Apology To Owen Hargreaves

Apology To Owen Hargreaves

I'm man enough to admit when I'm wrong, and recently, I've been wrong on a monumental scale.

Regular readers of this site will have read a few articles having a bit of a dig at England midfielder, Owen Hargreaves, mocking his play and the decision to include him in the squad.

How wrong was I?

Hargreaves has been England's best performer at the World Cup, and if he can perform like that week in week out he would be a great addition to anyones club. He was one of the few players to show heart all the way through the tournament, and didn't even get down hearted when he was boo'ed by a small selection of England fans. A true professional.

We football supporters are a fickle breed, and I fully expect Owen's inclusion for the foreseeable future.

I also would like to issue an apology to Vital member leewortley who correctly pulled me on the subject and gave opinions on the player which turned out to be entirely correct, and more begrudgingly, an apology for mocking Vital Spurs' weststandvoice' for stating that Hargeaves was good enough for Spurs. I take that back............

He's too good for Spurs.

Congratulations on turning a lot of peoples head's this summer Owen, you're one of very few positives to come from England's World Cup.

i'm not english... but just pointing out that hargreaves was meant to be shielding the back 4 allowing fat frank and gerrard to get forward... hargreaves got forward just as much, if not more... fat frank looked overweight and/or extremely lazy...

I've backed him all the way. He's the best in europe in the holding defensive position. He's also got pace and great vision.
