McLeish On Keane Boost

McLeish On Keane Boost

Alex McLeish has positively gushed over the possible loan signing of Robbie Keane.

Speaking to Sky Sports Eck said Keane would give the whole club a boost, including the fans.

I beg to differ.

'It will give everybody a lift, the team, the staff and most importantly the fans. You are talking about a guy who is at his peak. If he is not as quick as he was he can make up for it with the quickness in his head. The reports we are hearing say he is in tip top condition. He'll bring enthusiasm, he has leadership qualities and he can score a goal.'

And come the end of March when he's returned to LA Galaxy, whatever he can bring to us will be gone, and we'll not have invested in a player who can move forward with us.

So we'll be back to square one.

Fantastic.

It will be a sad day when Keane signs. Further proof that Villa have become a club where footballers go just before they die...or take up golf.

Just how out of touch and deluded can you be!? I'm sorry but for me it feels like only yesterday that we were at Wembley, spending £5m here and £12m there whilst legitimately challenging for CL places. Of course our current plight is better than doing a Leeds but reigning it in like we have hurts. It's possible that England's entire Euro 2012 starting midfield will have been at Villa in the last 4 years (Young, Barry, Milner and Downing) Imagine where we'd be if they were playing side by side in claret and blue (however idealistic that is!)? My point is the decline is huge, its fresh and it hurts. Loaning past-it and inexperienced players (if indeed anyone!) only highlights how far we have fallen so for goodness sake McCleish, don't crow about it and certainly don't tell me its given me a blinking lift, you imbecile! I predict your only accurate prediction will be that "he can score a goal." In 2 months I doubt he'll have scored many more!

Argh, I'm sorry but I'm really annoyed, I can't help it. You cannot immediately follow: "You are talking about a guy who is at his peak" with: "...he is not as quick as he was..." Thats like a second hand car dealer saying "Its brand new. Its only done 30,000 miles." AAARRRRRGGGHHHHHHH!!!

LOL, revolutionatlast. Keane has done more like 200'000 miles and needs a new turbo, tyres and basically everything else. PEAK FFS, ******** PEAK, how dare he utter such ******.

How out of touch is this bloke? To say it will give the fans a lift just proves he has no idea of what we expect at this club. I would say its had the opposite effect. Conplete waste of money. Ridiculous.

https://twitter.com/skysports_bryan/status/156456346131234816 About sums up why we missed out on the likes of Hughes and Benitez and end up with mcnugget. Signing Keane on loan just shows how far our ambition has fallen!!!
