Keogh Confusion

Keogh Confusion

Andy Keogh's future at Wolves or beyond becomes more complex by the day.

The Irish striker has practically been assured a place in the 25 man squad,considering he stays, despite the fact he remains available for transfer.

This situation brings great concern to me.

I have always valued Keogh as one of our best young talents and would be sad to see him leave regardless of whatever fee we could bring in for him- the 2.5 million quoted I actually find reasonable. Andy is a bag of talent; to start with the basics he will run all day for you- on to his qualities he is a quick and smart thinker, alert to openings, has a great first touch, and the ability to pick out other players, as well as his ability to chip in with goals.

I have never rated him as an out and out striker who will bag us 20 goals a season but I think he could easily fill the gap behind the front two, or on either wing.

If the manager thinks so highly of him, highly enough to practically assure him a place in the 25 man squad, then why is he still available?

What are we going to do with that money? It is certainly not enough to bring in long term target Michael Mancienne, or anyone else for that matter.

My greatest concern is that if Fletch and/or Doyle get injured we have Blakey in 'reserve' and 'The Kids' who have tasted pre-season football and not much else. I have said in the past that the availability of Keogh convinced me Mick had a card up his sleeve because why on earth would we go into the season with one reserve forward considering Keogh is allowed to go. I do not think for a minute that Ward will be played up front, or could provide us with the goals if he did.

On the other hand, Mick, despite his detractors who would refute this claim, experiments a plenty- Van Damme on the left of midfield an obvious early example so with a wealth of attacking midfielder's perhaps he is thinking of giving the likes of Jarvis of Kightly a go upfront as and when needed. Personally I think this is a thought worth relishing. They can't all play wide at the same time, and Kightly's pace for example would terrify most defences.

It is another interesting saga that rolls by with the days. In my personal opinion don't be surprised if that big name player comes in on loan.

I can't stand the sight of Craig Bellamy but how he has ended up in the Championship is beyond me.

Reports this morning say Bristol City lining up a 1.2 million bid,Its nowhere near the 2.5 wer'e asking but I think if they up the offer a little more he could be going.

I think that £1.5M is far nearer his true worth than the £2.5M we have been asking.

I think 2 Million is a fair price , I dont mind him going aslong as he is replaced very quickly , Would not be a Problem selling if Vokes was fit , but if Keogh goes and not replaced that leaves us with 3 Strikers ???

Exactly... we saw on Saturday that Keogh was our only "striker" on the bench... I sincerely hope that Merlin has something up his sleeve

Nobody will pay £2M for Keogh he is not worth that or he would have been snapped up already.
