KEANE TO GO (ANYWHERE!)
One thing I noticed about the Robbie rocket move to L.A. Galaxy was how happy he was to be heading to join David ("I din't fink dey was permanent tattooes Victowea...oh shit!") Beckham and the lads in the Hollywood Hills. Here's a little selection of various quotes that RK gave to the press when joining any number of the clubs he has been a part of in his career. It's funny to see how many boyhood dreams he has fulfilled and just how many clubs are so close to his heart ;-)
"I have always wanted to come and play in MLS so it's the perfect combination for me and a dream come true" - Robbie Keane reveals his joy at a £3.5m move from Tottenham to LA Galaxy. Obviously.
But, haven't we heard that before...ummmm.
20 August 1999: "It has always been my dream to play in the Premiership and I'm over the moon to be joining Coventry."
31 July 2000: "It's every kid's dream come true. I am absolutely delighted at the prospect of joining a world-famous club like Inter."
14 May 2007: "They say five clubs and all that, but I am very settled here [at Spurs] and am really enjoying it."
28 July 2008: "I've been a Liverpool fan all my life, going back to when I was a kid growing up in Dublin, and I always had a Liverpool shirt on my back. To be sitting here today in a Liverpool tracksuit is a dream come true."
6 February 2009: "I'm delighted to be back [at Spurs]. This is a club that's dear to my heart."
1 February 2010: "I am a Celtic fan and did not have to ask much about it. I always wanted to play for Celtic and it works for all parties."
31 January 2011: "I'm ready to help West Ham stay up. I feel I have plenty left to offer at the highest level for at least the next four or five years."
As long as he keeps popping them in for fun in a green shirt he can fecking play for Rangers...well okay maybe not but you get the idea ;-P
