Nothing sums up England's complete and utter crapness better than the fact that Peter Crouch, scorer of just 11 goals in 42 games for Liverpool this season, is a freakin' regular for the national squad.
Yes, he has a "good touch for a big man (TM)". Sometimes. And then other times, as in the picture at left (taken during the first half of the T & T match), he gets the ball in the clear, in the six yard box, and takes a shot so awful that it actually bisected a line running from the post to the corner flag.
And before anyone tries mentioning his 82nd minute goal...it was a foul, OK? Shouldn't have counted.
Make that 40 years of hurt....
