Who said it: Michael Owen or Boring James Milner?

The 'traditional curtain raiser' to the new football season finally took place yesterday, bringing an end to the agonising football-free summer we've all had to endure.

But as Arsenal were busy beating Chelsea to claim the Community Shield, poor old Michael Owen was getting more criticism for his lacklustre commentary for BT Sport, with thousands taking to Twitter to declare 'Michael Owen's voice is like a vacuum for joy' and simply 'I forgot how boring Michael Owen was'.

But just how boring is good old Mickey? Could he possibly be as boring as the legendary parody Twitter account Boring James Milner (@boringmilner), created to hilariously imagine just how dull the 'reliable', 'team player' James Milner might be in real life?

Can you tell them apart? Take our surprisingly difficult quiz and find out.
