Owen return may be 12 weeks away

Recommended Posts

If he has played his last game, he's cost us £1.6m per game or £2.3m per goal....

 

Either way, that doesn't look good. But as has been said, no-one's fault really...

Is that including his alleged £100,000 a week wages?

We've managed to knock him down 10k a week? Excellent. Allegedly.

Annoying, but not really anyone's fault.  Or are we blaming Souness for this one, Renton? :naughty:

The money could certainly have been better spent, but without Owen we would almost certainly get relegated. What is it, 6 points from the games he's missed? I blame Souness for the state we're in, yes, but in a more global sense than the signing of one player. You have to look at the bigger picture on who he got rid off as well. We should never have had to rely purely on one injury prone striker.

If he'd only had more cash though he could have brought in a few more injury prone strikers.

Not that long ago that we relied heavily on the injury prone Craig Bellamy and before that, an injury prone Alan Shearer.

 

We went to shit when they were out of action as well IIRC - Souness's fault? :unsure:

Did we really? We obviously missed Bellamy when he was out, but I think we never relied on him as much as we rely on Owen. This has to do with the fact that under Robson the team was able to get results even from games even with important first teamers missing, e.g. the Championsleague games after the red card fiasco.

 

Under Robson we were a team under Souness we are a one-man-show.

By the way, by asking me specifically, you're not obsessively stalking me are you? :unsure:

Typical NUFC that we have narrowed the specifics of his injury down to a mere difference of 6 bloody weeks!

 

Owens injury does highlight how much Sounes has made us rely on a player who's hardly been here that long. In fact Souness is so shite we were relying on Owen several months before we even thought of signing him!

 

As Isegrim said though, in the past we weren't as good when certain players were out injured (nobody is), but we had a team, tactics, actually created and scored goals and could at the very least get by without these players.
