    6 straight defeats for Ipswich..... surely Keane will have to walk away (what he does best really) yet again as I cannot see him waiting to get sacked.... but with his managerial record who will ever hire him?

      Yeah i agree with this...Just because he was a great player doesn't mean he is automatically a great manager.They are two different professions.He needs to do something fast.

    Probably because he makes the players too scared of him to bond with them, I would say he probably lacks man management skills

    I think he needs a coarse in anger management.

    He should go and ask Mick McCarthy for some advice on how to be a decent manager and decent bloke.

    Because a football manager should always seem like he's in control of the situation (even when he isn't) With Keane you always sense their is a public outburst just around the corner. It's a bit like Kevin Keegan when he totally lost the plot on national t.v after being baited by Alex Ferguson. Fergie must have been rubbing his hands when he saw the interview.

    I think Roy Keane has the potential to be an excellent manager. His record at Sunderland in his first season was exceptional taking them from the bottom of the Championship to winning the league.
    Its incredibly hard to identify exactly what the issue is when you go on a losing streak. Im an Aston Villa fan and although our recent record has been poor I don't pin that on the manager. Injuries, transition take over time and the age of our current first team have all contributed.
    I think Keane hit it big very early and the expectation is that he will do it time after time. Sometimes that just isn't the case. Could it be down to the players?

      I agree that the players also have to shoulder some responsibilty but the fact is Keane has signed a lot of these players since taking over at the club. For what it's worth i do believe he has the attributes to be a good manager, i just don't think he has enough control over his gob.

        I was a huge fan of Roy Keane as a player (still class him in the top 5 premier league players ever, very under rated) but since he joined Ipswich I haven't really kept up to date on his record.
        I seem to remember he had a terrible start to last season and (some what) turned it round. If hes lost the dressing room its quite rare that you get them back.

    He just doesn't have enough management experience and probably doesnt even have all his management badges (I don't know that though). All these managers that were players in the last 5-10 years think they can just jump into a premier league management position just because they were good players: Roy Keane, Tony Adams, Alan Shearer etc and none of them have really done well.

      On the other hand some might say Steve Bruce, Roberto Di Mateo and Paul Ince (ignore his record at Blackburn, at Milton Keynes Dons he did very well) to name only 3 have made the transition quite well.
