What If....

What If....
A controversial, debatable topic here. In the pre season, when strikers were on the agenda, none other then Michael Owen, former Liverpool striker, available for a free transfer.

After weeks of interest in the striker, Sam Allardyce refused to make the signing, claiming Owen's run of injuries was simply not worth the risk for Blackburn.

Michael Owen was then snapped up by Sir Alex Ferguson, and has proven to be a useful squad player for the Red Devils, with a hattrick in today's Champions League encounter.....

Is this one that got away?

i wouldn't back him for rovers, so i wouldn't say he got away. they don't play him as a regular striker like we need, meaning he'd probably get injured and we're more physical too. also, he'd cost too much on the wage bill. if we played him once off and could afford it, sure. but since we'd play him on a regular basis, he'd be a liability. and we'd be paying a bunch for nothing.

As a Yank, I would love it if Owen was on the England bench instead of Beckham. For all the flak that Beckham gets he's still a producer. Owen, on the other hand, is a natural finisher living on borrowed time. Robbie Fowler would score goals for ManU if he was four years younger too.

If it wasn't clear, I'm glad we didn't sign MO. His best years are long behind him.

Another good topic sas, I'll bring my thoughts to the forum. However, as I've got to leave for work soon I'll have to save them for Friday (time permitting before work!!)
