Guest Gemmill Posted April 1, 2007 Share Posted April 1, 2007 Discuss. I don't know how anyone on here can turn their nose up at Crouch when he looks much the better player of the two. And before anyone starts, I'm not just on about his performance yesterday, or the fact he scored a hat trick and Martins played like Ali Dia's retarded brother. Aye he's lanky and he looks a bit funny, but he'd be a lot more use to us than Martins - his touch for the size of him puts Martins to shame. Martins' much vaunted pace is next to fucking useless because he's never even close to where he needs to be to take advantage of it, because his movement and reading of the game is so poor. I'm not "writing the lad off" which I'll no doubt be accused of, but I reckon he's massively overrated by a canny few on here, and could well still prove to be a canny expensive flop. I'm well aware he's done well in terms of goals for his first season in the Premiership, but I still think the jury is out on him in a big way in terms of consistency and overall contribution. Unless he works on his touch and his movement off the ball (and I wouldn't trust Roeder and his team of "coaches" to improve this at all), then it's always going to be a problem.
