    I've always admired Crouch. Tall and gangly but had good control and superb finishing.

    I felt his England career was cut short when he could have still done a job.

    This goal was a right cracker.

    Wouldn't mind tempting their lass ! He was once famously asked what he’d be if he want a footballer. Without hesitation he answered ‘single’ top lad.

    Remember seeing him against the Reds when he was on loan at QPR. It was in the Bassett era. I believe our defence handled his aerial threat quite well. It was the only time I've seen us get a point at Loftus Road. We have not won there in my considerable life time.

    How was Emile Heskey the preferred option?

    Always thought it a bit weird that such a tall guy like him is called Crouch.

    Reds get one small mention. He played well but we won. As it should be.
