Anyone know if he is ready to start pre season training?
He isnt carrying any knocks I hope.

Either way, it's going to be strange having him play for us but we wish him all the best.

As the day has worn on, the more I am coming around to the idea. He is happy to take a wage cut which is a very good thing.

Baring he stays fit, he will scores lots goals. No doubt. His goals to games ratio is amazing for all clubs and country. Even for Madrid over half his games were as sub but he still scored plenty of goals for them including in the El Grand Classico.

Im excited

He's the sexiest striker we've had in sometime.

You know, Wazza, Berbatov, Carlito:p

He'll be used as a sub when we're 1 down or drawing level in must win game. Looking at his scoring record and is great, I'm gonna trust Fergie..... lets be fair it's hard to keep 3 world class strikers happy as you seen with Tevez, but Owen could be a sneaky and great addition to the squad..... he's a proven scorer and lets hope he stays fit and plays many games for us.

nope, no knocks, or else it would be reported for sure.

Nani and Berbatov will be happy. We've got a new scapegoat.

He'll be used mainly from the bench, but I'm sure is capable of starting games when Berba and Rooney are out form, injured or suspended.

Good signing, but I, along with the majoity, hope it's not our last!

I can see him being our third choice striker , playing in a kind of supersub role filing in for berba and rooney when they get injured .

how did he pass the medical !!!!:eek:

will be good if he stays fit. I really thought he would end up back with Rafa "no money to spend" Benitez.

Awful signing.

Anyone who's watched him consistently (and isn't a biased fool) over the last two years will tell you that even when fit (Rarity) he's not what he was.

Brown - Rio - Vidic - Evra

Valencia - Carrick - Anderson - Park/Nani

Owen/Berbatov - Rooney​

That's not too shabby, but there's still room for improvement and I hope Fergie still has one or two targets in mind.

This could bring the best out of him, it's worth a try. If he regains his scoring boots we've just snapped up one hell of a finisher.
