    He’s bad, is there any other English icon you could afford?

    I currently use him alongside Rooney, in fact I like Owen type of players always make runs and I’m not a skiller so fantastic for me, one touch shoot...He also link any other midfielder if you need chem.

    I have prime Owen and Rooney as my front 2. Absolutely lethal.

    Sounds like worth giving a whirl and if good enough can upgrade

    How good is prime Owen? Wondering if I wait and see what happens Friday or pull the trigger now, would be up top with Rooney and Barnes and Rashford on the wings
  • Sadly base Owen has worse stats than Werner, Rash, sif Wilson.... he shouldn't but he does. The m/m workrate also makes him not make the runs that bloody Michael Owen should be making. Prime and mid card much better

    Along with @afc4life_1 I also have Prime Owen with EoE Rooney... unreal combination!

    Medium/Medium work rate for Owen has no negative effect. Got a Hunter on him so 99 Speed and 99 Acceleration. 99 positioning, 99 finishing and 91 shot power.

    Can't you do the SBC for the amount you have to spend? 2×85s and I think an 82 and 84 but can't remember.

    The question was sort of directed at @Prettyfly

    This is the answer. PIM Owen is significantly better than the Prime (even though the stats don't suggest it)

    Barnes 86 is a really decent cm! I got him in swaps. Big body, quick with a shadow, decent passing, shooting and dribbling
