Peter Crouch, Tom Fordyce and Chris Stark bring you their guide to being a professional footballer. #backstronger

    That Tackles Episode

    That Tackles Episode

    The art of tackling is one celebrated on these shores more than anywhere else, so how do Premier League stars perfect it? The boys analyse Crouchy’s ‘red mist’, discuss whether Paul Scholes deserved his reputation for bad tackling and the ‘Great Shinpad Debate’ rears its head again. There’s a tale involving rubber gloves, a mouse and some curtains plus speculation about Arsene Wenger in a Blackburn bush.

    That Holidays Episode

    That Holidays Episode

    Diving into the murky infinity pool that is footballers and their holidays, the boys make a remarkable discovery about Crouchy’s linguistic skills before uncovering unsettling rumours about David Moyes, Neil Diamond and Louis Saha’s penchant for mixed doubles. An extraordinary woman pulls off an extraordinary trick and a chance dip into Crouchy’s phone contacts reveals more than could possibly be expected.

    That Captains Episode

    What makes a great leader of a sporting team? As they attempt to find the answers, the boys stumble into a world of punitive fines, tedious logistics and general outsourcing to Gary Neville. There are surprise appearances from football’s own Dre and a mysterious brown-noser known only as Parched, while the unveiling of a new pod-listeners’ standardised greeting raises significant logistical concerns.

    That Retirement Episode

    That Retirement Episode

    Delighted to be #backstronger, the boys gather to chew over Crouchy’s retirement from actual football, and discover his secret fish-buying obsession as well as the true meaning of a Double-Dyche.

    Meanwhile a discussion on the meaning of smell gets dangerously out of hand, while Peter makes a rash promise involving Andy Murray’s knighthood. It's all the insight you've been missing, but with a lighter flavour.

    That Planning Meeting

    In this brief taster of what is to follow, the boys get back together to plan the imminent arrival of Series Three, only to quickly realise that quality planning is well outside their remit. Chris introduces a problematic idea involving ladies’ toilets, Tom comes up with a pod-based alternative to New Year’s Eve and Crouchy promises something he may not be able to deliver.

    That Crouchfest Episode

    To the astonishment of all involved, the long-awaited and frequently doubted Crouchfest actually comes to fruition, and in ways no-one could ever imagine. Join almost 3,000 happy pod listeners as Crouchy, Tom and Chris put on a show at a sold-out O2 in London that makes the Samrat Christmas special look like a poetry reading in Ealing library. We have Liam Gallagher and a host of superstars from the world of music, a coachload of referees, London’s biggest round of drinks and a man dressed as Tony Pulis. Nothing in the world of That Peter Crouch Podcast will be quite the same ever again.

Back stronger? #keepsgettingstronger

Absolutely cracking podcast. Humour, insight and honesty regarding the world of a footballer and the fans! I never thought I would be able to fill the void left by Flintoff. Savage and the Ping Pong guy, but this podcast fills said void AND surpasses it! Keep it up and hoping for many, many more!
