Crouch: It’s probably one of the best nights I’ve been part of

Peter Crouch played down his role as matchwinner after Tottenham beat Manchester City 1-0.

The striker headed in the only goal of the game on 81 minutes to book Tottenham’s place in next season’s Champions League.

“I knew we had a fantastic squad and were capable of anything,” said Crouch.

“But the top four have been the top four for so many years because they’ve been the most consistent.

“For a club like us to break into the top four is a fantastic achievement. It’s probably one of the best nights I’ve been part of.”

“Throughout the course of the season the boys have been fantastic, the whole squad and we managed to get fourth but we still have to qualify,” he added.

“I was in the right place at the right time. The keeper made a good save and I was in the right place just to nod it home.

“On the balance of play we deserved to win tonight.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Well done Crouchie! You were my man of the match- held the ball well & brought others into play and harrassed the forwards. Defoe also had a good game in that he held ball well and was finding players with his flicks. A great save by Fulop denied him the goal- he deserved. But Crouchie had an awesome game just like the whole team- Top Marks!

  2. Well done Crouchie!
    For all his critics he actually came up trumps tonight and played his best game in a Spurs shirt. His dazzling foot skills in that second half had me believeing i was watching Messi on stilts.
    Still in a dreamland here!
    We always bottle it dont we!?

  3. Crouch was amazing, worked so hard and showed fantastic skill. The few fans who doubted him must feel so very stupid! Harry is a legend, what he has done in his first full season at Spurs is nothing short of a miracle. In fact since he took over the man has been out of this world. Amazing stuff. Where are the doubters? A few morons who said Arry out when we lost the odd game here and there…..? Fools. Honestly, what planet were these people on? Harry has got more points for us in the PL then ever before!!!! Hope he is with us for many more years. We love ya Harry!
