    The biggest one for me is Robbie Keane.

    He made probably the worst season since I start watching the club almost bearable when he came here on loan. He was still only 29 at the time we had him but he could have been absolute quality for us if he had stayed the next three or four seasons under Lennon.

    Seeing him score the goal yesterday made me think what if. He would have been a great player for us in Europe and I wonder would he have regretted not staying for a few seasons, especially after the CL campaign in 2012/13 and all that. Maybe not, he was making a killing in LA at the time.
