Expand. What is the source of your disgust?
World Cup 2006. Trinidad in our first ever World Cup. Having gotten an unprecedented draw against Sweden, we all wondered what this group had in store for us.

Roll on the match against England, this stupid, lanky cnut grabbed hold of Brent Sancho’s dreadlocks and used it to elevate himself over him and score against us. Who knows how the match would have gone if he didn’t do that.

For that reason, I will always hate this cnut and wish him all the ill will in the world.

If you don't like Crouch you've got issues.

Legend!

If you analyse his career from a professional point of view, it was very sucessful: not only he made a living out of it, but he had enough quality to play on elite competitions all his career, even if it wasn't always at top clubs.

If he had the motivation, he could had made a season more in the PT league. His style fits the counter-attacking teams who urgently need a poacher to be there at the right time and do nothing more.

He was a good footballer though.

I know mate. I actually rated him and I think he did things well for his position: had a nice first touch, was brave and his shooting technique was better than most people give him credit for. I said the thing about "being a poacher and nothing more" due to his age.
