Liverpool's cult heroes

This vote is now closed.

Robbie Fowler has been voted Liverpool's all-time cult hero by Football Focus viewers.

Fowler won with 65% of the vote, ahead of fellow Liverpool favourites Kenny Dalglish and Bruce Grobbelaar.


He epitomized the club and its fans, it was a love-love relationship. He loved the Red shirt. Robbie Fowler and The Kop go together like bread and butter!! Remember, the Dockers support, the Hat-trick v Arsenal, the goal against Alaves.....GOD.
Daniel Legg

His natural eye for goal, fantastic goal scoring record and love of the fans.
Daniel Buckney

Could score from anywhere. Sometimes acted up to the crowd and got himself in trouble but will be remembered for his amazing scoring ability.
Ben Henry

The Man is a legend.
Colin Mahon

Besides being a fantastic goal scorer in his early days at Liverpool, Fowler stands out because he was Scouse through and through. A particular moment that really endeared him to me was when he scored during a Cup Winners' match only to then reveal a t-shirt sporting the slogan "Support The 500 Sacked DoCKers" in response to the awful way that dockers were being treated on Merseyside at the time - it was even better coming two days after Fowler had argued with the referee after receiving a penalty against Arsenal that he didn't believe he deserved!
Gavin Buxton

Stereotype local lad done good. Such an exciting player as he came on the scene. Reason for him being here - The "Support the Liverpool Dockers" T-shirt. Absolutely brilliant. The time he argued against a penalty awarded in his favour against David Seaman was really something special, not what you expect from the modern game is it?
David Walker

A typical Scouse who played with the cheek of a Scouser.
Darren Jamieson

He is God !! At his best unbelievable - at his worst controversial ! What more is there to be said?
Neil Thompson


An exciting, dazzling striker who only sporadically gave a poor performance. Anon.

Caused a buzz of expectancy when he was on the park and when he got the ball near the opponents' penalty area, you were just waiting for something special to happen.

Was he the most complete footballer ever? Fantastic player.
Gavin Hough

Best forward and all round player we ever ha.
Carl Brightman

Backing into defenders, rolling off them and curling the ball into the top corner of the net with his left foot. And then the happiness on his face when he scored.
Donal Blaney

A true legend , probably the best ever Liverpool player.
Rob Morris


Grobbelaar could cause a smile now and again, ok and also the odd groan, but he was still a great character.

Mad clown-type personality, everyone remembers his antics: wobbly knees in goal v Roma in the 1984 European Cup final and walking on hands in front of the Kop. Basically bizarre behaviour.
Ben Henry

The irrepressible Bruce - whether it be flapping at a cross, walking on his hands around Wembley or producing his jelly legs in Rome, the man never ceased to amuse. My own personal memories are of him running out at Anfield one Christmas wearing a cap with a plastic duck on it!!
Paul Ward

What a character. Flamboyant and eccentric, but his main attribute was fantastic agile goalkeeping.
Andrew Slater

His finer moments tended to be missed off-camera when play was in the other half and unseen by his team-mates and opponents, for the obvious reasons, but which delighted the watching fans.
Paul Crookall

No other keeper can emulate his mad style, coming for crosses on the edge of the penalty box, inspired reaction saves, blunders, dribbling the ball out of the box, arguing with his own colleagues, handstands - you name it he is the epitome of a cult hero.
Donal Blaney
