But he's lost he's place on the bench now. I think he'll need to put in a little bit more effort in training then he'll have the best season ticket seat in the house! Although I don't think its worth 20 million!
If the unthinkable happens and Keane does come back,do you think it would be a mistake.I know his workrate is good,but do you think he will be any good without Berbatov to play along side.
I say this as when Defoe signed first time around Keane struggled to get in the team,do you remember him being fined because he didnt want to be sub.

People are moaning about the fact that Chimbonda has come back and although I'm not defending his outburst it was the Carling cup final and you have to understand any player could have reacted badly to being subbed in a cup final. Keane on the other hand threw a strop a number of times over being subbed throughout his spurs career, left the club at his own accord as he obviously thought he was too good for the club and should be at a premiership title challenger (how wrong he was!) so why would anyone want him back? I said the same thing to Liverpool fans(as i live in Liverpool) when Keane arrived that he thrived at Tottenham because he was playing with a special talent that is Berbatov who looks to set up his man whenever possible, something that Torres doesn't do an example being against Everton last monday when through on goal and hitting the post with Keane completly open for a tap in. The fact is any player would have had a good partnership with Berbatov, Keane was just the lucky one that made it work before Defoe did and Defoe was the casualty. The fact is Berbatov has left so I dont feel Keane would have the same impact he did at us anyway. The facts don't lie and its no coincidence that Keane best 2 seasons for us were the 2 he was partnered by Berbatov! Befoe that he was relatively average who if I recall almost moved to Everton for 5 mil the pre-season we brought Berbatov to the club!!
