Michael Owen had a wonderful event happen this week â€“ the birth of his third child. His beautiful wife Louise gave birth on schedule earlier this week.
On the work side of things however, Michael says he feels sorry for the Newcastle fans – who constantly have to read stories linking him with a move away from Newcastle.
Michael is a quiet lad, and has given up denying all the stupid stories about him, there are just so many of them. Michael is used to it – but the gossip papers continually link him with moves away from St. Jamesâ€™ Park.

Even though Newcastle have stated there is no longer any buy-out clause in Michael’s contract, facts donâ€™t seen to deter stories linking him with a move to Manchester City for Â£6M in January â€“ which is complete and utter nonsense.
However, in truth Michael has never spoken a bad word against the club, the area or the fans. On the contrary, Michael and his family seem to just love life in the North East, and he has often talked of his desire to remain at St. James’ Park.
Michael told nufc.co.uk this afternoon:
“I feel sorry for the fans more than myself because I’m used to it now and I’ve had worse things thrown at me,”
“I don’t where it comes from and there has been speculation since I arrived at Newcastle.â€ “No month goes by without someone saying I’m going here there and everywhere.
“I’m still here and I’m looking forward to Saturday’s game and the rest of the season with Newcastle.â€ “I signed a four-year contract and I believe that actions speak louder than words, I’m still here and I love it here.â€
“There has been no talk of a new contract because I still have two years to run on this one.â€ “I do my best every time I play, but no matter what I do or say there will still be stories and that’s frustrating for the fans.”
We think it’s about time Michael got a break from the fans. Yes, he loves playing for England, but that’s because he’s a patriotic person and loves his country. Not much wrong with that. Heâ€™s a good lad, there’s not much doubt about that, and certainly still a great player – and it’s obvious he loves life on Tyneside.
And itâ€™s a very happy time for Michael this week with the birth of his 3rd child. Maybe heâ€™ll celebrate on Saturday with a goal. Hey â€“ a hat-trick would be very nice â€“ one for each of his kids 😀
