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.

But it was too long a time for me to be sitting around waiting for pre-season and I wanted to start playing again.' From the Independent
