A publishing phenomenon in hardback, Roy Keane's autobiography was the biggest selling sports book of the year. The book will include a new chapter covering events that followed the books publication: Keane's vindication by the FAI report; the punishment meted out by the FA and Mick McCarthy's resignation. Brilliantly reviewed, Roy Keane's riveting, brutally honest autobiography has the potential to be one of the year's biggest paperback bestsellers.

The most talked about, written about and argued over sports autobiography of 2002, Keane: the Autobiography does not disappoint. This story of Manchester United and Ireland captain Roy Keane's brilliant and controversial career, written in collaboration with Irish journalist and former professional footballer Eamon Dunphy, crackles with score-settling vigour.

It presents a revisionist view of a life in football that has had tabloid editors rubbing their hands with glee almost from the moment the fiery, confrontational midfielder made his British debut for Nottingham Forest under arch eccentric Brian Clough right through to his sensational bust-up with international boss Mick McCarthy and subsequent departure from the 2002 Irish World Cup squad on the eve of the finals.

Amid all the wrangling and point-scoring Dunphy and Keane have written a rags-to-riches review of Keane's journey from a poor, battling background in Cork to the £50k a week highlife at Old Trafford. It's very entertaining, although an independent biographer would doubtless have put a less heroic spin on proceedings.

The two key headline-grabbing stories--the war with McCarthy and the allegedly deliberate injuring of Alfie Haaland--read somewhat differently in the book from the way they did in the papers. Make no mistake about it, Keane is frank about his own failings, franker about the failings of others and prepared to spill the beans to some extent about being the odd-man-out in the Old Trafford glam-fest. But this is very much his side of the story. --Alex Hankin -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.


From a Cork childhood to the World Cup finals, the story of football's toughest competitor. Love him or hate him, Roy Keane is the inspiration behind Manchester United FC's success over the past nine years. A relentless, aggressive midfield general, Keane has epitomized United's winning approach on the field - at times bringing him into trouble with referees, other managers and, of course, the Football Association. He's also been in trouble off the pitch as well, and it's good to see that these incidents have not been omitted. This book is bound to sell in huge quantities in the red half of Manchester, as well as the whole of Dublin, but United's national - and international - appeal to millions will ensure bumper sales figures for Penguin. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A glittering career on and off the pitch 13. Februar 2003
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Since his debut in 1991, Roy Keane has been one of the most valuable player for the Irish team. Eleven games in a row with Keane as their captain, and the Irish haven't lost a single game. But when he missed the decisive play-off against Iran, they lost. Keane also missed the world championship in Korea and Japan, as he was sent home by manager Mick McCarthy (Keane: "Let him rot in hell") just days before the opening game. This is only typical for the 31 years old, who demanded top performance from everybody, including himself, but never dodged any necessary dispute. Nevertheless, he sort of became an idol for his fans, as he always preferred the honest, hard-working style on the ground. He, too, never forgot, where his roots were, namely in the working class suburbs of Cork. But there is another, dark side of Roy Keane as well. Alcohol and affray led to bad press outside the stadion, on the pitch he committed several crude fouls and was sent off no less than eleven times. During the 2001 derby against Manchester City, for example: Keane fouled Alf Inge Haaland so rudely, that the Norwegian became a disabled person who will never be able to play football again. But what is worse, in his biography Keane admits that he deliberately fouled Haaland minutes before the end of the game. As I said, Keane has never neglected his side of the story, not even his darkest sides. Being from Munich I will never forget May 26, 1999, when ManU won the Champions League. This day, Keane was the enemy. Today, I have to admit, this is quite a readable biography with lots of inside stories on his life on and off the pitch.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good Book but needs MORE..... 19. März 2005
Von A. S. Black - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I enjoyed the insight from an obviously first hand perspective into the greatest club team in the world and the Irish national side. I would of liked more anecdotes from Keane about his relationships with other players -- teammates as well as adversaries. To the casual football fan this is a good read, but I expected more from Keane.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Direct, like Keano plays! 23. August 2005
Von ROBERT KINGSLEY - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is a candid look inside Roy Keane's thoughts. He freely shares what he thinks about the game, opposing players, teamates, and many other subjects.

Keane has been criticized for writing this book because he is blunt in his assesments of people and situations. However, this is the strength of the book, because if Keane had watered it down to be "PC," then the reader wouldn't hear what Keane really thinks.

Nobody will agree with all of Keane's thoughts, that is a given, but it is interesting to see his development as a player and person. This book provides the football fan with a glimpse into the mind of a superstar, and whether you like Roy Keane or not, it is a very good read that is enjoyable and insightful.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Tell it Like it Is, But Tell More !! 9. Mai 2006
Von Paul A. Kirwan - Veröffentlicht auf
I like Roy Keane..He is direct,explosive and successful without possessing the sublime skills of Best or Cantona. The book is written in the same direct style as his playing. He tells it straight but is lacking in detail. You get a glimpse of the man without really ever getting inside his head. He shares the highs and lows (and even his first salary with Man. Utd.)...but lacks the capacity to captivate the reader like a good biography should. Most of what is in here, you already know...Interesting glimpses of life as a successful sportsperson but lacking the cutting edge that he delivers on the football pitch...
4.0 von 5 Sternen Honest , Direct but a bit one-dimensional 9. Februar 2008
Von Mark Gibbs - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I'll come clean. I'm a Leeds United fan, so my natural instinct was to burn this book. I didn't. I read it, and enjoyed it. You feel you are listening to a straight shooter. It's a much better read than some of the tosh put out by ex-Leeds players. Sure, he has a persecution complex, but he's Irish. It comes with the territory. Since Keane fell out with Sir Alex and left Man United he's risen in stature. And if Leeds can hire Denis Wise, then they can certainly hire Roy Keane.....after he walks out on Sunderland in a couple of years..
