    Yep, I’m a huge fan, he’s up there with Eric in terms of influence for me. Sad then, that he’s actually been saying we should stick with Vsn Gaal. It’s a funny old game.

    All of the players need a kick up the arse. High wages and low expectations are the order of the day lately.

    I fully believe that a change of mentality, with zero new signings, would gain us at least 15 more points in a league season. Such is the terrible ineptitude of the apologists in management at the minute.

    jm1502 – Managers or wannabe managers will always argue against a manager being fired for obvious reasons.

    Maybe he feels that the players are part of the problem, not just LVG? I don’t know. He and Martin O’Neill have done brilliantly for Ireland. We’re heading to the Euros thinking we might pick up a point or two, unlike last time, three games and three defeats.

    He certainly wouldn’t be saying to show support for Fergie, I don’t think Roy would piss on Fergie if he was on fire

    @123mike. Never mate. Keono was a great captain but is way too much of a maniac to be the gaffer.

    He’d be a great assistant, wouldn’t see him sitting idly by while the manager made shit of the club a la Ryan Giggs

    Not really, I think he just expects the same standards others as he set for himself. That’s the problem he faces in general, I don’t think it makes him a twat but it probably makes him very difficult to get on with in everyday life.
    Ask most people who’ve met him and they say he’s quite approachable but there’s a fierceness about him at the same time which can make him quite unnerving, a drive and a fire that still burns from his playing days.

    I agree that he sets high standards but he doesn’t know where the line is and holds massive grudges especially against sir Alex. It’s what made him a great player and captain.

    He’s Utd’s John Terry only better and not racist.

    Never compare Keane to John Terry, that’s just an insult no matter how you wrap it up! Not even in the same league on the pitch and not an absolute w@nker off it.
    KillyBoye – How do you think we’ll get on in the Euro’s, if we beat Sweden we’ve got a chance? (Cue Mac telling me off for talking about Ireland on the Man Utd forum!)

    The issue with Alex pre-dates his leaving the club. The relationship began to deteriorate long before that. Roy and Carlos Queiroz didn’t get on well and Roy felt Sir Alex, unfairly, sided with Carlos on almost every issue they had. The way he left the club was the ultimate insult for Roy.
    I’m sure Roy isn’t blameless either to be honest. Fergie was ruthless though, he had to be and Roy understood that to an extent but the way it ended rankles with him even after all these years.
    I think Martin O’Neill is giving Roy a bit more insight into the man management side of the business. It will be interesting to see how he gets on if he gets another job in management

    I would like to see Keane as manager. Certainly more than Giggs. Keane would certainly demand passion and commitment. One of SAF strengths was the hairdryer and for sure Keano knows how to blast it. BUT he would need a mollycuddler as number 2, somebody to help wipe away the tears after Keano had ripped them a new one.

    As for Fergie factor it would be the fear factor. Can you imagine Keano ranting at the refs from the touchline.

    We say players hould manage small side to get experience. Experience means making mistakes and learning from them. But when a young manager makes mistakes some fans write him off. I dont see the logic there.

    Keane might be better suited to international management where you have regular breaks to reflect and calm down. Opposed to the everyday stresses which come with club management.

    Keane would be a disaster at United. He may demand a few things that club is lacking at the moment. But he also has a Van Gaal in him, where he would not care what a player thinks and most likely cause conflict.

    Reading Klopp’s comments this week. He said how little belief the Liverpool squad had in them and how hard he had to work to turn that around. We need someone who can build confidence within the squad, not someone who will put them down when they need a bit of belief.

    Would certainly have a thing or two to say to LVG regarding expectations.Could not see that relationship lasting more than 90 secs.

    Roy’s own high demands/expectations sometimes culminating in his over-aggressivnes and outspoken versions were the only negatives on his attitude/character but then again,what would his footballing career been without those same demands pushing him on.

    He was wrong in his public questioning of authority with SAF but correct in his passion for United high expectations leading him to speak out in favour of improving issues that were being neglected.

    Keane for manager ? Some would take Simeone in an instant and there is no big difference between the two except in footballing abilities.

    As for supporting LVG, the Mac’s version is more than valid.

    Roy is more than a legend for United.More of the ultimate flag bearer.

    That is why most of us may have UN-intentionally judged all the mid-fielders that came after him in a lower dimension.
