Mercurial little goal machine for the reds. Disappointed when he signed for the other reds over in Manchester. Good book though Michael.

Owen has been my idol throughout my childhood until now. I found it really interesting reading into his life, which is often not expressed much in the media.
A tad slow and boring in parts, but overall loved reading about my hero

Michael Owen is a very humble, shy amazing soccer player who loves the game and his family more than anything. I really enjoying reading about his life and how he got to where he is today!:)

"We can look each other in the eye and know we're together for all the right reasons."
I like this person, and the way he expresses himself and his emotion.

Although Michael Owen was my idol growing up, reading this I found that the writing inspired boredom and an interesting life was just simmered down.

Hayward helps Owen write in an entertaining way, and sheds a spotlight onto the mind of Owen the striker, whose entire mindset revolves around anticipating mistakes defenders might make.

Esperé más. Está bien, creo que más detallado que Pirlo, pero esperé mayor detalle en Real Madrid y no pude conocer los motivos para ir a ManU y Stoke. Interesante perspectiva en algunos pasajes.
