        He's saying that squad keepers should be playing in friendlies rather
        than our number one keeper. We need to give the younger lads
        experience of playing in international football and friendlies are the
        perfect place for that.

        Which is a fair point, to be fair. All credit to the point at the end of the
        day.

            Must be true because The Sun never mislead their readers. Ironically Given is the only player in the present Irish squad who is even in the same league as keane was as a player.


            By an accident of birth, the likes of Carsley, Kilbane, Robbie keane etc got to say they played on the same side as an absolute legend & present day Irish supporters can say they watched a true great don the Irish jersey. Whether they/we deserved the honour is a subject of debate & some come across as very ungrateful.





            As Cantona put it when keane left/was sent home from saipan " keane is a professional, Ireland are amateurs, he is too good for them". How true that rings now. Roy keane should have called time on his Ireland career far earlier than he did. Under Charlton he played with some worthy players : Houghton, Irwin Wheelan, MGrathetc but since that time he was like George Weah at liberia coming from one of the best teams in the world to play with a bunch of players who wouldn't get on his clubs 3rd team. It is his misplaced patriotism that meant he continued to play for Ireland & it is thanks to him (along with Given) that we had the pleasure of watching Irl play in the 2002 WC finals. the majority of Irish fans didn't deserve him nor could they recognise his talent and most of all his dedication to the team. Perhaps they prefer the prima donna's playing for us now!

              I'D FORGOTTEN what an oaf he can be. Since taking over as manager of Sunderland Football Club in England last year, Roy Keane has adapted to his new career so successfully and calmly that, for a while there, it seemed that he might have changed and that the paranoid and angry man who had thrown his rattle out of the pram during the 2002 World Cup no longer existed.





              Then, last week, with the fifth anniversary of Saipan fast approaching, Keane shipped up in Dublin to do some charity work and showed himself to be an even bigger pup than some of the guide dogs he was photographed with.


              Keane's attack on the Irish manager, Stephen Staunton, and on several named Irish players at a press conference on Wednesday was objectionable on many levels.


              On Friday morning, on Newstalk's breakfast programme, John Giles dismissed Keane's comments on the basis that they didn't make much sense in footballing terms.


              Giles knows as much about football as anybody, and what he said seemed sound to me.


              But it wasn't in footballing terms that Keane's comments were so illuminating. It was in what they said about him as a human being, about his willingness to kick somebody when they're down (which, of course, we'd seen many times before on the pitch), to lead a baying mob and to play to the gallery at the expense of somebody who is under the most enormous pressure.


              Even people who have no interest in football will be aware that Staunton is in a bit of difficulty in his job. You can't get away from that knowledge, even if you wanted to. Two recent results . . . a narrow win over San Marino, a hefty defeat against Cyprus (neither country regarded as one of the great footballing nations) . . .


              received press coverage that treated both (particularly the San Marino victory) as evidence of impending apocalypse. (This is being written before yesterday's match against Wales; whether Ireland won, lost or drew, the hostility to Staunton seems set to continue. ) In an interview printed last week, though conducted more than a month ago, Staunton likened the newspaper coverage following the San Marino game to the reporting of a murder case. He was right. For three or four days, Staunton was treated as Public Enemy Number One and with the same level of contempt and hatred as is often meted out to gangland criminals. Staunton was Villain Of The Week and was treated with a shocking lack of perspective or humanity.


              Sacreligious though it may be to say so, football is only a game, and unless we are very sad people indeed, it does not affect our well being. (Not in the long term, anyway). So while disappointment at sporting failure is inevitable and understandable, its regular transmutation into hysteria and overreaction is much less so.


              What Staunton (and, to a lesser extent, Brian Kerr before him) is suffering from is the recent elevation of the mob to the role of key decision maker in Irish life. The mob, with its ravenous demand for instant gratification, its insatiable appetite for somebody, anybody, to blame when things go wrong, is fuelling the hysteria and ensuring that no matter of national controversy or dispute can be progressed in a level-headed fashion.


              Staunton, who doesn't have the easy personality or
              New infraction avoidance policy: a post may be described as imbecilic, but its author should never be described as an imbecile.

                I simply dont understand why Keane gets so upset by the Irish soccer team. He should let it go as he's far too professional for that crowd of losers. He actually seems to care far too much about Irish football &amp; the irish team. They're a waste of space. he should concentrate on watching &amp; supporting Munster rugby &amp; the cork hurlers as the players have far more in common with him &amp; share his professionalism.

                  stan is not aleader of men and will never make a conference manager nevermind a national team-i watched the game against wales and the tactics were a joke-well there was none-it was a performance of headless amateurs. slovakia by 2 clear goals on wed.

                  keane is right about stan and the mediocre players he keeps picking out of loyalty

                        Since when did keane become the model professional. he spent half his playing career in a pub by his own admission. He deliberately set out to cripple a fellow professional, by his own admission,in an horrific tackle. He walked away from his fellow professionals and an expectant nationon the eve of a World Cup. Keane was a player with great potential but never realised it because of a lack of professionalism. He reached the top of a second rate league but that's all.

                          Keane is "gentleman, a class act, a rebel and he stands up to bullies" - get it right FFS!!


                          ps he only bothered his arse about Ireland when Fergie gave him the ok to do so.

Yeah why should anyone be arsed about playing for their country or province. Sher didn't all the cool cats back in 90's say yeah that Irishrugby team is a bunch of LOSERS I'll feck off to my new friends so I can go and win something.He actually seems to care far too much about Irish football , yes indeedy I'm assuming MCork you've never played a team sport of any kind if you think walking out on your team mates is a sign of caring &amp; the irish team. They're a waste of space. he should concentrate on watching &amp; supporting Munster rugby would that be team who played 5 seasons of the HEC without owning a scrum machine , shurely such a shamatureish bunch of wasters don't deserve the suport of the almighty Roy. A team whokept losing inthe really big matches, sher by Roy's philosophy those lads wereonly happy in their comfort zone and didn't want to push themselves.&amp; the cork hurlers as the players have far more in common with him &amp; share his professionalism. Well if professinalism involves whining about not getting picked when you were 15 I guess Roy's in a league of his own alright.

                              Thanks for proving my point Neiljung. Keane was simply too good a
                              player for the irish set-up. A lot of supporters &amp; press are deeply
                              suspicous of winners like him having been fed on mediocrity &amp; "ah
                              shur we'll have a laugh, we're paddies" attitude for years, things that
                              Keane abhors. In France, his determination &amp; professionalism would
                              have made him extremely popular, of course he'd have been surrounded by
                              players of a similar attitude like Henry, Viera etc. but as I've said in
                              Ireland we dont like
                              winners, we prefer guys who fail as in a way it makes us feel good
                              about ourselves.


                              Regarding Munster rugby team, they're one of the most professional
                              rugby set-ups around. just ask the likes of halsteat, le Puc,
                              Cullen who've remarked at lenght on this in interviews. As for the
                              Irish team, I've criticised EOS a lot for things but one thing I'd give
                              him 10/10 is for professionalism &amp; his attention to detail. kerr
                              tried to introduce the same for the soccer side so the players let it
                              be known they didn't want it. I guess they're happier with their old
                              drinking buddy in charge. I'm glad someone is happy.
