Newcastle star Owen gets the wrong end of the stick
You can't blame him for being sensitive but Michael Owen should know better.
The Toon Army would never go as far as to boo their star striker and you have to go some length for the Geordies to get on your back - don't forget Lee Bowyer and Kieron Dyer got a standing ovation a few days after their disgraceful punch up against Villa in 2005!
Owen's fitness of course has sparked a national debate today with many insiders believing there has been a major disagreement about the player's involvement in the two Euro 2008 qualifiers with his manager Sam Allardyce.
But Owen was clearly uptight after heading home the winner against Everton, perhaps in the knowledge that he was booed on to the field.
Yet this was never the case as Blog reader Eds says: "The Press are saying that Owen's goal celebration was down to the fact that he was booed - that is complete nonsense.
"Nobody booed him - if he thinks anyone did he got completely the wrong end of the stick.
"People were booing the fact that a potent match winner in Martins was coming off when clearly the man whose legs had gone was Geremi."
"Owen is a hero and would never be booed at SJP."
Yes, the pocket of travelling Everton fans were jeering the former Liverpool man - and I'm not surprised considering how many times he scored against them - but the disapproval that met his arrival on to the field was indeed aimed only at Big Sam's decision to withdraw Oba Martins from the action.
There's no doubt that Martins seems to have the better relationship with Toon fans between himself and Owen.
But that affinity stems from Martins 17 goals last season and Owen should still realise he is highly regarded by the Geordie nation, the same Geordie nation that turned up in droves to greet his arrival from Real Madrid.
Owen has already stated he owes the Toon Army and in the games he has played, just like he did before his shattered his knee, he has done the business for Newcastle.
Now the hope on Tyneside is that Owen gets through the England games with the minimum of fuss and is fit for the Spurs game when the goal streak continues.
