Crouch

Peter Crouch

Of all of the England players, Crouch has probably had the most moves, playing for a total of 11 teams (including 3 loan outings). Crouch started his football career with Tottenham Hotspur as a youth player and moved to the senior squad, he stayed with the club as a senior for 2 years but failed to make any impact and was loaned out, eventually in 2000 he was sold to QPR (a team he supported as a child) for the princely sum of £60,000. He made quite an impact at QPR making 42 appearance and scoring 10 goals but his goals were not enough to stop QPR getting relegated and to make money they sold him to Portsmouth for £1.25 million, here he scored 18 goals out of 37 appearances and was then snapped up by Aston Villa for £5 million.

Although getting off to a good start with Villa, scoring t in his debut he failed to hold down a place and in a bid for first team action he moved to Norwich on loan helping them gain promotion. His time at Villa came to an end when he moved to Southampton for £2.5 million fee after only scoring 6 times in 37 games for Villa. His move to Southampton was moderately successful he scored 12 goals in 27 games but it failed to stop Southampton’s relegation and Crouch was again sold, this time to Liverpool for £7 million.

Crouch spent 3 seasons with Liverpool scoring 22 goals and making 85 appearances, he failed to score in his first 19 games for Liverpool but managed to gain some form helping Liverpool win vital matches and became Liverpool’s top goal scorer for the 2006/07 season. In 2008 Crouch returned to Portsmouth in a deal worth £11 million he made a further 38 appearance for Portsmouth scoring 11 goals and to some surprise he then rejoined Spurs in 2009 for £10 million.
