My how things can change in just one week! If you recall, last week Pompey boss Harry Redknapp made it clear to anyone willing to listen that his £6m offer for Liverpool striker Peter Crouch was as high as he was willing to go. He wasn’t going to be dragged through the mud for a lanky Crouchigol robot!
Well seven days later it appears that Redknapp is still a man of his word. He’s still not going to pay more than…oh…wait…apparently Redknapp isn’t afraid of the mud after all! The Daily Mirror reports that Harry found another four million quid in his seat cushion that he’d like to add to a FINAL bid (if you really believe him now) for the Liverpool man.

Judging by the big names Rafa has on his wish list, it would seem to be in the goateed-one’s best interest to make sure this deal got done. Nobody with a brain is going to pay the £15m valuation for Crouch, so why not get the most for him now and use some of it to finalize a deal for Gareth Barry. Now THAT would make sense!
Are Liverpool supporters fine seeing Crouch leave for £10m? Do you think he’s really worth his £15m pricetag?
