Has anyone seen that "Greatest Game Podcast" with Michael Owen and Jamie Carragher?

Owen revealed that he feels tortured every time he goes to Anfield about the regret over the choices he made in his playing career. Both about leaving to sign for Real Madrid and also later signing for Man U.

When he's walking down the line in an interview, all he can hear is "eff off, you effing manc" and he said that he feels like crying. He said that he knows that he cannot change what he did but it absolutely kills him every time he goes to Anfield.

I'm not for once saying to go easy on him. He's reaping what he sowed.

I got too much sick pleasure hearing it as I should really admit. I'm really happy that he regrets it so much.

If you haven't seen it, there's a transcript on 90min.

It’s a good interview! But I’ve no pitty for him are u telling me he didn’t think he’d get stick etc! He’s plenty of money to get over it! And I hope other players learn from it!

08 Feb 2020 19:22:21
Yeah, exactly Jay. I've no pity for him either.

To be honest, it must have taken some balls to admit it, knowing that Liverpool fans would revel in his regret. I hope he feels it every time he comes to Anfield. He could so easily have become an absolute legend, but he squandered it looking for something bigger and the season after he left, we won the Champions league.

The same is happening to Coutinho. I bet he feels a similar way in regards to how he left and that the grass isn't greener on the other side.

Both great players who now can no longer be adored as legends.

I wonder if he'd be so vocal about his regret if Liverpool weren't considered one of the best teams in the world. Would he be saying it ic we were europa league hopefuls?

I don't hate him, at all. He is responsible for some of my best days in football. The brace against arsenal in the cup final! He was brilliant at Liverpool. Balon dor winner. His pace was electric but he had great movement and finishing too. He shouldn't have gone to utd, he shouldn't have gone to real for so little money. I honestly couldn't believe it was 8mil. Its a bit different for professionals though eh, it's their careers. I know Liverpool fans can't forgive him but I think it's wrong to deny he was a brilliant forward in his prime.

I was Devo when Owen left but he made his bed ep!

I don't care where he went after he left us he was finished anyway. the move to Utd from Newcastle who can blame him, we did not want him back so he had the chance to move to the one of the best teams in the world at the time. But we got the best out of him. Peter Schmeichel left utd and ended up at city these things happen in football. But he played a mayor part in the treble in 2001 so I thank him for that and all the good times he gave me as a Liverpool fan. And he left us for Madrid to go play with the best team on the planet at the time but it did not work out because he was a wreck by then.

What happened to the word "forgiveness" guys? At least he isn't going about like Diouf, who spout crap every single opportunity he gets. True Owen blew it but he's trying to make things right, give him a chance will ya.

As for me, I have moved on and like Ed02 says, players are transient employees of clubs, they come and go. He left and we won the UCL, indicating that the club moved forward and that's enough for me. Let's not forget that he's still a human being and players just need d**ks around them to become d**KS like Berahino and Jerome Sinclair of today. Move on guys and let the man be. I was broken by that interview tbh. Just saying.

What I took from the interview was the bit where Michael said "did I think I'll sign for united to spite Liverpool fans for how they reacted to me at Newcastle? Yes". He knew the reaction he would get.

Also, when carra asked him about running down his contract at Liverpool and Owen full on changed the question. He should be an MP.

09 Feb 2020 00:26:12
Perhaps Ed001 would like to re-educate some posters on Owen's toxicity within the dressing room?

Also, where did "I was only going to go to Madrid for a year and then come back" come from? That was never his plan. Madrid just went a splurge and decided they didn't need him.

{Ed001's Note - yeah I don't think people understand how much of a self-centred …… actually I am going to stop there as I don't think I can bear this fake bull from him to try and ingratiate himself with the fans.}

didn't kill anyone. the time to let it go should come soon, not sure when. But I get the sense the match day goers are a different breed and not quite the forgiving bunch lol

I imagine if he did something for the city or the club over time he might get favour back.

09 Feb 2020 09:17:58
Good can't stand the little weasel. He couldn't get away from us quick enough. He has probably seen the adulation some of our ex players get and his ego can't handle not getting the same. He is not fondly remembered at any of his clubs so he is looking for a way back in with us. He can jog on.

09 Feb 2020 14:59:57
I've just listened to the podcast. And I do feel for him. He went to Madrid on the condition he could come back to Liverpool. He was gutted when Newcastle bought him. He loves Liverpool. It wasn't a dig at the fans when he joined utd, it was a dig at the club for not re signing him. He might be a big headed egotistical knob, I don't know I've never met him. But he was a great player, a brilliant forward. I don't know how we didn't win the league with him and fowler with redknapp and mcmanaman hitting balls over the top for them. I always thought he didn't give a toss about us, I know he followed Everton as a kid, but he's a Liverpool fan. I'm one fan who will cut him some slack.

{Ed025's Note - thats called unconditional love robbie, i feel as sorry for him as i do for michael barrymore and prince andrew who are another 2 who wallow in self pity mate..

09 Feb 2020 15:34:32
At least Micheal Owen sweats ed025.

Barry more is a murderer and Andrew is a pedophile. Micheal Owen played some games for football for a team that wears a different kit than the club I love.

I do feel sorry for him. He did a lot for us on the pitch yet other players who did quite little compared to Micheal are loved. He said in his interview that he wished he could change how his heart feels towards Liverpool. It was unusual to hear him talk like that, he's always been supremely confident and head strong. Being booed by the club you love must hurt.

{Ed025's Note - the point is he is wallowing in self pity robbie, he got paid very well for doing his job then through absolute avarice ran his contract down so he could rake in even more by joining real mate, save your sympathy for someone who deserves it like the homeless and people who need to use food banks...not multi millionaires who only think about themselves..

Not strictly true that he was a wreck at Real. He was actually treated pretty badly and hardly ever started. He did score many times when he was brought on, and difficult to see what more he could have done. But like Couts (who should have known better) the grass wasn’t greener in Spain. Their agents just got richer.

Before Klopp arrived and the present quality of this team, I've watched him on TV commenting and analyzing ManU games. Was always bullish and very much pro ManU. The same smile and positivity he now uses for LFC. Forgiveness is fine, but this guy sounds like a self-interested, lying weasel to me. And many people will believe him. The fact that he is a LFC ambassador proves it.
