A lot of Newcastle United fans have flocked to comment on a post from Allan Saint-Maximin after he replied to a tweet from a Toon fan about Michael Owen.

Starting with an easy one, what number does Wilson wear for Newcastle?

@sparxx was tweeting in response to a post from ToonArmy asking fans to sum up Michael Owen in one word and he claimed that the former Newcastle striker never wanted to be on Tyneside, and that triggered the Frenchman to ask why @sparxx thought that and many Toon fans responded giving their opinion of Owen.

What do these Newcastle fans think of Owen?

Do you hate Owen?

Yes, he was awful

Yes, he was awful

No, he was unlucky

No, he was unlucky

Owen has since admitted that he never wanted to move to Newcastle, and while he did play for the club, he refused to play in a huge game against Fulham during the 2008/09 season because he didn’t want to risk injuring himself, so that he could move to another club.

There are many other reasons why many Toon fans hate Owen, and they continued to tell Saint-Maximin exactly why they don’t like the former Newcastle forward.

However, Saint-Maximin seems to be the total opposite of Owen and has consistently stated his love for the Toon and has also signed a new six-year deal.

Now, he has also learned why many Toon fans hate Owen, which given the number of replies, he could regret asking that particular question.
