A Keane Return In January?

A Keane Return In January?

Paul Lambert has said he won't shy away from experienced loans if they can adjust to the group, because the team is the most important thing in his mind.

Speaking to the Birmingham Mail the subject of Robbie Keane came up and loans in general:

'When January gets closer I'll start to think about things. Is it something I would go for? I'm not sure because the team is the most important thing for me. If they fit in and have the desire to do it, and want to do it, and fit in with the group then I will look at it. Robbie is a brilliant player and has been over the years. Would I sign experienced players? It's not something I'll turn away from.'

Keane was a revelation for us last time round, but I'm still not fond of short term signings that mainly benefit another. If we could get Robbie on a permanent deal I think he'd be an asset to us, and be somebody who the youngsters could learn lots from.

But without taking away his goals from last season, where might Weimann be had he have had those games under his belt?

As Lambert says though:

'This club is too big to be about a few individuals, it's about the team.'

And that includes not holding back potential stars.

not sure, I don't like loans, but I do think his goals, especially v Wolves last season, kept us up. If we'd lost that game especially, I think we'd gone.

I'd definately go for him, loan or permanent. Hs experience, his eagerness would be infectious, specially this season with us having so many youngsters in and around the squad, they'd learn from him. He is just the role model youngsters need.

Yes from me too, although I'd rather a permanent deal, I think he'd be an asset to the squad for a couple of years.

Same here. I am not keen on loan deals however Robbie did a lot to help keep Villa up last season. He could make the difference and his experience will be a big help. He isn't on loan from another English club so I would go for it. It will help out with the young one's who are 'tired' and give them a chance to recuperate for season run in

Lampard rumoured to be heading to LA Galaxy in the summer, and with US teams only being allowed to have 3 EU players in the team could this be an opportunity for him to move here permanently?
