The thing with Keaton is he's still young and will develop further. Before he went to Barnsley he was wafer thin and a lot of the time here in the YT he was told he had to increase his muscle mass. Seems to me from viewing yesterday he's bulked out quite a lot.
The days when Liam, Diz, Leroy, Bob and Andy spring to mind. Who would've wanted all those young uns in the team 20 years ago eh, and they clicked together into part of a team that was a joy to watch.
Our current class of 2021 could well do the same, who knows eh. To bin off young lads with a 'I hope not' attitude is too easy.
Nigel will decide ultimately. He knows he's something special with Ty and a 'steady' with Jason who'll fill in in multiple positions. Keaton is worth a punt, and Keaton would play for nothig to prove his point and get a chance.
Additions like we got when Les came 20 years ago are crucial as the glue to bind the young uns into a team with experience, but Geirge is also young too, it maybe we have another season to remember coming up.
