Another mistake last night.

I knew we'd get a limited amount of time out of him before he went into decline when we signed him but hes nowhere near living up to the reputation he'd forged for wales and Swansea.

Is he finished at the top level?

I think we dodged a bullet, signing him when he was 31. only a few more years before age relieves us of this particular mistake.

I was quite happy when we got him; thought he had been brilliant the past few years in the PL. Sadly, he has failed to recreate that form for us, and does look absolutely finished this season.
Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

Just not good enough I'm afraid. He looks overweight and turns like the QE2. His distribution is embarrassing

Same here, I was well chuffed, thought it was a clever signing, similar to when we got Distin at a similar age. He seems to be on a steep decline though, two years ago he was very good at Swansea and for Wales, but now... He's a bit of a disaster...

He was never good enough and made these sort of mistakes at Swansea they were just brushed over because it’s “only Swansea” and they’re not very good defensively(erm hello!!).

Some of our squad building over the last 18 months has been poor given the money we’ve been spending. Thats one thing Koeman or Walsh won’t be able to complain about if they get the sack soon as they’ve certainly been given enough backing.
There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

Not good on the ball and poor form would justify dropping him

Jags is still better and should be a starter with Keane for me. However when we have 3 games in a week Koeman doesnt seem to want to play Jags or Williams in all the games he has tended to take them both out for 1 game in the week. So while we have the Europa, and league cup for one game at least...I'd imagine we will see Jags and Williams rotating over the next couple of months with Keane being a constant and occasionally all 3 if he goes 3 at the back.

At £17m we should have bought Maguire to play alongside Keane - too late now
