SENSATIONAL BREAKING NEWS EMERGED TONIGHT TRIGGERED BY THE MANAGERIAL ROLE AT NEWCASTLE UNITED BEING HANDED TO TOON LEGEND ALAN SHEARER.Shearer has decided to clear out the dead wood and released Michael Owen with IMMEDIATE EFFECT.
This means Owen is available to sign for a new club immediately, and he specifically told his agent he wanted to fulfill his ambition of playing for a London club. Premier League rules prevent him playing for another top flight team in the current season, so he has dropped into the Football League and was put in touch with Orient chairman Barry Hearn by mutual friend Jack Charlton.
Owen will wear the shirt number 34 and goes into the squad for Saturdays game at Cheltenham, an area which holds memories for Owen, as he once lost half a million quid on a horse during the Cheltenham Festival.
Lets hope for Orients sake he has better luck on Saturday
It is thought Michaels wages will be funded personally by new chairman elect David Beckham.
The press conference to confirm this breaking news will take place at 10.45am on Wednesday April 1st.
Up the O’s!!!
