In an interesting story that seems to have slipped under the radar of many of the red tops there is a growing belief that England`s Michael Owen could be prevented from playing for the national bandits until the wrangle over his compensation for the WC injury is sorted out. To be honest, it would be music to my ears if the people that actually pay the players` wages could stick it up the arrogant national associations. Looking no further than the recent Martins and Babayaro bother with Nigeria, it would be great if we could set a precedent in this area.
Apparently we are set to challenge the FA in a lawsuit over their ability to call up players. With some calling it the most important footballing case since Bosman here`s hoping the FA get shafted. The buzz line is if our action is successful, clubs would be able to refuse to release players for all England matches unless the FA provide adequate financial compensation. Geddin.
The only issue is what Owen makes of all this. No doubt a dummy would be spat out if he couldn`t play in the first game at Wembley, however I`m sure we`ll see what happens in due course.
