Summary

To Liverpool fans he was 'God', but Robbie Fowler has never told his full story - until now. 

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 biggest regrets - as well as the money, fame and hoopla that surround the modern game. 

Discussing frankly his rise to football's top table, his struggles with injuries and retirement, as well as his feelings about the modern game, Robbie Fowler: My Life in Football harks back to a simpler time when fans and players shared the same story, and when the local boy really could dream of scoring a hat-trick for his home club when Saturday came.

God

Story was amazing, a great insight to the Legend. Massive downfall was the Narrator! Sounded like Micheal Owen with the worst blag scouse accent ever! Ruined the book for me if I'm honest

They say that you should never meet your heroes

.....maybe the same goes for listening to their autobiography. This was a great player coming across as boastful and arrogant, A man wallowing in his own importance and apparently resentful of others success. I wish I had not read it and that my memories of such a great great striker were reserved for the absolute pleasure he gave me and thousands of others every saturday on the pitch.

The fan as well as the player

Wonderful to know Robbie shared those same emotions that we mere fans go through. Good to hear the back stories that explained so much over the years. Only improvement would be for it to be read by Robbie himself though the narrator was very good.

I love Fowler but just not very interesting

Robbie Fowler is a Liverpool legend but I was disappointed with this book, you’d be better off watching Robbie’s top goals on sky! The autobiography is more of a list of his goals and medals he’s won! There’s next to no interesting or funny stories or insights into players or managers he played with, that most fans wouldn’t already know!

I didn’t warm to his personality either incredibly arrogant which I’m sure most top strikers are!

The narrator clearly isn’t a football fan either, mispronouncing some very well know players names!

Far better players books out there imo!

Simply one of the best football books out there.

Loved this as a true LFC fan it is a must . Witty, well read and in parts had me crying with laughter. Always liked Robbie Fowler and his excellent descriptions brought back so many happy and sometimes sad memories. A great listen and in my personal top 5.

Good read. No fowl

Great insight into a club legend. A little arrogant but what do expect from “GD”. Interesting to hear the conflict between Houllier!
