Although this season is not over yet I just wondered what your thoughts on the possibility of having Michael Owen and Owen Hargreaves at the club next year?

i would like to see both of them in a united jersey, but the injury of micheal owen is somewhat familiar to us (Saha)...therefor i think we should look for a different striker

Owen Hargreaves, yes, he pleaded to Manchester United to sign him and he wants to play for us next season and what about Fernando Torres, I thought we were going to sign him? Or that dutch international Huntelaar?

i think manutd should sign a tall striker who is able to head the ball to be rooney's partner,Owen is prone to injury and his height is not enough.I think Eto'o is a good choice,now he is not happy in Barselona.

where would hargreaves fit into the team? would it mean carrick who has been getting better and better this season being on the bench? As to Michael i would say no - too injury prone. Eto'o i dont think would come, torres will cost alot as will david villa. I think they should get tevez and a defender in for cover and rotation.

Huntelaar is 6'1.25" in height. He's no Crouch, but I guess that's better than Wazza's 5'10" eh? He's young, strong and a very good poacher. Linking up with United will only improve his skills. I'd opt for him if there were a choice between him and Villa, now that Torres more than likely won't be coming here.

About michael Owen. I wrote this in another Owen thread in transfer talk. Also Hargreaves will be a top signing, with our injury crisis I think we'd love to have him now. It's not just about midfield with him, people seem to forget he can play at either fullback position aswell.

Mid 30's??? Are you still talking about OWEN??? Michael Owen Will be 27 years old at the start of next season!!! and still has PLENTY to offer. He is injury prone but not to the extent that most people think. In his liverpool years he made 40 or more appearances in 5 out of 7 full seasons and in the other 2 seasons made 30 and 38 apps. He scored over 20 goals in each of those 5 seasons and in his 2 injury hit seasons he still managed 19 and 12 goals. Look at Saha's stats and injury record and I think you'll find it compares rather favourably. That was all playin in the Liverpool team, he would score far more playing in a UTD team that plays better, quicker football and creates TONS more chances per game. He managed 45 apps for Real Madrid and even scored 7 in 11 apps at Newcastle before he broke his foot. The fact that he played for the scousers is IRRELEVANT IMO. Robbie Fowler was a boyhood Everton fan and we all know about his career at Liverpool, I would happily put Gerrard or Terry in the UTD team tomorrow. All that matters is if he would be commited to the club and could improve the team that we currently have. The answer to both would be emphatically YES!!!
Rooney and Owen have pretty much been awesome when playing together for England and I have no doubts that he would be a TREMENDOUS signing for MUFC.

i agree...but remember as players get old...they loose pace and become prone to injuries more and more...so i still say micheal isn't the best choice availabe...maybe a plan B in case we couldn't get the services of other targets...
and lets not forget giuseppe rossi who has been outstanding for parma since he went there on loan...i think he will be featured more and more next season, not to mention that smith has made a good partnership with rooney, better than Saha...and OG solskear is still there for another season, so do we really need a striker as much as we need a midfielder or a long term replacement for giggsy?
