How Did We Never Notice Glenn Whelan In One Of Peter Crouch's Famous Tweets!?

Back in January 2015, Peter Crouch sent out a tweet that spread around the internet like wildfire.

The big Stoke striker was in Dubai, and after chatting to a jockey by the name of Nathan Alison he decided to take the photo op and poke fun at the size difference between the two.

The result was one of the most famous Crouchy moments, up there with claiming that he would be 'a virgin' if he wasn't a footballer, and claiming the FIFA corruption scandal was why he wasn't nominated for the Ballon D'Or.

But in a video for Soccer AM where he looks back on his old tweets, Crouchy dropped a bomb that we couldn't believe we missed. In a post that proved quite popular on this site when we shared it... We never noticed the Dublin head on Glenn Whelan in the background.


There he is. How did we fail to notice that... Shocking.

Here's what Crouchy had to say on that fantastic photo.

We're at the races in Dubai actually, at a race night, and I'm standing next to one of the jockeys.

I've just tweeted 'Perhaps I shouldn't stand next to jockeys', for obvious reasons, myself and him... Don't look great together.

He was a particularly small jockey though, to be fair, but that's Glenn Whelan behind me there and he's still towering over him.

It was a cracking tweet, to be fair, just look at how much Pepe Reina loved it:



You can watch Crouchy looking back over his twitter highlights with Tubes below, and it's well worth it, the man is fantastic craic.

A prolific tweeter, who knows how many of his comedy moments we missed Glenn Whelan in...
