After an slow first half of the season on his return from Liverpool,he looked pretty impressive during the start of the 09/10 campaign, then found himself being pushed out on to the left of midfield and as his confidence started to dip so did his game,until such a point in fact as he then began to find himself pushed further down the striking pecking order,something than many of us would never have thought possible.In fact his form dropped of so badly after the first four or five games last season that the only way he could be sure of first team football was to make the journey north of the border in the January transfer window,a move which not only shocked the fans but according to reports at the time a lot of the players also found this hard to cope with.But alas Keane out in search of his old self and in so doing donned the green and white hoops of Glasgow Celtic,and after a few sluggish games to begin with he started to regain his fitness,and hence started finding the net again on a more regular basis.
However we all now that the standard of opposition in the Scottish Premier League is a lot less than that of it’s cousin South of the border,taking this then as a given how has Robbie’s game seemly improved to such an extent that he could now find himself a regular again in the Tottenham starting eleven? The answer to this must I believe come in two parts,the first I believe is that Robbie has rediscovered that fire which had been so badly extinguished under the tutelage of Rafa Benitez.That will to win at all costs no matter how much the body will ache the next morning,now I’m not one to knock a man that obviously knows more about football than I ever will,it just seems so obvious that our little Irishman went up to Liverpool a first rate player and for whatever reason,on his return to the Lane he was a broken man.Yes he played a big part in helping us avoid relegation,but it was obvious to all that his time on the red side of the Mersey had affected him badly
Now on to the second piece in the jigsaw that is Robbie,which I believe to be his form,as a footballer you are a vacant without it,the loss of said form though can to some extent be covered if you still have that drive to make the runs into either goalscoring positions or the setting up of the same for those around you,but as I have previously written perhaps Robbie had lost this also,hence the absence of the aforesaid latter part could not be covered up.
Now however with the rebirth of our captain form at his feet,belly full of the fires,have we at last got our -season performances show is he close at hand.Are you then a happy bunny or an indifferent fox that still wishes to see Keano depart the Lane once more?back,or at least as his
