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.'
