A deluded Michael Owen has said that Luis Suarez joining Arsenal would be a surprise as it would not help the striker in any way. He reckons that Liverpool are a bigger club than Arsenal and questions if we can hope to win anything next season. We have 10 times the chance of winning something than Liverpool do mate, especially if we do sign Suarez.
Owen spoke to the BBC and said, “I’d be very surprised if he were to move to Arsenal. Madrid or Barcelona would make more sense. I’m struggling to understand why he would leave and stay in England with Liverpool being the stature they are.”
Liverpool have about the same stature as Fulham these days so he clearly doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Does he really think Suarez is concerned about what a club has done in the past rather than which club has the better chance of winning things?
He continued to say “From Suarez’s point of view you can understand him if he wants to reach the absolute pinnacle of the game – that’s playing in the Champions League. Liverpool are obviously not in that at the moment.”
He then stuck the boot in further and said “Truthfully, can you really see Arsenal winning the Champions League next season or going into the later stages? Unless they buy a few good players then I can’t.”
I agree with Owen on the point that we need to buy some new players to do this, but anything is possible. You cannot simply write off Arsenal for anything especially now when the squad seems to be playing so well. Maybe somebody should remind Owen that Arsenal were only denied a quarter-final place last season by the eventual winners, Bayern Munich, and only on goal difference.
He is crazy to think that Liverpool are in any way bigger than Arsenal. Perhaps you could have said that four years ago but not now. They are slipping further away from the top and the owners are now apparently trying to sell the club after giving up on their plan to get back to the top.
Liverpool aren’t even in the Europa League next season so how is no European football better than a great chance of reaching the last 16 of the Champions League? Owen knows that Liverpool are lost without Suarez and is trying to convince him to stay to stop the inevitable doom of his former club.
