Eagles boss: Michael Owen could have overtaken Charlton record

CRYSTAL Palace boss Ian Holloway says Michael Owen would have surely become England's all-time leading goalscorer if it hadn't been for injuries.
In his exclusive Croydon Advertiser column tomorrow, he touches on Owen's career and believes the striker has been a great ambassador for the national game.
"His finishing was quite exceptional and he was a predatory number nine who has done his country, his team-mates and himself very proud," Holloway told Advertiser Sport.
"Barring injuries, I think he could have easily overtaken Sir Bobby Charlton's goalscoring record for England.
"He's probably wealthy enough not go to work now - I'm sure he's clever enough to keep busy."
For Holloway's thoughts in full on Owen, the sacking of Michael Appleton, social networking site Twitter and last Sunday's game at Brighton, do not miss tomorrow's Croydon Advertiser.
