Michael Owen’s Twitter account has been making for entertaining reading for once.

The grief that Michael Owen gets for his boring co-commentary on BT Sport is probably a little over the top at times, but that said, there’s no doubting that he’s not the most charismatic sporting personality in the public eye at the moment.

If there was any doubting said lack of charisma, then a quick browse through his Twitter account will quickly confirm it; apart from his frankly bizarre hatred of films, it’s boring enough to make one think that it might actually be a parody account like the boring Kearney or boring James Milner accounts that have become so popular of late.

Owen’s tweets did make for entertaining reading this morning, however, even if it was for all the wrong reasons as he regaled followers with the tale of his journey home from Los Angeles that ran into difficulties once his plane arrived into UK airspace.

In fairness to Owen, his frustration is hugely understandable and anyone who’s been through a similar experience will be able to empathise with his plight, but they’re probably the most entertaining series of tweets to ever come from his account and we’d be lying if we said we didn’t raise a wry smile reading through them this morning.

Of all the responses, this was definitely our favourite...

Getting a kick out of someone's else's misfortune? That's right; we're horrible, horrible people.
