Robbie Fowler Set To Give Liverpool Something To Cheer About

There is nothing like a trip home to remind you why you moved away in the first place, but while some move for a change of scenary or to meet new people, Robbie Fowler moved to Cardiff because he wasn’t good enough for Liverpool. So will he shove it down Rafa’s throat with a hat-trick tonight as Cardiff go to Anfield? Of course he bloody won’t, he’s a bit rubbish these days. But if he did it would probably wouldn’t go down as badly with the Scouse fans as you would imagine. As the Guardian point out:

“Nicknamed God among the red half of Merseyside, Fowler can do no wrong in the eyes of Liverpool fans, with his homecoming expected to deliver an ear-piercing ovation that is likely to leave many of the Cardiff players feeling like extras making up the numbers on a film set. The adulation is born from an extraordinary record that reads 183 goals in 369 appearances during two spells with Liverpool, although the statistics are not imprinted on Fowler’s psyche.”
