FERGIE HAS A GO AT KEANE.....TACTICALLY ASTUTE!
After hearing reports that Gerrard and Torres will struggle to be fit for the high noon clash at Anfield, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson must have have set out looking for the next 'big' thing at Liverpool that will worry his side come Saturday. Asked by the The Sun which transfer surprised him most, the fiery Scott cleverly pointed out the transfer of Robbie Keane to the Dippers as one that raised his eye-brows. Whilst it is synonymous to the world that the transfer of Robinho to Manchester City was the transfer joke of the summer, Fergie has opted to go for Robbie Keane for what I may look at as obvious reasons. He has been in management for over 25 years and should therefore know how to use the press in his favour. This news, despite being rubbished by the player in question, will go a long way in unsettling the Liverpool camp--especially if it is Keane and not Torres that leads the Liverpool attack on Saturday. Much as he risks a backlash from Keane, the Irishman might be the only one up for it as he will get a vote of no confidence from his colleagues. It's going to be fascinating to see how this turns out, but Fergie usually wins the battles he starts...Keegan and Wenger and lately Benitez will know that!
