"It strikes me that these days, clubs don't even want players who can truly play any more; they just want athletes, quick guys who don't have a football brain, can just run and run; some of them, Jesus. I can never imagine acting like that"

- Robbie Fowler

About this Quote

In this quote, Robbie Fowler reveals his frustration with the current state of professional football clubs. He believes that nowadays, clubs focus on physical abilities over actual ability and talent. According to Fowler, clubs are more thinking about signing professional athletes who can run quick and have a strong body, rather than gamers who possess a deep understanding of the game. He even goes as far as stating that a few of these players lack a "football brain," meaning they do not have the capability to believe strategically and make clever decisions on the field. Fowler discovers this pattern worrying and can not picture himself ever playing in such a way.
