Crouch Best Article In World Tribute

Crouch Best Article In World Tribute

Darn it, I've just noticed one article I did yesterday hasn't shown up. Bet I wrote it then deleted it. Yup, I am that stupid! Much like Tenacious D who wrote the best song in the world and then forgot it, I reckon it was the best article in the world ever!!! Well, maybe not.

I was merely speculating on the rumours that Villa will be bidding £20million in the January transfer window to buy Scott Carson permanently and to attract England and former Villa striker Peter Crouch back to Villa Park.

The figure mentioned is in excess of £10million and the reports I read had no quotes or real substance, especially as Crouch has said he is happy at Liverpool and not looking to move. The link might make sense as Martin O'Neill is certainly trying to build a strong English back bone to the side but should a player ever return to a former club?

His scoring record for England is certainly impressive, so what do you think?

Our latest poll asks the very question, which is a hell of a coincidence!!

'Tribute'.

I'd take him back in a second. He's funny looking for sure but he seems a great bloke and he's a deceptively skilfull player. All the 'pool fans i know want him to play all the time, dunno why Rafa leaves him out. Sign him up!!

Would be a great signing and a great sign of intent about where we want to be going. Make it happen!

No. It would only start to make sense if both Harewood and Carew left the club. Anelka would be a better option and surely wants to leave Bolton more than Crouch wants to leave Anfield.

And besides - harewood should leave the club and carew is injured too often. Sign crouch up.

Agreed. Harewood has no place here and I'm sure patience with Carew is all but expired. Anelka not only thinks he is bigger than clubs, he probably thinks he is bigger than God! Crouch all the way.

Have to say I think Anelka would be quality for Villa. He is always linked with other clubs but Bolton got him. Fair enough, straight choice he'd go to Utd but would be nice to see us try. He might be sulky but he is also very strong, skillful and one of those rare players who can chang the course of a game on their own, much like old Magic Merse used to. He'd fit in well now with the way the speedy players try to get the ball forward and with the right service from Young, Barry etc, he'd have a field day.

I,ve read Man City also after Crouch with a £140 million summer tranfer kitty! How can anyone compete other than by having even more money. The sport of football needs a revolution. If we could sign him it would be great, but I am afraid we will be easily outbid and out-manouvred.
