Hunger seems to have totally gone, seems to be in it for the money can't see many club's queing up to take with his wage demands being so high, just a sub these days for first club to be relegated from the prem this season, probably be more honest just to retire.

Wolves maybe, or QPR could take a chance on him if he wants to stay in London. No club will be stupid enough to match his wage demands as he's simply not worth it these days.

He's looked a shadow of his old self since the end of last season.

Played most of his time with UCD then he had a poor season with Derry iirc, but Killie took a chance on him, loads of football in him could not finish to save his life, Derry were delighted with what they got iirc. First season in Scotland no difference and then started to score and score for fun in his second season with Kilmarnock, got his move to Wigan. He will only improve might be better spending  aseason in the championship but to be fair that was a great goal he socred today.

Really sorted his feet out & put the chance away well today.

For the games I've seen this season he's looked to get in great positions. Wigan could lose a few players in the summer, even if they stay up, so could get a real go next season.

Any reason why there needs to be a negative thread started about Robbie Keane?? Our greatest ever goal scorer and all he evers gets is abuse on this forum. Some clowns even happy to write the man off at 30 years of age. In 20 years  time the same people will be telling their grandkids how we can't get a good goalscorer like Robbie was nowdays! As another poster said why not pick out the positive points for Irish football over the weekend. Sammon scoring, Long and Harte in playoffs, Shane Ferguson starting at Stamford bridge.
Unfortunately a small country like us will always struggle for top class players annd a few will come along in cycles. let's not knock them and write them off. Robbie is still going to be our biggest threat in remaining qualifiers.

You don't watch much football if you have Robbie Keane down as a non-trier. If you really were stuck to find a footballer to have a go at to take the heat of your anti-GAA posts Shay Given would have been a better example. Robbie has gone on loan the last 2 Januarys when he wasn't getting games at Spurs. Given had chances to go in August and January but sat tight(I know he had an injury since).

RF,

You, on one hand, berate the Connor Sammon posts as "idiotic"; yet this is a player who went from a reserve a UCD & Derry, to an EPL goal-scorer yesterday, via a stint in the SPL.

I think it's fair to describe his ascent as a highly apt example of hard work, perseverance & a "never give up" attitude.

Yet, in the very same thread, you also criticise Robbie Keane for not exhibiting these very attributes.

Your English teacher must be very proud of you - the definition of irony is clearly evident here...

Think its probably a bit early to write his obituary just yet. West Ham have been a basket case this year, getting relegated with the players they had at their disposal a discgrace but serves the porn kings right.

Robbie aint good enough for a top club anymore but under the right manager he can still bang in his fair share of goals for a couple of years yet.

I'm not saying he can't play in the premiership, I just can't see him starting at any of the current clubs (including Wolves) and much less I can't see hims scoring 20 goals in a season. He would make an ok backup striker, and his wages will have to reflect that.
Report Rocketfingers May 16, 2011 2:54 PM BST
Squigs anybody who watched the premier league can see this, you have posters posting on here who watch the 5 mins of soccer saturday each week and think they can tell you all about a game. Exactly, i agree 100% with you, he is a backup now probably will score a few goals that's about it but i think it is because he has no appetite for the game, did he not say too long ago that if he was dropped by Ireland he would consider retiring from International football, a sign that he would not be prepared to fight to get it back.

When i look who i am arguing against it makes me feel so smug, Tony Fenton comes on and says he could be a 20 goal man next year, you have worse though as the likes Steeringjob and my new found stalker Irishro (great imagination to come up with that name) applauding this prediction from Tony. But these trio i liken to Larry, Curly and Mo omit the fact that Keane has never scored 20 premier league goals in a season, in fact Keane has never scored 20 league goals in a any season in any league for any club. Now Tony will tell us he was talking about 'all competitions' but we will know he meant the 'premier league'. It's a well known fact that strikers always aim for 20 goals, midfielders aim for 10. It' this ignorance to 'fact' that drives me bonkers. I blame the tabloid media, the red tops for the way they form their ideas about sport. They seem incapable of research, just read the headlines and the rubbish inside and are unable to form their own ideas about anything of note.
Report The Icchantika May 16, 2011 3:08 PM BST
Robbie Keane is in the top ten all time goalscorers in the premier league, his record for Ireland is incredible and he can still score goals when given the chance. He was very unfortunate to get injured early on at West Ham. Harry Redknapp is a complete spoofer and I hope he is the next England manager. He sent a proven premier league goalscorer out on loan when Pavlyuchenko, Crouch and Defoe couldn't buy a goal between them. We should be dreading the day when Keane retires as it will be a long time before we have a striker of his calibre again.

Really.  There's no, coincidence he was shipped out to Celtic then West Ham, just a tragedy that the Hammers won't be paying £6m to take him off our hands, cos no one else will.

He was a good player but for 2 years now, he's been a headless chicken of a player and that's why he ain't got a look in at Spurs, despite their chronic striking problems.

No problem with Keane per se, but I along with others flagged up the progress of Long on here a long time ago. I want to see him get his chance and as we know that Doyle will play, it is Keane who is standing in his way. There are definitely signs of decline in Keane's play, he has lost a yard of pace and if one leaves out his spell in Scotland, It has been a few years now since he has been scoring goals.

I would also like to add that Keane has been a fine player for club and country, but better players than Keane have declined significantly by the age of 30, the like of Owen, Shevchenko and Ronaldinho to name but a few and it can be for various reasons. People saying that we are mad to write off Keane at the age of thirty should take a closer look. While I would not write him off completely, I am practically certain that he is passed his best, and it is not implausable that he is finished at Premier League level.


My feelings specifically in relation to Keane are that his days as an on the shoulder Premier League striker are done and that it is now the case that he is going to operate as a link man between midfield and a lone pacy front man. He is intelligent and can excell in this role, but the question is whether there ia PL club who can accomodate him with the prevalence of the 4-5-1/4-3-3 system.

Report neill d May 17, 2011 11:01 PM BST
I want to see Robbie involved as well, interestingly, I think Robbie playing off Long could work very well, however that would mean shunting Doyle to the right which wont happen. I could see Trap starting Long wide right, but I really want both Coleman and McGeady as our wingers, if all these players develop as I think they will. Trap has some difficult upcoming choices.

An aside, but on Saturdays FA Cup final performance, Jermaine Pennant is worth pursing by the FAI, he gave an international class left back in Kolorav a torrid time and I don't believe we can afford to ignore these kind of players.

I know there are those who would deride these kind of moves by the FAI, but I could not care less who is playing for us as long as we Qualify and this lad has the class and pedigree to help us achieve something. He is an unfullfilled talent, maybe we can give hime the platform and it can be mutually beneficial.

He looked equally comfortable on both wings and if one is to believe Marco Tardelli, trap wants to have a look at the fast improving Aiden McGeady in a more central position off the striker in the not too distant future. Maybe he can be fitted in, as he is probably a classier operator than either Hunt or Lawrence.
Report the jolly May 18, 2011 9:49 AM BST
Pennant asked recently on the progress with his Irish qualification - he said he was unsure and to ask his agent.  I am all for qualification but not at any cost.  Big difference in giving him a green shirt and giving one to the likes of McGeady / McCarthy who chose Ireland over Scotland or the lads defecting from the North who are more than welcome.
Lots of decent talant coming through for Ireland with lads who really want to play for their country and the way the international game is going, should be more than possible for us to qualify for major tournaments again.  Taking the likes of Pennant would be awful for morale and a backward step

His performance last night only strengthened my view that his top level days are over. Horrifically slow for the 1 on 1 chance in the first half and even when he won the penalty the right back made up 10 yards on him.

One nice finish when he had about 3 minutes on the ball doesn't prove much.

He's still got his brain and as such will always get in positions to score, so it's probably still worth a lower level prem team taking a chance on him for 3 or 4 million.

As I said previously I don't even get why this thread was started. Robbie really has nothing to prove to Ireland in my opinion. 48 goals is an unreal achievement and I'd imagine it will be appreciated in 20 years from now when we'll be lucky to get someone to past Niall Quinn's 21.
If we are to qualify for euro 2012 we need Robbie to get us the goals along the way and last night proves he's not finished yet.
We were missing 7/8 regulars last night but luckily we've got some good talent coming through and they got to shine last night(admittedly against a poor side) but you can be sure Scotland, Wales and the North would love to be in our position yet all some can do here is find the negative all the time.

If you watch the way the Northern Irish centre caught up with him easily in the first half, you would see that it is yet another example that he is not as quick as he was, it is indisputable. For a centre forward, How is this not a sign of decline? Why is it Harry Redknapp isn't picking him having paid a tonne of cash to bring him back from Liverpool? He is clearly not as good as he was, scoring a goal from a telegraphed backpass against the North proves absolutely nothing.

I totally understand your point that he's not the player he was. Most strikers once they get past 30 show signs of decline but I still believe in the context of Ireland Robbie is the main man and I believe he's the most likely to get the goals in the big games for a few years to come. Will be interesting to see where he goes this summer but Im sure plenty of prem clubs will be interested. No doubt a full season of games in the premier league can only help Ireland too. It just seems churlish for lads who obviously don't watch much football to come on here slagging him off.
I find it quite strange that a random thread about Robbie was started but yet no one feels too put out by the atitude of Stokes, Wilson, McCarthy etc.

I'd a bit of a pop at Stokes excuse in another thread alright. Yes, you're right Irishro, in the context of Ireland, I think he still has plenty to offer. I think he will be very well suited to playing just off Shane Long against Macedonia, better suited than playing with Doyle imo as I prefer Robbie dropping off rather than running in  behind these days. His chip last night was the highpoint of the night in many ways, don't think anyone else on the pitch had the class to finish like he did.

If anyone is guilty of tabloid reactions it would be you! Scoring goals is the bread and butter of a striker and as long as Robbie keeps doing it for Ireland he deserves the support of this whole country. We'll never see his likes again.

Keane needs to play with a guy who wants to get in behind defences now to give him space, Long or Walters are good partners for him. Doyle runs the channels but seems to want to come toward the ball like Robbie and I don't think it is the best partnership. I've criticised keane in this thread, but it has never been for a lack of technichal ability or lack of application, I simply believe that he has lost a good deal of his pace and the coach must choose carefully who he is paired with.

He would be my first name down on the teamsheet........He only gets knocked because he has made a few quid out of the game........gives his all and it will be a fair while till we get a goalscorer like him again.
