Publisher's 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.

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!

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.

Ruined by the Narrator

Struggled to listen to a narrator who's voice was painful. Regularly got players names wrong and ruined what would have been a good listen.

Good book

I enjoyed robbies book, very insightful into the workings of a footballers life and career, bit disappointed with the narrator, he clearly wasn’t from Liverpool so I don’t understand why he pretended to be, that said the book is enjoyable

Excellent from start to finish

Robbie Fowler had an amazing football playing career playing for mostly the club he loved. This autobiography was like his football career, excellent from start to finish.
