Michael Owen is bored of the bench

Michael Owen's decision to retire has absolutely nothing to do with his ability to get injured in almost any situation, but has everything to do with the fact that Stoke won't play him because he's shit.  and injured.

Ahhh I remember the days when Owen was just a spritely 17 year old, absolutely raping Newcastle's back four and then scoring one of the most ace goals ever against Argentina.  Sadly he isn't really remembered for being one of Europe's most deadly strikers because he's spent most of his career being fixed.  So many fond memories, but always in need of repair.  Sort of like that Citroen Saxo I used to have except I don't think Owen's ever helped me have sex in the middle of a field or escape an angry pimp
