Rumours doing the rounds yesterday suggested Peter Crouch was of serious interest to Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier.

We're not sure how true these rumours are, but we've seen one today suggesting he would pay £10 million for him, so somebody somewhere has been sniffing the glue and cone up with a figure today.

We can't really see this happening at the moment, not after Makoun and Bent signing, but we like Peter Crouch and if he wants to come back to Villa Park and get a proper chance this time, we'd welcome him back. He never got it the first time around and David O'Leary was a fool, a fool we tell you, to let him go.

But a fool is what a fool does and David O'Leary didn't disappoint.
