The hype surrounding England`s Michael Owen`s latest comeback seems to have hit the buffers after Glenn Roeder decided not to include him in the squad for tonight`s reserve game against the Burra. With Shola included it looks like the big man will be the first to make it back into action. There don`t seem to be any quotes from the club so far about this latest turn of events, with news of a close-doors friendly quickly disappearing into the ether as well.
