NO NEED TO CROUCH....


Four years ago Peter Crouch was about to move to Aston Villa from Portsmouth. A move that did little for his career. Back then you would have been pelted with enough tranquilizer darts to take down a rhino and taken to the funny farm for a frontal lobotomy for even suggesting that Crouchy would get anywhere near the England squad. But, this summer, the nation's hopes may rest on Crouchy aka G.T.F.A.B.M. (Good Touch for a Big Man). I don't know what it is about the country's perception of tall players? Was Niall Quinn considered a gangling donkey? No, just gangling. What about the Czech Republic's Jan Koller, who has 42 goals in 68 caps, very good for a big man, or any man for that matter. Althouth it must be Hell buying trousers.

NB Presentation is still on for 17th June at the Rising Sun, Warsash.

as long as he don't try any of that funny penalty business, he could have decent world cup. crouch and owen can play together, and dont forget that crouch and walcott played in the same side at southampton**, so that's only good news for england!

the thought of the presentation is depressing me already....

** no they didnt motson you f***ing stupid c**t. x

It is hell buying trousers, but myself and the lads shop at high and mighty in town, the number of time Jan and i have bumped into one another in there! i've simply lost count.

You all know but BBQ, 1st July, be there for 1pm, so we can eat a little earlier and watch the food.

id would rather watch the football than the food to be honest. fields x

icemam said...

Good luck to crouchey, hope he scores some goals in the group stages so we can try and forget about Rooney!

Bring on Saturday!

i've missed you blog - i/m having burridge withdrawal symptons so looking forward to paul's bbq - when does pre-season start ??

Emerson Marks said...

Well Froudie, I've actually no idea when pre-season starts. I reckon the gaffer will be looking to renez-vous around mid to late July. Watch this space.....

Emerson Marks said...

**Apologies** That should have read rendez-vous.

fields said...

apology accepted. i wont be here for the start of pre-season in that case. im going on holiday with donna. oh yeah, and kristian.

i will also now be known as "fields" rather than "fielder" when i leave a comment. still want everyone to call me fielder in the real world tho. apart from you dykey. you call me sir fielder from now on.

Dykey said...

So where is everyone watching the footy on sat.

esp. you sir fielder

iceman said...

I'm attending a world cup party round my sisters house, lots of drink and lots of food, can't wait!

froudie said...

all welcome at my church building (looks like a fire station next to driving range in hedge end) for a big screen showing of the game
open from 1.30ish, bring own food and drink - no church stuff, just football

Emerson Marks said...

No, no Froudie. We need God on our side, so bring all the religous paraphernalia you can muster.

rossy said...
