Michael Owen fears that the style of football in the Premiership may make goalscoring tough for him this season.

What are your thoughts on Owen's comments? Do you think the Premiership has changed that much in the season he has been away?

Obviously you'll be happy with his performance yesterday, and even though he says it'll be tough, I'm sure he'll still get at least 15 goals, if not more, this season...

As long as he get's the supply line he'll score plenty, his movement off the ball yesterday was brilliant.

Teams are scared to lose now, due to Arsenal and Chelsea losing hardly any number of games. Wenger was saying teams are too defensive now and I agree.

Arsenal went unbeaten for so long due to their attacking football, Chelsea are more defensive. I wonder how Keegan's team would fair in today's league?

In the other planet where he sought so much glory, is where he should have remained. He now sees fault with quality of football in the league than poor his form. Thank god he didn't turn up for LFC.

Poor form? What poor form? 1 goal in 2 games? IS that really poor form?

Right, I'm sure the majority of L'pool fans were ecstatic when he didn't sign with them.

If you're going to engage in bluster, puhleeeze at least make it believable.

I could not be happier to have him and when we 1) acquired Emre and Luque, 2)dumped (sorry, "sold") Jenas and 3) got Nobby back it was the most solid bit of signing in a transfer window that I've seen in a long time, by anyone in the EPL. Now if we can just get some desperate sucker to take Dyer off our hands for a few million quid things will be close to settled.

Owen is right. Pretty much all the premiership matches I've seen this term have been dull, dull, dull. There's so much money to lose by getting relegated that everyone is too frightened. In truth there's very little football being played. Have you seen Bolton?

Best league in the world? I think not.

Is this just Michael Owen getting his defence in first, in case he doesn't score many goals?

Seems concerning to me that he was barely getting a game at Real Madrid, Liverpool didn't want him back and the only other team that did was Newcastle. If he is that good why did more teams not chase him?

Michael Owen - brilliant footballer or just good in the box?

Michael Owen averages a goal every other game. FACT! If that isn't worth investing in I don't know what is. Every bangs on about Defoe being better but he has never done it consistently like Owen. Rooney is a better all-round player than Owen but he will never score as many goals. There is no better English goal scorer than the "over-rated midget". Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

You're missing the point. I think most people are; the premiership is till exciting at times. It was never a thrill a game, and goals are often like buses. (No goals come one match, then another game ends 3-3 etc.)

I think Alan Hansen was right in his column on this site. He said "Chelsea are not dull and it is time people stopped being cynical and critical".

I'm enjoying this season, there have been better starts to the season, but this is by no means the worse.

Ps. Owen is as good as anyone at scoring goals in the premiership, Newcastle are lucky..

Poor Form?? Hasn't he just equalled the number number of goals the entire Liverpool team have scored so far in the premiership this season. Sounds like sour grapes to me!!

Owen,

is absolute magic, Liverpool DID want Owen just could'nt afford him and Benetiz did'nt want to look stupid signing him again.

He is a clinical finisher of the ball and we will make him a legend, when the toon have a full squad all the klnockers will eat their words. I am not saying we are brilliant but will definately get a euro spot, hopefully at the expense of Middlesboro.
