Roy Keane for Sunderland?

Keane set to manage Sunderland

The media is a hot bed of activity with most newspapers and commentators convinced that Roy Keane the former Manchester United and Eire hot head is about to be appointed as Sunderland's next manager.

So we are about to get a rookie manager, to work alongside our rookie chairman, it must have taken some very smooth talking from Quinn to get Keane to take this job, the last time the two were together on a pitch, Keane refused to shake Big Niall's hand, after being sent off for sticking an elbow in Jason "Trigger" McAteer's face at the Stadium of Light in 2002. Niall was also on Mick McCarthy's side when the former Black Cats manager sent Keane back to Ireland from the World Cup that same year, Keane later described McCarthy as "a crap player, and a crap manager". I guess he now gets the chance to prove if he is going to be a better manager, and whether he can produce some special performances from a very poor team.

Meanwhile, the club are stating on their website that no managerial appointment has been made and that an official announcement will be made soon.

World Class!
