    Shearer miles better. Had the all round game and scored over 20 goals a season consistently. Owen never did it once. Says it all.

    Not even a debate, biggest thing Owen ever did was rob the ballon d’or one year. Shearer was world world class for season after season

    ok watched some shearer best goals videos and I think I need to mention that he was bloody good ;) better than I remember .. overall Shearer was better, lasted longer and superbly accurateOwens peak might have been a touch higher than Shearers but its really close who you would want. One of each, but they tried that and it wasn't that amazing ;)

    Owen was class, he got bitter when he got injured. You are too close to this you cant be expected to see it from any other side.
    That's fair enough, Owens side of the last game of the season is similar to yours but not quite the same. perspective is everything.
    Shearer was class also but more of an old school finisher. Owen at his peak was too good to take almost anyone over, Shearer was dependable, but he never managed to catch that bus did he :p

    Owen for Madrid is completely underrated, he had the best goals per game for Madrid in his 1 season, bear in mind they had Ronaldo up front at that time as well. Just English people haven't got the foggiest idea of anything that goes on outside the premier league.

    I once saw Michael Owen in Dubai (I was about 10 I think). It was one of those 4x4 sand dune rides with a middle of the desert party. I had my West Ham top on and approached him (only about 50 people there). I asked for his autograph and he blanked me.

    I love yer videos. I've never liked Michael Owen.i think u pulled at a strand of truth- the Argie game set him as a "peak player " I'm a Rangers fan and Man Utd are my English team- I love, Chris Woods, Andy Goram,, Richard Gough, Paul Scholes, Gary Neville, Ally Mccoist, Mark Hatley, Ronald de Bowr, Arthur Numan, and the FAMOUS FERNANDO RICKSEN. Get Barry Ferguson and Rino Gattuso and Gio Van Bronkherst in there. Dado Purso. These men are legendary and Legends. Michael owen is a prick.

    The thing with Owen was that he wanted Trophies to his name, big trophies. He won the Ballon d'Or, rightfully so, in 2001 where he also won FA Cup, UEFA Cup (Europa League) and Super Cup in the same year that Real Madrid won the UCL. He thought if he goes to Madrid he'll have a UCL and maybe a league title there but unfortunately that didn't work out for him. He DID want to return to Liverpool but that also didn't work out for him. At Newcastle he was this "BIG" player playing for a mid table team so I can see why he was frustrated and angry. When he finally joined United he actually looked happy and was enjoying his time there. Owen went to chase trophies but ended up only winning ONE major trophy since he left Liverpool and that was the Prem with United. Was it worth it? To him, probably yes.

    Shearer was a better player than Owen, Shearer was like a Van Nistelrooy, Cavani, Vieri etc Michael Owen was a better version of Defoe but not close to a Suarez or Aguero, Owen you'd put him in company with guys like Anelka, Lacazette, Inzaghi, Klose.
    It's severely underrating Shearer even to compare him to Owen. Shearer underestimated as he played for Newcastle but had he played for Man Utd he'd probably have won the CL and 5 League titles and be looked at like Henry, Drogba or Aguero.

    Owen ain't a bellend at all. He's a decent geezer. Owen was an incredible player in his day. Even when his pace went he still was a great goals scorer and his touch was still fantastic. The Geordie doesn't know what he is talking about

    Shearer and Owen were two Great goalscorers,that's All!
    unfortunately,Shearer was unhappy that Owen leaves Newcastle for Liverpool,but Owen is a Scouse too.
    30 goals in 79 Appearances in Newcastle is ok and he stayed 4 years there!

    Owen was top class, Shearer is still to this day the best striker to have played in the premier league. If you were watching football throughout the 90's you know what it was like just thinking it's only a matter of time until Shearer scores.

      He was amazing indeed but I would still put him second to Henry. Still both would make it in any All time EPL squads for the years to come.

    Peak Shearer doesn’t come close to Peak Owen. Too many kids on here don’t remember including True Geordie. Peak Shearer was never better than third best striker in the world behind Batistuta and Ronaldo. Owen came along and supplanted him as the star striker for England straight away. Injuries took away his biggest weapon but for a few years his star shone a lot lot brighter than big Al.

    Zidane, Rivaldo, Figo, Totti, Raul, Nedved, Shevchanko, Henry and so on were all at or close to their peak when Owen won the Ballon d'Or in 2001, and he completely deserved it. Not only was Owen in that conversation, but he was the best of that conversation at one point. Shearer has never been considered in the same breath as the aforementioned. Shearer was better over a longer period of time, no doubt, but Owen was so much better at his peak. Obviously had pace, but incredible movement off the ball, exceptional first touch, unbelievable finisher, and had so many memorable moments at such important times. And in his one season with Real Madrid, he had the best goals to minutes ratio in the whole of La Liga. I thought Shearer was a fantastic player and a true legend, but his peak was nowhere near Owen's peak. I think people forget just how a player he was before his injury issues.

    Shearer compared to owen not comparison really...once Owen's pace had gone that's was it he never adapted to losing his pace. After Shearer had his knee trouble he came back a better striker because he adapted for losing some pace but Owen's game was all pace.. Owen's book is good but not a true reflection on his time at Newcastle

    Close call between on their best day who was the best, but not at all a close call to say over the course of a season, shearer in his best years was consistent game after game, home and away, never failed to show and his timing into to six yard box better. In addition to goal scoring could lead the line and hold the ball up, shearer has been the best England striker since the 70’s. He won Blackburn the title, and gained European qualification for Newcastle on a number of occasions.
