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.

He has two Ukrainian defenders ahead of him and Markus Rosenberg to his left. As one, the pub I watched the game in cried ‘give it’. A simple throughball would split the central defensive pairing in two and set the striker free to bear down on goal.
