Anfield great to play at Bloomfield Road.
Blackpool are set to make the shock swoop for former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler, who has recently been training with the club.
The 36 year-old (who will turn 37 in a month’s time) has just started training with the Bloomfield Road team, and will hope to form part of the world’s oldest strike force in the history of football.
Kevin Phillips is 38, while Brett Ormorod is 35, meaning that Fowler joined the pair up front for Blackpool, the attacking line would have a combined age of 109.
Fowler isn’t expected to make his debut for the Tangerines this weekend, but will instead continue to train as he seeks full fitness.
Blackpool manager Ian Holloway is optimistic over his form though.
“It’s brilliant to have someone like Robbie at the club,” said the Bloomfield Road boss.
“He looked terrific in training and I don’t think he’s that far away from being fully fit.”
Fowler scored 183 goals in total for Liverpool, and was widely hailed as the club’s most natural goalscorer in years.
Beloved of the fans, he came to be known by the humble nickname of God.
Blackpool will hope the veteran striker can have a divine effect on their season.
