Sir Alex is apparently delighted with his capture of ex-dipper Michael Owen. The injury-prone, soon-to-turn 30 striker signed a two-year contract at Old Trafford and the manager praised him to the high heavens.

‘Michael is a world class forward with a proven goalscoring record at the highest level and that has never been in question. Coming to Manchester United with the expectations that we have is something that Michael will relish.”

I do have my doubts about that – however, as always, I trust Fergie’s judgment. Hopefully this will turn out to be good business. Ten league goals and I’ll say it was a very neat idea.
