Owls linked with Robbie Fowler move

Wednesday have been linked with a shock move for former Liverpool and Manchester City striker Robbie Fowler on a short-term contract.

Owls boss Dave Jones is considering a deal for the 36-year-old until the end of the season, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The Liverpool legend recently rejected terms on a deal to sign for Championship club Blackpool, understood to have been just £90 a week with a fee of £5,000 per game for the Seasiders.

Jones worked with Fowler during his time as manager of Cardiff City, something which could help sway Fowler towards a final flourish of his playing career with the Owls.

Would love to see Robbie Fowler in a Wednesday shirt, despite his age would still be a welcomed signing by most Owls fans and I personally think he would be able to do the business in this league. God!!!

Where is he playing right now? And offering Robbie Fowler 90 pounds a week must be the funniest thing I've heard all year. You can make more by cleaning toilets in third world countries.

Seen him play a few times in the A league last season and he's not the stand out player I expected. For me overall the A league is not as good as the first div in England. Not the progressive signing I'd like to see.

As much as I dont agree with the signing, this isn't the time of the season that you sign a 'progressive signing, this time oif the season it's about getting someone in who can help guide you to the promised land! Robbie ain't that guy for me as a player - as a coach in and around the squad i think he would have a positive impact and add some confidence to our squad.

You don't think our players could learn anything from Robbie Fowler? Am I on the Real Madrid forum? Mis Disculpas buñuelo.

Karl Oyston's offer says to Fowler "You're not fit enough. Why should we pay you, overweight and under-trained, thousands for a few ten minute cameos? Prove you can get back to something like match fitness and that's when you'll get your money." Wednesday doesn't need a bench-warming used-to-be-legend a stone and a half bigger than he should be. We have all the confidence we need from three straight wins, and the thrashing we'll give to Walsall next time out.

So not signing a 'progressive' player would be more beneficial to improving our chances of promotion? So would a Player of less quality improve us? We need players who have something to offer and improve the squad so as a team we progress

I see the "Was it right to sack Megson" poll is evening out from its original "Major" No" voting pattern. Onwards and up.
