- My Life in Football
- By: Robbie Fowler
- Narrated by: Luke Francis
- Length: 8 hrs and 18 mins
In Robbie Fowler: My Life in Football, Robbie takes us on a journey through the games that have shaped his career and thinking about football, from Hillsborough to Istanbul, via the cup treble, that celebration, all those goals, Houllier, Benitiez, Klopp and the rest. Personal and revealing, Robbie's stories come from a life spent inside the game. He invites us inside the dressing room, sharing stories of legendary teammates like Rush, Owen and Gerrard, his love of the Kop, his greatest achievements and his regrets - as well as the money, fame and hoopla that surround the game.

This is possibly the worst example of narration I have heard.
The story lacks any sort of drama or insight, like something from Shoot magazine in the 80’s.
Fowler also thinks he is hilarious. He isn’t.

A Book of Two Halves

A History of Professional Wrestling?? Not really.
The first part of the book is good, an insight into how pro wrestling as we know it today came about. After this part it is all down hill...
My problems with the book are as follows:
After the first 15-20 minutes there is nothing new, and I really mean NOTHING. These are wrestling stories any proper fan has heard many times before.
The author is nowhere near as funny as he thinks he is.
It is the typical dump on Eric Bischoff book. Listen to the 83 weeks podcast for a bit more balance.
It is the typical WWF/E arse kissing festival, Vince McMahon is a genius etc etc.. Loads of stuff the WWF produced was abysmal in the 90s (its not much better now) but listening to this you would think the mid 90's never happened.
Overall a pretty poor effort. Jim is clearly a fan of wrestling but should stay as one.
