Michael Owen was a magnificent striker in his day.
Electric at Liverpool and perhaps underrated at Real Madrid, before injuries took their toll on his career he was one of the best finishers around, but all of this does not mean that he makes for a good football pundit.
Lets take Owen's former teammate Gary Neville as an example of a good pundit who actively seeks to enlighten viewers on aspects of the game that they may not be aware of, or something that they wouldn't have noticed from the TV camera angle, whereas Michael Owen says shite like this:
When they don't score.. They hardly ever win. That's their problem, Man City.
That is actually spectacular.
As expected, the reaction was ruthless:
So Michael Owen in his analysis after the City game said that 'When they don't score, they hardly ever win'. What a fucking knobhead.

Some more genius insight from Michael Owen then. So which games did City win when they haven't scored? #fuckingbellend
