Never leave football again* Never.
Selected quotes taken after the Coventry v Ipswich match - which ended in defeat for the Tractor Boys. :
“I’ll be down tonight but the day my appetite isn’t affected by defeat I’ll be out of the game. I am trying to learn from my experiences at Sunderland and not get too downhearted but I will not get home, put my feet up and have a whistle.
“But I’ve been like that since I was eight or nine years old. the beauty of it is that we have a game on Tuesday night so that can cheer me up.
“There will always be disappointments in football but I will be okay – don’t worry about me.
“This will put a dampener on my birthday for sure but Roy Keane’s birthday is not, and should not be, important in the grand scheme of things.”

* Of course you can leave Ipswich if you want, but don’t wait too long to come back again next time.

*** Bonus: Something originally posted over on Red Rants:
From the Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show podcast – this is something from those funsters Gift Grub which is sung by quote: “Roy Keane” about that boy Ronaldo. You know the one, just moved to that Spanish club…
Oh and have a Happy Birthday.
Update – The original song:
» The Kinks – Lola
Yet Another Update: More Keano quotable goodness.
“…I feel capable of running a top, top club. I want to manage teams who are challenging for trophies and playing in the Champions League.
“I need to be a little bit more patient with myself. You have to have a hell of a lot of experience to manage the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea.
“But I am confident that one day I will be manager of one of the big teams.”
No disrespect to his current club at all there…
