Popa’s Keane on Robbie

Over the last few days speculation has linked Robbie Keane to both Brisbane Roar and to Western Sydney Wanderers.

Popa has come out with his admiration for the prolific striker on Fox Sports.

When you’ve got somebody of Robbie Keane’s calibre and pedigree, I’m sure every A-League club would be interested,” Kingsman said on Wednesday. “We haven’t made an approach yet. We will make the call.”

Meanwhile, on Thursday, Popovic declared: “He’s certainly a player it’s hard not to have a look at,” Popovic said. “I’m sure there are several that are being mentioned and there are more than several that have been put on our desk, but obviously Robbie is the one everyone is talking about at the moment.

“He’s had a fantastic career, he’s a great player and still scoring goals, so he’s certainly a player we’d have a look at.”

Hopefully the lure of Asian Football and passionate fans will lure this exceptional striker to WSW.

Robbie Keane has had a glittering career and a 18 month contract would give Wanderers an attacking emphasis that is sadly missing this year.

That’s no attack on Kerem, i feel for his cursed luck.

Less said from last week the better.

Robbie Keane at 36 is not a long term option, but he would be an investment in the development of Nichols, Bulut and the newly resigned Lachlan Scott.

His experience is immense.

With an Asian Champions League tilt on the horizon, an 18 month contract will lock him up til November where our ambitions must lie.

We are not a small club.

Robbie Keane would be a signing of intent, internationally recognisable, a goal scoring machine for club and country and a passionate player.

On the last point, i think this could help push us over the line.

If you are at the end of your career, the last thing you want to become is Liam Miller.

Playing good football in front of no fans.

Keane would be a hit at West Sydney, we are both desperate for silverware.

The Premiership will require a long unbeaten run, if we are to have any hopes we need to bring in some firepower.

The Championship and Asia are still well within our grasp and Keane could be the gilt edge to win our first and take our second.

If we want to compete in these competitions i believe the squad as it stands is in need of reinforcements.

There are clearly better teams domestically at the moment let alone on the continent.

It is time to put the cat among the pigeons.

Lets hope Popa’ gets his man!
