[PICTURE] Michael Owen Lifts His 1st Premier League At Long Last

By on May 23, 2011

Who would have thought that Michael Owen, the Liverpool kid, who scored goals for fun at Anfield for a good eight years would be lifting his first Premier League trophy for Manchester United in possibly his last season at the top level of football.

He capped it with a clinical finish to place the cherry firmly on the delicious Manchester United cake, as his second Premier League goal of the season condemned a brake Blackpool to relegation.

A jubilant Owen told MUTV:

“As they say, if you can’t beat them, join them. I won a lot of trophies with Liverpool but to win the Premier League is the pinnacle of anyone’s career.

“I’m very proud today. I’ve not played as much as I did last year but we all have to play our part to win the league and it’s been enjoyable, nonetheless.

“I’m really pleased and proud to have played with a great crop of lads and obviously the manager’s second to none.”

468 professional appearances, 218 career goals, 15 years and at last, at long last, a Premier League title. Congratulations Manchester United, congratulations Michael Owen.

Tell me what you think!

    Micky Owen has scored 2 prem goals all season – 1 of which was after the title was won. He can be very proud of his contribution (the fat, greedy, traitor that he is)

    If you can’t beat them, join them… about sums him up really. Hope that medal provides some comfort when you’re at anfield in ten years time and see pictures of gerrard, fowler and carragher on the wall and it dawns on you, that you’ll never be a legend anywhere.

    @Toomaz He is a legend at UNITED…and UNITED is as big as it gets!!!:) We united fans always value those who help us…unlike some other fans…we are gracious. In ten years maybe gerrard and carragher will have their pics on the walls of anfield…but in 10 yrs they still wudnt be as big as united for owen shall have a name in the GREATEST team of the BPL…not the 2nd greatest. 🙂

    Where was Judas on that fantastic night in Istanbul (at home watching it on Telly). If owen had not such a gambling problem he could have afforded to come back to Anfield – instead he went to Newcastle and ruined his career and now he went to manure at old toilet playing for sir phallic – well woopy do.
