Should We Bother With Crouch....Again?
He travelled to Sunderland to look at the Stadium of Light and the academy but dramatically turned us down for a move to London.
He was labelled as 'greedy' by many Sunderland fan and even laughed at by owner Ellis Short for chosing Spurs over Sunderland because of location and his girlfriends wishes.
Do we really want Crouch at our club if he is available?
I would much prefer to target Jermain Defoe who, although has had a poor last season, is capable of being the next Darren Bent on Wearside.
Steve Bruce will give Defoe the time to develop under a new team and adapt to the fans expectations but with Crouch I just feel his heart would not be in it from the start.
It is great to see Sunderland linked to two classy strikers and hopefully we can fill the gap that Bent left but we should move on past Crouch and target someone more committed to the team and cause.
