Roy Keane For The Rumours To Kick On?

Roy Keane For The Rumours To Kick On?

Speculation surrounding Roy Keane and his possible appointment as assistant manager to Paul Lambert at Aston Villa continues apace at the moment.

Following the earlier announcements that we were apparently interested in him, and the suggestion that talks had already been had following his decision to rule himself out of the Celtic job, it's now being reported that he has quit his pundit role on ITV.

With suggestions that he ruled out Celtic because he wants to continue as assistant to former Villa manager Martin O'Neill with the Republic of Ireland, if this move turns out to be true it certainly fans the flames when it comes to him potentially joining us.

The Guardian carry quotes from an ITV source who has said.

'Roy has been a tremendous part of our pundit team in recent years, but we fully understand his decision to concentrate wholly on his coaching. We wish him every success for the future.'

Now his pundit role certainly didn't affect his international role, and the choice of words saying to 'concentrate' on coaching, has to imply really he's looking to get back into club life - the question is in what capacity and with who.

If he does come to Villa it would certainly give the players a training ground shock. I can picture them all vomiting into buckets after gruelling hateful sessions.

Can only see this being temporary until we're sold and PL's long term future is confirmed with New owners. I think he'll be a great for us - maybe he'll give Clarke a vote of confidence to improve and impress?

Yeah, as I've already said, it would only be temporary I'd imagine, until new buyers bring their own manager I and turf Lamberk out.

If this does happen he will be manager before the end of the season.

I am thrilled at the thought of Roy Keane pushing Villa for success. Like or loathe him, he has an absolute winning mentality and more grit than Tarmac. I really hope he joins the team.

We need a coach. This is important. I think Keane could potentially be a very good no. 2, but we need a proper coach to help develop the style of play; because stylistically, we are dreadful. People can shout from the rooftops about Lambert's lack of funds/wages but that does excuse the inexcusable - and the inability of our players to get even the most basic of things right, from controlling a ball to stringing passes together, from positioning to movement, is just that - undoubtedly, undeniably, absolutely inexcusable.

For crying out loud - that should have been "does NOT excuse the inexcusable" :)

Couple of thought! Firstly why would w go to the trouble of getting rid of two armature bullies to take on the number 1 bully? And secondly maybe just maybe, as with the sale to Learner, this is a condition made by new owner!!! Just a thought as I can't see why Keane would come with out any assurances he will still have a job at the start of the season!!
