Crouchy’s bar dwarf nightmare

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

LANKY foot­baller Peter Crouch has ad­mit­ted he has ter­ri­fy­ing night­mares where he’s a DWARF!

The Stoke striker stands tall at a whopping 6ft 8in.

But bean­pole Crouchy, 31, says he is plagued by bizarre dreams where he’s a short-arse midget.

The Eng­land for­ward re­vealed: “About three years ago I started hav­ing this dream about be­ing a dwarf.

“I was walk­ing around a bar and I couldn’t see any­thing.

“And no­body could see me! It was com­pletely sur­real.

“It started when a lot was be­ing made of my height at the time.

“I guess some­thing in my brain just clicked and went the other way in the dream.

“It was a to­tally dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive, I can tell you.

“I’d wake up re­lieved to be tall, and thank­ful for what God gave me.” I LOVE horse rac­ing and I think the Chel­tenham Fes­ti­val is the most ex­cit­ing sports week of the year!

By the time you read this I should be at the course be­cause it’s Ladies Day and I’ll be there in my posh­est frock. I might have a glass or two of cham­pagne but I won’t be hav­ing too much be­cause I’m there to watch the rac­ing, not mess about.

The big race of the day is the Queen Mother Chase and I think my money will be on Kauto Star, Ruby Walsh is rid­ing him and he’s al­ways been a lucky jockey for me.

If you’re watch­ing it on the telly keep an eye out for me, you might see me cheer­ing in the crowd!

Q: WHAT is the dif­fer­ence be­tween a fox

and a dog? A: Four pints

of Stella!
