Crouch done mores the pity
Who says money can't buy you love.
The news most Spurs fans feared was confirmed tonight. A player we let go years ago for £60k is back to haunt us after costing £10 million plus something ridiculous in wages. Peter Crouch scored an amazing 16 goals in all competitions last year so is a decisively average signing to complement our already decisively average bunch of strikers. Peter Crouch is the type of striker who will fire us to the lofty position of 8th place. He is not the type of signing we need to push on and look like European challengers once again but the sort who will see us return to football of the 666 era - I look forward to the long diagonal ball from Dawson once he is fit.
In Peter's defence he will bring others into the game such as Defoe or Keane. It may well see Defoe hit 30 goals for us but you have to remember in our two seasons of finishing 5th our strikers were scoring 30 a piece in all competitions (Keane and Berbatov). Crouch managed 16 and his records for Liverpool and Southampton hardly set the world alight either. He just isn't good enough and is sadly the sign of things to come from the Dustcart and Levy.
