 Just to answer some of your tweets. Prefer playing less often in a top team than every game in a poor team. Been there a didn't enjoy it,

 Bolton’s always a tough place to come, we created enough chances and we dominated for most of the game, I’m just disappointed to only come away with a point. It's nice to score goals but it's a bitter disappointment not to get the three points. They are all a bit frustrated in the dressing room but Bolton's a difficult place to go. We've got to focus on our next game but when you don’t capitalise fully it’s a disappointment. But I’m sure we'll bounce back.

 It’s nice to have played a couple of games. I felt really good in Ireland [for the friendly against an Airtricity League XI] and not so sharp at Wembley [the Community Shield against Chelsea). It’s like that when you’re coming back, in some training sessions you feel absolutely great and then in others you feel heavy legged. I was at Carrington for most of the summer, recovering from the injury. I feel fine, fit and ready to go.

 It's good for the club. Gone are the days when you are selfish about your football. The club employ you to benefit them and do what is best for them so whenever you’re called upon you are ready.

 The fans are really excited about the new signings, particularly Javier. He looks really sharp in training and in games. It is difficult to come from another country with different food and different weather, particularly at the turn of the year in England when it’s freezing cold every day. It will be interesting to see how Javier settles in, but so far so good.

 The hardest thing from my view is not playing certain games and then all of a sudden being called up and you are meant to be ready. You can do lots of work in the gym, but until you play you don't benefit from those movement patterns. I felt good in pre-season in Ireland, but not so sharp at Wembley. 
— Michael Owen admitting that it is hard to maintain fitness if he is not part of the first squad / August 22, 2010
 I'm 30 now and understand I won't play every game. I've had a lot of injuries and don't have the pace I once had. But life evolves. I've changed my style, I'm a different type of player now and, because of that, I reckon I've still got four or five years at the top. And I much prefer that to be at United, where I train every day with some of the world's top players. Where I work every day with arguably the best manager who's ever lived. Where I play in front of such great fans and in an amazing stadium such as Old Trafford. And I'm really happy I now live back at home after having been away for five years.
