Crouch Grouch

Crouch Grouch

And finally someone has noticed it on the domestic front!

I`ve long held the belief, just like most referee`s who have had dealings on an international basis with 'Le Freak` that he`s far from legitimate with his play.

Speaking after the 1-1 draw at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday evening, Sir Alex Ferguson pointed out something very interesting, remarking to the media about a certain Peter Crouch,

"He fouls all the time. He gets off with it because of his height, but he jumps on top of defenders all the time."

"He has been doing that for a long time. Referees know that. Even with the goal he has maybe caught Phil Jones. He`s a handful in the air, no doubt about that."


Are Sir Alex, those international referees and I right, does Crouch get away with persistent fouling when he uses his height to pressurize defenders?

HAHAHAHAHA! Good old slur, deflecting attention from his own players' deficiencies by attacking someone else. Crouch may not be whiter than white, but check out the goal - Phil Jones lost Crouch (must have been 4 feet away from him) and allowed him a free header - in other words Jones never got near enough to Crouch to be fouled. The continued hanging on slurs every word as if it were the gospel truth is what makes many rival hate united - he is the biggest facking liar in the business!

Crouch fouls is hardly a lie at the same time it's not the full story either. Jones is still young and naive and will soon learn then when you play against the Crouch's in football just get close to 'em and when they jump over the top of you you simply fall over. It was poor defending also, why was Jones, our shortest defender, marking Crouch? Ferdinand or Fletcher should've picked him up. It's teams like Stoke where we miss the rock at the back Vidic.

When it comes to Crouch it's not the jumping all over defenders that aggrieves me, as most refs eventually penalise him for it. It's his habit of going to ground every time he tussles with an opposition player that grinds my gears!

I completely agree fcb but it's not just Crouch who does that, there's so many strikers who like to dish it out and make sure their presence is felt yet fall like a sack of 5h1t when they recieve the slightest knock. Bolton's Davies is one of the worst for it, Drogba isn't much better either.

Drogba doesn't need to be touched to fall over though!
