Bruce is trying to identify a player that has done it at the highest level and will make an immediate impact. Crouch ticks all the boxes and if anybody thinks he is not good enough for this club needs a slap to awaken them from their Mag induced slumber.
Of course we can attract an African that wants a leg up in the biggest and richest league. We can get a talented youngster to join the ranks and learn his trade at the top level. We can even sign the odd star player that just needs a new lease of life to get things kickstarted.
Signing a current England International (well that would end as soon as Capello found out) that has until very recently played regularly for a champions league side should be looked upon as progress, a sign the squad is strong enough to challenge in the top half.
Why the fuck do I shudder at the thought of the lanky streak of piss signing then? If it happens I will hope my head is right, until then my heart screams Noooooo!!!!!!
This makes no sense. Do you want Crouch, or not?
Either way, if we get him I think it'll be a great signing. Everyone cu
