    I reckon Keane grew that beard so he could go into the dressing room at half time dressed like King Leonidas from 300 and deliver a rousing ‘for Sparta/Wearside’ war-cry.
    That or his tactics are spot-on.

    Simply one of the greatest managerial achievements in British football history. Keane was born to be a great player and it seems he was taught, by Clough and Fergie, to be a great manager.

    24th to probable champions… Simply astonishing. He’s now my main man for the Ingerland job once MackCack is tossed… Wouldn’t see him hold back on giving hot air players like Lampard the boot…
