Haven't seen anything on this:
Good move for Kasey. Hopefully he shows well with Southampton and can find a situation where he gets more playing time in January.
Kasey might even save a manager's job if he performs well saturday. Wigley is in the hot seat and conventional wisdom states that a win over your south-coast neighbo'u'r would go a long way toward cooling the seat. OTOH, a loss to Pompey and Wigley is Trumped.
Just in case anyone isn't reading the links, this is a month's loan for now.
This may explain why he didn't play in the Carling Cup match for Spurs this week, which I found kind of odd.
Saints obviously liked Kasey because he is so good you can't score on him even by using an extra ball:
BBC has it too.
A month long loan, I wonder if this changes any allocation bidness for ReAL?
Certainly it's only a month long so it doesn't mean he wouldn't be available but at the same time, if he produces during that month a permanent transfer to Southampton could be in the works. Interesting.
Lets not get too hopeful of a prolonged move here.
Keller's been signed until Dec 9th because they have injuries their 2 top keepers.
Antti Niemi (age 32) had a very good season last year and will take back the starting job when healthy. He's pretty much in his prime right now.
Paul Smith is in his mid 20s and is a very capable backup or possibly an heir to Niemi.
I don't see anyway this would turn into a full transfer to Southampton.
If Keller wants to stay in Europe, the best thing for him is to use this time to interest another team for a possible transfer in January.
Just being realistic.
This is great for Kasey. A chance to show the world "I still got it"....a good showing will help him stay at this level for a couple more years (which I think he can.....). The money is just too good to walk away from...
Wow! I loved seeing this news this morning.
Unless Saints sell Niemi or he goes down long term, Keller's going to lose his spot.
This is great for Kasey, a turn in the shop window. Maybe the new Tottenham coach will see something he likes, or at least a perspective buyer.
Good for Kasey. He has Portsmouth, Norwich, CP and ManU to look forward to over the coming weeks. It would be nice if his deal got extended so he could face THFC on Dec 18th.
i belive Keller would stay in the Premiership if he found a team to play for regulary,
the ReAL thing won't happen unless there is no other choice for him and we all know he really wants to be in his home state if he were to return
Good news. Where was Kasey when he found out?
Was he already here training with the USMNT for Jamaica next week or was he still in London? Does this mean Joe Cannon starts next Wednesday in Columbus?
Even if it is just a short-term loan it's a great opportunity for KK to show everyone over there what he can still do. Let's hear it for the always popular special dispensations under rule M5!
This might give Keller another shot, but don't expect him to turn any heads. The Saints have one of (in not the) worst defenses in EPL. There is a reason why they're in last place.
Even if the loan was extended, I don't beleive he could by FA rules regarding loans. Players can't play against the team that loaned them out.
Hey... where's the love for the Blackburn defense... now there's a real crappy defense - most goals against in the league!!! and Friedels actually havnig a decent year... that defense just sucks soooo bad.
A lot of teams have given up more goals than Southampton, but then Niemi has been a very good keeper for them.
They have a mediorce defense but I wouldn't call it the worst. Fulham, West Brom, Charlton, Newcastle, Norwich, and Blackburn have all let in more goals.
Excellent. Good luck, Kasey.
isn't that just a clause that some teams put into their loan contracts? i know carlton cole can't play against chelsea but look at morientes last year against real madrid
Good for Keller -- glad to see him get some playing time and thrown right in the mix of the south coast derby. Hope he does well.
Hence prk saying it was an FA rule, not UEFA or FIFA rule.
Ya, it's just the FA makign the rule. IIRC earlier this season Wenger complained about it cuz Bentley couldn't play against Arse. I understand why they do it, their is a conflict of interest. Well, a POTENTIAL conflict of interest. Personally, I think the club that is borrowing the player should be able to decide if that's an issue for them or not.
He's going to shut out the skates!!!
