Speaking to The Mirror, Fowler - who scored 183 goals for Liverpool - was honest about his current state of match fitness, but seemed keen to get back on the pitch. He noted:
"I haven’t kicked a ball for five or six weeks, so I’m a bit rusty, but my overall fitness is very good"
A couple of weeks ago, I conducted a poll on this site asking if Dalglish should offer Fowler a short-term deal. Over a thousand fans took part, and the overwhelming majority voted for a Robbie's return.
In a season of romantic comebacks that has already seen the likes of Thierry Henry, Robbie Keane and Paul Scholes return to the English game, it would be great to see Fowler back in action, if only for a few games.
Given the length of time Fowler has been out of the game, a playing contract is probably not realistic, but why not bring him back as a coach for the strikers? With a conversion rate of 9%, they definitely need some guidance!
Just imagine if mid-1990s Robbie Fowler was at Liverpool right now; the club would probably be top of the league at the moment, such is the difference a prolific natural goalscorer makes to the team.
I don't think I've ever seen a more natural goalscorer for Liverpool in my lifetime; Fowler was a genius, and I'm sure he still has some of that goalscoring ability in his locker.
Rafa Benitez enhanced his standing amongst Liverpool fans when he brought Fowler back in 2006, and with King Kenny under severe pressure at the moment, fans would almost certainly react positively if 'God' was brought back to the club in any capacity.
