Lil Mickey needs to get his bed in the right place to find the net
Michael Owen’s increasingly tenuous World Cup dream has been offered another straw to clutch. Former England cricketer Sir Geoffrey Boycott has written to the misfiring Manchester United star to recommend the Chinese art of Feng Shui.
Boycott claims using Feng Shui helped him to recover from cancer and is now offering to put Owen in touch with an expert to help him force his way into Fabio Capello’s squad.
He told The Sun: “Michael is struggling with his scoring and obviously wants to get back in the England team for the World Cup finals in South Africa. So I wrote to him a while back urging him to give it a go. If he is not interested, fine, I’ve not a problem with that.
“I am only trying to help and if it helps him find his scoring boots again, then great. Everyone has won.
“He hasn’t replied yet. But if he does, I will put him in touch with some experts in Feng Shui and see where that takes him. People who don’t know anything about it say it is rubbish. But all I can say is it worked for me and that is the only thing that mattered.
“When I was very ill, I had a Chinese expert come round to my house and he said do this and do that. We did it and I am here now, still talking. I am alive and, at the time, I wasn’t sure that would be the case.
“He turned the pillows and beds around so they faced the right way and told me to run the taps every now and again so there is running water going through the house. I believe in it.”
Owen is likely to be advised to sleep on the south side of his house, regularly use all of the hobs on his cooker and wear red. OTP suggests a lack of wearing red is probably Owen’s primary concern at the moment!
