Richard Keogh - always got a mistake in him

Didn't Pearce play right side centre back at Reading, as did Albentosa in Spain? They were bought in as competition for Keogh and failed to improve on him. 

Because we are obsessed with playing out, rather than defend first. Which I guess is why we can win 5-0 and lose 4-1 in a week.

was that Carlisle and Coventry? lower league team and a relegated to lower league team?

See this is exactly the problem, he's a top 8 defender in a position where we need a top 2 defender.

Wes Morgan literally won the Premier League

Rowett said similar after the match, we seem to turn up to away games and think we can just pass it about and win. Where has that mentality come from? I am surprised Keogh is still captain.

Surely you can't say that Nigel Pearson and Gary Rowett are obsessed with playing it out? They are pragmatic managers who put results over aesthetics (or so we are led to believe). Why did they not get rid of Keogh or drop him if he is as bad as you say?

I wouldn't say we do anymore. We try and work it to Huddlestone and go long if we can't. 

Which would be the argument for cashing in on Keogh and signing a better defender. 

The arguement for him starting currently is that we supposedly want a high-line and need his pace. 

Perhaps Shackell and Pearce away from home when were being pegged back anyway?

You mean GR couldn't see Keoghs faults last season and on video. And then this season makes him

Which to me is the worrying thing, unless other reasons were at play (I'm more c***-up over conspiracy, so I haven't a clue about reasons lol!)

100% this.

Jack Rodwell has a premier league winners medal. The other week in the under 23's Thorne & Elsnik looked a million times greater, and controlled the game, Rodwell barely touched the ball.
