Michael Owen’s arrival at Stoke is intriguing for many reasons. It is further evidence that Tony Pulis, that canny operator, is changing his team’s style. It is confirmation of Stoke’s status as an established top-flight club, and raises the prospect of Owen enjoying an Indian summer to a career that once promised to be among the game’s most glittering but has long been in sad decline.
