Roy Keane However, presently we do not possess any details about the actual artisan Roy Keane. I felt Keane's book was more fluently written, did not jump around as much and had the benefit of not being scrutinised to death by lord knows how many legal-eagles. In the second half there was a lot of talking about matches Roy had as manager at Sunderland that I felt was filler. Includes a prelude read by Sir Alex Ferguson. Audio has emerged of defender Stephen Ward apparently describing last May's incident. But he doesn't pander to anyone or sensationalize any event. For me, Keane's book smacked of more honesty and less glibness.
Nobody is bigger than any team, but if it weren't for players like Keane, Ferguson wouldn't have his stand, his statue, his knighthood or his trophies. In an 18-year playing career for Cobh Ramblers, Nottingham Forest, and Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson and Celtic, Roy Keane dominated every midfield he led to glory. Do I think it could have been handled differently? Today, players are sold for tens of millions, clubs are valued in the billions, and games are beamed out to nearly 200 countries, all while the league struggles to preserve its English soul. Just listen to the intro and you'll realize that this auto-bio is truly magnificent. Throughout his playing career, he was synonymous with Total Football, a style of play in which every player could play in any position on the pitch.
Finally, I feel the author often used profanity in a somewhat gratuitous fashion. In the follow-up to his critically acclaimed account of Guardiola's first full season at Bayern, Pep Confidential, Perarnau now lifts the lid on the Catalan's whole tenure in Bavaria. In the audio, Ward claims Keane criticised Arter and striker Jonathan Walters for not taking part in training. He gives an honest account of what happened and the reason it happened. Over all, I'd say this is worth a read.
I wanted to finish it but the story was kinda boring. How the backroom and administration works. Having read Ferguson's piece of badly written propaganda-style tripe, I would say that the truth probably lies somewhere in the middle. Sir Alex Ferguson's compelling story is always honest and revealing he reflects on his managerial career that embraced unprecedented European success for Aberdeen and 26 triumphant seasons with Manchester United. This hardback book has 296 pages and measures: 24 x 16 x 3cm. It is crucial for many people that every true with regards to Roy Keane. But Roy's book is something else.
It picks up more or less where the first part a dreadfully written tome incidentally concluded. Nonetheless, we may take pleasure in should you have just about any specifics of the item, and so are willing to offer the item. In following his personal struggle to reinvent himself, confronting a few demons along the way, The Second Half blends memoir and motivational writing in a manner which both disquiets and reassures in Roy Keane's original voice, in a stunning collaboration brilliantly captured with Man Booker Prize-winning writer Roddy Doyle. Jon is fine, absolutely fine. I'm left with the question: Was there really a need for this book in the first place? That will be a disappointment for him.
I simply have an opinion that Ferguson was forced to make a choice and he chose to take the side of his assistant Carlos Queiroz. Do I think Keane was badly treated? Today his philosophy lives on in teams across Europe, from Barcelona to Bayern Munich, and players from Lionel Messi to Cesc Fabrecas. Roddy Doyle's writing style is brilliant, a joy to read and you expect nothing less from a Booker winner. He had great, great players beside him. Cannot rate it high enough! The narrator was possibly one of the worst readers of an audiobook I have ever encountered. I was looking forward to reading this book.
I wasn't expecting to enjoy this but, as a fan of Keane-the-player, I decided to read it. But from playing pub football and earning £30 a week at Stocksbridge Park Steels while working in a factory, his impressive performances and hard work saw him rise again.

It's a book full of sincere reflections, self-critiques, regrets, lessons and happy memories. Aggressive and highly competitive, his attitude helped him to excel as captain of Manchester United from 1997 until his departure in 2005. I am neutral on it.
O'Neill defends 'brilliant' Keane O'Neill denied suggestions that former Republic and Manchester United midfielder Keane has become a liability within the Republic management team. We see a man with a desperate fear of failure; a man who is too afraid to enjoy things when they are going well because he is sure he will mess things up somehow. Aggressive and highly competitive, his attitude helped him to excel as captain of Manchester United from 1997 until his departure in 2005. Again, if one compares to Ferguson's effort, the benefits of having a ghost-writer who can actually string a sentence together, rather than a journalist seeking headlines and sound bites is patently obvious. From the middle to the end it was up and down. We have all the examine, and if all the info tend to be real, we'll post on our web site. Written by leading Premier League lawyer Daniel Geey, who has dealt with all these incidents first hand, this highly accessible book explores the issues - from pitch to boardroom - that shape the modern game and how these impact leagues, clubs, players and fans.
Here's where my bias comes in: I think Keane had to be moved on and Ferguson took a course of action that took no account of Keane's long-time service to United, and shoved him out the door as quickly as he could. Since retiring as a player, Keane has managed Sunderland and Ipswich and has become a highly respected television pundit. How did he succeed in coming to terms with life as a former Manchester United and Ireland leader and champion, reinventing himself as a manager and then a broadcaster, and cope with the psychological struggles this entailed? I usually don't enjoy football books though I'm a huge football fan because they are full of recollections of how games went, with not too much substance in them. I didn't care for this and felt it was not needed in such detail. For balance, we also see how scathing Keane can be for those whom he thinks do not try, or for those with whom he does not get along or with whom he has disagreed. Some succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. Roy is up for it, and the point you make is valid.
It's rich in details, filled with humorous, highly interesting anecdotes. Before financial circumstances dictated otherwise, I was the very proud owner of a season ticket on the Stretford End in Old Trafford.

O'Neill confirmed in a press conference ahead of tonight's friendly against Poland that the clip had indeed been recorded by Ward, but disputed the detail of his account. Since joining the club in 2014, Mauricio Pochettino has transformed Tottenham from underachievers into genuine title contenders.
