Roy Keane's rant about SAF Empty Roy Keane's rant about SAF

Post by Guest Sun Dec 18, 2011 7:46 pm

Referring to his controversial MUTV interview of 2005 : "I swapped games with Gary Neville, I was meant to do Tottenham at home, Tottenham never win at Old Trafford, that would have been easy. But MUTV is dangerous, United get beaten 10-nil and let’s look on the bright side, let’s take the positive, it wasn’t 11. So I swap with Gary, I get the away game at Boro and it’s like, ‘Go easy on the lads here’. They were beaten 4-1 and I’ve got to say it was great that it wasn’t five."
Quote:
On his relationship with Mr Alex Ferguson and his exit : "I look back at the relationship and I sometimes wonder if it wasn’t about me being good for him and good for the club. People say he stood by me in difficult times. But not when I was 34, not when I was towards the end and had a few differences with Carlos Queiroz. All of a sudden then, ‘Off you go, Roy, and here’s the statement we’ve done, and here this and here’s that’.”

Absolutely [when asked if he believed he would not have been kicked out of the club had he made the comments when he was 27]. I had disagreements with the manager over many years. I remember one really bad one, I might have been 26 or 27, something happened at a Christmas do, it was a proper blazing row, but he dealt with it.

Clever management, you recognise when players are really important to you.I go back to the two words, power and control. ‘Say this, Roy, do this, pull this in a little bit’, what I did or said was always for the good of the club. I suffered for that towards the end, then it was unacceptable. The difference was that I was 34."

On Ferguson's style of management: "People say Ferguson always does what’s right for Man United. I don’t think he does. I think he does what’s right for him. The Irish thing [Ferguson’s aborted legal action against John Magnier over the breeding rights to Coolmore Stud stallion Rock Of Gibraltar], I was speaking to the manager about it. This didn’t help the club, the manager going to law against its leading shareholder. How could it be of benefit to Man United? It wasn’t and we know what happened. What was that all about? Power and control. ‘They’ve used me, they’ve treated me badly’, Ferguson told me in his office. I said, ‘You’re not going to win’, and he said, ‘I don’t care, no-one does that to me’, and I go, ‘Okay, off you go, I’m not going to change your mind’. Amazing what happens."


On his refusal to attend Mr Ferguson's 25th Anniversary celebrations: "Anne Wiley, the club secretary, got in touch, but I didn’t go. Everyone to their own. Martin (O’Neill) said to me, ‘You’ve got to move on’, but I wouldn’t have felt comfortable. ‘No, not for me’, I said. I did get in touch with Anne, didn’t just not turn up. The way it ended, the legal letter, I couldn’t have gone and sat there like everything was great, he would come in and we all stand up and clap. I couldn’t do that."


Wow...... Suspect

Keano :bow:

The only guy who doesn't praise SAF unconditionally no matter what.

One of the few United legends as I've always admired this leader.

It's written in Yanited lore that past players are bound to kiss the club's arse no matter what and to never criticize the club despite glaring mistakes and errors

Keane said screw that noise and does what he wants :bow:

People seem to have some idea that Keane was just a hatchet man. Bollocks. He was the greatest midfielder of his generation. He had it all. He really was one of the most complete players I have ever seen. Keane was the inspiration behind the most successful side in English club history. The Keane & Scholes partnership will go down as one of the greatest in the history of football, but make no mistake about it, Keane was the leader when they were both at their peak. He was a level above Gerrard, I have no doubt whatsoever about that. As for Vieira, that debate will never end. It all depends who you ask, I would give it to Keane

A level above Gerrard?

That's rich.

Poor man's uncomposed version of Makalele......as Makalele aptly showed him during his time at Chelsea.

Comparing him to a peak Viera is a joke.

You want to say he's better than Scholes....fine...I have no problem.....other than it being completley false.

Heck Essien was better at his peak.

You clearly have no idea what you're talking about.I'm a Chelsea fan but Essien was never anywhere near the level Keane was.

Amazing player,nobody like him in the game today.
