I wonder if he’ll get Steven Reid’s spot in the changing rooms.

Crouch takes Vokes place on the bench and I’d rather have crouch in a 15 minute cameo than Vokes

We'll play Vydra off Wood/Barnes, or we'll play 451, or we'll start with Crouch.
By the way, why is everyone so sure that Crouch can't play 70+ minutes. Or a whole game even?

Lets face it the majority of you cry and moan because you like to cry and moan. Doesn't matter what is happening at any given time.

"I've never been too bothered about people's age, we had Michael Duff, a fantastic servant to this club, and also for myself, at 37, in the Premier League, so that's not an issue.”
Peter Crouch is 38, by which time even Duffer had called it a day!

Reckoner wrote:Insinuating that the club / board are just acting for their own personal financial gain just weakens any argument you might make about the detriment to the team from Vokes leaving. I think Vokes has been a great player but he has also been bitterly disappointed at not playing. We'll never know the full story about any of the transfer discussions (in or out) and on the face of things you may disagree with some decisions by the club / board. But they deserve trust and respect for everything they have achieved recently, not childish insinuations.

This is utterly bizarre.
Please someone tell me CFC started this...
