You have to feel sorry for Peter Crouch, don’t you. I mean I can see why Rafa is happy sticking with the current formation with just Torres up front and Crouchy left on the bench – but it still feels harsh on last season’s top scorer.
Roma coach Luciano Spalletti is keen to bid for Crouch so he can be a physical presence to play alongside Francesco Totti in attack (ControCampo).
It seemed that Man City and Portsmouth were favourites to battle it out for the giant striker, but if this Serie A move is in the slightest bit plausible then surely the England international will give a move to Rome a shot. What has he got to lose?
