Michael Owen thinks there is no better place to be than Newcastle upon Tyne, when the team are winning football matches. Isn’t that true!
Michael Owen – delighted after scoring Newcastle’s 3rd goal last Sunday
That hasnâ€™t been too many times this season but with two wins in a row things are looking up in Newcastle and at the club.
Michael Owen at last is being taken to the hearts of the Newcastle fans as he has shown, since Kevin Keegan made him captain, that he has the club at heart now.
Michael also got a standing ovation from the traveling Newcastle faithful last Sunday, when he was replaced during the closing stages of the 4-1 win against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.
Michael talked to Newcastle World TV this week.
“The fans are world renowned for being very vocal and very supportive,” “We have had a poor season over all, let’s not forget that.â€
“But when things are going poorly even, they still turn up in their droves and when you’re winning there is no place like Newcastle.
“You can go out with your friends and family and feel good about yourself and the whole place is buzzing.â€ “Hopefully now, looking towards the end of the season, we can still get good results and finish on a high.â€
“If that’s the case then I’m sure it will be exciting and everyone won’t be able to wait for next season.”
It’s obvious Michael is going to be a key player for Kevin Keegan in the seasons ahead, and we expect Michael to sign an extended contract at the club in the summer.
We also expect Michael to hold onto the captaincy next season, as he’s done a really good job since he took over, and obviously has the respect of his team mates.
In fact Michael has done really really well this year, after a very tough initial period at the club. Good for him.
