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.

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.

Von brasho - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I was inspired to read this after watching the documentary 'Keane and Vieira: Best of Enemies'. I was amazed at his obvious hatred for Alex Ferguson, his manager through so many triumphs. I wanted to see if he'd always felt that way. Through the book he only has good things to say about Ferguson which was covering a decade from the early 90s through to 2002. When you watch the documentary this all seems to be forgotten. Incredible how one can wipe so many memories gained over a long period. I imagine this probably has to do with his eventual parting with Man U and perhaps a desire to work there in some capacity which has probably been blocked by Ferguson??
I really enjoyed the first half of the book and flew through it. Fairly repetitive about his love of a drink and frustrations with needing to supply tickets to family and friends and disdain with the set up he faced at international level with Ireland which in the end could well be contrived to justify what eventually transpired at the 2002 World Cup. Written in a pretty basic style but interesting nonetheless. It then just got darker and darker as he got older, sustained injuries and became embroiled in controversy eg. brooding desire to get square with Alfie Haaland which he eventually does with tragic consequences, fight with Mick McCarthy leading to walkout / sacking from the Irish national squad.
I was left just feeling sorry for him. Reading the book has markedly changed my view of him for the worse. Despite having recoiled at many of his actions on the field over the years, I was drawn to his honesty as this is a quality I admire and is rare in people in the public eye. I now just hope he can find a way to transform his life and learn to let go. He seems to hold on to so much. A bit of meditation could go a long way to help him learn to find some peace in this life.

HASH(0x92d8be70) von 5 Sternen Good Book but needs MORE..... 19. März 2005
Von A. S. Black - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
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.

Keane's book reads the way he played, fast, furious, uncompromising. His language paints the highs and lows with the same frank, matter-of-fact commitment he has to everything he says, does, and expects of others. The most fierce footballer in world has ever seen with the most hard-boiled autobiography around.

HASH(0x92d8e210) von 5 Sternen Direct, like Keano plays! 23. August 2005
Von ROBERT KINGSLEY - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
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.
