    @morrissesses
    I haven't noticed. I saw him chase countless lost causes on Saturday. Don't get me wrong, he's off the pace, and seems to be nowhere near as sharp as he once was, but I don't put it down to any "primadonna" attitude.

    I completely agree. I've honestly not seen any (on-field) bad attitude from Ade.

    Conversely Berbatov spend the entire 90 mins whinging at his players and flouncing around like a misundersttod genius who is somehow being forced to slum it at Fulham, and nobody says a word.

    He did score mind you, but still, that's not what the conversation seems to be about.

    He gets so much stick on Twitter, but to me he's just off the pace and low on confidence. The reason he sticks out so much is because is so involved - ergo making an effort. It seems as though because people expected him to be lazy, they're now seeing laziness when it isn't there.

    Personally I'm just seeing woeful performances. I can barely remember a time he's battled for a long ball and won it, or retained possession under pressure. He runs a lot, yet makes very few intelligent runs.

    Is Darren "head down, run to the corner flag" Bent available in the Summer?

    Almost definitely. Its obvious now that he will never play for Villa again and benteke is looking like a player, so he will be at stoke before august

    Has Adebayor learnt the offside rule yet?

    Michael Owen has announced his retirement at the end of the season. Hopefully he goes home to be a family man, I can't stand him as a pundit.

    They've got to wheel him out every Movember though!

    Owen retiring at the end of the season then, he's had an awesome career.

    Although going to Real Madrid was a terrible decision which ruined the rest of his career I feel.

    Absolutely chuffed for Steven Taylor - lad fully deserves the call up. Just hope he can avoid any more major injuries now....

    Well, its easy to say now but he was on fire at the time and Real were/are the biggest club in the world, so you really have to have a crack at it.

    It was his insanely over valued move to newcastle that finished him off.

    Also I recall his stats at Real being great in terms of appearances vs goals right?

    His biggest problem was that knee injury in the world cup (can't remember the match but it was right at the start, near the byline, foot caught in turf, knee popped). He never recovered.

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realise half of them are stupider than that

    Its the game evolving so that a slow midget goal poacher can't justify a place in a first 11 anymore that finished him off.

    Have some respect Roz ffs. The guy goes down as one of the best strikers we have produced.

    Owen became an instant legend for his last minute goal against City. :)

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    It was the Giggs pass to him for the goal for me. But the finish was sublime.

    Wasn't it being injury prone and losing his pace advantage that finished him?

    Losing pace didnt do him, it was his hamstrings. he always scored when he was fit even after he lost a few yeards, he just never was.

    He doesn't appear to mention wanting to spend more time with his kids, I mean horses.

    Wasnt it Owen who, basically, built a street for his family? half a dozen massive houses right next to each other.

    The Owen disrespect saddens me quite a lot. I don't really get the hate. Not his fault injury basically ruined his career.

    His goal against Argentina and his hat-trick in Munich are extremely big football memories for me. I'd say he was our last great International striker in fact.

    Still don't like him, never have and never will.

    It's more his off-field smarmy smugness that I take exception to. Fully agree about his goals for England btw, Munich especially.

    I thought that was Rio. Or Fowler. Or Owen.

    Great player at his peak. I never quite warmed to him as a person.
