SP22S1 Pic1 Now that we are deep into the post Trapattoni era the debate about who will  succeed the elderly Italian rages on. Martin O’Neill, Mick McCarthy, Chris  Hughton and what ever you are having yourself have been talked about, written  about and suggested by all and sundry.
Another name which has been thrown into the mix is that of Roy Keane. The  people who have included his name in the list of runners and riders obviously  don’t support Sunderland or the club I have supported since Adam was a very  young boy, Ipswich Town.
Back in March of this year a national newspaper in England opined that Keane had  become of age as a TV pundit.
Perhaps it is just as well he has because many of the players who played with him at those clubs have bemoaned his horrendous managerial flaws.
Jordan Rhodes was an exciting young striker at Ipswich during season 2007-2008. The good folk of Suffolk knew they had a rare talent on the books of their local club but Keane thought differently.
He sold Rhodes to Huddersfield Town much to the disbelief of Ipswich Town supporters. The club received a measly amount of money for the player (£350,000) which was nothing more than an insult to the club and indeed the player himself.
Four years and over 130 goals later, Jordan Rhodes has been sold on to Blackburn Rovers for £8million and has become a regular international goalscorer with Scotland.
He is one of the most sought after strikers in the British game and to this day he has no idea why Keane allowed him move on from Portman Road.
