Someone At Google Doesn’t Like Roy Keane

Former Manchester United star and Sunderland manager Roy Keane is a noted dog lover.  The tempestuous midfielder once stated that he trusted his dog Triggs more than his teammates.  He has been in the news recently with his departure from Sunderland, and, apparently, he has angered a prankster at Google.

A Google search for “Roy Keane Walks Dog” brings up the result Did you mean: roy keane wanks dog

Roy Keane Resigns As Sunderland Manager

roykeaneRoy Keane resigned from Sunderland this morning, after two years managing the club.  According to reports he alerted the club by text message.

“I would like to thank my staff, players, Niall Quinn and in particular the fans for their support during my time at Sunderland,” Keane told reporters. “I would like to wish the club every success in the future.”

Chairman Niall Quinn thought the tension finally affected the 37-year-old, as evidenced by his increasingly haggard visage.

“I tried for two years to keep as much pressure off him as possible, but obviously the Premier League is the Premier League and I guess it came to the point where Roy thought he had reached the end of that journey,” Quinn said. “Reluctantly, I accepted that. It was not the easiest thing to do, but I think it was the best thing to do in the circumstances at that point.”

Keane inspired a sea change at Sunderland two seasons ago, earning the club promotion.  Sunderland finished 15th in the Premier League last season, but has stumbled this far, in the relegation zone after losing five of their last six.

Undoubtedly, Keane has talent as a manager.  Not many could do what he did with that talent level.  The questions were always how long he would hold up under the strain, how far he could take Sunderland and how long his message would last.  Today, we found out.

It’s unclear how Sunderland will fair, as the gap between Europe and Relegation is just seven points.  If Quinn can acquire a decent manager, they have the talent to stay up, provided there’s no exodus in January.
