Roy Keane hardly looked comfortable on Saturday night, as his Ipswich team was ripped apart by a dominant Newcastle United side.
Roy Keane – Ipswich manager
And the performance by his defense, and we use the word defense loosely, was just hopeless, and really every Newcastle goal was an Ipswich defensive mistake.
Yes, Roy seems to have a lot of work ahead of him to get Ipswich back on track.
But Roy has shown at Sunderland he can do it, and it would be good to see him revive Ipswich, which is such a great little club with excellent fan support.
Talking about Chris Hughton and the fact Chris is still only the caretaker boss at Newcastle, Roy Keane said today:
“I have no sympathy for him after this. I cannot comment on other clubs, but when you talk about the long term I bet Big Sam thought he had the long term there and he did not get it.”
“Chris will probably end up being there the longest of them all. He should just enjoy it. He has focused on the job, they have started well, and they have a great chance.”
“They have good, strong players, They have the momentum going already. It is massive in football.”
“Every manager would like some experience in their squad, we have bits but not the 600s or even the 300s. (Kevin) Nolan, (Nicky) Butt, they have all played that sort of number of games.”
Certainly Newcastle looked great on Saturday night, and one thing that has surprised Newcastle fans, is that no team will have greater desire than Newcastle this season.
And that was there in abundance for all to see at Ipswich.
What a difference from last season.
