GARRY Monk must come up with a plan to smother Peter Crouch if Swansea City are to succeed at Stoke this weekend. Because every time Crouch faces Swansea at the Britannia, he tends to enjoy himself. The 6ft 7in striker scored the Potters' goal when Swansea drew 1-1 in Staffordshire back in February. And he netted twice when Stoke beat Michael Laudrup's Swansea side at home in September 2012. There was more for the former England star to celebrate in February of that year, when his goal helped...

I HAVE heard people make jokes about Peter Crouch, about how he is tall and gangly and doesn't look like a footballer. But more often than not, it is Stoke City's former England striker who finishes up having the last laugh. Certainly, when Swansea City have gone to the Britannia in recent times, they have had a hard time handling Crouch. The 6ft 7in star has scored four Stoke goals in three home appearances against Swansea, and he will be the main danger once more for Garry Monk's team...

Stoke City: Peter Crouch wants to stay long term at Britannia

STOKE striker Peter Crouch says he would jump at the chance to put pent to paper on a new contract at the Britannia Stadium.Discussions over a possible new deal have not yet ventured beyond the tentative and the informal.But the former England star says he would love to play on after his current contract expires next summer.I'm happy here and I'd stay for a long time, he asserted. I'd really like to do that because I'm loving it at the minute, said Crouch, who was speaking at...

Stoke City: Peter Crouch not holding his breath on England recall

PETER Crouch will not be joining the growing calls of Crouchy for England any day soon.He's never closed the door on an international career boasting an enviable record of 22 goals in 42 appearances for his country.And he would quite clearly love one last crack for England at the age of 33.But the last of those international appearances was against France way back in 2010 – half-a-season before he joined Stoke – and so he's not holding his breath on a recall now.I...

PETER Crouch says he can fully understand why Raheem Sterling backed away from England action this week after claiming he felt tired. Stoke's former England striker, who bagged 22 goals in 42 internationals, says he has no issue with Sterling asking not to start England's Euro 2016 qualifier in Estonia on Monday. You can empathise with him, Crouch said of the young Liverpool star, because he is playing Champions League and playing for a top club. It's easy to go mad at...

I'VE got no idea what Peter Crouch was doing last night, he probably had his feet up in front of the telly watching England play San Marino.But I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks he should have had his boots on and been at Wembley himself.A lot has been said about the latest omission of Ryan Shawcross, and rightly so, but I don't think it should have been too late for Crouchy to get a recall.We're not exactly blessed with strikers right now, particularly with Daniel Sturridge injured, and...

JOHN O'Shea says Peter Crouch is still the glue that holds together Stoke, even if the Potters are embracing a new attacking approach. Sunderland defender appreciates Stoke are passing the ball shorter under Mark Hughes but insists they have not lost the cornerstone of the Tony Pulis era. Stoke can pass the ball as well, explained the Republic of Ireland centre-back, who will be tasked with marking Crouch tomorrow. But definitely when they've got Crouch in their team –...

Lou Macari: Peter Crouch decision looming large for Stoke City

STOKE City have a big decision to make about Peter Crouch in January because I'm convinced Harry Redknapp will come back in for him.Nothing is more certain because you can bet QPR will be in deep trouble by then and Crouch will be seen down there as their most viable saviour.Stoke then have three choices.Either they sell, keep Crouch until his contract runs out in the summer, or offer him a new deal to stop him becoming a free agent.The big fella is certainly doing the business right now and it...

Stoke City striker Peter Crouch unveils new 'crab' celeberation

POTTERS forward Peter Crouch was crowing after his winner against Newcastle United last night - and dedicated a new bird-inspired celebration to a friend. The 33-year-old striker is known for his entertaining dance moves, as his famous robot celebration shows, and after scoring the only goal in Stoke City's first home win of the season he unveiled his new 'crab' dance. After the match Crouch said he made the celebration for a Geordie friend. That's one of his moves, he said. He...
