Wolverhampton Wanderers have confirmed a loan deal has been agreed with Leeds United for Andy Keogh to join The Whites until January. 

Remember Andy Keogh? It’s no real surprise if you don’t, because he only ever managed one appearance the first time he played for Leeds United and that was as a substitute in a Worthless Cup game.

These were the crazy days of Kevin Blackwell when inadequate players were simply thrown onto the scrapheap (aside from those he put in white shirts and allowed to run around for 90 minutes of course). Nowadays these very same players have become the bread and butter of our squad.

In fairness to Andy, he was only a kid when he was at Elland Road the first time and Kevin Blackwell is to football management, what Carlton Palmer was to England’s midfield.

But since Keogh left Leeds his CV hardly proves our former manager wrong. This is a player whose goal average ranks him alongside Enoch Showunmi for Christ sake. Last season for example he was loaned out to Cardiff City and then Bristol City, where, between the two spells he managed 3 goals in 25 appearances.

I don’t mean to be too down on the lad, but we were supposed to be finding cover for Luciano Becchio and Davide Somma. This is more like crashing your Porsche and being sent a Fiat as a courtesy car – it’s embarrassing.

Did you ever think you’d see the day that our own rejects were begged to return to save our behinds from a good spanking at the hands of Hull City?

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to ‘Living The Dream’ Ken Bates style!
