Early life

Owen was bitten by the "football bug" at a very young age. His father, Terry, was a footballer and had previously played for Everton. As far back as Owen could remember he loved kicking a football round with his Dad and two brothers. It was at this time that he began to show a real talent for football and was bought his first pair of football boots when he was seven years old. As his father had played for Everton, it was only natural Michael grew up being an Everton fan.[4] His favourite player was Gary Lineker and he always insisted that he was Gary when he and his dad had a kick about.

When Owen was only seven his father persuaded the manager of Mold Alexandra to let Michael into his team of 10-year-olds. Michael was younger than most, and very much smaller, but he was soon showing off his "flair" and started in most games becoming known as the club's "secret weapon". He also played for his primary school team in Hawarden, Wales, breaking all local scoring records in his first season. He then attended Hawarden High School, where he played for the school team.

Club Career

Liverpool F.C.

At age 13, when Owen started attending Hawarden High School, he became available to sign "School Boy" forms with a club. He held talks with Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal, before he eventually signed for Liverpool, the club that persuaded him to attend the FA's School of Excellence at Lilleshall in Shropshire at age 14.

Liverpool signed Owen after he graduated from Lilleshall at 16, and joined the club on the Youth Training Scheme. With Owen's help, Liverpool's youth team won the FA Youth Cup in 1996.[5] After four months, he signed professional forms for the senior team just after his seventeenth birthday in December 1996.

He made his debut for Liverpool against Wimbledon in May 1997, coming on as a substitute and scoring a goal.[5] With an injury to Robbie Fowler, he was thrust immediately into action as a first team regular alongside the likes of newcomer Paul Ince and playmaker Steve McManaman in the following 1997–98 season. Owen ended that season as a joint top scorer in the Premier League with Blackburn's Chris Sutton and Coventry's Dion Dublin, scoring eighteen goals, and was voted the PFA Young Player of the Year by fellow professionals.

The 1998–99 season proved to be another good season for Owen as he scored 23 Goals in 40 games for Liverpool. Despite his brilliant form, Liverpool were unable to mount anything like a title challenge and their seventh place finish was not enough to attain even a UEFA Cup place.

The next season was a frustrating one for Owen as he was out injured for lengthy periods but nevertheless managed to score 12 goals and helped Liverpool to qualify for the UEFA Cup.


In the run-up to Euro 2000, Owen was suffering from hamstring problems and received treatment from the Bayern Munich doctor, Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfarth.[6] The 2000 UEFA UEFA European Championship, or Euro 2000, was the 11th UEFA European Championship, which is held every four years and organised by UEFA, footballs governing body in Europe. ...

Winning the FA Cup and the UEFA Cup allowed Liverpool to play in the Charity Shield and the European Super Cup at the beginning of the 2001–2002 season. Liverpool won both matches with Owen scoring the second goal of the 2–1 win over Manchester United in the Charity Shield and the third goal in the 3–2 win over European champions Bayern Munich. Liverpool thus became the first English team to win five trophies in one calendar year. Just a week later, Owen would again beat Bayern goalkeeper Oliver Kahn, as the English international hit a hat-trick in England's 5–1 win over Germany in Munich.[7] At the end of the year, Owen became the first English player in twenty years and the only Liverpool player ever to win the European Footballer of the Year award. He was also voted World Soccer player of the year in 2001, the only English player to win it & till date the only winner based in England.

Liverpool finished second in the league in the 2001-2002 season and Owen played a key part in the success, scoring 28 goals including 2 goals against AS Roma in the Champions League second group phase crucial to qualifying for the Quarter-Finals.


The 2002-2003 season saw Owen on top form again as he hit 28 goals. Liverpool were on top of the table and looked like genuine title contenders for the first time in several years but a run of bad results saw them eventually finishing 5th in the table.


Following Gérard Houllier's sacking as Liverpool manager, speculation about Owen's departure from the club began. During the first few Champions League games at the start of the 2004–05 season, Owen sat on the bench to avoid being cup-tied for the Champions League, a factor that would mean that none of the top clubs in Europe would want to sign him.[9] Real Madrid signed him for a fee of £8 million on 13 August 2004, with midfielder Antonio Nunez moving in the other direction as a make-weight.[10] Gérard Houllier, OBE, (IPA: , born 3 September 1947, in Thérouanne, Pas-de-Calais, France) is a football manager. ...

Following their successful bid, Owen was presented with the number 11 shirt by Real Madrid. Owen had a slow start to his Madrid career. He was often confined to the bench and drew criticism from fans and the Spanish press for his lack of form. A successful return to action with the England squad in October 2004 seemed to revive his morale, however, and in the first following match, he scored his first goal for the club, the winner in a 1–0 UEFA Champions League victory over Dynamo Kiev.[11] A few days later, he scored with the first Spanish league goal in a 1–0 victory over Valencia.[12] The scoring spree continued, as he found the back of the net in three of the next four matches to make it five goals in seven successive matches. He ended the season with highly respectable thirteen goals in La Liga, with the season's highest ratio of goals scored to number of minutes played. Following Real's signing of two high-profile Brazilian forwards, Robinho and Júlio Baptista in the summer of 2005, the speculation arose that Owen would return to the Premier League. During his time at Real Madrid, Michael Owen scored 16 goals from 41 games, many of which were substitute appearances.[13] Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

Newcastle United F.C.

On 24 August 2005, Newcastle United announced that they had agreed a club record fee of £16 million to obtain Owen, although they still had to negotiate with the player's advisers. Liverpool and local rivals Everton entered the fray, but were unwilling to match Madrid's asking price. As the 2006 World Cup loomed in a year, Owen wanted to get more playing time to secure his position as the first choice striker in the English squad and joined Newcastle amidst rumours that he had inserted an escape clause valued at £12 million.[14] On August 31, 2005 Owen finally signed a four-year contract to play for Newcastle United, despite initial press speculation that he would rather have returned to Liverpool.[15]. With the metro system being packed to the rafters with black and white shirts making their way to Central, Monument and Haymarket stations[16], roughly 20,000 fans were present at Newcastle's home ground of St James' Park for Owen's official unveiling as a Newcastle player.[17] He scored his first goal for the club on his second appearance, the second goal in a 3–0 away win at Blackburn Rovers on September 18 – Newcastle's first win of the season. Owen scored his first hat-trick for Newcastle in the 4–2 away win over West Ham on December 17.[18] It was also a "perfect hat trick", with one goal scored with each of his left foot, right foot, and head. is the 236th day of the year (237th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Owen has been very injury prone in sustaining serious injuries since joining Newcastle. On December 31, 2005, Owen broke a metatarsal bone in his foot in a match against Tottenham Hotspur. He underwent surgery to place a pin in the bone, to help speed the healing process. He was expected to be out of action until late March,[19] but the healing process did not go as hoped and on March 24 he underwent a second, minor, operation. Owen then stated that he should be fit for the final few weeks of the season with Newcastle.[20] His return to action finally came against Birmingham City on April 29 when he came off the substitutes' bench in the 62nd minute. After the match Owen stated that he was "not 100% happy" with his foot.[21] He underwent a further x-ray and made himself unavailable for Newcastle's final game of the season. is the 365th day of the year (366th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

A damaged anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, sustained in the first minute of the group match against Sweden at the 2006 World Cup, kept Owen out of regular football for nearly a year, until April 2007. Owen's injury fanned the "club or country" dispute between clubs and the international authorities, as the Football Association's insurance policy would not fully reimburse Newcastle United for Owen's salary of over £120,000 a week, or the costs of employing another player to cover for him; Newcastle chairman Freddy Shepherd threatened to sue the FA for compensation.

On 9 May 2007, Newcastle's chairman Freddy Shepherd reacted angrily to reports that Owen could move on to another club at the end of the 2006–07 season, due to a release clause in his contract. A report in The Times newspaper suggested Owen could be available for less than £10m and could be a target for the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal. Despite these reports, Shepherd warned Owen "to show some loyalty" and warned him that "none of the big four clubs want him."[26] However, in a video posted on YouTube, a group of Liverpool fans asked Shepherd if they could re-sign Owen, he responded by saying that he would "carry Owen back to Liverpool" himself.[27] Shepherd also stated his dislike of Owen's agent but praised Owen as a "good lad".[28] This led many to believe that Owen would exercise his right to leave if the £9m valuation was matched.[27] On 10 June 2007, Owen's new manager at Newcastle, Sam Allardyce, confirmed the existence of the release clause in Owen's contract and admitted he feared that the club would be powerless to prevent Owen from leaving.[29] However on 12 July 2007 Owen committed his immediate future to Newcastle United, stating: "I believe that these can be good times to be at Newcastle, which is why I am more than happy to be here."[30] is the 129th day of the year (130th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

International career

Owen had a highly successful record at Youth and Under-21 international level, although he was only briefly a member of the England Under-21 team (netting on his only appearance in a win over Greece Under-21 at Carrow Road) before he made his début for the senior team in a 2–0 friendly loss to Chile on February 11, 1998. Playing in this game made Owen the youngest player to represent England in the whole of the 20th century at 18 years and 59 days of age.[41] First International England U-21 0-0 Wales U-21 (Molineux, Wolverhampton; December 15, 1976) Biggest win England U-21 8-1 Finland U-21 (Boothferry Park, Hull; October 12, 1977) Biggest defeat Romania U-21 4-0 England U-21 (PloieÅŸti, Romania; October 14, 1980) & England U-21...

Owen's youthful enthusiasm, pace and talent made him a popular player across the country,[42] and many fans were keen for him to be made a regular player for the team ahead of that year's World Cup. His first goal for England, against Morocco in another friendly game prior to the tournament further enhanced his reputation.[43] The goal also made him the youngest ever player to have scored for England,[44] until his record was surpassed by Wayne Rooney in 2003. The 1998 Football World Cup was held in France by the FIFA decision in July 1992. ... This article or section does not adequately cite its references or sources. ...


Although he was selected for the World Cup squad by manager Glenn Hoddle, he was left on the bench as a substitute in the first two games. However, his substitute appearance in the second game, a 2–1 defeat to Romania, saw him score a goal and hit the post with another shot, almost salvaging a point from the game.[45] After that, Hoddle played him from the start, and in England's second round match against Argentina he scored a sensational individual goal, voted by many as the goal of the tournament and bringing him to the attention of the world football scene.[46] Glenn Hoddle (born October 27, 1957 in Hayes, London) is a football manager and former player for Tottenham Hotspur and England. ...


England drew that match and went out of the tournament on penalties, but Owen had sealed his place as an England choice and his popularity in the country had increased greatly. At the end of the year, he won a public vote to be elected winner of the prestigious BBC Sports Personality of the Year title, the award's youngest-ever recipient.[47] The BBC Sports Personality of the Year award is given to one sportsman or sportswoman, usually British, every year. ...


He has since played for England in Euro 2000, the 2002 World Cup and Euro 2004, scoring goals in all three tournaments. This makes him the only player to ever have scored in four major tournaments for England.[48] He also became one of only a handful of England players to appear in three World Cup tournaments when he played at the 2006 FIFA World Cup, although he did not score and was injured in the final group game.

After playing only 51 seconds of his third appearance of the tournament, and 80th cap, in the 2006 World Cup against Sweden, Owen badly twisted his left knee and was forced to leave the match on a stretcher.[51] A scan of the injury on 21 June confirmed that Owen had torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee, and was sent home, no longer able to play in the tournament.[52] is the 172nd day of the year (173rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Owen underwent successful reconstruction surgery, carried out by Dr. Richard Steadman, on 6 September 2006.[53] The injury sidelined him until April 2007, meaning he missed England's first six matches in qualifying for Euro 2008. He returned for the England B game against Albania,[54] and was named in the full squad for the games against Brazil and Estonia,[55] with Owen stating "I feel sharp and, if given the chance, I feel confident when in front of goal."[56] He played in both matches and scored against Estonia, breaking Gary Lineker's record for most goals in competitive internationals for England.[57] Owen's latest international efforts include a brace for England in a 3–0 win over Russia on 12 September 2007.[58].

As of December 2007, Owen has never gone more than four international games in a row without scoring a goal. Owen's future as first choice striker for England is uncertain however, due to competition from Wayne Rooney and fast-developing Theo Walcott amongst others. Owen's lack of action in Fabio Capello's first two England friendlies and Capello's selection of a single striker 4-5-1 formation also support the view that Owen's international opportunities may in future be limited[60].

Hunky Male Celebs: Michael Owen (0 words)
Michael Owen was born to Janette and Terry Owen in the Countess of Chester Hospital, Cheshire.
Michael was quite a bit younger than most, and very much smaller, but he was soon showing off his "flair" and started in most games.
Owen also bought an entire street for his extended family (Austen Close, Ewloe), which is in an area close to where he used to live, and also went to school nearby at Hawarden High School.
Michael Owen (0 words)
Owen's big-time heroics continued when he scored twice in the final seven minutes as Liverpool came back from the dead to beat Arsenal 2-1 in the FA Cup final at the Millennium Stadium.
Owen may have been tentatively on the comeback trail, but he was rapidly becoming the forgotten man of Anfield.
Owen is therefore ruled out of England's friendly against Hungary in Budapest on April 28 and Euro 2000 qualifiers at home to Sweden on June 5 and away against Bulgaria on June 9.
