Reports linking Keane with City.

Recommended Posts

I heard it mentioned on the radio and there was an article in the Irish times today referring to City preparing a £20m bid for Keane. Didnt see anything mentioned here.

Hahaha this a wind up?

 

If Man City wanted Robbie Keane it would be the best thing ever. We'd get our money back and we'd have £20m to spend on a game breaker. I doubt it will happen like, but it's a comforting thought.

Keane is very much in the Kewel mould for me, I expected so much but he has just not delivered and I really doin't know if Rafa will perservere like he did with Kewel.

 

If the report is correct it would at least be nice that we get our money back for a change.

Summed up perfectly in the first reply

If we were to get our money back then I would be up for this. He has done nothing to prove to me that he is good enough to help us onto the next level and the right player to play alongside Torres.

Unlikely (even if City did bid) without a replacement, and with Heskey gone, I can't see who that would be at this stage. Keane will be here this season, and I imagine Redknapp will take him back to Spurs (where he can moan about competing fo a place with Defoe)

Think they'd go for a swap with Robinho? :whistle:

 

Not sure we need players fucking off to Brazil when they fancy it.

 

I'd like to see a swap for between SWP and Keane. We need a player who can take players on and create chances for Torres / Gerrard.

I still think Keane will come good.

 

I don't, for one reason, I think the fans would rather see Gerrard behind Torres, rather than Keane.

 

One thing the game against Everton showed - Gerrard is wasted in centre midfield. How many times did he get forward? Once and that was his goal.

 

I think when fit Torres / Gerrard should be upfront, they are a special combination and we should build the team around them:

 

-----------Mascherano----------Alonso--------------

 

???????----------------Gerrard-----------------Riera

 

------------------------Torres----------------------

 

The key is getting the right player on the right, someone who can beat players and hurt teams (ala Ribery).

 

The only way I see Keane fitting into this side, as a regular (which he should be for a 20 million player), is if Gerrard goes on the right, which is highly unlikely.

I've been hoping that all season but it's just not happening. Can't really see him going anywhere in the Jan window but if they'll take him off our hands in the summer for that amount of money I'd be quite happy.

I also still see Gerrard as a central midfielder. The problem we have though, is that Rafa likes his two central players to be holding players. He doesn't want them running forward and abandoning their positions and this negates a lot of Gerrard's strengths.

 

I can definitely see the reason that people want Gerrard playing in that advanced role but personally i'd prefer to see us playing in a style where the central midfielder has the licence to go and influence the game in the final third.

 

Do people seriously think that Gerrard is disciplined in central midfield because that's his style? When he plays off Torres he's the epitomy of dynamism so it doesn't make sense to think that he plays within himself when he's central for any other reason than the fact that he's told to.

I doubt Rafa will let him go now. There is basically not enough time to find a replacement.

 

 

We could get someone from Channel 5.

 

They can't perform above a Uefa Cup level either.

Brownie I agree with all that.

 

But I think under Benitez, Gerrard is wasted as a central midfield because, as you say, Gerrard has to be very disciplined in that role. He doesn't have much freedom to get forward and as a result he doesn't get forward much, as the Everton game showed, the Stoke game at home and various other examples.

 

I think under Rafa, he should be higher up where he can win us the game, rather than stopping us losing it. Let Alonso / Mascherano control the game, let Torres / Gerrard win it.
