With ex Aston Villa striker Peter Crouch scoring a hattrick for England on Saturday, as well as missing a penalty:

and the fact that even the pundits seem split on the player:

I thought I'd run a poll asking if Villa were right to sell Peter Crouch to Southampton -especially when you bear in mind they later sold him on to Liverpool at a £5million profit and he now plays regularly for England!
Now obviously I'm an expert and could see the potential. WHAT? Oh ok, I didn't think he would ever make the grade but was amazed when we sold him for such a small amount of money, especially when we are always being told how small the squad is by the manager.
So, Peter Crouch, what do you think?
The options are 'he should have been kept and I said so'. 'In hindsight he should have been kept'. 'PC is an average striker'. 'Is a great striker'. 'Villa were right to sell him'. '£2m? What were you thinking DOL?'
One thing you could always guarantee is he would give 100% and he did always try. My vote goes for the in hindsight option, although I'm still not convinced he is a world class striker, so it either shows the lack of depth for England or he'll be a gem this world cup and convince me totally. The latter would be very nice thank you!
Certainly seems that Graham Taylor is having the last laugh after the criticism he got for signing Crouch from Portsmouth.
