Peter Crouch has painfully spelled out his emotions as Stoke City’s relegation has been confirmed. The normally happy-go-lucky striker has been anything but as the Potters have fallen out of the Premier League, admitting the feeling at full-time last weekend was “among the worst he had known in 20 years as a footballer”. They still have one more game to play, however, and a heavy defeat at Swansea combined with a big win for Manchester City at Southampton could also send Mark Hughes down. There are some with a Stoke leaning who think their old manager and his lingering number two Mark Bowen might deserve that on their CV. But Crouch said: “You can get some crazy results on the final day and I have heard it said that we would be happy to get trounced by Swansea if it led to them staying up and Southampton going down, given that Mark is now their manager after leaving us in January. “Let me assure you nothing could be further from the truth.

Could Peter Crouch quit the Potters if they are relegated? The veteran striker has admitted he would have to reassess his future if the Potters were to go down. The 37-year-old signed a one-year extension in November that ties him to the club until 2019.

I signed for another year because I thought we would be in the Premier League. It didn't even enter my head that we wouldn't be.” The Potters play Crystal Palace in a lunchtime kick-off knowing only a win will do, and Crouch added: “From a personal point of view, it would be a real shame to leave this club. For me, it's about playing these two games and everything else will take care of itself in the summer." Several Stoke players have now admitted that the summer will be a time to reassess their futures if Stoke were to be relegated, but Crouch … [Read more...] about Peter Crouch calls for inquest into Stoke City’s season of woe
