Jabba's Comments

A Liverpool lad all his life - born there and with the football team since his youth - Fowler is one of the most naturally talented strikers to have played the game and his goalscoring record in nearly 10 years at Anfield is superb. He had a few run-ins with the authorities in the past - notably when he did a "line-sniffing" celebration after a goal - and following an altercation with everybody's chum Le Saux faced sanction from the FA, but he also gathered plaudits when he told the ref to turn over a penalty decision after he'd been tackled fairly in the area at Arsenal.

In 2000-01, rumours of his departure from Anfield started to circulate as he failed to secure a permanent place in the starting line up, but he still played a vital part in Liverpool's Cup treble. In 2001-02, a much-publicised bust-up with coach Phil Thompson resulted in an apparent reconciliation - but when Leeds came in with a bid, Gerard Houllier and the Liverpool board surprisingly decided to let him go. At Leeds he was an instant hit with the crowd, and - with a solid run in the first team - has got back on the goal trail with a vengeance. He formed a decent partnership with Mark Viduka and he played himself back into the England World Cup squad, although a late-season injury knocked the edge of his sharpness and he was not used much in Japan and Korea.

At the start of the 2002-03 season he picked up a hip injury in the pre-season games that looks set to keep him out of the first few months of the season. After gradually coming back into the team towards the end of 2002, he was offered to Manchester City as the debt problems mounted at Elland Road, and just when a £7 million move seemed set to be sealed it collapsed because the player didn't seem to think that the Maine Road board supported his purchase. A week later it was back on - for a million quid less for some reason and he had obviously been convinced by Kevin Keegan that he would enjoy a renaissance in his career playing alongside Nicolas Anelka.

Venny Saarce says: Robbie Fowler is my favorite soccer player...I know he plays for Leeds now..but he is the one who made me love Liverpool. I think he is a wise person at least when he is on the field (playing).What can I say. HE IS MASTER OF STRIKERS. And I hope Leeds won't let me down like what Liverpool did by putting him on the bench. FOWLER RULESSS!

FOWLERNUM1 says: A fantastic player who always shows admiration in his games! English football lacks players of such quality! Also he should have not been on the bench for England!

Yourfan says: I have always watched robbie play and he is my favourite. No one can compare to his scoring ability when he is at his best. People always talk about Owen but what has he got? PACE- thats all. Robbie is different......he is a real talent and can score goals left and right foot, with powerful header and exciting goals........and the best about him is he has got warm personality and the kops favourite

Doddsy says: I am so glad Fowler didn't go to Man city. Keep banging them in for Super Leeds. Fowler is pure class. Not another striker in the league with his predatory instincts. Also him snorting the line was the funniest thing I've ever seen on a football pitch!

Susan Barker says: Robbie Fowler is the greatest natural striker in the premiership . I applaud KK who has had the vision to see that Robbie can soon be back to his best, and together with Anelka he will strike fear into the defences of 19 other teams. I supported Liverpool FC for 40 years, but I will not back them again until they get rid of the 2 traitors houllier and Thomson ( neither of whom is fit to lace Robbies boots up!) . We love you Robbie -- good luck at Man City for 2003/4 season.

Martin fowler says: robbie fowler is the man. Live the dream! Love him like a brother
