Keane as a go at Hutch

Keane as a go at Hutch

Roy Keane is reported in several media outlets having a go at Latics boss Chris Hutchings over the Leighton Baines bids.

The Evening Standard are just one who report that Keane said 'I think one or two clubs have tried to use Sunderland"


He goes on to say that he is disappointed in Chris Hutchings for going on Sky and saying, if I`ve got the translation right, 'he was saying this and that about us`

I think what Hutch was saying Roy is that Bainesy is not for sale so stop making bids and trying to unsettle him

Keane also says Hutch has been going into other peoples business and he can see how managers 'fall out`.

I bet Hutch is absolutely bricking it.

Delusions of grandeur is a phrase that comes to mind especially with Sunderland`s new signing Kieran Richardson talking of Champions League qualification

Now Sunderland are biding £9 million for Hearts keeper Craig Gordon!

I don`t concern myself, usually, with the goings on at other clubs, but with this attack on the Latics it as sparked my interest in the North East`s third club

They have made some real quality signings so far this close season, yeah right, Kieran Richardson, Michael Chopra, Russell Anderson and Greg Halford, that is real Champions League material

At this rate Sunderland will struggle, again, and all Keene`s bleating will do is highlight his inexperience as a manager.

Good luck this season Roy, you`re going to need it

Just having a look at your site regarding Harewood and saw this article. I totally agree with you on this one. Keane is following the Fergie mentality of talking about players who are at other clubs in an attempt to unsettle them. Fergie has done this for years and now Keane is doing the same. I have got to be honest with you I would love Leighton Baines at the 'biggest club in the Midlands' but I am glad MON doesn't try and unsettle players and only discusses them when we have agreed a fee with the selling club. Good luck foe the new season.

Latics v Brighton - Big Game Preview

Latics are back at the DW Stadium this afternoon following a very creditable draw on Tuesday away at Leeds, the game extending our unbeaten run to four, which must give us something of a platform to build on as the season is starting to take shape.

Brighton are flying high at the moment, currently 3rd in the Championship with just one away defeat, Newcastle at St James's Park and they have players, especially in attack, of exceptional quality at this level.
