Howay Keano!

Keane's accession not certain

In his latest statement issued through Sunderland AFC's website, Niall Quinn is particularly cagey and might even be seen to be preparing the fans for less than good news. In his last couple of inquests by the press Quinn has been at pains NOT to mention the name Keane, and has indicated that he will remain in charge for tomorrow's game against WBA. In his statement on the club's website Quinn said;

"Negotiations are ongoing and going well but it's something that's going to take time. Whatever happens, if it comes to fruition or not, we will tell people - not a third party.

This was thrust into the public limelight by a unconnected third party and it upset our calculations and upset the way that we had hoped it would go, it should not have happened.

We recovered from that and we're in the process of trying to get our target to come and join the club. It's going to take longer, we will let the people know when there is something to report."

Meanwhile, I read Roy Keane's secret diary, as told to John Aizlewood in The Times Online and I've never lughed so much this week, you can read the full article - here

Seems things are moving on. According to bbc, Keane was introduced to the players this morning and has been seen at the Stadium of Light this afternoon. What odds on promotion or relegation now? A trainee manager is just what we needed

Positive news at last?
Seems to me like a bunch of gamblers just exiting the bookies - £2m a year for a rookie manager?
One hell of a wager!
