Owen like any other footballer at the top of their game wanted to play in the top competitions. I suppose Gerrard has no love for the shirt or Fowler either - he had to accept terms of transfer after all. Whether he's still a world class striker of not it's unfair to label him a glory hunter for chasing dreams that he probably had since he was a kid. He's always shown dignity and respect for Liverpool FC.
The transfer sagas of Gerrard, Fowler and Owen are all incomparable.
Gerrard could have left of his own accord, to go to a team that has bought success, or stay and fight for success with his team, realising the massive potential that the squad has - he stayed.
Fowler didn't want to go anywhere, and was forced out of the club by Houllier and Thompson.
Owen had options, didn't sign another contract, wittled his value down so he could go and then fucked off. Could have came back after a year but chose a far more lucrative option, but a far worse team - European Champions or Intertoto Champions?
