Peter Crouch
« on: October 8, 2018, 12:24:40 PM »
I've searched high and low but unless i am having a total nightmare i couldn't see a thread on Peter Crouch

Now other than having had one of my favourite songs for a player (feet stick out the bed) i just wanted to say how much I am enjoying his Podcasts on the BBC where he talks about all sorts of subjects.

Couple of my favourites so far are talking about the ice baths when he was saying Shaqiri was up to his nostrils whilst Crouch said he didn't even get his balls wet ;D

The other was a story about Liverpool fancy dress parties

Well worth a listen anyway!

He's one of the great characters in football. Love his twitter feed. He's got a book out at the moment too - 'How to be a Footballer' - think I'll give it a go.

Enjoying the podcast even though I generally find (usually ex) footballers telling anecdotes about their playing days a bit boring & cringeable. Crouch seems really self aware and self deprecating though.

Great book. Culminates in a great little chapter about Gerrard.

He does come across as a decent bloke. I saw a tweet of his a few months back that made me laugh.
Some lad had said thanks to him as Crouch had donated something, a shirt possibly, im not sure. The lad then said "as a thank you I promise to stop wanking over your wife". Crouch replied " if you could mate, that would be great."

He’s quite a funny bloke. His podcast and book are a decent listen/read, especially the podcast episode that came from his old local curry house which is now my local one.

Crouch's goal for Stoke against Man City was phenomenal. Easily one of the best prem goals of the last decade. It's easy to bucket him with some other big lumps up top but he had a lot of ability for his size.

Was nice to see Crouchy get such a good reception, was a good player for us and scored some lovely goals. Am I right in thinking his "he's big, he's red" song got song? Sounded like it on my stream.  ;D

Been getting into the podcast recently and it's good but a few insights into the state of English football(ers). He lauds Harry redknapp for his simple tactics at spurs of just giving the ball to modric. He talks about Tony pulis giving etherington and crouch days off training for playing well. He's asked about a tactical mistake and cites an example of playing on the left of a 433 for us away to Watford but he scores 2 goals and we won 3-0. He takes a dig at capello for giving him tips on how to improve his volleying. He talks about his goal drought with us and basically says he fixed it by playing higher up the pitch than raga asked him to.

He comes across as a good and down to earth lad overall though. Don't think there's any malice to the above examples but nice examples of how some footballers probably think. Managers get a lot of stick
