The international career of Peter Crouch appears to be coming to an end, well under Fabio Capello anyway...
Making a 'rash decision' over his international future is not something that Crouch wants to do and actually retiring from Three Lions duty is not something I think he will do?
The Spurs man thinks he has been 'cruelly treated' by Capello although knows that the Italian is not one for 'putting an arm around a player' or 'explaining his decision' so its not anything personal against him as such.
Whilst I do not think he will call time on his international career, talking in The Sun, he makes it pretty clear that he thinks his days are numbered under Capello's reign: 'it's not for me to tell Fabio Capello how to manage. He's had a tremendous amount of success working his way.
'It's pretty obvious the manager has made his decision and if I'm not his cup of tea, that's something I just have to live with.
'It doesn't look great for me. If I couldn't get into this squad I might struggle when Wayne Rooney, Jermain Defoe and Andy Carroll are back.
'But I do feel I've been slightly unfairly treated because I've done well for England when given the opportunities.'
22 goals in 42 internationals is a good return in anybodies book and for him not to even make the bench last weekend was a real surprise, to say the least.
With so many other options out it does pretty much tell you all you need to know about what the manager thinks of you really...
The Spurs man is very much a 'marmite player' as you either love him or hate him!
I have always been a fan of the big mans and think that there is much more to him than people think and he is often given an injustice to the quality that he does posses.
The treatment given to him, and others, by Capello seems to have been wrong and his alienating of people seems to be causing more harm than good, next summer cannot come soon enough for me as we can then bring in someone new - lets hope the FA make a better decision next time round and if they can see things starting to go belly up they do not make the ridiculous decision to hand the manager a new lucrative contract before he really proves anything!
