Farewell Roy Keane


One of the greatest footballers of the modern era, Manchester United captain ROY KEANE, has left the club today by mutual agreement.


It'll be some time before all the full story be told but things had clearly been building to a head for some time and the clear sighted United captain was clearly in a mood to be uncompromising about the problems the Red Devils have been facing on the pitch for the last couple of seasons and felt the time had come to go.







Thanks for twelve years of glory Roy, you certainly did it your way.

It's still sad that he's gone. Too sad.

hey there tony, professional football is a passionate sport and a hard business.

With a headstrong player like Keano and an equally hard miner's son like Fergie, there was only ever going to be one result, but yes, it's very sad, literally the end of an era.
