Should he stay or should he go?
To paraphrase The Clash, the burning question on the lips of Kopites everywhere is bout whether the Capt of Ireland should stay @ Anfield or should he fooking bugger off?
All the hullabaloo surrounding his future is down to the fact that certain UK tabloids have reported a rumour that ole Harry wants him back at The Lane. And he's willing to offer Aaron Lennon in exchange.
Me fer one was sceptical of Keane's ability to fit into Benitez's system given that the gaffer favours a 4-2-3-1 system. And Keane was a touch too pricey fer me. Now that he is quite obviously struggling to adapt to life at Anfield, the question is should we cut our losses now or persevere in the belief that Keane's undoubted talent will shine through sooner or later?
Me thinks we should take the Lennon offer if it really is on the table. Why? We need a pacey winger down the right plus can you imagine the threat a forward line comprising Torres, Babel & Lennon will pose? Offside traps, man-marking & high defensive lines will surely put to the sword with such Speedy Gonzales forwards.
Besides, Liverpool had already given birth to one great Lennon, who's to say an adopted Lennon won't have a similar impact?
ps: Me looks forward to the view of all genuine footie fans on this conundrum facing Liverpool FC at the moment.
