No. 47 – Robbie Fowlers Premier League record
Fowler enjoyed two spells at Anfield, between 1993-2001, scoring 120 goals in 236 appearances and between 2006-2007, scoring 8 goals in 30 appearances under Rafa Benitez. However, back on Sunday 28th August 1994, a Robbie Fowler moment never to be forgotten started at 3:29pm and lasted a glorious four minutes and 32 seconds.
TIA Forum member Scrummie takes a look back at the day Premier League history was made by a new KopStar……
‘œOn a bright sunny afternoon in late August 1994, Premier League history was made in just four minutes and thirty three seconds. Four minutes and thirty three seconds. In that time, Robbie Fowler scored three, yes THREE goals against George Graham’s Arsenal. It is a Premier League record which remains unmatched.
The first goal was a cool, left footed finish in the far corner after Ian Rush’s knockdown. The second was the pick of the bunch, and classic Fowler. Rush sprayed the ball wide on the left hand side of the box. 20 yards out, Fowler struck the ball ever so sweetly and in it went off the post.. Anfield was raucous and Fowler ecstatic.
But there was more to come. Not long after, Barnes lobbed the ball and sent Fowler through in on goal. Seaman rushed forward and saved Fowler’s first shot in vain.. Fowler was cool enough to trap the ball and stroke the ball home from an ever so tight angle.
The Kop were joyous, and still shocked at the record breaking four minutes and thirty three seconds which had just passed before their eyes…’
