He's suffered with a lack of consistency next to him. He's had Jags and Williams rotating next to him and then Martina, Holgate and Kenny all randomly playing on the right side. It's hard to build up a level of form as a new player with a shifting defence. He's also had to play in a 3 and a 4. I think every single defender deserves a little bit of slack right now but Keane maybe moreso than anyone else.

It's hard to imagine, but maybe Funes Mori really would work well next to him?  They seems fairly complementary.

I like Keane but I still think he gets dragged out of position quite easily. He has got good attributes for a CB and looks like a decent baller but he needs to mature a bit in this position which I believe will with more games under his belt.

I think Duffy is exactly the type of player Koeman needs right now. Someone we can genuinely blame for being shit and not look at the manager cos it can't be his fault we losing, our defence has Shane Duffy in it.

Keane is massively under performing. Not quite to the extent of Klaassen but still no where near the expected levels.

Everyone is significantly underperforming. Tends to happen when the manager is proving to be largely incompetent. Let's have threads slagging off every player in the squad.

Where has this Shane Duffy love in come from?

Is it just a knee jerk to Williams being crap because prior to that not once has he been metioned as one-that-got-away.

From having watched him play a fair bit and more recently.

And to be clear, I wasn't saying we should definitely get him. Just that he has developed into important player for club and country and would command a decent fee.

He's currently 2nd in PL for combined blocks, clearances and interceptions and Brighton have better defensive record than us, so just seems like outdated opinions.

There's a reasonable argument that he's now a good defender who would be decent for us. There isn't an argument whatsoever though that we missed a trick by not letting him go at the time, not that I am saying you are the one saying that.

He's a better defender than Stones with better passing, Stones hasn't been great for City.
I don't want a centre half who goes on big runs, his primary goal should be defending
I'd prefer Keane to Stones all day

Things change quickly dont they
