Keane Quits Man United..Shocker !

Roy Keane, that paragon of reasoned, intelligent debate and gentleman footballer, has left Manchester United today. Apparently 'by mutual consent'. Some may suggest that they've finally had enough of Keano and sacked the bugger. Not me though...that could be libellous.

Both parties have put out the usual platitudes in their press releases : 'great servant to the club', 'time for me to move on', 'best midfielder of his generation' could write this stuff yourselves. But it all seems a little too hasty to be truly amicable and I'm looking foward to Roy Keane putting his foot in his mouth in the future over this.

In all honesty, Keane has become a bit of a liability in recent months and it's probably time he left. I also think he was overrated as a 'leader' and captain. If shouting at people in an Irish accent was leadership, the Rev Ian Paisley would be Emperor of the World.

What has any of this got to do with the World Cup. Um...well, The Republic of Ireland need a manager. A bit tenuous, I know.
