GOALS, goals, goals… John Gibbons and Andy Heaton join Gareth Roberts at the TAW Liverpool studio to talk a legend, an unsung player and a cult hero.
Say what you like about any of the players discussed, they knew where the net was but some are held more dearly in Reds’ affections than others…
Splendid show, chaps. I’ve only heard the Robbie Fowler segment so far and was listening to it while watching a youtube compilation of his goals. He was an absolute joy to watch and I forgot the energy and youthful exuberance he played with. So many varied goals from tap-ins to long-range efforts, free-kicks, headers, left-footed, right footed and (my favourite, against Charlton), the over head kick. A natural finisher. Take note, hoddle.
Of course he was never the same after that collision, (assault?!), from thomas myhre. Robbie remains my favourite player from the Evans-Houllier era. When Rafa brought him back, (“I Am The Resurrection”), he showed the world he still had it.
Favourite Fowler moment: his show of solidarity with the sacked Liverpool dockers for which he was fined by Wafer for “bringing politics into sport” (sick).
Bravo, Robbie. Bravo!
P.S. What I wouldn’t give right now for a striker with just a quarter of his finishing skill.
Remember the days of Fowler and Mcmanaman going to sully`s in b=Bootle after the match and just acting like 2 normal lads
