He looks like a footballer

"He looks like a footballer"

Owen on himself looking the stats of this version of his card

"That shot was completely unstoppable, but the keeper’s got to do better for me"

”I doubt the other team are going to get anything out of this game.”

I want to be honest with you, I'm a poor guy.

I did not have 550 k coins to get his medium version.

I did not have enough swaps to get his Prime version (I spend them for Gerred by the way).

I cannot afford Dalglish, or Barnes, or other Liverpool legends that I want for my squad. So, here we are, buying the 86 version of Michael owen, the nightmare for anyone made the guaranteed Base Icon...Image...opening the pack... it's whiteeeee... England.... is Ferdinanddddd.... nope. Owen. The slow version of Owen. The bin version of Owen.... or not?

45 games and 52 goals after I can say no. Ok, I cannot say that you have to go out on your balcony naked and scream that you find him in a pack, but seriously this guy performs well as a pure striker. I slapped a Hunter chem style that boosts his pace enogh to outrun most of the defenders, and actually this is what happens: he's not quick as Manè or similar but, all in all, is not bad.

And the question is: can he scores? Yes, he can. Most of the goals comes after counters, in 1vs1 situation, or after some ridicoulous rebounds (thank you EA for giving us this flipper game) but the point is that he scores. Pair him with a second striker that can do the "dirty" job, holding the ball enough to launch Owen into the box, and you will have a perfoming attack.

Actually he cannot do something more than score goals, but after all, as the good Micheal remeber to us:

“Whichever team scores more goals usually wins.”

That's enough.

One mission: score goals. Mission accomplished.

Everithing else that is not put the ball on the back of the net.
