I generally don’t get too carried with sports related stuff, England test match wins and Man U excepted, but I had to add some kindling to the rumour mill and where Michael Owen may or may not be headed.

Mrs P took the dogs for a stroll round Lyme Park on Saturday. While they were hosing and wiping them down, they spotted a flash car in the car park, a gold Merc, reg no M9 0WEN.

Why Michael and Sir Alex may have chosen this venue for negotiations is anyone’s guess. Perhaps a mutual admiration for Jane Austin novels and the location, Mr D’arcy filmed jumping into the lake in Pride and Prejudice as a metaphor for the early bath.

Whatever, you heard it here first, welcome news though it isn’t. La Owen is a one-trick pony that has lost the trick. I’m happy to be proved wrong, but I doubt it.

    Look, we're desparate. If he'll come, we'll have him. Face it – what else have we got?

    One twilight player who's retiring anyway.

    One kid from the reserves who's well-meaning but bound to be out of his depth in the Prem.

    One useless donkey who thinks he's Tino Asprilla when he's more like Bambi with longer, less predictable legs.

    To be honest, I don't think Souness is helping. As far as the players are concerned, his reputation goes before him.

    I just really hope we have given up on Anelka. I mean come on – what a combination. Him and Sounness…
