This video puts Owen in the right perspective. And I agree with the author that this, especially with Neville Southall's comment, is one of the greatest things on the Internet.

I'm not jumping up and down - it's extremely honest - not got an issue with him opening up about it but.....

No good moaning about it now though - he took the money, he made the decision to go there....it was his choice, no one forced him.

That's not a good look from either of them - I'm taking an extended break from Twitter and Facebook, they are just not good platforms any more.

There's nothing wrong with the platforms - more the people who are using them/ how they are being used.

He is stirring up controversy to sell his book. Nothing to see here really, just an otherwise dull individual trying to draw attention to himself.

They're just full of poison. The only thing I consider paying attention to on Twitter is something from a reliable source (apart from nabbing the occasional funny gif of course). Opinions from randoms are just junk (and you never know who's actually camped in a troll farm, there's so much propaganda around). I don't touch FB.

He's very dull but there's nothing controversial here. And his comments about the Newcastle fans singing when he got knocked out gives some context.

This is probably a good lesson for clubs not to sign players on the way down in their careers (see also Michael Chopra, Jimmy Bullard, Mark Fish)

I just use Twitter as a news service now - have notifications turned on from a few places which I look at and directly to the articles linked without looking at the comments etc.

It's just such a habit - everytime I pick my phone up I go to open it still. Had to move the app which is embarrassing to admit!

Don't be embarrassed - aren't these things recognised as addictive these days? Sure I read something about how the social media companies go out of their way to make them as much so as possible even.

Has anyone ever looked at their own postings for last day or so? Oh my... so sorry.

I had to do the same. But then I still look at it on the web browser, so removing the app didn't work too well! Deleted my account though. I'm trying to just use it for football stuff these days, but my discipline slips fairly often.

Very much so. Social media companies deliberately design to encourage compulsive use.

This is a fascinating podcast with a Georgetown researcher on the creep of digital media into our lives and the impact/steps to counter it disrupting us. Bit of a long watch, but there's a pure podcast version on Rich Roll's website. I listened to it in the gym!

The next Premier League fixture is Liverpool vs. Newcastle as well.

Could be a complete coincidence ... but looks like a tap in for a publicist or publisher's marketing department.
