What a strange couple of days, but it has been on the cards that keane would be gone.
He just didn't fit into Rafa's favourite 4-2-3-1
And there's also the alleged boardroom power struggle between parry and rafa to consider.....
I hope Rafa gets what he wants in his new contract - we've missed out on too many players because of Parry dragging his feet.
Vidic and Ronaldo are the 2 that spring to mind.
That said, it was a good result yesterday - I actually feel a bit sorry for Lamps, but at the same time, it seemed clear that he was not in control of
the slide and he had his foot pretty high with studs up.
We were bossing the game, and we may even have scored earlier if Lamps hadn't gone off, as they would have had to start opening up, instead of just
trying to shut the door.
Nando looks like he is getting back to his best, and hopefully we can bag a win in the cup on wednesday.
I'm not sure we can win it - but we have been stronger in the 2nd half of the season every year under rafa, so fingers crossed
