5 LEAGUE goals. You know, because the post is talking about our LEAGUE performance. Pav can't score consistently in the LEAGUE because he is not good enough. Sure he can score against poor opposition in the cup but who cares about that when we are talking about the LEAGUE.
Poor teams? How many did Keano, Defoe and Crouch score against Stoke, Wolves, and Hull? Or are those teams also title contenders or perhaps they are not on you argument list of "poor opposition"?
Explain your statement in words that make any sense whatsoever.
You can't have it both ways, and ineed your argument is just full of holes regarding Pav. He's a far more fluent striker, with more skills than Crouch.
I remarked on here when the signing of Crouch was about to go thriugh that the ball wouldn't be rolling along the green stuff much when Crouch was being selected and that's how it's turned out.
Torres, Rooney, Drogba, Fabregas are all "World Class" whereas Defoe, Keane and Crouch should not be mentioned in the same sentance. Why do you think Harry is after Nistleroy? It's bugger all to do with whether a side we play is good, poor, or average. Great goalscorers will score against any opposition but we have not had a single great goalscorer at Spurs since the Premier League was formed. Berbatov was perhaps the closest we had to very good all round goalscorer, but not a great one.
