In the past this site has given Michael Owen a fair amount of stick for him generally being considered an international player rather than a club man. However one player who has seemingly taken this mantle on now Owen is back playing for Newcastle is Emre. With his future at Newcastle already in doubt the sizeable schemer has now suffered an ankle injury whilst away with Turkey, again taking the piss out of his £60k a week paymasters.
This is the second time already that Emre has managed to haul himself off the treatment table when the national team come calling, having already managed it and suffered a recurrence of his hamstring injury. Personally I don`t think Big Sam is too bothered as I don`t think the Turk has any place at Newcastle under the new regime. However it`s frustrating for us that contribute to his wages to see him quite obviously dicking the club about.
