Red Carpet Events & The Forum, Waterford are proud to present an evening with Robbie Fowler & Jason McAteer. Two of the most popular Liverpool Legends of the past 25 years will take to the stage next month (Wednesday November 14th) in a one off night of questions & answers, fun & banter.
Robbie Fowler, or “God” as he is affectionately known amongst the Liverpool fraternity, is one of the most beloved players to ever wear the famous red of Liverpool Football Club. He made his debut for them on September 22nd 1993 where he scored his first of 183 goals for the Anfield side. He has played for an array of clubs since leaving Merseyside in 2001 but his heart and soul always belonged to the KOP. These days he can be seen doing TV work for Sky Sports & ITV as well as the comedy quiz show “A League of their own”.
Jason McAteer is another Anfield legend with the added aura of being a 52 capped Irish player and the man whose crucial goal sent us to the 2002 World Cup finals. McAteer started his career with Bolton Wanderers where he made 114 appearances and scored 8 times. He signed for Liverpool in 1995 and quickly settled in with players like David James, Jamie Redknapp, Robbie Fowler and Steve McManaman. As well as being top class footballers, these guys also became known in the media as “spice boys”, usually for their off the field antics.
McAteer went on to make 100 appearances for Liverpool (3 goals) before moving on to Blackburn Rovers in 1999. Since ending his football career in 2007 McAteer has made countless TV appearances and can still regularly be seen and heard on Irish TV and media as well as on Sky Sports and ITV. He has also been spotted as the “lively one” at Legends XI matches in recent years.
