Great Man Great Book Robbie man Great book Robbie Liverpool legend This is a frank autobiography by ex Liverpool and England striker Robbie Fowler I had recently read the autobiography of ex England Ian Wright so it was interesting to compare the books Although this was interesting in parts it did not grab me like Ian Wrights book I found this book a little repetitive and dragged on compared to the upbeat writing in the Ian Wright bookI found the book a little similar to Robbie s football career promised so much but in the end failed to live up to the true potential Ok but comes across as having a major chip on his shoulder over Owen and Rooney and how they hav.
