    I'm disgusted Martin Cullen has made no public comment on behalf of the government yet.

    I realise times are tough, but can we have our overseas aid budget diverted to Ipswich's transfer fund?

    In Ciaran's humble opinion.....

    I know I shouldn't respond to a WUM but.....

    Keane was certainly one of the best players to come out of Ireland but I would still think there is a serious debate to be had whether he is "our greatest" - Giles, Brady and McGrath are all up there for me. They may not have won as many honours in England but in terms of contribution to the International team I think they all have just as strong a case.

    Courtesy of Wikipedia (it's quicker than typing it myself):

    "A recent nickname for Ipswich Town is "The Tractor Boys", which was coined during the club's brief successful period in the Premiership (200001) when the team regularly competed against more fashionable clubs. The nickname is an example of self-deprecating humour referring to Ipswich's agricultural heritage."

    Interesting move. Not sure it's the right one but it's an interesting one. I hope he does well. The more Irish managers we have the better. let's move on from Keane the player and focus on him as a manager. Hopefully he'll promote some young Irish players.
    There is no such thing as a miracle cure, a free lunch or a humble opinion.

    Good luck to him but I hope he gets a proper scouting network in place from the off for his own sake/sanity.

    How sad are you?

    He'll be fine at Ipswich. As long the board let him spend millions on players that he knows are any good 'just to get the numbers in'. Doesn't show up to training until Thursday before the game. The chairman and owner don't question his ability to be manager when his team is thumped at home 1-4 to a side you should be beaten at home and are second bottom of the league after spending 45million of his money. Oh, and the fans don't boo him for the team playing terrible against Northampton Town in the League Cup.

    Brilliant.

    I'll probably be slated for this but I'd love to see Keane as Ireland manager someday, with this level of buzz and box-office about the team. We're getting a decent taste of it now with Trap I suppose, but you wouldn't have Keane aiming for second place in any group, that's for sure.

    Things looking up for Ipswich.

    Billionaire owner - check.

    Chequebook manager - check.

    Bump for local toursit industry as a selection of brain dead 'fans' suddenly decide that they never really liked Sunderland and Ipswich is actually where their support lies - can't be far away.....

    That is correct. Hopefully the old adage about never meeting your heroes doesn't hold true here.

    But Roy is the greatest and wherever roy goes I go. Come on Ryanair please sort out a Dublin to Ipswish route. Build an airport if you have to please.
    In Trap we trust

    I'd prefer to see if he's actually capable of managing at the highest level first personally, jury's still very much out on that count at present. Box office doesn't mean sh1t unless you're qualifying for tournaments.

    And Trap is way bigger box office in management terms then Keane ever will be if you leave Sky Sports and the sycophantic elements of the Irish media out of it.

    So let me get this straight. Your a Bohs fan like myself. Well done on that. And I'm guessing your Irish too?

    So if Keane takes over at Rovers you'll turn to the darkside just for your beloved Roy?

    What happens if the EFA offer him the English job one and he takes it. Will you be wearing the Three Lions on your chest and making trips Wembley?
