Why Did They Bother.....Robbie Fowler!!!
Robert Bernard Fowler, more often known as Robbie, or to some, God, was snapped up after an initial trial by former Liverpool compatriot, Paul Ince, on a free transfer after he rejected a pay as you play contract from Cardiff.

Fowler was snapped up on a 3 month, pay as you play deal, with Paul Ince attempting to revive the career of the former Liverpool Strike Man.

Making his Rovers debut in a League cup victory over Everton, Fowler went on to make 3 league appearances, all as substitutes, and was often laughed at for his lack of, well everything really.
