    Yes, Duff, the prolific goalscorer.

    Erm, Defoe joined them mid-season.

    Defoe would be well in the running for that award this year.


    Keane is an extremely talented player, and an automatic first choice for us because he's miles ahead of any other option there. Yes, he's not Up There with Pelé, Muller, or Batistuta in terms of prolificy, but Maradonna has a career total in the 30s for Argentina, and Cruijff has about the same for Holland. Anyone care to argue that Robbie won't be in that band by the time he retires?

    Defoe was in the running for the award and came second. If they thought he was better than Keane over the half season he played for them he would have won the award.

    You don't think having only half a season is a wee bit of a disadvantage in that competition? I rate Keane and Defoe around the same level, though they're totally different players.

    No... cant be arsed looking up the individual games, but from the Spurs site there is this (2003/4)

    Keane
    Barclaycard Premiership Tottenham Hotspur 31(3) 14 0 0
    FA Cup Tottenham Hotspur 3 1 0 0
    Carling Cup Tottenham Hotspur 4 1 0 0
    Euro Champ. Qualifying Republic of Ireland 6 2 0 0
    Int. Friendlies Republic of Ireland 7 4 0 0
    Total 51(3) 22 0 0

    Defoé
    Barclaycard Premiership Tottenham Hotspur 14(1) 7 1 0
    Nationwide Div 1 West Ham United 19 11 5 3
    Carling Cup West Ham United 3 4 0 0
    Int. Friendlies England 0(2) 0 0 0
    2003/2004 England U21 1 0 0 0
    2003/2004 England U21 1(2) 0 0 0
    Total 38(5) 22 6 3

    Keane started in 38, Defoé 14, even in taking into account the 20 (I think) extra pre-Jan games Keane had, he still comes out as starting more games for them.

    I think people should remember that whilst having short legs makes
    if very difficult to score goals they are great for doing cart wheels.
    A fact which appears to have been overlooked in this tread for some
    reason, unbeknown to me

    Btw ,Love your latest signature......... it wasn't me was it,in a moment of inspiration

    Now that's happened a few time's Dav, i've now taken a zero tolerance stance when it come's to that subject. Plastic Paddy has taken copyright on some of my remark's now and he used them well in Paris when called for.
    The signature was taken from a gentleman beside me from the rebel county when I was standing up at the back of the stand in the first half who did'nt like one of his fellow Cork native's, I thought he was going to cause a riot.

    Didn't she ask you to stop talking with 'that scary voice of yours'? Dunno if that was the Laandaan accent or your automatic switch to Barry White mode - oh yeaaahhh! - when ladies get up close? There's a touch of the Frank Brunos (not Bluenose ) about your voice according to Coventry's answer to Benicio Del Toro. Know what I mean, hee, hee, hee?

    Exclamation Right everybody

    I want to explain what I said in my original message,I said that Robbie Keane is brilliant.The guy who said he was crap-his location is London-that is why I said no true Irishman would say Keane is crap because of all he has done for Ireland,fair enough he is not doing the best at the moment but he is competing with some top players at Spurs and he is the best striker Ireland has now so we need him.Again like I said I am not against English people,I have plenty of relations who are English.So I hope this answers a lot of your questions

    So I take it when Irish people leave Ireland and go to England they also change their nationality as well as their address.
    As well as to bring up their kid's to wear shirt's with 3 puddy cat's on them and teach their kid's Chas n Dave song's.
    Did they teach yer about emigration in school or were yer off sick that day.

    There was no switch to Barry White I have to say was too interested in making the ground for the kick off, she did crack me up when she said that though.
    As for Senior Benito Del Toro from Coventry
