Peter Crouch reacts as Premier League cancel Tottenham and Liverpool fixtures

Peter Crouch has had his say on Twitter after the Premier League have cancelled this weekend’s round of matches.

Crouch’s former clubs Tottenham and Liverpool will not play this weekend and nor will any team right the way down the pyramid.

Even grassroots football has been called off this weekend, when Spurs were due to play Manchester City, with the Reds set to face Wolves.

Premier League cancelled

An official statement read: “At a meeting this morning, Premier League clubs paid tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. To honour her extraordinary life and contribution to the nation, and as a mark of respect, this weekend’s Premier League match round will be postponed, including Monday evening’s game.”

Richard Masters, Premier League Chief Executive, added: “We and our clubs would like to pay tribute to Her Majesty’s long and unwavering service to our country. As our longest-serving monarch, she has been an inspiration and leaves behind an incredible legacy following a life of dedication.  

“This is a tremendously sad time for not just the nation but also for the millions of people around the world who admired her, and we join together with all those in mourning her passing.”

Crouch had his say on Twitter, suggesting it was the wrong decision to call off the matches, and that a weekend of tributes at the game would have been better.

Crouch’s view contrasts with that of Spurs coach Ryan Mason, who has tweeted that he feels the cancellation is the right thing to do.

There will be those who argue both ways, but plenty of fans have made plans, transport arrangements and hotel bookings for matches which will now not take place.

It is a debate which will probably rumble on and we are awaiting confirmation about the next round of matches, which come before an international break.
