caymanram Posted December 21, 2013 Share Posted December 21, 2013 Certainly a blow losing Keogh - and for (on paper) the most difficult of the short term games (Hudds). But I do wonder whether it might actually be a blessing in disguise since it gives Keane a chance to play. I believe he is certainly no worse than Keogh and may actually be the better player. The only area that I think Keogh might bring something more to the table is in commitment to that last ditch 50/50 tackle or some diving block - something that might end in injury. Just think Keane (as a loanee) may be less inclined to give that extra 1%. But that aside I think he's a great stand-in. Thing is that this injury shows exactly why we need cover for Keogh (and certain of our other key players e.g. Wisdom) and also why we need Keane on a season long loan. Fact is, if he isn't playing regularly Utd won't extend his loan when it ends in Jan. With him playing then they are far more likely to do so. Which I believe is vital.
