"if it moves, kick it. If it doesn't move, kick it until it does"

"And Owen has scored for Manchester United!.......Really!

So it's official, Michael Owen, the former Liverpool sensation has signed for fierce rivals Manchester United on a free transfer for 2 years.

"Michael is a world-class forward with a proven goalscoring record at the highest level," said United boss Sir Alex Ferguson. "Coming to Manchester United with the expectations that we have is something that Michael will relish," added Ferguson.

Owen said United's interest in him came as a surprise, adding: "I had just begun to talk to other clubs when out of the blue Sir Alex phoned me on Wednesday afternoon, invited me to have breakfast with him next morning during which he told me that he wanted to sign me.
"I agreed without a moment's thought. This is a fantastic opportunity for me and I intend to seize it with both hands.
"I am now looking forward to being a Manchester United player and I am fortunate that I already know so many of the players here.
"I missed pre-season last year and am pleased that I will be starting from day one.
"I'd like to think that everyone was quite surprised with my medical.
"I've obviously passed them before, and my fitness is high. A lot is made out of it but I certainly don't feel like I'm injury prone. "I want to thank Sir Alex for the faith he has shown in me and I give him my assurance that I will repay him with my goals and performances."

Well, Owen isn't too old, not by a long shot, and he's still a good striker. He just had a bad spell at Newcastle. That's all.
I want to see what he can still do, prove all the doubters wrong and win a championship with Manchester United. I never doubted Owen, i doubted his choices.
