Aston Villa have confirmed the loan signing of Robbie Keane
Video interview: www.avfc.co.uk
31-year-old Keane says on www.avfc.co.uk:
'I'm delighted to be back in the Premier League. This is only short-term, of course, but there has been a lot of speculation over the years linking my name to Villa and, finally, I'm here. I'm excited about it and I know I'll really enjoy my time here. It's only for two months but I will do my absolute best in these two months. "
Adding, "Villa is a great club, a club with a massive tradition and standing in the game and Villa Park is one of the finest stadiums I've ever played in. If selected to play on Saturday, I will genuinely be looking forward to it and I'll be excited to be involved again in Premier League action. I've been training with the players here for the past few days and it's been great but I'm not naive enough to think I'll just walk straight into the team."
I find this MLS player loan thing a total circus to be honest and see little profit in bringing in a striker we should/could have signed ten years ago at this stage and for just six games. I`m not well at the moment so maybe I`m just being miserable but if this is meant to 'lift the fans` as McLeish said the other day, then sorry, job not done. All this will do, if he is used, is de-motivate the player/s who have to move out of the team to accommodate him. Hey ho, not my money, not my decision. For me the Premier League should change the rules back to how they were and say no loans apart from in exceptional circumstances (ie when we hadn`t got a keeper to play and we loaned Kirally)
There, that is your dose of misery for the day, sorry, this is a joke to me! Hope he now scores the winner v Arsenal and has me laughing for other reasons
