Suarez suspended, Carroll misfiring… and now Fowler's back at Liverpool!
First it was Thierry Henry. Then it was Paul Scholes. But surely Robbie Fowler won't be next.
After two high-profile comebacks in the Barclays Premier League, it was perhaps a little optimistic to think Fowler would be pulling on the red of Liverpool again when he was spotted at Melwood on Tuesday.
Watching brief: Robbie Fowler took in the reserve match at Melwood
The legendary striker, who enjoyed two spells at Anfield during his career, took in the reserves match against Blackburn.
With Andy Carroll struggling and Luis Suarez still suspended, the Reds are certainly short of firepower up front.
But even Kop die-hard Fowler would now admit he'd struggle to return to the fast-paced arena of English football after stints playing in the backwaters of Australia and Thailand.

He is expected to be in the crowd for Wednesday's Carling Cup semi-final second leg against Manchester City. Liverpool hold a 1-0 advantage from the first meeting as they attempt to book their first Wembley visit since 1996.
That was when Fowler and co wore those horrendous white suits on the pitch before their defeat to arch rivals Manchester United.
Asked about the suit, Fowler said: 'I've still got it, people still remind me about them. If we'd won nobody would have mentioned it but we lost and it has become infamous.'
