ROB'S A GOOD 'UN: Fowler celebrates after scoring a penalty against Sydney FC.
IT'S GOOD to see 'God' hasn't lost his heavenly touch in front of goal.
There was many a sneer when Robbie Fowler headed Down Under to sign for the ridiculously named North Queensland Fury after he was released by Blackburn.
The mockers have tended to focus on the fact that Fowler, 34, will trouser a reported £900,000 over his two years in Townsville.
But when you consider the Liverpool legend, who scored 183 goals in 369 games in his two stints at Anfield, was worth around £30million before he headed for Oz, those critcisms don't really add up - it's a bit of a trek after all.
The Fury, in case you don't know, are one of two brand-new teams in the Aussie A-League and they are tipped to struggle.
And, so far, the tipsters have been proved right. Winless Fury are bottom of the ten-team league having played five, drawn two and lost three.
But that hasn't stopped the Toxteth Terror - Fury's captain - from finding the net.
The number nine (of course) got his third goal for Fury at the weekend, his first from open play in front of the home fans at the Dairy Farmers Stadium (seriously!).
Nice finish though against Brisbane Roar, so much so that Fox Sports's Andy Harper provided proof - if needed - that commentators talking shit is a worldwide phenemenon.
"Class, all class," Harper said of the goal. "Ecclesiastical class."
That's easy for him to say, but it is a decent strike:
And his goal away to Adelaide United at the end of August was none too shabby either...
Fowler opened his account with a coolly taken penalty (fast forward to 3mins, 5secs) at the start of August in a 3-2 defeat to Sydney:
It hasn't all been plain sailing though. The Fury were hammered 5-0 in the middle of August, and God decided it was time to dish out some revenge for taking the piss:
You can take the lad out of Toxteth...
