Michael Owen To Villa Park???

Michael Owen To Villa Park???

Shock horror, Villa are being linked to none other than Newcastle United and former Liverpool and Read Madrid striker Michael Owen.

I thought this would be a good idea, as he will be on a free BUT surely it is too big a risk? I must admit I'm not convinced that Villa are going to join the race for him to be honest. Just my gut feeling. Anyway, Janine Self has a report in The Sun saying we'll join in the bidding.

The report quotes Villa defender Curtis Davies saying he'd love to see him at Villa adding 'People will talk about his wages. But if you are getting him on a free transfer, it offsets that. If we are ever in the running for a player like that, it will show the progression of this club. If he goes somewhere, keeps fit and plays games, he will score goals.'

I do agree, if he is fit, in our team he'd score for fun as we do get a decent supply up to the strikers now and he knows where to be to get those poacher goals which our strikers seen oblivious to, but isn't it a massive IF when you talk about fitness and Owen?

I must admit to get a big name would show how far Villa have progressed. Remember Chelsea did this years ago, taking a few like Gianfranco Zola arguably amongst the very best players to have graced the premiership, as well as Gianluca Vialli to show that they meant business despite the players being towards the end of their careers.

Hmmm, I wonder?

Our latest poll asks if you'd like Owen at Villa or not!

I did sort of agree on the transfer with him when he walked passed me at the Villa v Newcastle game. He smiled, I said see you at Villa Park next season. I think that is legally binding.

easy to say when you aren't the one paying the wages, so I'd go with a yes, lets give it a shot. He is only 29, if he could stay fit then he'd score for fun at Villa. You don't get anywhere if you don't take a risk in life..!

If we can afford him, then i'd welcome him at Villa Park providing he passes the medical! Carew missed how many games this season, yet he's still scored a bucketload for us, and remains a key player. I'd even still be keen on Ashton if he became available, but as JF points out, it's easy to take a punt when it's not your cash.

If he's not after anything stupid like £100,000 per week then I say sign him up but no more than a 2 year deal with options to extend on the club's part. That way there is very little risk and a lot to gain. He may be injury prone but when he's fit he is simply awsome. If we can get him fit then it could revive his England hopes too.
