Robbie Keane - Yes Or No Poll Results

Robbie Keane - Yes Or No Poll Results

Bit of a struggle to think of polls at the moment so the last one simply asked, following all the press speculation linking us to him,

Robbie Keane?

In a straight yes and no vote the results were:

Yes please 65%
No thanks 35%

The link has again been repeated, this time as a makeweight for a £22million bid for Gabby. I can't see MON wanting to sell Gabby though, he seems very highly rated by the manager and features in pretty much every game.

Our latest poll asks if you would sell Gabby Agbonlahor who today has been linked with Spurs.

Spurs fans, it seems that a good few on Vital Spurs are saying they'd be glad to see Keane go, why is this? He always looks quality to me and is still only 29? Would you like Gabby (who I don't think will be sold!!)?

Looks like all the Spuz fans have invaded the vote because they want rid of the pointy shouty bloke. The only player in the prem to come close to rivalling G. Neville and Reo-Coker for moaning.

No thanks, see Albarnista, glensider and VotH above. How come 65% voted 'yes please'?? Yes 'please'? At the most it's 'yes, oh alright then, if he takes a huge drop in wages and comes for £5M and changes his attitude'.

This is a difficult one. Keane offers a lot of the attributes that we are seeking, but I'm far from convinced that at his age, and with his track record, that he's the answer to our problems. Deemed not good enough for a regular starting line-up in Harry Redknapp's Tottenham starting line-up, why then I wonder is he being suggested as a possible answer to our goal-shy strike force? With cash availability seemingly limited this summer, unless we complete a few sales of current fringe players first, I guess we are going to be somewhat limited as to the type of player we can attract to the club. Whether Robbie Keane is what we want or need though, is certainly open to debate.

I agree with most of what you say about Keane, but at the right price on the right wages he would be worth a shot. Also, his fitness has never been in question, he only flopped at LFC because Rafa lost out on buying Barry and panic bought Keane instead and then couldn't use him because he's such a negative is a big dhame we're years too late becvause he would've been worth it....Van Nistlerroy was older, more of a chip and a worse injury record when sold on to Hamburg(??) but he has proved a instinctive goal scorer and I feel in our young team we could take a worthwhile punt if, as Lesley Crowther used to say: THE PRICE IS RIIIIIIIGHT! Or Bellamy, anyone? Anyone?...

I'd rather have Kevin Doyle to be honest. Though saying all this, how many chances did the strikers actually miss the past season? Admittedly there were times they could have been in better positions when balls came in, but personally I feel our creativity was lacking. On top of that the midfield's goal ratio (with the exception of Milner) was pretty poor. Downing and Young SHOULD be scoring more than they did, plus losing out on Laursen really harmed our set piece threat (didn't he score 9 in half a season for us? If not it was certainly close to that). As much as the strikers should be scoring, the top teams in the country are expecting goals from other areas as well, something we really need to work on.

It is not our job to do the finance (as Fear tells me lol) but lets do the maths. He is almost 30 and this would be his last major contract. He would have absolutely no sell on value. His form, committment and ability at the top level is questionable to say the least. His wages would be in excess of the £60K a week (£3million a year to you and me) he reputedly gets at Spuds. Lets say for arguments sake that we buy a player who is obviously at the tail end of his career for a fee in the region of £7.5m (I am splitting the £5m and £10m price that is muted). His wages over 4 years (£12m minimum) + £7.5M transfer fee, signing on fees and agents fees at 15% of the contract (£3m) would mean a minimum total of £22m!! The figure with everything is likely to be nearer £25m. Roughly the same money that is being muted for Milner. Do Villa fans think that the money generated from Milner (who I don't think will be leaving and I have reasonable info on this) would be worth putting on Keane. I certainly don't. If M'ON can't find a better way of investing the clubs money then I would be very worried. Think of it as buying a car. If you had the choice of buying a brand new Merc that comes with a guarantee to give you trouble free motoring for several years and a resale value that you could put against its replacement. OR. A 10 year old Merc for lesser money, but with a history of trouble, breakdowns, high manintenance costs and performance not up to the newer model, and likely to be classed as an old banger with no resale value when you have run it into the ground. To me it is a no brainer. You steer clear of the trouble and the expense. If you had £25m and you wanted to get the best possible value from it, would you A) spend it on 4 young potential players who may double, treble or possibly increase your intial £25m tenfold or B) gamble it on an ageing player, with suspect ambition and a guarantee of absolutely no return?

i vote yes still a good footballer but no more than 5m

No, he's on the downhill slide. I'd rather see some gambles on young unknowns. They at least have a chance (however small) of becoming great for years to come. Keane has a 0 probability of being great for years to come. I doubt if he has 2 moderately good years left.
08/06/2010 15:35:00
Well when does carew ever complete a full season?
08/06/2010 15:30:00
As others have said, five years too late. Those who are in favour of signing him ...... do you intend putting 12 players on the pitch? Or who would you leave out?
