      Such a shame he left. I don't get angry when I remember this, I just feel disappointed things went that way. But signing him again would be a step back. No, thanks.

      what he said.

      Can't help feeling a little smug about what happened to him after he left us.  If only he'd given it one more season...

      I'd just like to point out that we are not linked to him. He's only coming back to Anfield to play against the reds.

      I think he played his best football in a red shirt. But those days are gone now.

      Owen has always been 1 of my favorite players both for Liverpool and for England, was very upset to see him go.
      saying that i don't think i would want him back.

      Owen will have to take a pay cut or will be sold this summer

      Quote
      Michael Owen's advisers will re-open talks with Newcastle at the start of next week aimed at extending his current deal, but with the club insisting on the proviso that he takes a pay cut.

      Owen's £110,000-a-week deal has 12 months left and there is growing concern at St James' Park that he will negotiate a move for nothing in January.

      The 28-year-old's representatives have, surprisingly, been invited for only one round of talks with Newcastle officials.

      They were told that Owen's new offer, in line with an across-the-board reduction in player salaries, would be around ?80,000-a-week.

      To help offset the cut in pay, Owen will be offered potential bonuses to bring his new package closer to his current deal.

      Owner Mike Ashley wants a huge reduction in the wage bill, which has six players on more than ?3million a year, and is keen that Owen leads the way by agreeing to take less.

      If Owen turns down Newcastle's offer, he will be allowed to leave for around ?5m, with Manchester United monitoring the situation.

      Daily Mail

      Fairly confident that Owen wouldn't take a £30 grand pay cut, but then if nobody else wants him - what choice does he have?

      At £110,000 a week he is ridiculously overpaid.

      We've defo seen the best of Michael....but if he became available at £5m, would you buy him??
      I think he would be a snip at that sort of money, great insurance policy and would compliment Nando perfectly IMO?

      Ive idolised Micheal up until he left us, I thought he optimised all that was great in football, but the fact of the matter is that he's just a greedy b***ard like all the rest of them!
      Knowing how much we f***in loath and despise the Manc's surely he would consider joining them? would he?

      I think maybe I'd consider it for £5m, I  mean he is past his best, but he can still score goals.
      But I don't know if he'd be very good back up seeing as though he always gets injured!

      Very true miss Viking. His legs are goosed.

      I feel we don't have the money to be taking risks.

      He was a great player for us. We got the best out of him. He wanted to better himself rather than be loyal with LFC for a new and exciting chapter in our history.

      Personally, I'm glad this thread is just discussion without any real link.

      This thread is always revived in the transfer window, even if there is no real link, he isn't coming back, he is past his best and he is now only fit for a side of newcastle standard. He has lost all of his pace now, and that was his real threat, if he did come back to us I would him to prove me wrong, but the michael owen days are over now, we got Torres!!

      Yes, he may be injury proned last time, but it happens to the players when they don't really enjoy to play for a team.
      But what it's amazing he's still not satisfied by contract terms with Magpies. If things go on like this, next year he will be a free agent, so it's worth to speak about it next year.
