Fowler For Owen?

Last updated : 18 April 2006 By Footy Mad - Editor
It has been suggested Robbie Fowler could be used as bait to tempt Newcastle to part with their England international, but that seems well off the mark. After all, Fowler is out of contract next month and can sign for whoever he wants to sign for.

But if Owen DOES return to Anfield, Fowler WILL be on his way.

Fowler scored the winner at Blackburn on Sunday afternoon - but still does not know if he will be at the club next season.
He admitted: "People keep on asking me, but I'm as much in the dark as everyone else - and all I can do is score goals.
"I've not finished that many games. But it's the manager's prerogative - he's got a decision to make, and if he doesn't think I'm fit enough it's up to him."

His manager Rafa Benitez added: "If he continues scoring goals it will be easy.
"He's working hard because he loves Liverpool. He knows my ideas and he will continue working.
"If I say 'no' it will be difficult for me - but he would understand. If I say 'yes' if he continues scoring goals it will be easier for me, him and the fans."
