Keane shows defensive excellence.

Michael Keane seems to have addressed his consistency problems, and is now showing week in week out what an excellent defender Burnley’s Ben Mee is.

 The 24 year old, who joined the club for £25m in July 2017, showed early glimpses of being a competent defender. However, under the guidance of Ronald Koeman, David Unsworth and latterly Sam Allardyce, he looks to have put those problems behind him.

 With each passing game, Keane has looked more and more a £5m defender. The Stopfordian was full of praise for Ben Mee and how he had helped put him in the position he is today:

 “I owe Ben Mee a lot. I’ve somehow managed to land a move to Everton, a bumper salary and four England caps based on his defensive performances. I can’t praise him enough. I hope to find a similarly good defender here at Everton that I can also take the plaudits for – bit it’s not looking promising. God I miss you Ben,” he wept.
