I like him a lot as a player and I was glad for him today when Spurs won and he fulfilled a dream of lifting a cup in front of a packed stadium…but crying with happiness after winning the League Cup Final - ha ha ha ha ha.
Yeah meant to post about that earlier. Pathetic really. Well done and all that but Christ almighty it’s the Carling Cup.
Think you’re wrong there - pretty sure it’s The Milk Cup.
I think Littlewoods have it from next season though.
Did Rumbelow’s not win that tender process last week?
Of all the cups I doubt Robbie “dreamed” of winning this one. “Ah yeah, story bud, always dreamed of this when I was joyridin round Tallaght”
He played well again today though and has been doing so all season. 20 goals in 40 appearances and a few of those were from off the bench.
Leave Keane alone. When you beat Chelsea to win a trophy then you have a right to celebrate it. Fair play to him. He gave Chelseas defence a torrid time. Ramos has a great record in the cups. They could go all the way in the Uefa Cup.
Keane is a mug.
Hasnt he scored the most goals in the league in the whole of 2007? He is just not good for Ireland.
I don’t care about his football. He’s a sub human. He’s like bird shit, I wouldn’t step on him to avoid my shoe getting dirty
I think ‘on fire’ would sum up his form recently for Spurs
It’s just a pity that he thinks he’s too good for Ireland though

I think that’s horseshit. He’s had some poor performances recently but he never stopped putting in the effort.
There’s no doubt Keane has improved a lot over the past 2 seasons, and European football would have a lot to do with that. With that in mind, it’s hard to argue he is totally blameless for his inferior international form, which is very poor in comparison.
Don’t think he’s blameless but I don’t think it arises from him thinking he’s too good for Ireland. Just think he’s playing the wrong way.
His attitude is the problem.
Did you see him on the Late Late that time?
What an absolute fook…

I do like to judge players based on their Late Late appearances. It’s difficult sometimes though because strangely enough some of the best players have never even graced Studio 4 with their presence.
Still not sure what to make of Maldini until he puts himself in front of Pat Kenny.

The word for that is ‘cutting’. Come on Farmer. What have you got in your locker? As I said, I like Robbie Keane a lot as a player. He hasn’t been great for Ireland in the last couple of campaigns but then again both set-ups were quite shambolic. He’s still scored a raft of international goals and hopefully there’s a good few more to come now that we have a manager who’s qualified to do the job.
Farmer is right about him being a fook. He clearly is.
His ability is not in question
I never doubted Keane’s ability. But his performances for Ireland have been disgraceful oiver the last few years. He seems intent on blaming others on the pitch when he, himself, is at fault. He has not played well for Ireland since the World Cup in 2002 and his demeanour on the pitch would suggest that he thinks he’s too good for the team. Thsi pathetic attitude was never more summed up in that interview. He demanded to come on the Late Late so that he could talk too the Irish fans and say that he thought Stan was the right man for the job (what t’fook!!). He then preceeded to lambast the fans saying that they were expecting to much. Fuck right off you jumped up little fucker. This is exactly his attitude on the pitch as well - ‘how dare anyone criticise me’.
Just because he bellows out Amhrain na bhFiann at the top of his voice before every match doesn’t mean that he is committed
I would love to see him get back to his best under Trap but his attitude and performances for Ireland over the last four years have been a thundering disgrace
