Michael Owen for England (v Germany), 1 September 2001


So, he's on his way then, after the World Cup.

I think the press in this country should sit back and reflect that they need to be careful what they wish for when we get landed with some f*cking useless muppet after the World Cup. Whatever indiscretions there have been, I still maintain he has done a fantastic job and put English football properly back on the map.

I hope we do really well in the World Cup so it reminds everyone what the England managers job is all about....
