What Happens If Peter Crouch Joins Chelsea On Football Manager
Football Manager never gets anything wrong. Lots of people think that Chelsea signing Peter Crouch would be ridiculous. So the only way to find out if they're right is ask Football Manager right?
How did we ever get to the point where Chelsea would be lining up a move for Peter Crouch?
There's no doubt that on his day Crouchie can still cause problems for anyone but aged 36, and turning 37 before the end of the transfer window, and not even starting every week for Stoke the idea of him joining Chelsea seems implausible.

This is the same side that were the originators of the oil rich owner signing the best players in the world for more money than they could have previously dreamt of possessing surely a move for a player like Crouch would be nothing short of desperate.
But in a world where austerity has hit Roman Abramovich's wallet, Alvaro Morata has stopped scoring and Michy Batshuayi has done something wrong to Antonio Conte that's where we find ourselves.
So what exactly would happen if Crouch joined Chelsea. Well one Football Manager player decided to find out:
Now it seems like on this version of reality Crouch actually moved to Stamford Bridge at the beginning of the 2017/18 season and ended up playing in League 1 before the season was out.
2 goals in eight games with a decent average rating in games for the Blues it seems like that wasn't enough for Antonio Conte in the first half of the season with the Italian sending his new acquisition out on loan.
The former Liverpool striker drops down not one but two tiers to join Blackburn Rovers on loan where his record isn't as good as it was in the Premier League, clearly his hearts not in it, but he does help them to the League One title and promotion.
It's not a particularly good ending to the former England players career, despite the League One title, Chelsea go on to win the league without him and then he is released.
It seems the man who scored 22 goals in his international career then calls it a day with his playing career, soon becoming a coach with Middlesbrough's under 18s.
Looks like it's not a good idea Peter!
