Itâ€™s been noticeable that Damien Duff has not even been in Kevin Keegan’s squad of 16 for the last two games.
Damien Duff – just a dip in form?
So itâ€™s obvious that questions will be brought up about Duffâ€™s future at the club, if indeed he cannot make the squad of 16 in future games. Itâ€™s early days yet, and it may well be that Damien is just having a run of bad form, and will be back in the side shortly.
But the longer he stays out the more the doubts will mount over his future.
We believe that Kevin will move about 6 players out in the summer and bring 6 in. He doesnâ€™t really need to increase the size of the squad much because we have good youngsters like Kadar, Tozer and the like coming through the ranks, and pressing for first team status next season.
The players we think will leave include Carr, Ameobi, Rozehnal, Cacapa and perhaps Ramage, and Kevin will bring in top players to replace them and thereby improve the squad greatly.
We think Duff has too much ability to be let go, so weâ€™re hoping itâ€™s just a lack of form and Kevinâ€™s new 4-3-3 formation as to why he hasnâ€™t been involved in our last two matches.
What do you think about this?
