UF Quick Throw: Keane to Ipswich

Roy Keane will indeed take over at Ipswich. The former United player took Sunderland from the bottom of the Championship to the Prem in one season. Kept him there the next, then quit halfway through this season. Ipswich are probably expecting something similar, but maybe planning on avoiding being left at the altar, as they gave him a two year deal. The club fired manager Jim Magilton by phone Wednesday after he failed to earn a spot in the promotion playoffs.

Scum bags. Sacking a guy over the phone after he's been there 10 years!!! Keane is very un-likeable so I am happy its him. Besides, his name fits into a song Norwich have not been able to sing since they had George Burley in charge.

They say they havent given him a time frame for success but the 2 year deal suggests otherwise.
