    I always got the impression he couldn't quite believe he'd made as a pro. Seems a decent, humble bloke. Good luck to him.

    Done well at Spurs without being prolific. That goal at the San Siro sent shockwaves through Italy. The year we fucked both Milan teams up they were wondering who Spurs were about after all that

    My QPR friend told me about Crouch years ago and said there was a bid coming in for him. He said he was one of their best players but would never make it big time. He got that wrong!

    I think he’s a credit to the profession. He comes across very well, he has a sense of humour and just obviously loved playing football.... the world needs more Peter Crouch’s and less Jesse Lingarrds!!
     
  5. Still think it's great name for someone who's 7' 13" in their stocking feet.

    How To Be A Footballer is brilliantly funny book. Only drawbacks are that he includes an entire chapter on volleying, inspired by his goal against City. And he hero worships Gerrard and devotes a chapter to him. But apart from those flaws, its hilarious.

    60 pages in, it's laugh out loud at times. Seems a grounded and intelligent fella.
