Ex-Liverpool and Stoke striker Michael Owen has a shocker on BT Sport

Oh dear Michael, you've had a right howler here!

There have been a few questions over the standard of punditry in football of late, especially now Gary Neville has left to join Valencia.

While we've got a lot of time for the likes of Roy Keane and Jamie Carragher, there are some former players turned pundits that are not so great.

And while we really did love him as a player – at least when he was young and injury free – Michael Owen is not the greatest pundit or commentator we've ever seen.

So when Stoke City played Manchester City at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday, we weren't expecting too much from the former Liverpool and England man.

AND things didn't get off to a great start for Owen when he seemed to confirm that he's a robot by seemingly malfunctioning:

While he certainly made some interesting comments at half-time and a few good ones at full-time, we're not sure any of them came close to what he claimed about Manchester City's scoring.

Just have a look at this truly incredible piece of punditry: 

Incredible. The best bit about that was the fact that he kinda emphasises 'hardly'. Keep up the good work Michael!
