      with one year left on his contract, he'll be pretty much worthless by Christmas......take 9 or 10 million, Rafa.

      Agree.  No point dicking about over the odd one or two million.  He's never going to be prolific for us.  Although we should have made more of a profit on him after establishing him at international level but thats the fault of the idiots sorting out the contracts at Anfield.  Sorry Rick.

      He may not be prolific or the worlds best striker but he sure as hell has given us some sweet things to remember. Such as the Ass-nal hat-trick and the over head kicks

      Agent - Gunners consider Crouch
      Santa Cruz and Gomez also mooted as Adebayor replacements


      Super agent Vincenzo Morabito claims Arsenal are considering Peter Crouch as a possible replacement for Emmanuel Adebayor.

      Barcelona and Milan are battling to persuade the Gunners to cash in on Adebayor, with a fee in excess of £30million mooted for the Togo striker.

      Milan have confirmed the former Monaco forward is their top target, but have acknowledged the difficulty in tempting Arsenal to sell.

      Morabito, who is among the agents working on the deal for the Italian giants, appears optimistic that Adebayor will move to the San Siro.

      However, Morabito claims Arsenal will not sanction the transfer until Arsene Wenger has brought in a replacement.

      Optimistic

      Liverpool striker Crouch is among Wenger's targets, according to Morabito, along with Blackburn Rovers' Roque Santa Cruz and Stuttgart frontman Mario Gomez.

      "Arsenal are looking for Adebayor's replacement," Morabito told Italian TV show Studio Sport.

      "The names being talked about are Peter Crouch, Blackburn striker Roque Santa Cruz and Germany forward Mario Gomez.

      "Until that search is over, the negotiations won't reach the final stage, but I am fairly optimistic.

      "What are the chances of Adebayor joining Milan? At this stage, we are at 70 per cent to 80 per cent."

      Fully agree that's not much of a turnaround but probably the most we can expect to get for him, anything else would be a bonus but Crouch needs regular starts.

      Heard on Radio Merseyside this morning that Man City are also showing an interest.

      As he is obviously not going to sign a new contract then all I can say is the more the merrier.

      A bidding war would do our transfer kitty no harm at all.

      Man City have wanted him for a while now but when they get linked with the likes of Ronahdinho you tend to think Crouch just won't be enough for them.

      With plenty of clubs now showing interest (Pompey, Spurs, Arsenal, Man City, etc), maybe we could hope for as much as £11-12 million? This might be a little optimistic, but it seems like Rafa did the right thing turning down Harry's £9 million bid... It'd be nice to see him go for a decent sum because he's well worth it IMO.

      All astute observations...
      I don't think that 12 million is beyond the realms of possibility, especially when we have 4 or 5 clubs expressing an interest?

      Peter Crouch scored twice as Portsmouth coasted to 4-1 win over nearby neighbours Bournemouth on Monday, while Robbie Fowler made his Blackburn debut when Rovers crashed to a 3-1 friendly defeat to Bundesliga newcomers 1899 Hoffenheim.

      Crouch’s double – his first goals since signing from Liverpool – were bookended by strikes from Sulley Muntari and Jermain Defoe, with Brett Pitman on the scoresheet for the hosts.

      A disappointing evening for Paul Ince was compounded by a first-half injury to Morten Gamst Pedersen.
      Hoffenheim went ahead through Christoph Janker early in the second half, but saw their lead disappear through Benni McCarthy’s 63rd minute volley.
      A Matthias Jaissle header and Janker’s second of the game gave victory to Hoffenheim.

      North of the border, Derek Young’s strike just before half-time was enough to give Aberdeen victory over Brechin.
      Partick Thistle were also in action but did not fare so well, with Burnley of The Championship scraping a slender 1-0 win thanks to Joey Gudjonsson’s goal on the stroke of half-time.

      The Clarets’ fellow second-tier side Crystal Palace were also in action, breezing to a 4-0 win over Tavistock.
      Calvin Andrew’s double, a Ben Watson strike and an own goal were enough to hand victory to Neil Warnock’s side.

      I reckon I'm over it now. I think I would have been gutted if he'd played a lot more games last season and brought more goals.

      I have no doubt he'll bang a few goals in for Pompey this coming season. Hopefully none against us though. He's an enemy now.  ;)

      Im over him leaving and although I still want him to do well and score goals at pompey I hope he does bad against us because when we play pompey he is just another player for the opposition and then after the game I will hope he does well again

      Feel strongly that he is gonna be a top three strikers this season. Still pissed we created a situation that made it imperative that he left, but more pissed that he opted to leave instead of fighting for the top striker spot.

      I've watched when he played in the field during his games. He is the best striker for me because the movement and speed of his accuracy were amazing. I definitely enjoyed watching Crouch videos and he inspired me a lot since I am a newbie here.

      Always liked him.

      Brings a different style of play to our team because he can hold the ball and is probably one of the few players to effcectively win a aeriel duel.

      Find it weird for some reason Crouchie has now played more League games for Stoke than is and Spurs combined.
