"Michael Owen spent most of his homecoming watching the team he left produce a display of crushing efficiency as Liverpool beat Newcastle 2-0 at Anfield."
Michael Owen retreated ashen faced to Tyneside last night with the jeers of those who once adored him haunting his thoughts and defeat chilling his soul.

As much as I wish Owen came back to Liverpool in the summer, he didn't, and so he came back to Anfield last night as a Newcastle player, to boos and jeers.
Now, I don't think he deserved those jeers.
After all, come on people, it's not as if he scored. In fact, it's not as if he did ANYTHING at all. Carragher and Hyypia smothered him out brilliantly, and he didn't get much service from his teammates either.
No service, no goals. Sorry Mikey. Now don't you wish you had some of those crossess that were being pinged to Morientes and Crouch instead?
Oh well, Mike Owen or not, it's another win for Liverpool. EIGHT consecutive wins AND CLEAN SHEETS in the Premiership. How you like THEM apples huh?
