Searching for the Young Soul Rebels. Without question.

Donít Stand Me Down is more apt donít you think? Especially after his goal.

I'm kind of projecting onto KD, to be honest. No idea what the lad himself would go for. The point stands, though, he would choose Searching for the Young Soul Rebels. If he doesn't he can eff off to Walsall on loan.

It's sort of of tragihilarious that we're having this discussion. I'm 43, which is technically too young for Dexys. Keinan is 22. He'd think we were talking about own-brand paint from Wickes or something.

Has a whiff of some £4.00 hipster can of craft lager or something too. I went to Wickes the other day, I didn't buy any paint though.

Theyíre actually named after a form of whizz. Sadly Iím old enough to remember the awkwardness on Tiswas when the great Sally James asked them where they got the name from.

I rather keep KD and loan out Wes9.
However this talk of a loan for KD to give him some football and us some squad space for another far more prolific attacker could be something that works for all parties.
If only Davis could finish ruthlessly he be a near starter.
The impact of Buendia I see giving KD more goal scoring chances but I don't know if we can all be confident on him finishing!
I sure some activity and announcements will be made in coming week or so with him and whichever attacking players we sign up.

Yes, to me Keinan is far more impressive than Mad Wes.

'Impressive' you say.
From a low base, I'd say.
Neither is good enough to enable the squad to move on to the next level, IMHO.

He's physical, got good movement and has clever feet as well, as he showed when he finally got a decent run-out against Fulham.

but crucially, he hardly ever scores, and that's what strikers are supposed to do.

Yes, that's important - but he also hardly ever plays.  I don't think he's had a proper run of consecutive games since Bruce was here, and he was what, 19 or 20?  I certainly do NOT think he's the answer as far as a back-up to Ollie is concerned - at least not at this stage of his development - but I also don't think it's fair to point to his goalscoring record when his minutes on the pitch are very few and far between.  His premier league record for the whole of last season is 1 goal and 1 assist from 15 appearances, which sounds crap, but the minutes in those 15 "appearances" came to less than three games in total.

He should really have been out on loan last season, or even the one previous, but where the club was in its development we couldn't afford to let him go and leave an even bigger gap at centre forward. That was to the detriment of his development, but I'm grateful for the cover he provided (even though it thankfully wasn't really needed).

I really hope he goes on loan somewhere in the Championship where he'll get some chances, hopefully score some goals and get the experience he needs to really develop as a player of his age.

As I've said, I don't necessarily think he's good enough to be a long-term part of our first-team picture, but I certainly don't think he's anywhere near as bad as some people make out. It wouldn't surprise me to see him playing regularly in the top flight in a few years time, though probably not with us.
