On 24th March 1997, Robbie Fowler was awarded a penalty in a top of the table clash against Arsenal after being apparently tripped by Arsenal goalkeeper, David Seaman. However, instead of appealing for a penalty like most would, Fowler got up immediately and wanted to get on with the game only to be told that a penalty was to be awarded. He then turned to the referee and waved dismissively, indicating that it was not a penalty and Seaman should not be penalized. He had simply tripped and Seaman had not touched him. Despite Fowler’s honest dismissal of the ‘foul’, his protest fell on deaf ears as the referee ultimately awarded LFC a penalty. Modern footballers could seriously take a leaf out of Fowler’s book and start displaying such sportsmanship rather than dive and roll all over the place at the absence/slightest of contact.

Proud to have had him in our competition then

What I would like to know is, did he take the penalty? If so did he just kick it out?
