He defends well and is good on the ball which i thought is what we were getting with stones.  Keane is were stones could be

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.

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for combined blocks, clearances and interceptions and Brighton have better defensive record than us, so just seems like outdated opinions.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 been superb so far this season. I'm fucking made up that he's turned it round

I think we need to credit a more settled backline as well. A big signing will struggle for good form in an erratic lineup. Particularly in defence. We've even seen it in midfield with Sigurdsson and his form this season being much better.

I like the lad and thinks he's a good player. I think he's been better than Zouma this season tbh

Definitely an argument to be made there.

No one's been great all season I'm more than aware of that but Keane has been the most consistent centre back for me.

Not for me.

Lob the ball anywhere near the channel Keane is manning and he struggles.

Think Zouma has covered for him a lot this season.

Both players are very poor in the air though which is a big issue for two big fellas at the back.

I think Zouma looks impressive because he's quicker. Keane seems to make more interceptions for me though

He's not worth 50 million but sick of upheaval and would much rather he stayed and formed a strong partnership with someone

Sell Keane - buy Zouma

Simples

Don't see the point of being a defender down and having to spend whatever profits on someone elsd

What are peoples thoughts on him now? I've always rated him but I have totally got why others have not. Anyone changed opinion for better or worse on the lad? I reckon he's been great this season

(And apologies Gash forgot there was a thread)
