If we had of signed jerome and crouch there would have been a meltdown on here.
Cos they will fit right in to the way they play.
They're showing ambition.
How?by signing a has been and a never will be.
Twelve million quid for a 30 year old who doesn't want to be there isn't ambition, it's stupidity. Crouch tried every trick in the book not to go.
They've strengthened and increased the squad.
well like the bloke above says, he suits their style, if you just lump it up everytime, the big fella is just perfect for them! FAIR PLAYS I reckon.
Stick Crouch in front of the keeper for the long throws into the box. I can see them being very effective indeed. Not at all pretty but effective. They're going to be a very hard team to play against. Jerome is awful though.
Like i said yesterday when we were still in for him he isnt really a target man and is pretty average for a man his size in the air.
would be true if he could head a ball
There were plenty on here yesterday happy that we were linked with Crouch.
Were there fuck the ratio must have been ten to one with people hoping we didnt sign him.
I put it on another thread. Stoke have been after him for weeks and weeks, so it's not like it came out of the blue. He then waited til mid-afternoon to travel up there, a two hour journey which mysteriously took about five hours, then 'he wasn't sure', then he 'wants to sign but still financial issues with Spurs' late on. They were still scrabbling about at the deadline to get it done.
You don't leave it that late, risking not going, if you want to go. Abby will be going beserk
like threepenny bit heed Gyan, I s'pose
I would have been happy with Crouch, not paying £12m like but would have been happy with him. Not sure about Cameron Jerome like.
Alround NB is a better aquisition.
Sky showing stats that show he's the 3rd highest scorer since 2006 by scoring with his head. He's behind T.Cahill and Kenwyne Jones
The place was almost suicidal. And that was with the price at 10m. I can only imagine how bad it would have been on here if we'd paid 12m for him.
I'm astonished at how good Levy is. He's managed to get 12m out of a 30 year old player they didnt want anymore.
There's a story in today's papers saying that he was told he wouldn't be in Spurs 25 man squad either!
I dont think Jerome is that bad a player tbh. Quick and busy and thus a decent 'alternative' to any side as a squad man
