    Arrested for impersonating a professional footballer....


    I thought the thread would be someone suggesting we put in a 'cheeky bid '

    Didn't two or three of our Championship winning players credit him being a major contributor to winning the title? But then he always was number one scapegoat on here

    He racked up so many assists, a very intelligent player. Just a shame he never really added more goals to his game and wasn't a little quicker otherwise I'm sure he'd have been a Premier League player

    pretty good player tbh was just used as a scapegoat at times, and the fact he could get through on goal and still try and pass the dam ball

    Had a good football brain but when he got into the goal scoring stakes, he didn't have that ice cold composure that the great ones have! He 'flashed' at the ball, usually resulting in a hopeless attempt on goal

    Now as for Sturridge ..... there was a clinical goals scorer! Had it in spades!!

    My lasting memory of Keogh as a Wolves player will be that diving header away at Derby in 2009.

    Met him once, nice guy!

    Was a very effective player for us for a few seasons.

    My lasting memory of him is the only time that I've seen the look of abject fear on a footballers face, when looking at an open goal.

    Whereas mine would be the stupid speculative attempt at goal at Arsenal away when just keeping hold of the ball or even taking it into the corner flag would have been better


    Smokey & I met him at an Eire game whilst he was away on loan (I think at Leeds) & when we were introduced as Wolves fans he just stared at the floor as if embarrassed to meet us & showed no desire to speak to us. John O'Shea even posed for a photograph with us

    One of my favourite Wolves players, brought the best out of many others, probably not premier class but we've not had many in the last 25 years who are. Was treated very poorly by our fans.

    He's been amazing for Glory this season. His brother lived in Perth anyway so he's settled right in. Carried on with the same form he had for Wolves vs Perth Glory in the pre-season game back in 2009.

    andy had what my daughter described as "jelly legs" when he got a goalscoring opportunity.

    One of the best performances i have ever seen from a Wolves player was him against Wigan in our first away game back in the prem.

    Legend! If only he hadn't been hit with injuries in our first year back in the Prem, might've been another story

    Against people who scapegoat him I will do but it was still a stupid thing to do (try to score from the halfway line when keeping the ball would've been a better option) when IIRC we were just minutes away from getting a point against Arsenal

    And the lad just seemed totally embarassed when confronted with a couple of Wolves fans. He seemed to be thinking "oh $$$$ what do I do now? where can I hide" we were also with a woman from the Commercial Department who he probably recognised rather than us two nondescript blokes

    Done well when at Wolves for the most part and was much maligned at times.

    However he has had nothing to do with Wolves for over 2yrs now so what he gets up to matters not.

    I believe Dewsbury that what fans say of players does get to them. I'm not saying that you have ever been obnoxious to him but as a number have pointed out including yourself he was always number 1 scapegoat on here after his first season at the club. The only other player who I think was subject to as much if more negative comment was Stephen Ward. RK probably didn't know whether you were naysayers or fans who would be more generous in your comments and appraisal of him.

    My experience was the complete opposite. Met him at a festival, he was more than happy to chat about Wolves pose for a photo and shake my hand. Admittedly it probably helped I introduced myself as a a Wolves fan and thanked him for his part in our relatively successful period.

    We didn't even get that far to be fair, he saw the Wolves Commercial Department girl & just seemed to shy away from talking to any us. Might have been wary that we'd give him pelters (I wouldn't have) over the various "issues" that had gone on towards the end of his time with us

    Stephen Hunt on the other hand was totally the opposite, apart from rushing back to the dressing room because he'd left his wedding ring in his tracksuit, he chatted with us for ages

    TBH Dews I actually quite liked Keogh. But sadly the Dave Edwards work rate and Kevin Doyle shooting was symptomatic of where we were as a team..Had its moments but ultimately frustrating....

    Bloody loved Keogh. Technically sound, tremendous work rate, absolutely unselfish, read the game very well in the attacking third, very good player. A true False Nine before the term ever got popularised.

    Agreed.

    His time to go had come, but I bloody loves watching him play for a few seasons.

    I probably shouldn't, but...

    I know you can splice together a few good clips, add epic music, and make anyone look like a world-beater, but he did play some very good football, I don't think that can be denied.
