Well, I think most will agree with me, Robbie Keane looked a bit rubbish yesterday?!?!?!?!
Ha...! Cut above pretty much anyone else on the pitch wasn`t he? Knows where to pass, creates space, makes the right moves and most importantly, he knows exactly where the goal is.
Shame we didn`t get him a decade ago. Oh, by the way, a myth buster. Doug Ellis didn`t stop the move over £500k. Every time John Gregory went to watch him at Wolves, he wasn`t impressing and as JG said later, he wasn`t the only PL manager to miss out on him as he obviously moved abroad.
Damn, could have been a legend!
I do so hate these loans though, he`ll break our hearts when he leaves I think. He was our best player by far in my ever so humble and then you sort of know, he`s off again. With that said, I think his goals might just have turned our season. If we`d lost, we would have gone to 15th and I`d have put money on us being in a rest of season long relegation battle. What would worry me is the teams around and abouts the bottom 6 are used to battling down there, our lot aren`t.
Two outstanding goals by Keane. If only we could keep him!
Talking about that, Alex McLeish would also like that! He told http://www.sundaymercury.net/
He would love the 31-year-old to stay.
"It is up to Robbie. If he feels he wants to come back, I`m sure there would be some welcoming arms. I would like to think we`d be interested."
However Robbie did say last week that he likes the lifestyle in the USA and he isn`t looking to move back to the PL permanently.
Still think, Premiership wide, that the loan system is just wrong and the rules should not have been changed, however this one loan has - it seems - got us out of jail and hey, we`ve actually seen a true quality player on the pitch, first time in a long time we`ve had a player who you feel can score from anywhere isn`t it?! Just shows the other strikers (hopefully) if you shoot, you might just score!
