It's no surprise that everyone is looking up to Peter Crouch, who is leading the Stoke City players' private Fantasy Football league. But two of his teammates are hoping the big man will help them close the gap at the top … while not helping himself.Crouch hasn't picked himself in one of his three strike options – going instead with Lukaku, Defoe and Costa – but he is in the line-ups of Joe Allen and Jack Butland after returning to Mark Hughes's team with four goals in eight...

Peter Crouch, fresh from doing his coaching badges last summer, has done his management credentials no harm this season at the same time as proving he is far from done on the pitch.Crouch is top of the Stoke players' 12-man private Fantasy Football League – but more than that, he's not far away from being the best Stoke fan taking part in the game this season and he is right up in the top one per cent of all nearly 4.4 million managers around the world.But the 36-year-old striker, who has...

Can you spot the Stoke player lurking in the bushes?

Here is Peter Crouch posting a photograph from the golf course of a Stoke City player under cover. It is obviously easier for some Potters to hide behind tall thin trees than others. Where's Wally? he asked. Wolfsburg II in the Regionalliga Nord until the end of the season, came the witty replies.

Stoke star Peter Crouch prepared to be patient with Ramadan Sobhi

Patient Peter Crouch is seeing signs Ramadan Sobhi has the right qualities to be a big hit in the Premier League. Winger Ramadan has been eased into life in England by Mark Hughes after joining from Egyptian champions Al Ahly last summer. He may be a full international but Crouch admits it can still take anyone time to find their feet in such a different environment. But the 20-year-old was influential in a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace last time out and is being tipped for a bigger role in...

Peter Crouch is the latest member of the Ramadan Sobhi fan club... but he is concerned about the young winger. Stoke's veteran front man is in no doubt Ramadan is a future star, but he is pleading that he is given time to develop into the player he can be.Still looking to the future, Sentinel columnist Robbie Earle reckons signing Bruno Martins Indi is a must for the Potters. But it seems an unlikely factor could yet scupper a permanent move for the Dutchman... his love of the sea!Julien Ngoy...

Stoke striker Peter Crouch delighted to see City earn reward

Peter Crouch breathed a sigh of relief that Stoke were not made to pay for their first half profligacy and got the win over Crystal Palace.Stoke pushed hard for a breakthrough as it got nearer half time and Joe Allen headed a decent chance over before Bruno Martins Indi had an effort cleared off the line.It was more even after the interval but that's when Stoke took their moment, with what Sam Allardyce was keen to point was their only shot of target in the second half.Read more: Stoke City 1...

Tony Pulis couldn't resist a wee little dig at Saido Berahino as he shone the light on a rather taller figure ahead of the big Midlands derby at The Hawthorns.Pulis, the man signing Crouch for £10m from Tottenham in 2011, was among those applauding the big fella's achievement at reaching a century of Premier League goals this week.That leaves Crouch in pole position to lead Stoke's attack at Albion alongside Berahino, at some stage in the afternoon, if he is called from the bench on his...

Mike Pejic: I applaud a more direct Stoke City

This week confirmed to everybody that there's been a gear shift in the footballing philosophy of Mark Hughes.Gone is the Spanish-inspired policy of building from the back more often than not, and in comes a more direct approach to accommodate Peter Crouch's presence.It's a change to be welcomed, I believe, just as long as that more direct play is done with quality.It certainly was the other night against Everton when the decision-making was largely spot on in terms of when to hit Crouch...
