Michael Owen’s arrival at United was a kick in the teeth for Liverpool fans. ABUs laughed at the signing of a player considered way past his prime. And that was after laughing at the brochure he had made to parade his abilities around boardrooms up and down the country.
Now another Owen, this time an ex-United player, has produced his own kind of video brochure, and looks set to join our crosstown rivals City. The parallels are unparalleled! Two Owens, two Brochures, two injury-ravaged footballers, two traitors? What do you think?
