The stones/keane thing is an interesting topic for sure.
We all saw the potential stones had but truth be told we were desperate for some decent defending as we d been crap at the back. I don't mind admiting I was chuffed with both Williams and keane signing...obviously both are looking awful now so proved wrong big time (I know, I know it doesn't happen very often).
One important thing to remember is that stones probably would not be the player he is now had he'd of stayed simply die to the way play/managers. It was one of those transfers that felt right for all 3 parties at the time.
