Should Villa Sign Peter Crouch?

Should Villa Sign Peter Crouch?

Our latest poll asks, amid rumours that Peter Crouch will be heading for a Liverpool exit this summer (with Portsmouth being strongly linked at the moment), whether we should nip in and sign him again?

In other brief news the Daily Mail are claiming that Liverpool are now at the head of the queue for supposed long time Villa target Jose Boswinga. The report says Man Utd are also tracking the Porto right-back.

The Daily Star say that Barcelona have put Thierry Henry is up for sale. Newcastle, Spurs, Manchester City, West Ham and sadly not Villa have all been linked! Hmmm, nice to dream...!

He is a vastly improved player from when we had him last time and he has a very nice habit of scoring. He would also have a point to prove after being a major victim of the liverpool rotation policy. He also knows a lot of the players and loved it when he was at Villa before. Wouldn't be a bad signing and surely would be a MON style signing?

Yes he is welcome back for the £2mil we sold him form not sure about buying someone for £6mil, selling him for £2mil and then buying him back for £8mil. At that price, no thanks, but at £2-4mil yes please

Well, i hate the idea that we've wasted so much money on Crouch, the initial 6mil we paid pompey was too much, then O'Leary the knob sold him for 2mil, only for him to be sold for 10 next time around...We'd be looking at paying around that mark again to get him back...we'd be a laughing stock. However, i can't help but think that every time i see Crouch i'm impressed, he's just such a good player, and not just "for a big man". I'd like to see Crouch with us, but i'd sooner have another bundle of energy type striker, like Defoe, but obviously not Defoe...what is that guy Saviola who used to play for Barca doing? He seems to be up for sale every season.

I would say go for him and if you can get Boswinga too then you've improved your squad a lot. Boswinga is great right back!

i don't think we should buy crouch. no reason really, just a gut reaction. there are plenty of others out there worth a sniff. maybe we need more ambition in who we're looking at.
