...and Villa was having the tourney of his life as well, not saying he isn't great, but everything was clicking for him.
Made him captain of my Euro fantasy team from the start, worked out quite well for me. :) But the fact that Villa gets picked over Torres when they play with the lone striker speaks a lot to me, though that's neither here nor there.

Yeah, but is it the norm or exception? I mean, there are curious decisions by national coaches all over the place. Evra comes to mind. ;)

I can think of another French defender who is mistreated, but..... I'd better not. ;)

To be fair, I can't think of any person of sound intelligence thinking Keane is better than Berbs, and I used to be a fan of Robbie Keane, but the bottom line is, Berbatov just does everything better, I can't even believe Keane is at a club as big as Liverpool to be honest.

Yeah, I left him off with good reason as well. ;)

Keane does have quality, but to so it is up there with Berba's is just laughable. The amount of attention Berba received as compared to Keane by defenders while they were at Spurs spoke volumes as well. Keane definitely should have sent a thank you note to Berbs for making life easier for him.

They've actually chosen to play Kuyt through the middle a couple of times, while El Niño has been out, instead of Keane. That should pretty much decimate any Scouser's argument on who's better.

Even as the resident gayer, I can't even muster up the strength for that one :D

To stay on topic, Keane sucks and Ronnie should be sold.

First of all, you must be prepared to not convince them.

These Liverpool fans, they are a bitter lot. They are like the kid who was making the pretty girl laugh at the party and just as they were going to make their move, the handsome, popular guy asks her for a dance and she leaves him and glances bakc with a look that says "you made me laugh, but I wanna have this guy's babies and be banged so hard I can't walk tomorrow"..

what were we talking about again?

oh yeah, ok so you need to take a higher ground. First you throw your stance out there

"What?! Robbie Keane is good, but Berbatov is so much better. Way better. he's in a different league."

Then you must let them talk. Don't interrupt. They will try to sucker you in. Oh yes they will, but thou shalt resist."

Be chill!

If they try to sucker you in, just ask them to tell you all that's good about Robbie keane.

Once they're done, you start. You hit them where it hurts.

You start with his control. They might make some noises, but in their hearts they know it's true. berbatov's first touch is magnetic.

You say that, then you say heis touch is so good it often looks like the ball is glued to his boot. Keane's touch is heavier. Berbtov's is a much more delicate and softer touch. more skillful. he caresses the ball.

Then the movement with the ball. Keane, you say, is a good athlete (always the sugar first), but he is workman like when he runs with the ball. (then the spice)
Berbatov, you say, is graceful, almost like watching a ballet dancer.

Then you talk about skill. Have they seen Robbie Keane do a skill like Berbatov against West Ham, there will be silence followed by an attempt to digress.

You steer them back, like a matador taming a bull.

You say, "No, no. let's talk about skill. Has Keane produced flashes of brilliant skill like that?"

They will try, but they will fail.

Finally you talk about goals.

You say, Berba had a better goal per game ratio at Spurs and has a better goal per game ration at United than keane at Liverpool.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robbie_Keane
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dimitar_Berbatov

They might say Keane helped Berba score those goals, you will say likewise.

Then you will say "You can talk all you want about preference and work rate, but in terms of first-touch, ball control, dribbling and output, Dimitar berbatov is clearly better that Robbie Keane!"


OR YOU COULD JUST SAY, SHUT THE **** UP YOU LIVERPOOL-SUPPORTING, UNDER-ACHIEVING BITTER, BITTER ****S. DIMITAR BERBATOV IS BETTER THAN ROBBIE KEANE, BECAUSE HE PLAYS FOR MANCHESTER UNITED AND NEVER GOT ROBBED!
Just thought this would be a good time to state that Berbatov is categorically better than Robbie Keane. :)

Anybody else think Berbatov was making Keane look better than he was while they were together at Tottenham?

Keane is twice the finisher Berbatov is and his movement ratio is higher lots
yes yes he don't provide half what Bebra provide from passing and playing distribue
but if we had Keano he would have been challenging Anelka by now as i saw billion chances getting wasted this season that Keano find them an easy joy
Berba have a better touch but his finishing is up to the arse when its compared to Keane

plus we won't need making a new chants if we had keane ;) (joking no body deserves Roy's chants )

Overall Berba is better but i would have much preferred Keane coz he seems to have a passion for the game more than Berba and not a lazy bugger

btw Cappy said Keane is a poor man Rooney and i don't agree coz Keane is much better infront of the goal
imo Keane is a poor man Villa
