    Default Robbie Fowler

    Robert Bernard Fowler also known as "GOD" to the Liverpool fans (born 9 April 1975 in Liverpool) is an English football player who currently plays as a striker for Liverpool F.C.

    Fowler's career began with Liverpool, with whom he made his debut in 1993. Fowler scored 120 goals for Liverpool in an eight year period. He subsequently played for Leeds United and Manchester City F.C., before returning to Liverpool in January 2006. As of March 2005, Fowler is the third highest goalscorer in Premiership history, behind Andy Cole and Alan Shearer.

    He has been capped for England 26 times, scoring 7 goals. The most recent of these appearances came in the 2002 World Cup.

    Fowler was born on 9 April 1975 and was raised in the Toxteth area of Liverpool. As a youngster he was an ardent Everton supporter, regularly travelling to Goodison Park with his father or uncle. He was selected for Liverpool Schoolboys from the age of 11 and was spotted by Liverpool scout Jim Aspinall. He began training with Liverpool once a week and signed schoolboy forms with the club. Two years later he signed on as a YTS trainee and he turned professional in April 1992 on his 17th birthday.

    Outside of football, The Official British Horseracing website lists Fowler as a major celebrity race horse owner, citing his and best friend Steve McManaman's company, The Macca and Growler Partnership. In 2005, Fowler was listed as one of the 1000 wealthiest Britons by the Sunday Times Rich List. Business interests including a large property portfolio have resulted in Fowler becoming one of the wealthiest sportsmen in Britain. [1]

    On 2 September 2005, Robbie released an autobiography called Fowler: My Autobiography about his time as a footballer and the issues surrounding him. Excerpts published in newspapers included criticism of the England management.

    Rarely do A-League players make global headlines but news of Robbie Fowler's hat-trick reached far and wide. For the most part, Fowler has not lived up to his reputation in Perth but, credit where it's due, he turned back the years against Victory. Early in the match he dropped off the front but when Adrian Leijer tracked him into that space, he instead made clever forward runs into the channels and in behind the defence. It was the Liverpool legend's most energetic performance in Australia, exactly what was required to lift Perth out of their crisis. As a marquee name on a marquee wage, you could say that's to be expected on a consistent basis. Perhaps so, but there's no doubting Fowler delivered a match-winning performance on this occasion.
