Lanky striker gets sweary

The problem with pitchside microphones is that you never know what they might pick up. Take, for instance, Peter Crouch during Tottenham’s victory over Liverpool on Sunday.

Unable to bring a cross-field ball under the control of his famously good-touch-for-a-big-man, a frustrated Crouch indulged in a little industrial language as he booted the ball out of play.

Unfortunately for Sky Sports, the spot where Crouch loses possession is in very close proximity to one our their fluffy grey microphones. Andy Gray must have been blushing.
