David Beckham, Michael Owen and Alan Shearer celebrate for England at France '98
...and now we're left with Alan Shearer, Michael Owen and Jamie Redknapp...
Please do not replace Neville with Michael Owen, Alan Shearer, Martin Keown or Irish Andy Townsend. Please!

England captain Alan Shearer celebrates with David Beckham and Michael Owen after scoring against Argentina, 1998.
Michael Owen small but fast. Peter Crouch tall great header. Kevin Phillips maybe... I think Harry Kane is similar like Alan Shearer.
I don't care how many caps Rooney gets! He will never be better than Alan Shearer or Michael Owen at their prime! Even Sheringham or Cole :D
Wayne Rooney. 100 caps and accomplished precisely nothing. England career pales in comparison to Michael Owen and Alan Shearer
I wish pundits like Alan Shearer, Andy Townsend & Michael Owen still played, just so we wouldn't have to listen to them ramble on.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger surprised by Danny Welbeck's speed, skill and finishing ability Arsene Wenger says Danny Welbeck surpassed even the Frenchman's expectations with hat-trick against Galatasary in the Champions League . By Jeremy Wilson, at the Emirates Stadium Arsène Wenger admitted that he had not appreciated that Danny Welbeck was a good finisher or so adept technically even after spending £16 million on making him the most expensive centre-forward in Arsenal's history. Welbeck followed Michael Owen, Alan Shearer, Wayne Rooney, Mike Newell and Andy Cole to become only the sixth English player to score a Champions League hat-trick. Asked what he had learnt about Welbeck in the past month, Wenger said: “I’ve learnt he’s a good finisher. Technically he’s very sound. That was a surprise. He’s technically clean and that he’s a good passer of the ball. “Honestly, I didn’t know he was so quick. I knew he was quick but he can be electric when he starts. He showed that instinct of . ...

Michael Owen, John Barnes (as in Wallace?) Bryan Robson, Kevin Keegan, Alan Shearer (as in Hancock ) sorry!!
Michael Owen started England's opening game of the 1998 World Cup on the bench as manager Glenn Hoddle opted for a front two of Teddy Sheringham and Alan Shearer against Tunisia. But after coming on to score and hit the post in the 2-1 defeat by Romania in the next game, the 18-year-old Liverpool striker was not to be denied his starting place. Owen's fantastic solo strike against Argentina, after he won the penalty for England's first goal of the game, ensured that when England departed on penalties he was immediately linked with big-money moves to Juventus and Real Madrid.
You look at the great England strikers we've had in recent time; Gazza, Gary Lineker, Alan Shearer, Ian Wright, Teddy Sheringham, Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler, Andy Cole ect and that's just off the top of my head. Now look.
World Cup Countdown (with a horse racing twist today in honor of the Belmont) -- Fact No. 6: A number of prominent footballers including Sir Alex, Wayne Rooney, Michael Owen, Harry Redknapp, Steve Mcmanaman, Paul Scholes and Alan Shearer own racehorses. Owen's most significant victory might have come when his horse, Brown Panther, won the King George V Stakes at Ascot in 2011. Rooney's namesake Switcharooney, meanwhile, failed to win a single race in a disappointing career. In 1978, the last time a horse captured the Triple Crown, Argentina won the World Cup with a thrilling 3-1 extra time win over Netherlands. Before the match, Holland accused Argentina of employing stalling tactics to delay the start in an effort to rile up the home crowd. In any event, the Dutch nearly took the lead in stoppage time when Rob Resenbrink's shot beat the Argentine keeper but caromed off the post. Afterward, Holland skipped the awards ceremony in protest. Argentina is currently a 4-1 second choice behind Brazil to win the ...
Top 10 World Cup games of all time With Brazil 2014 just around the corner, Goal runs down the 10 greatest World Cup finals' games in history ARGENTINA* 2-2 ENGLAND - 1998 SECOND ROUND There haven’t been too many memorable World Cup games over the past three or four editions, but this was certainly one. The build-up to the match was, inevitably, dominated by talk of England gaining revenge for the 1986 quarter final and Diego Maradona’s Hand of God. Within 16 minutes there had already been three goals. Gabriel Batistuta’s penalty put Argentina in the lead, but Alan Shearer equalised from the spot after a suspicious Michael Owen fall. The 18-year-old then lit up the tournament with a brilliant solo goal, but Argentina restored parity with another fantastic strike by Javier Zanetti. David Beckham was sent off in the second half for kicking out at Diego Simeone, Sol Campbell had a goal disallowed for a Shearer foul on goalkeeper Carlos Roa, and the final outcome was penalties. As at Italia ’90 eight ...
Sol Campbell . What a *** . " If I were white I`d have been England captain for more than ten years". The fact is he won 73 caps for England - 3 of which he captained the side. The list of players who captained the side when he played is as follows: David Platt, Tony Adams, Alan Shearer, Paul Ince (also black ), Stuart Pearce, David Seaman, Martin Keown, David Beckham, Michael Owen, Steven Gerrard and John Terry.Every single one of these players was infinitely more qualified than Mr.Campbell to captain the national side and for him to suggest otherwise is a grave insult to his fellow professionals. It also sets back the kick it out campaign who are trying to address more serious racial issues. A character aligned to ability makes a captain Mr. Campbell and signing for Notts County and quitting after a single defeat shows exactly what you were made of. Now grow up and be thankful that a ten a penny centre half such as yourself even got to make a living at the game !!!

From the Mag feck off sick note Michael Owen Attacks Newcastle Fans Yet Again 6 hours ago by Dean Wilkins Michael Owen attacks Newcastle fans yet again today and his ignorance is breathtaking. The only other alternative is that he is cynically misrepresenting the truth as his greed as always knows no bounds. Clearly Owen is no longer on speaking terms with Alan Shearer, as a quick call to his ex-Newcastle and England team-mate would have put him right, with the Geordie legend having been active this week in commenting knowledgeably about United’s problems. Instead this Michael Owen rubbish below, has appeared this morning, with Owen pushing the line of what have Newcastle fans got to complain about and it is the supporters who create most of the problems and instability at St.James’ Park with expectations of challenging for the title when we win a few matches. You can read the full piece at the Telegraph but here are some of the edited ‘highlights’, make your own mind up… michael owen attacks ne ...

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger isn't a fan of Match of The Day, a fact Gary Lineker apparently now acknowledges. Keep writing Arsenal off, and they keep winning. It might actually be good for the Gunners. As well as Michael Owen saying at the weekend the Gunners would finish 5th, Match of The Day pundit Alan Shearer was categorical that they would not win the title. Arsene Wenger was not impressed. He told The Mirror ahead of the Hull game: "Sometimes I watch it (Match of The Day), sometimes not. Sometimes it’s just someone saying their opinion without an argument on something. That can make sense. But if it’s something based on hate or love, or just gut feeling then I just say, ‘Okay, it’s an opinion - he might be right, he might be wrong. Often, he [the pundit] doesn’t sustain his opinion by some work he has done to support that argument." However with a midweek Match of The Day before us, Gary Lineker did not miss an opportunity to have his say. Lineker: "Four points clear Arsenal continue to def ...
A weekend treat for all you England Football fans a new article by star writer Tom "Too sweet" Pitt Rashid... Overpaid. Egotistical. Uninterested. Unpatriotic. These are a few of the accusations regularly levelled en masse at the English national football team. The tipping point? The 2010 World Cup. England, with a spinal cord of world class talent, were expected to deliver. You know what happened next and you know whodunit too. Yet again, we crashed out of major tournament prematurely. Over the last 20 years England have had great teams. Think of the players we’ve had: Paul Gascoigne, Alan Shearer, Paul Scholes, Gary Linekar, Steven Gerrard, Ashley Cole, David Platt, Wayne Rooney, John Barnes, Rio Ferdinand, Frank Lampard, Gary Neville, Tony Adams, Sol Campbell. It goes on. On top of that, think of the players the England team never got the best of: Matt Le Tissier, Robbie Fowler, Steve Mcmanaman, Andy Cole, Ian Wright… Michael Owen? Yet still, nothing to show for it. The focal point of the debate co ...
Michael and Alan were at as a gambling culture took hold that saw players bet up to £30,000 per hand on the team bus, according to a former star. Former striker Michael made the revelations about the culture of gambling at the club in court, where he was giving evidence at a drugs trial involving his friend John Somerville. Chopra, now 29 and playing for explained that he had lost vast amounts of money gambling - and that his addiction started when he was sucked in to the high stakes games as a young star after making his debut for the club as a teenager. "I will just say it, I have probably lost about £2m," Chopra told Newcastle Crown Court. "I started gambling when I was 17 when I first broke through with Newcastle. I was travelling with the first team and there was a lot of gambling on the bus and I got involved. ”The stars at that time were Alan Shearer, Kieron Dyer, Titus Bramble, Craig Bellamy – big names. Michael Owen joined about four years later. "You were talking thousands being gambled, a ...

Michael Owen, Alan Shearer and Gary Lineker on Match of The Day tonight. What have we done to deserve this cruel & unusual punishment?
Theiry Henry, Alan Shearer, Michael Owen... "Players that have scored over 100 League goals?"
The English media for football is quite similar to the Indian media for cricket. One good performance and they see their team as world beaters. One average or below average performance in the next game and they are lower than the likes of Armenia. One goal or an assist and the player is the next Alan Shearer or the next man to fulfill the prophecy that was painful left unfulfilled by Michael Owen whom I to this date believe was the chosen one for English Football but was just too tragically unlucky. 2 bad games and that same player is pulled down from the pedestal and is fed to the dogs. Several players have been victims of this hero worship trend, Joe Hart being the latest victim. When you prematurely brand a player world class he feels he's peaked and doesn't need to improve anymore. He stops striving to get better. In reality there are only 3 kinds of world class players. 1- those who truly are world class... Zidane, Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos, Ronaldinho, Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. 2- those who are abo ...

Stars come out for the 'Gary Speed Charity Golf Day' in aid of Console. Some of the biggest names in football joined forces at Padeswood & Buckley Golf Club in Wales for a charity event in memory of late Wales great Gary Speed. Current Wales National team manager Chris Coleman was joined by more than 20 former players – including Mark Hughes, Dean Saunders, Ian St John, Gordan Strachan, Michael Owen and Alan Shearer – for the Gary Speed Charity Golf Day. They were joined by Gary’s parents Roger and Carol, and his family and friends to raise money for Console, in particular for the development of our Services in the UK. Gary's mother Carol said it was the sort of event Gary would have enjoyed, "He loved his golf, he loved football more but he loved his golf. And if the money raised today stops another family going through what we've been through it'll all be worth it." All the team in Console would like to express our heartfelt thanks to the Speed family and all who supported this memorable and touch ...
3 in 4 Newcastle Fans Believe Mike Ashley Won’t Spend Big In Transfer Market Yesterday we asked the following question; ‘Do You Think NUFC’s Record Transfer Fee Of £16m (Michael Owen) Will Ever Be Beaten By Mike Ashley?’ This was some of the background we gave to asking the fans their view on this particular question; However, when West Ham snap up Carroll at a price that probably exceeded the Owen deal and clubs such as Swansea, Southampton, Norwich and others are actively looking to pay £10m or more for players then surely the writing is on the wall if you want to compete. Yes we hope that Graham Carr can keep up his impressive strike rate but especially with strikers there comes a time when you have to pay the price on the ticket if you want to compete. So do you think that Mike Ashley will ever pay more than £16m for a player? When answering I think two things should be kept in mind; how long you guess he might be sticking around and then also how ambitious do you think Newcastle’s owner ...
Former Newcastle striker Michael Owen has insisted Alan Shearer was not to blame for the club's relegation in 2009. -SZ
This England team is worse than Sri Lanka Football Team! What are players like Rooney, Glen Johnson, Jagielka, Milner and countless other worthless players doing in a team which once had David Beckham, Michael Owen, Alan Shearer, Steven Gerrard and Gary Linekar!!! SHAME!
15 odd years ago, think of the strikers at England's disposal. Alan Shearer, Ian Wright, Matt Le Tissier, Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen, Teddy Sheringham, Andy Cole, Les Ferdinand and Paul Gascoigne. Now look. Some people are actually calling for Grant Holt to get a call-up... Mostly people from Norwich, it must be said. - Ed

Soccer legend Pele's '100 best' soccer stars Top man: Beckham is among Pele's greatest 100 players Seven England stars have been named by Pele in his list of the 100 greatest living footballers in the world. Modern heroes like David Beckham, Alan Shearer and Michael Owen are preferred to Sir Geoff Hurst, the man whose hat-trick against West Germany ensured England's World Cup triumph. They join former stars Gary Lineker, Kevin Keegan, Bobby Charlton and Gordon Banks as "the best, most outstanding, creative players of their generation". More than 20 of those in the list, revealed by world governing body Fifa today, have played or are playing in the Premiership. Four Arsenal stars, Dennis Bergkamp, Thierry Henry, Robert Pires and Patrick Vieira are named, as are three of Chelsea's foreign brigade in Hernan Crespo, Juan Sebastian Veron and Marcel Desailly. Manchester United's Roy Keane and Ruud Van Nistelrooy are also included. But, in keeping with the diplomatic role he has adopted as an international ambas ...

Rooney's high five honour Wayne Rooney marked his first competitive match as England captain by firing his way into the national team's top five goalscorers of all time. The Manchester United forward entered the World Cup qualifying game against San Marino on 29 goals but a first-half penalty and a second-half strike enabled him to leapfrog a famous trio - Tom Finney, Nat Lofthouse and Alan Shearer - and move into fifth place with 31. The only men now above him are Michael Owen (40), Jimmy Greaves (44), Gary Lineker (48) and United legend Sir Bobby Charlton (49). "Obviously it's a great honour for me, there are some great players there," Rooney told ITV Sport. "To be in England's top five goalscorers of all time is something I'm extremely proud of. Hopefully there are many more goals to come. I'm still only 26, I've got a long way to go, so hopefully I can score a lot more." England won 5-0 thanks to Rooney's double, a brace from Danny Welbeck and a final flourish from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, but some pu ...
