Another Gutless Display From Toon 'Captain Marvel'!

The Newcastle manager continues to defend a player who was a disgrace last night.

It was 30-odds minutes before many Toon fans realised he was on the pitch!

And this is supposed to be the man who will lead us away from relegation.

He should be stripped of the armband, and personally I'd stick him on the bench, because he is making it perfectly plain he is counting down the matches to ending his association with our club.

Forget his age, I'd have been happy to see Shearer himself replace the former England international.

On this, and his performances all season, Owen can forget about pulling on an England shirt again.

He has cost our club more than £40m in transfer and wages, and given us very little in return.

Alan Shearer leapt: "I would say everyone's entitled to their opinion but we have got to continue to create chances for him (Owen).

"He had one tonight that he would expect himself to put away - so would Oba, so would big Mark - but, if we continue to create, one of them will go in.

"We know, if we keep on, he will get one. Obviously, we would have loved it tonight.

"It didn't come, so we will look to the next game."
