Pics: Michael Owen's teammates did an egg-cellent job of destroying his car this morning

It’s Michael Owen’s last home game for Stoke today so his team-mates paid tribute to him the only way they know how... by covering his car in eggs and flour.

Owen hasn’t played an awful lot for the Potters this season but will probably see a few minutes against Spurs at the Britannia today as he has already signalled his intention to hang up his boots at the end of the campaign and enter into a career in punditry that, eh, isn’t exactly much-anticipated by football fans going on his appearances to date.

Still Owen seems a decent chap in general and his Stoke teammates obviously don’t think he’s a bad yolk once he comes out of his shell as they chose to mark his last game today in time-honoured football tradition... by destroying his expensive looking car with eggs and flour.

Interestingly, Owen identified Glenn Whelan and Jonathan Walters amongst the chief subjects, indicating that the Irish lads at Stoke are up for the craic as much as anyone else.

Owen has promised revenge before the end of the week but with all due respect to the man, we doubt the people responsible for the prank are quaking in their boots at the prospect of payback.
