    Hi - my first post on here, but one cannot overstate the job that Roy Keane has done for my club. We were 2nd bottom after 5 games when he joined us and heading for league-1

    What a season, and under this man we will do the Premiership proud next season

    Hard luck to all the Derby supporters out there - I really do hope you get up through the play-offs

    Roy Keane in my opinion should be awarded the manager of year award for British Football, if such a title exists.

    It seems he can demand repsect, passion and commitment from his players in the same way he carried Manchester Uniteds team for 10 years.

    There's only one Keano.

    Keane is a remarkable human being. His desire to win is incredible.

    However one season managing a huge club in second rate football, it is dangerous to make too many conclusions.

    I agree its early days.

    Keane though was brought to Sunderland to try and stabalize them and avoid relegation.

    Any thoughts of promotion were not a realistic consideration when he took over.
    He has massively overperformed as a manager.

    You are right though, who knows what would happen if he became the new Bolton manager for example, its to soon and he needs too prove himself over the next 2 years.

    Anyone with half a football brain could've steered Sunderland back to the Premiership...

    I thought Keane was over-rated as a player, and can see from these early posts that he's already well on the way to being over-rated as a Manager.

    Let's see how he get on next season before anyone starts labelling him eh?

    Come on Sunderland, keano and Quinn have done great, they got rid of deadwood and built a team in the same mind set as Keano. Hopefully some buys during the close season will make us comfortable Premiership team next season, maybe even qualify for Champions league (or not)

    Cheers - but given the form we are in I doubt there's much chance of that!

    Keane's done a great job; you've been the best team in the Championship this year, and I think you'll be fine next season.

    Have faith lad!

    It's now, 2 years after I was all in favour of the playoffs, I believe the system to be a disgrace. I mean... 6th place can get promoted over 4th 5th and most importantly, 3rd? What sort of system is that? Top 3 should go up. Word.

    😠

    I agree. How often does the 3rd placed team go up through the playoffs?

    Sunderland didn't do it it 98, and 04

    We even lost to Palace in 04 when they finished 6th, but hey, they did us a great favour today ....

    I've got to hold my hands up and say I was wrong about Keane. I started a thread when he first became manager saying that he'd be totally useless - a screaming psycho in the mold of Graeme Souness. However it could be that the players are still in awe of having a player with recent achievements they admire being in charge (Souness' first job in charge of Rangers led to 4 league wins). Once Keane gets older and players just see him as a whinging old git they might not fight for him as much (I'm hoping 🙂).

    Keano was clearly inspired by the one and only Aidy Bothroyd 😉🙄

    True, next season will tell all. My bet is Sunderland finish top 4, no joke.
