanwhile Glenn has revealed he is very optimistic about England`s Michael Owen making a return to action this season. Speaking to SkySportsNews he said:

'Michael is doing well. He has got a specific programme he is working to and he is right on target to where he should be. He has had no setbacks and we don't expect any. There is no exact date set on when he will return but Michael has his own goal and he feels he will play before the end of the season.'

Meanwhile the Chronicle believe that if Stuart Pearce gets the axe from the England Under 21s then GR will be the man to take over from him. In the mean time the boss has urged Damien Duff to keep up his recent good form:

'I think last Thursday was Damien Duff's best game for us since we brought him to the club from Chelsea last summer. He's got great ability and this is something he is never going to lose and everyone accepts just what a good player he is. Like a lot of our players he has had a bad injury this season, but now he is looking as though he is finally getting over the knee problems he picked up at Arsenal in the middle of November. I have to say that he has been fantastic and he has been flying in training this week.'

Finally congratulations to Andy Carroll who has picked up the Wor Jackie award at the sportnewcastle dinner. The striker, who has finally made the Newcastle first team, follows Paul Huntington and Matty Pattinson as a recent winner affiliated with NUFC.

Anyone think Owen will make a succesful comeback or will be soon be crocked again? Maybe an idea for a poll Ross?

He'll be back, not sure if he will be better than ever as he says though, this long out of the game might have got his hunger back but will he still have that edge? If he can stay fit he is quality, not many/any better, so it is fingers crossed time for the toon.
