FFS demands loyalty

FFS demands loyalty

In probably one of his greatest 'Dumb and Dumber' moments, Freddie Shepherd has demanded that 'Umbro Representative and England's Finest' Michael Owen show the club some loyalty. Unbelievably it looks as if Jabba has actually agreed to Owen's request to have a trigger clause put in his contract, meaning we can be right royally rogered just like Boro were when Liverpool came knocking for Ziege and Zenden. Another fine mess Frederick. No doubt you won't be the one taking the £8million hit on the difference between his transfer fee back when we signed him and the release clause. The imbecile added:

'Michael has two choices: he can come out and tell our fans that he is happy here. Or I tell him none of the big four are interested. Because that's the case. These suggestions will not impress our fans after what has happened in the last couple of years. This report was a very thinly-disguised attempt to flog Owen from under our feet, sourced very close to the player or those who look after him. The information must have come from there, not from our club.

The loyalty this club has shown him over the last two years, when he had injury problems in his first season and had missed virtually all of this season, deserves something in return. He has had a really serious injury and no-one, least of all one of the biggest clubs, is likely to take a risk at this stage. He has to prove to everyone, himself and Newcastle United included, that he is fully recovered and not about to break down again.'

You have to remember the so called "loyalty" he showed us by holding the club to ransom regarding Real Madrid deal. He screwed us big style a couple of days before the transfer window closed. Owen looks after number one. He's probably the most selfish footballer out there. Whether thats right or wrong who knows...

Im a Liverpool fan and although I like Owen as a player, as a person I think he is selfish and looks after only himself. I would still be pleased if he came back to Anfield as he is just what we need but he owes Newcastle his loyalty after collecting a few million in wages and not having given anything back. It would be disgusting if he left Newcastle to go to another club this summer.

Have to agree, would be good to get a comment from Owen, staying or going, make your mind up time. Loyalty in football? Novel idea.

I got the impression at the time that he never wanted to sign for Newcastle. I think he will leave, however i think he may well be in for a shock if he thinks the top 4 are gonna come in for him.

Agree mackaavfc, he was forced into a corner and jumped. It was obvious he wanted to move to Liverpool but they wouldn't pay the fee.

I agree with everyone including Fat Fred. (thats a ****in first you ba*ta*ds!) He seems to only want to look after himself and if thats the case he should never of signed for Nufc. We produce heroes..not selfish cun*s! so i agree that he 'needs' to publicly announce where his faith lies. If he chooses to leave in the summer it would be utter disrespect to the best fans in the country and i would'nt wanna have that on my shoulders.

Another one of the football mercenaries. The difference is he does it with a smile on his face whilst Anelka sulks.

The difference is Newcastle cant offer European football or trophys in the future.Freddie sold him the dream but its been a nightmare & Owen"s talents deserve better than that.A future chasing Kevin Davies flick on"s wont appeal to him,just as watching Corrie on a wednesday night wont either.

Owen deserves a good kicking if he goes. He's hardly had a hard life swanning around Newmarket and treehouses. Get him back doing some graft and if we're still not there at the end of next season no one will blame him.
