Sunderland Message Board
There you go... You've appointed Roy Keane.
Quinn promised you a "World Class Manager".
What you've ended up with is a World Class Knuckle Dragging Thug, with zero managerial experience.
It wouldn't suprise me if Keane was something like Quinn's fourth or fifth (or sixth) choice for the job. It's very unlikely that Alan Curbishley wasn't offered the position. However, being a man of intellegence, Curbs turned you down.
Keane is a totally different proposition.
Apparently, he's said he wants to sign players that remind him of himself...
So I suppose Sunderland scouts are being despatched to every prison, borstal, and remand centre in the country - even as we speak.
Anyway, good luck for next season's League 1 campaign.
This be true...................
and ive joined in this thread cos i thought id see what the real fans are saying, its actually quite eciting for a Champioship side to be having such a contrast of events.
I used to tune in to NUFC thread now and again, but its the same old #$%$ and really boring now.
Some of the geezers on there are ok and talk footy, but this numpty just wants to hear himself.
No-one wants to go to Newcastle, thats for sure.
Keane's done ok so far, in what 2 days, i'll be looking for Sunderlands results this season thats for sure..
Puce - Moose, Obviously ran out of #$%$ to spout you have been shot down in flames coz like all skunks, the top and bottom of it is that you are so vain you are #$%$ting yourself in case SAFC do better than NUFC, constantly looking over your shoulders!
ADVICE - Worry about your own team you sad #$%$
WAIT WAIT. Newcastle have made a big signing, Rossi for 4 month, and a total #$%$ of themselves over the Milner affair.
Poor kid, obviously not wanted but they pulled the plug on his transfer to Villa.
Typical pathetic Newcastle
Listen, stupid would you have considered Glen Roader or Gareth Southgate your first choice managers out of the bunch I think we got the best deal. At least he will attract attention and players, were they even close to him as players so why not as managers.

LOOK, STUPID, Roeder and Southgate already have jobs, and what manager in his right mind would leave either Newcastle or 'Boro to join Sunderland at the present time?
You think you got the best deal from the managers that were available, do you? I don't. Alan Curbishley is available, for Christ's sake.
Here's what happened...
Naill Quinn takes over as Chairman. He ries to bring in a good manager, probably approaches Alan Curbishley. Alas, no managers want to join Sunderland (because they are so #$%$), so with nobody in charge by the start of the season, Quinn, in a money saving excercise, appoints himself.
Sunderland lose thier opening 3 games, and are rooted to the bottom of the Championship. They go out of the League Cup, beaten by Bury (who, at the time, were bottom of the Football League.)
Quinn realises that he can't coach for toffee, and because no proven managers are willing to join his club, he panicks, and appoints Roy Keane simply because of his name.
Great basis to appoint a manager on.
Keep the comedy coming. Us Mags are having a right laugh.
