Newcastle Have Great Chance Of Promotion – Keane

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.

    I was reading the Dwight Yorke stuff on Keane at the weekend…sounds like a right twat of a manager.

    Slapped his captain round the head and Kung Fu kicked the tactics boards at half time 🙂

    Bet he is a nightmare of a manager…After he left Sunderland Dwight texted him saying good luck and all that and this was his response :

    He has no people skills..he thinks he is some kind of Football God and has managerial ideas way above his station.

    I just can’t see how a player can be inspired by his dated “Hard Guy” managerial approach…..Hope he is sacked along with the Phil”I am a ChocolateOrange”Brown.

    Not every great player becomes even a good manager, let alone a great one.

    Keano proves the rule completely. He is nothing like being a good manager!!

    Roy Keane was recently quizzed by police about an alleged, unprovoked attack on a pregnant woman. When asked why he attacked the woman, he replied: “I didn’t realise that she was pregnant, I thought that it was a 50-50 ball that she had up her jumper!!!”

    To be a good manager, you need good people skills. Keane doesn’t!

    a great little club ed do you realise how patronising that sounds to an ipswitch fan. that is the kind of comment I would expect from a man utd fan not from a fan that has won sod all in fifty years has just been relegated from the big league to the little league and is off the field the laughing stock of the football world. Maybe we are not as big as we think ed and concidering some of the sucess that ipswitch have had maybe the only difference between us and them is we get a few more to watch our home games. And they have been big enough to name a stand after the great sir Bobby robson and he has not even been there in over twenty tears . Our clubs hiarechy should be ashamed of themselves and you ed should choose your comments more carefully until we do something that can make us proud to be called big again and thus make clubs like ipswitch look small in comparison. I wont hold my breath.

    before any comments i realise that ed did not call us big but by the way the comment about ipswitch was made i think it was safe to asume that ed must think we are big if ipswitch is small

    That bad news for Keane and I’m sure he knows it, is that Newcastle may get promoted, but will need a complete new team to stand any hope of survival in the Premiership. Anyone seeing Fulham v Arsenal or some other matches will see the gulf (even between us and Fulham) is massive.

    I don’t mind Keane, as a footballer he was commited (or mental dependant on viewpoint) tho he’s very likely to be sacked soon as a manager.
    Trouble is that he reminds me of Shearer school of mgmt – Shearer has already had a scuffle with Barton and has history in his time as captain – knocking out Gillespie, threatening to punch out Bellamy kicking in the door of Rudd Gullit – they might all of been complete spanners who deserved a kicking but its not really what you want from someone who is meant to be leading by example

    “All credit to breakfast cereals. Also, the previous segment actually ran 67 seconds and not the 30 seconds as advertised. Thank you.”

    “Very good Roy.”

    C`mon folks, whats with the Roy Keane vitriol ?
    Yeah he played for the Mancs and managed the Mackems, so what.
    Guy was unquestionably the best midfielder in the PL ever, so lighten up, give the guy a break, could say the same about Shearer, best Cf in the PL.
