I've not even defended him, you've just interpreted it that way. All I've done is pointed out where, in my opinion, people have gone over the top, like when they say someone is an embarrassment to their club.
I'd take Quaner now if it was affordable, which I'm sure it isn't. When fit he was useful to have and scored a handful of goals, if I remember correctly it just took him way too long to get up to speed after joining.
'It's understood several factors counted against Keogh. He was the club captain, a senior player and it was felt he should have taken more responsibility on the night in question. These reasons, coupled with a serious injury sustained through a non-football activity, are why the club have felt it necessary to terminate Keogh's contract.'
