"Michael is the
type of player that if you had 90 games, he would want to play in 91."
"He is very good
on the ball, is intelligent and scores goals, but also very quick and
can run in behind
defenders. I am very happy if he wants to be the new Alan Shearer."
"He's a born goal
scorer, a killer. A clean killer. It's an odd and potent combination.
Owen is invariably
polite, never pops off in the press, and says he doesn't drink beer, tea
"Nobody knows how
fast he is until they play him. He has games when everything he touches
turns to gold."
"He's so driven
to improve. That's not common among English players. Sometimes when you're
too good too
young, it's hard to find the motivation to improve. Michael isn't like that."
"He's the most
exciting thing to happen to English soccer in years. Rarely have I seen
so much in so little time."
