According to The Mirror Martin O'Neill hasn't gone for Michael Owen because he thinks that Gabby Agbonlahor will be England's World Cup striker of choice.
The report by Ralp Ellis repeats the claim that Villa were one of the clubs sent the 'come and get me' brochure on the former Liverpool and Real Madrid striker. The report also suggests that MON might be tempted if Owen will take a reduction in his £50 000 a week wage demands and take a more appearance/goal scoring based deal.
The report also quotes ... wait for it... a source. Something that I'm sure you'll agree, is always very exciting...! :o)
The HP says:
'The door isn't closed on Owen because the club will monitor the situation, but the priority for the manager is to strengthen in midfield and defence and he has great faith in Gabby's potential. He has all the attributes of a young Michael Owen.'
Our debate rumbles on in the forum, it is now 38 pages long...Michael Owen Thread - Click Here ... what do you think, a good signing or a waste of time?
Gabby's proflie and goalscoring record on the official site: Click Here
2006/2007 - 37 starts (1 sub appearance) = 9 goals
2007/2008 - 37 starts (0 sub appearance) = 11 goals
2008/2009 - 35 starts (1 sub appearance) = 12 goals
Gabby does seem to fade in and out through a season and goes on very long dry runs goalscoring wise but then again, the lad isn't even 23 until October this year... So what do you think, do you have the same faith in Gabby that MON seems to have?
Our latest poll asks what you think of Gabby v Owen!
