Rumour Mill-Laws Looking For a Keogh Punch?

Rumour Mill-Laws Looking For a Keogh Punch?

Brian Laws, according to Alan Biggs in the News of the World is also keeping tabs on another of his ex-Scunthorpe forwards, Andy Keogh.

The Wolves 23 year old Republic of Ireland international striker could leave Wolves in the window after making just 11 appearances for Mick McCarthy's side this season. He has scored just one goal so far in 2009-10 but it was a crucial one against fellow strugglers Wigan at the DW Stadium.

The former Leeds United striker who can also play on the wing left Scunthorpe United after two years at the club in January 2007 to join Wolves. He signed a 3 and a half year contract for an initial £600,000 potentially rising to £850,000 with add-ons.

Would we get someone from Wolves seeing where they are placed in the league?

Well if they are not playing him, I don't see why not if we can afford his wages?

Point taken tmp but his PL scoring record is nothing to shout home about. Do we want another person up front who is not netting enough!

The real issue is "does he fit in with what we have?" and is he any better than Nugent or Thompson? If so and the price is right then grab him.

Burnley fans, Andy Keogh has not played since early December because he was injured and had to have 2 operations on his ankle ligaments and tendons. He has only just returned to light training but even when fully fit, any club with aspirations to sign him will have to convince Mick McCarthy to sell him and that will be extremely difficult! Mick is renown down here for playing his 'favourites' regardless of position or form and Keogh is most definitely one of his 'favourites', so my advice to Burnley would be advised to look elsewhere!

Not sure Keogh will score the goals we need. A big problem at the moment is missing chances and as much as I like Nuge and Fletch - they are both guilty of this. We perhaps need an 'AndyPayton' ie. someone who doesnt do much in the build up. but sticks his chances away.

We created great chances at OT but I agree with Claretdale we need finishers who can get one in 4 not the one in 20 we seem to have at the moment. Bit harsh by me but hope you know what I mean.

I am still of the opinion Martin Paterson could be the key to getting this right up front. But he will need a partner be that Fletcher or Nugent. Jay Rod is also an option when he's fit again. I thought Thommo did well yesterday to be honest and was unlucky when he headed against post.

We need someone to really click and start to bag lots of goals. I thought that Paterson would do this at the beginning of the season but he missed too many before getting injured.
