2022/23 Michael Keane

How much for the pair?
How does a two-month break from football earn someone a clean slate for being rubbish for the last three seasons? By that logic you'd offer Tosun a new contract!
Was great for us with Carlo, no need to rewrite history there.

We just have to play to his strengths which there aren't many of, and he shines lol Carlo proved that.

You're absolutely right but is it the exception or the rule? There are a lot of benefits to a good understanding. It's probably easier with better centre halves than we had last season too.
Sure - it's definitely the exception rather than the rule. However whenever Mina has played, despite having not played for some time usually, up until he gets injured again he's normally our best defender and makes our whole defence better. It is unlikely anyone else will come in for him so let's use him when we can. Even if he breaks down regularly any minutes he gives us are a) usually of a good quality and b) gives a break to others who may benefit from the rest

Was he? Or did we have to put two CBs at full back and two DMs in front of him before he started doing what anyone would expect a 30 million pound centre back to do?

Any time we swapped Digne in for Godfrey at leftback the back line fell apart as Keane had to actually move a bit outside of his two yard area and we were once again all over the shop.

Or was it that Spurs game when we’d won the game twice at Goodison only for Keane to baloon two balls into Holgate giving Kane two goals on a night when they’d created absolutely nothing.

He’s been absolutely terrible for us apart from a small period under Carlo with no fans when he actually managed to do some average stuff like boot balls clear and head what he should be heading.

He was, between average and good, and you knew what to expect, with the shocker being an outlier. Now it's the opposite.

We also set up way more different in general, which helped him (or any other CB).

Was the first one with the OG the one where we had basically no wide players on the pitch? What a horrible game that was.

You say he is mentally weak then call him lego head, that's the problem right there, it's not the player, it's the poor unsupportive fan base.
This isn't exclusive to Keane though, look at Pickford, hasn't put a foot wrong for England, but I doubt the Barmy Army are as anti there team as some of us are
Nah he needs to grow a set. Watch him / if he makes one mistake he goes to pieces during a game. He doesn’t talk or organise. He just retreats into himself Nowhere near good enough. If you’re gonna command a position and wage for a PL club then you better be prepared to take the stick.

Pickford is different / he’s quality. He’s just going through the maturing process as do most goalies.

If we are still short of strikers in the next week or 2 and Rondon doesn't for some reason deliver, is this lad not worth a punt as a target man?

Seen some devastating finishes from him at finch farm and in the prem to be fair and can think of worse ideas if we don't sign anyone.
He's worth a punt alright. Right out of the football club. He's poo, man.
