Michael Owen talked to the Evening Chronicle today about visiting the stadium where he broke his foot a few years ago, but Michael is currently full of confidence having scored 4 of the teamâ€™s 6 goals under Kevin Keegan.
Michael Owen – ready to face Woodgate again
Michael Owen talked to the Chronicle:
â€œLooking back at that day at Spurs it was a bad part of my career, as it probably set the ball rolling for all the injuries â€“ the broken foot and cruciate â€“ Iâ€™ve had at Newcastle.â€
â€œIt was a troubled time, but certainly I donâ€™t believe itâ€™s an unlucky place. Iâ€™ve played there many times, and scored goals there before.â€
â€œI am looking forward to it â€“ I wonâ€™t be concerned going into the game. Weâ€™ve had a decent week, and pushed up the table a little bit.â€
It looks like Michael will be playing against his old Real Madrid team-mate Jonathan Woodgate tomorrow, since Woodgate seems to be fit to play for Spurs. It’s just a pity Jonathan didn’t come to Newcastle in January because we’d be in a much better position if he had arrived.
â€œWoody is a great friend of mine, and a great friend of most of the Newcastle lads, really.â€
â€œEveryone at the club and all the fans love him as well. Heâ€™s a good lad, and a fantastic player. Iâ€™ll be looking forward to seeing him again so soon after this weekâ€™s trip to France.â€
â€œSpurs are on an upward curve, so anything we can get out of that game will be a bonus.â€
We need at least a draw tomorrow, but a win would go a long way to vanquishing the relegation worries on Tyneside, and give the Newcastle fans a rare time for celebration this season.
