TalkSPORT hosts debate Michael Owen’s recent Newcastle comments

Premiership Picks

Poor old Newcastle United.

If you didn’t already know, Michael Owen has a new book coming out called ‘Reboot’.

Supposedly detailing all the bits and bobs he couldn’t release in his first biography or couldn’t reveal in person, the latest edition of his life on paper had a few choice words for his former employers Newcastle.

The fallout from this was then broadcasted over the internet when Magpies legend Alan Shearer took offence and reacted on Twitter – because that’s what grown adults do nowadays.

Understandably, Owen’s comments have opened up lines of debate amongst commentators. Does he have the right to say these things, for example, and is it acceptable that he has? Does he have a responsibility to be respectful to those who so feverously followed him, and helped pay his wages, or is he well within his right to openly scrutinise them?

Well, if you’re struggling to answer those questions yourself, talkSPORT’s Andy Goldstein and Jason Cundy are here to offer a helping hand…

Advantage Cundy for us. Owen should have the freedom to write whatever he wants in his book – heck it might even make him seem more interesting, and footballers most certainly have the right not to be happy at a club.

However, to essentially stick your fingers up at fans, as Owen has done, is pretty poor taste. Finger wagging time.
