Whether you think Peter Crouch is good enough for a regular start at Anfield or not you must have some sympathy for the giant striker. He finished last season as top scorer and even though Fernando Torres came in with a bang you would still have expected the England international to get some kind of look in the Liverpool line up. Having made just six starts in the Premier League (that’s even less than Harry Kewell) you can understand why he might consider buying out his contract and leaving for pastures new in the summer
A friend of Crouch said: “Peter has kept his mouth shut and tried to prove himself on the training ground every day but it obviously isn’t enough. He knows if Rafa leaves in the summer then the new man might give him a fair crack but if Rafa stays then he will definitely move on. Manchester City are a team on the up and Peter knows they have a good chance of breaking into Europe next year and he won’t have to move house either.” (The People)
Did you know the Merseyside outfit have not lost in the 30 matches Crouchy has scored in? It’s a fact to tell your friends and pass of as a stat you came up with on your own. Will he score another in the Red jersey though?
