Football is a team game. Of course I would like to see our strikers banging them in day in day out, but you must look at the team as a whole. Owen is a great goal scorer, there is no doubt about it and he has proven his ability in Real, England and now Newcastle. But as team player, I think Crouch is a far better player. With a guy like him upfront, the team looks dangerous whenever a corner,free kick or just a steaming pass gets into the box. I don't know about you, I prefer to spend 7m on Crouch than 17m on Owen, period.
