He was always excellent at that, the speed of the pass into feet and his awareness was first class.I love these montages. Keane in his final season with us, aged 34, performing better than any of our current midfielders could do. I think Rooney said Keane was the best he played with at delivering short passes to the forwards.
Statistically his last full season was actually pretty good. He had a high pass accuracy as always and something like 3 tackles per game. It was helped a lot by the 4-3-3 formation and Fletcher doing a lot of his running for him but as a brain on the pitch he still had a lot of worth to the team. Some big performances at Anfield and Highbury that year too.
