As the first half of the FA Cup third round between Man Utd and Sheffield United dragged on, football fans struggled to decide what is worse: United’s attacking play or Michael Owen’s commentary.
The BT Sport pundit is renowned for his boring commentary, and he truly lived up to his reputation during the goalless first half of the game.
The fact that Owen’s commentary was complemented by United’s atrocious attacking display against a League One side was too much to take for some football fans.
I think I preferred it when Michael Owen was tweeting photos of his dogs bollocks than commentating.

Michael Owen grates. From minute one he’s been a doom merchant. He’s not commentating, he’s whining.

To be fair, I’d rather listen to Michael Owen talk about drizzle than watch this United team pass the ball sideways for 90 minutes.

Michael Owen: “Man Utd have to find way of penetrating, stretching the back four. Then you probe & find the holes.” pic.twitter.com/3G14dOPVWG

Michael Owen: “If there’s a bit of rain about, it makes the surface wet.” Cheers for that insight, Michael..

Watching LVGs United, coupled with Michael Owen commentary really is quite the bore. Like giving Valium to a sleepy child almost! #MUFC

Michael Owen is more exciting than the football. Just going to jump off a cliff
