Good news and bad news for naughty Peter Crouch
Crouch – bad week
Hey, remember five days ago? It was great. It was still summertime, everyone was a little bit younger, and Peter Crouch was widely regarded as one of the loveliest people not just in football, but in the whole wide world.
Now look at him – hunched over in caves like a supersized Gollum, lurking in the shadows like a football Nosferatu. He’s a broken man. And all because the lady loves getting paid to have sex.
Anyway, the tide might yet be turning once more for Crouchie, with some good news, and some bad news. Which would you like first?
Okay, the good news. As it turns out, not all women scorned have a hellish fury, with news from today’s Sun that Abbey Clancy might already be in the mood to forgive.
A “source” is quoted thusly:
“This is a real battle between her heart and her head. Her head is saying leave him but in her heart she wants to stay with him.
“She’s a very emotional person so it looks like her heart will win. If she does, he has to be the luckiest man on the planet.”
On the downside, just as the lanky one’s love life appears to be fit for repair, his professional life is heading towards the doldrums.
The word on the street is that Spurs definitely don’t want him, West Ham didn’t fancy him as part of a Scott Parker swapsie, and now only two clubs seem to be interested: Liverpool and Everton.
Both in Merseyside, where they don’t like having their best women cheated on by tall southern softies.
Where would you like to see Crouch end up? Let us know with a comment.
