When "celebrities" attack: the best bits from Michael Owen and Piers Morgan's Twitter spat

If it wasn’t so cringeworthy, it’d almost be funny.

TV STAR and well-known Arsenal fan Piers Morgan is rapidly becoming the chief tormentor of Manchester United’s Twitter-using players.

In recent weeks, Rio Ferdinand and Wayne Rooney have both been on the receiving end of the chat show host’s 140-character barbs. Last night, however, it was turn of sparingly-used striker Michael Owen.

Our inner historian has encouraged us to preserve the debate for posterity – you know, as a sign of the current intellectual health of the human race or something like that – so we’ve included a slideshow of the spat’s best bits.

Who do you think was the winner? Or is this one of those occasions when everyone loses?
