    Crouch - not a top five Premiere team player in my book, Zenden runs around like a headless chicken, and John O Shea is fast becoming a young David May Overated squad player who might pick up the occasional medal at a team that does well but not the sort to add anything to a team.

    I thought Morientes was the big name striker???

    He was another one that Graham Taylor signed for Villa. And who was shit. :rolleyes:

    There's some real crap in the England squad fringes

    If AC Milan had won the Champions League...would they be getting out the chequebook for Crouch?

    Infact would any European side who want to be taken seriously buy him?

    (Visions of Shepherd and Souness on BE flight to Southampton...fuck)

    Indeed he is....but if, as I suggested, if Baros (and maybe Cisse) leaves then Mozza would be the only 'big' striker and at least one more (not Crouch) would be required.

    Have to disagree with you about O'Shea. Every team needs a slim Peter Kaye lookalike.

    Cisse is going nowhere. Baros will be off though. O'Shea is crap. Crouch is not good enough for us.

    Next?

    benitez must like having a big battering ram up front to be able to cope on his own and bring others into play, didn't he have carew up front with valencia ? I still dont really approve of crouch, but i'd trust Rafa's knowledge. Mintal or Luque would be more exciting

    Lucque is today's rumour.

    Have to agree with the syscraper on this that Cisse will be going no where but as you say Baros will be off and that will leave a gap.But what sort of striker? You can have Kezman or Carlton Cole in exchange for Alonso.

    O'Shea :D

    Yep, Valencia had Carew upfront when they were successful - although it should be pointed out that when they won the league they had scored less goals than 2 of the relegated teams and bored their way to the title.

    Made George Graham's Arsenal team looking like Brazil 1970 :D

    Luque might work, but he's not exactly set La Liga alight...wouldn't even rate him in the top 10 strikers in the league from what i've seen. Dunno why Rafa doesn't go for Tamudo if he insists on buying a spaniard, or even Saviola...he's not happy at Monaco and could be pretty handy

    It gets better. Southampton have rejected the bid but Liverpool are expected to offer £6.5 million today. They've denied interest in Luque but kept their mouths shut about Crouch! :D:D:D:D

    Thing is, I reckon Crouch would be a better bet than Luque :eek: No, really...he's got experience of the league and can unsettle defenders. I can't see Luque and Morientes/Cisse working as a partnership.

    Certainly you'd think Morientes - Cisse would be the preferred starting line up but Crouch on the bench would be handy. But £7m? I don't think so...you could get Saviola or Raul Tamado for that!
