Pronounced as the greatest goalscoring talent since Jimmy Greaves, seventeen-year old Robbie Fowler was immediately catapulted to fame and fortune. The thin, baby-faced Toxteth lad, who had trampled the same streets as the rioters, was now a millionaire, an idol and inspiration to every kid who kicked a football. Yet his incredible potential was never quite realised. Injuries and persistent rumours of drug abuse and depression meant that though Fowler remains one of the most celebrated of Premiership stars, he never became the world-beater so many predicted. This is a fascinating and unbelievably frank insight into the beautiful game, taking us behind the closed doors of professional football to expose what really happens at both club and international level. This is a truthful and candid account of an incredible career, examining not just the records and the glory, but the low points and the miseries of a footballing life that many people now believe somewhere, somehow went wrong. Brilliance and controversy have stalked Robbie Fowler from his five goal performance in only his second full game for Liverpool, to his snorting of the touchline in the Merseyside derby. In this utterly compelling autobiography, Robbie Fowler looks back on what was, what wasn't and what might have been. This is the story of one of the game's true icons, and the story of the modern game itself. After scoring six goals in his first two senior games, the seventeen-year old Robbie Fowler was pronounced the greatest goal-scoring talent since Jimmy Greaves. It was the beginning of the turbulent, majestic and fascinating career of the striker the Kop called 'God.' In this utterly candid autobiography, Robbie Fowler looks back on what was, what wasn't and what might have been - as well as looking to the future. Fowler is the story of one of the game's true icons, and the story of the modern game itself.

Product Description:

After scoring six goals in his first four senior games, the seventeen-year-old Robbie Fowler was pronounced the greatest goal-scoring talent since Jimmy Greaves. It was the beginning of a turbulent, majestic and fascinating career of the striker the Kop called 'God'.

The skinny, baby-faced Toxteth lad, who had tramped the same streets as the rioters, quickly became the Premiership's brightest hope. Robbie Fowler was a millionaire, an idol and an inspiration to every kid who kicked a football. Yet his incredible potential was never quite realised. Injury and controversy - not least his snorting of the touchline after scoring at Everton - meant he never became the world-beater so many predicted. With unbelievable frankness, Robbie talks openly about his relationship with managers and coaches, his friendships and rivalries, and how he has coped with the elation, frustration and pressures of life at the top flight of football.

In this utterly candid autobiography, Robbie Fowler looks back on what was, what wasn't and what might have been - as well as looking to the future. 'Fowler' is the story of one of the game's true icons, and the story of the modern game itself.
