I didn't want to be known as the man who shot Bambi.
It is not about money. It is about a player thinking he is bigger than this club.
Newcastle girls are all dogs. England is full of them.
There is not much more we can do. We are waiting to hear from Owen and his adviser.
There'll be no hiding behind excuses.
We promised our supporters that we would sign a top-class striker and we have exceeded every expectation by signing Michael from Real Madrid on a four-year contract.
[Said Owen:] I am aware of what has been said and ... ... The statement says everything and we are not going to elaborate on it.
No, of course not, ... and I don't think there is any manager in this country who would not want Michael Owen.
Well let me tell you that no individual, be it the chairman, the manager or a player is bigger than Newcastle United even if that player is a multi-millionaire.
Before yesterday afternoon there would have been no public action taken against Craig Bellamy and everything was going to be handled internally.
Scott has been our main target for a while and we are delighted that he has chosen to join us.
He is our first signing of the summer and will be a valuable addition to our squad. He is still young but has a lot of experience and we welcome him to Newcastle.
We've done everything possible to get this game on.
We have spoken with the player and he has confirmed he is happy at Newcastle United.
That's going to happen sooner rather than later.
I must have amnesia as I can't remember sending a text message to Mr Eriksson.
I must have amnesia as I can't remember sending a text message to Mr. Eriksson. I don't even have his number so I'd love to see this message. All I can say is that I'd like to wish Mr. Eriksson well with England in the summer, and good luck for whatever he chooses to do after that.
