Robbie Return? A Fairytale Ending?

Robbie Return? A Fairytale Ending?

Things have a way of happening for no particular reason and over the last couple of weeks the future of Tottenham's Robbie Keane and where he may end up has taken some strange turns to say the least.

Things have now gone very slow as far as any news filtering out from White Hart Lane is concerned and we all know Wolves's transfer dealing policy!

A total news blackout until a deal is done, maybe no news is good news!

I think maybe a bit of brinkmanship is going on here ,we all know Spurs wont let him go out on loan so maybe a bargain is in the offing?

They will want to get him off the payroll as news last week that Redknapp has been in Spain checking out Forlan (and getting mugged at the same time) perhaps the 3M's are trying to do there own version of a mugging in trying to sign Robbie for a knockdown price!

If we can buy him outright for a bargain price that would give us more scope on his high wages.

Things have a way of working out and perhaps that 'It is written' that he is due to return back to where it all began to finish his career, sometimes fairytales do come true and maybe, just maybe a fairytale may happen sometime next week.

I hope so! He's wasted with us as he never gets a game. His time with Spurs is finished, but like he proved with Celtic, if he is given a new lease of life he gets back to his old scoring ways. I hope you do get him because we want him off the wage bill just as much as you want him on yours.

He should just take a paycut and leave. He has done nothing to justify that level of wage ever. Seeing spurs paid £12m for him 18 months ago they are already doing him a favour by only asking £6m.

We dont need a striker tho... as much as Id love to see him back at Wolves, our priority must be a defender, pref a LB.

it will never happen.. his demands are too high and why should he be payed by far more than our best players are being played? if he's as good as he thinks he is why aren't the best teams coming in for him and why do spurs want to get rid of him? apparently he was looking for a raise on his 65,000 a week to move to birmingham. thats ridiculous

Absolutely, SmithyWolves. He's clearly a mercenary (well, more than the average PL footballer) and therefore fails the MM test.

I agree with Ad Mant, we dont need four good strikers - we need to strenghen the defence.

Reports this afternoon claim that Spurs are going to omit Robbie Keane from there 25 man squad??this may,if true lower his wage demands and make things happen this week,but where to?that is the question.

Not to us, if it means we can't fill in our gaps.

I always figured he would end his career with Wolves. Couple of things- 1/ his career appears to be winding down quicker than any of us could have expected. 2/ I remember him scoring a hat trick (?) at our place refusing to celebrate, and when the Spurs fans starting singing his name, I, as well as almost every else in the ground joined in an applauded him off the pitch. Considering how many times he has moved he must have made close enough to 10 mil on signing on fees, throw the inflated wages in to boot- to me he has always loved his football, and the only ones who know his demands, with Blues for example, will be him and Blues. The last I heard was he was talking to West Ham, who WILL pay him whatever he wants. Whilst seeing Robbie wearing the shirt again was a dream, that was three or four years ago. Would I like to see him at The Wolves? Yes. Do I think we should commit to a signing? No. Would I break the pay structure just for him- NO. He has made his money but he is not doing himself any favors talking to clubs like Blues. If he really loves his football, that will prove apparent by the time the window closes. I think he remains a talent, for me, he didn't do himself declaring himself a lifelong Liverpool fan, then a lifelong Celtic fan within how many months? If he comes back will he hold the shirt up and say it was always his dream to return to Wolves? His options are running out and for whatever he could bring to us, we are not in a position to splash out that kind of money on either a transfer or wages whilst we sit 19th. The furthest I would go is a loan until the end of the season with an agreement that if we stay up we sign him for x amount- whatever that amount would be, let's discuss- I don't know how long he has on his contract but I wouldn't want to pay even the 6 million. If he does come, he also needs to realize what direction his career has taken by his own doing and accept a significant drop in wages. Ah, painful to write, but Keane or no Keane, this is about the best interest of our club.
