Michael Owen Gets Destroyed On Twitter For Unfortunately Ironic Tweet

Twitter is not exactly forgiving of those who make contradictory or foolish statements. A tweet sent thoughtlessly or without proper consideration will result in merciless condemnation from the Twitterati.

Michael Owen, who in the last eight years of his career played an average of under 14 games per season, scoring approximately 4 goals per season.

Michael Owen, who has perhaps forgotten the second half of his career. To describe it as 'underwhelming' would be like describing Lance Armstrong's Tour de France titles as 'a bit iffy'.

But let's be real here. Most Manchester United fans would probably gladly have accepted Owen's fairly minuscule contribution to United overall, in exchange for the dramatic injury-time winner he scored against their arch-rivals Manchester City around this time seven years ago.

And when you watch it again, you couldn't blame them.
