The article focuses on Bruce Crouch, father of English soccer player Peter Crouch, who was prevalent in much of the English press while supporting his son during the 2006 world Cup in Germany. The Daily Mirror's Oliver Holt wrote in his article that it was "impossible not to like" Bruce and his wife Jane. Holt even avoided calling Peter a "beanpole" striker to avoid upsetting his parents. Bruce enjoyed a lot along with players' wives and girlfriends during the tournament. However, he was a bit upset over the alleged actions of his son's girlfriend, Abigail Clancy.
