Can Keane Save Spurs?


Keane Arrives for the Second Time

Back from his short-lived exile in Liverpool, Robbie Keane has vowed to help keep Tottenham in top flight football. But the question is not if he can do that but rather how depressed should Spurs’ supporters be that Keane’s comments are regarding relegation and not European qualification, or at least a top-half finish? Obviously at the point, Tottenham have no chance whatsoever to catch up with the Chelseas and Arsenals of the world, so let’s ignore that side of it. But there is still a legitimate chance to finish higher than last year’s 11th place finish.

Keane will absolutely help the club in the early matches he plays because of the recent injury to Jermain Defoe (probably out 10 weeks or so). He’s familiar with at least some of the players, though the club looks quite a bit different from the one that won the Carling Cup with Keane last season. But is a familiar face really going to change the fortunes at White Hart Lane? Doubtful, this far into the season.

    Just when I was starting to come around on Keane fitting in with Liverpool they ditched him. What gives? Makes me wonder if he wasn’t fitting in in the locker room.

    Yeah, I don’t think Benitez liked him at all. He’d already benched him for the last match and had some quote that was like, we had to get rid of him or else he’d lose us even more money.

    I don’t see him doing much different on Spurs though. He’s just going to replace Defoe who has been scoring like every other match.
