No Last Hurrah

Perth Glory fans who attended their last game of the season, a 4-0 loss to Newcastle Jets at Energy Australia are likely to have witnessed Robbie Fowler’s last competitive game of football.

Sources in the United Kingdom have said that the former Liverpool and England star has decided that he will walk away from the everyday routine of training and will concentrate on playing in Masters competitions and invitational games around the world, such as the game he has come under criticism for playing in Chechnya a week ago, as well as continuing his foray into coaching.

This game in Chechnya and the players who participated including Luis Figo, Maradona, Fabien Barthez and Steve MacManaman have come under immense criticism as the organiser, President Ramzan Kadyrov is accused of human rights violations by Amnesty International.

There is a possibility that Fowler may return to Perth purely for the Glasgow Celtic game, although one wonders why and whether coach Ian Ferguson would agree to such a move, as he prepares his team for the upcoming A League season.

Perth Glory will no doubt try and prolong the announcement of such a decision to try and gain maximum membership sales and publicity. They still have him on their website as a forward at the club even though his contract expired two months ago.

Thanks for the memories Robbie and all the best in the future.

    Well done Not The Footy show!
    Good news for Glory Fans, just hope Tony doesn’t go in search of another play friend to try and increase his standing around town.
    He is a sad litle man.
    Hand shake wasn’t to be honoured by him for Mitch but he expects Fowler to honour it. What goes around Tony…

    Rob, What did we tell you?
    All White, I guess you call it reliable sources.
    It was rather foolish of Tony to come out and say that, but sadly he often opens his mouth first.
    I have to say he did what he had to do last year which was bring in fans.

    How come you were on the money a week before Tony Sage even knew?

    Tony made himself look an idiot saying that in the paper and then today having to say he is not coming back.

    Also to say he is devastated… No fans are, shows he knows nothing about football

    Rob, this is Glory prolonging the story in the hope that he will come back to them. Helps PR and memberships. He is more likely to have a job at Liverpool.

    Wait and see…

    from sbs….With van den Brink in the bag, Glory is also expecting to seal the return of veteran marksman Robbie Fowler, who has been given until August to put pen to paper on a new one-year deal.
