I wouldn’t be at all surprised that if this was to happen, a ‘deal’ has been done where Crouch could avoid training so that he can concentrate on his media work and podcasts. In Tigers deluded world he probably thinks the supporters will be completely won over by ‘The great Peter Crouch’ strolling around the football pitch for 60 mins every couple of weeks.
I actually think this would be a good move - if there's actually anything in it. Would need to be supplemented with another Striker who has different attributes though. A bit of pace and power wouldn't go amiss.
