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.
