It’s fair to say that Peter Crouch is one of the funniest - if not *the* funniest - footballers on Twitter.
Seriously, if you’re on Twitter and don’t follow the big man, then do yourselves a favour and change that immediately. You won’t regret it.
Crouch possesses a wicked sense of humour and, unlike some top-level footballers, is able to laugh at himself. His self-deprecating humour is one of the reasons many football fans love him.
One thing’s for sure: he won’t be short of media work when he finally hangs up his boots. If he doesn’t become a coach, it’s safe to assume he’ll be on our TV screens in one form or another for many years to come.
But Crouch is obviously much more than a social media comedian. The Stoke City striker, who is now in the autumn of his career as a professional footballer, is one of only 26 players to score over 100 goals in the Premier League.
One of his 106 Premier League goals came in Tottenham’s 9-1 victory over Wigan Athletic, which happened on this day back in 2009.
Tottenham fans remember the 9-1 win v Wigan
The Tottenham-fan run Twitter account @TalkingTHFC posted a celebratory throwback tweet about that memorable match at White Hart Lane, pointing out that Jermain Defoe scored five of the goals in the rout.
Crouch's funny response
This prompted a typically amusing tweet from Crouch, who was in no mood to praise his former teammate.
Crouchy, tongue-in-cheek of course, replied: “Should have squared at least 3 of the 5 !!!!!”
Tottenham fans love Crouch's reply
And needless to say, Tottenham fans found his tweet very funny.
