Soccer crock, Owen Haregreaves is joining Man City as their "crock of the flock" and will play the same role as Michael Owen and Rio Ferdinand do at Man Utd.
Modern day soccer is all a bit of a circus anyway so clubs are starting to invest money on "crocks" instead of misfits because there has been too much money wasted on misfits, ask Dalglish or Kevin Keegan, remember they've bought plenty of them. It seems it's all an insurance thing (?).
United fans have promised Owen (not Michael) that if he returns with City to play against United and dare plays well, scores a goal or does a back-heel flick a la ex United hero, Denis Law, they will give him a real "knee job" IRA style.
And if City win the title with Owen, Utd hardcore fan have promised to give him a real double whammy knee job, meaning both knees, which will certainly put him out forever.
Meanwhile Sir Alex is pondering a move for City bad-boy and enfant terriblé, Balotelli. Sir Alex knows how to turn bad-boys into legends, Mon Dieu! And he feels Balotelli would compliment his midfield perfectly.
Not a bad swap; a crock for a flop!
