Crouch says time Stoke ended Euro hangover hoodoo
Stoke's record in their league matches following Europa League fixtures currently reads played three, lost three, but Crouch is confident that can change.
He said: "I don't think there's any reason why we can't do well in Europe and keep up our league form, although it does mean you are playing one hell of a lot of games.
"We've got a good squad now, we have fresh faces to bring in and can change things around.
"We have good players on the bench these days, which is a sign of how far the club has come. So we've got no excuse when we go to play Bolton."
