Bring us his head... on a styrofoam plate
Yes Dagleish inherited the best team ever in the 1st Division (now prem)to manage. Souness is a waster (Nuff said) and keegan got found out when he got in to the premiership(Newcastle).Keane has a long way to go with sunderland but he will do it me thinks. Leitrim abu....
Sorry robson is only in his prime as a manager but he will be a good manager in time.
They said he was in mould?
All three were great players in their era. Souness and Robson were the typeof midfielder that David Beckham only dreamed of becoming.Kenny Dalglish was one of the finest finishers of the game, winning thetitle "King of the Kop"!! Lots of competition there!Roy Keane! Well, it's debatable if there has ever been a more competitivecaptain to play in Europe!As for Mr. Gray's comment, the only man to succeed as a manager from theabove, was Dalglish. He did, however, take over a team built by Paisley andthen Fagan, but he also made great signings in Peter Beardsley, John Barnesand John Aldridge, to name just three.Souness took over in 91, and put Liverpool back fifteen years, in myopinion. His most recent run in top flight football, saw Newcastle brushingwith relegation, only for Glenn Roeder to take over and steer the team toalmost an UEFA Cup place!Brian Robson spent a fortune at Middlesbrough, but couldn't get the respectof his players. His keeping of West Brom in the Premiership in May 05 was amiracle, but the inevitable took place a year later.The point is, not all great players make great managers. (Look at Larry Birdin basketball!!)Another example is a former teammate of Andy Gray- Peter Reid.The only big name in the world of football is Franz Beckenbauer, but hisWorld Cup victory as a coach in 1990, was arguably the most dreadfullyboring World Cup in history!!Now! Let's talk a wee bit about great managers.Matt Busby was an average player, who was once a winger for Liverpool! Yet,he built not one, but TWO tremendous teams at Mancheter United, and won aEuropean Cup in 1968.Bill Shankly played at Preston North End, and was in the shadow of the greatTom Finney. Finney is regarded as one of the greatest English players inhistory, yet he never managed any team, to my knowledge. Shankly- well, hisstatue stands outside the Kop!Bob Paisley was listed as a winger in the program for the 1950 FA Cup finalat Wembley, yet he never played, as the manager changed his line-up at thelast minute.Paisley's recored as Liverpool manager?? In nine seasons, he won sixchampionships, three European Cups, an EUFA Cup, and three consecutiveLeague Cups!!I'm not sure what Andy Gray is trying to say, but, if Roy Keane becomes asuccessful manager at the highest level, he will be one of a very few men,who were totally dominant as a player, AND, became a successfull manager.
I agree Garrett, a great player rarely makes a good manager. But I honestly believe that Gray regards the three men he mentioned as great managers.
Who is this Roy Keane anyway?
To be honest, I don't actually know.
It's very simple.The World Accoring to Sky Sports:Everyone's fantastic in everyway.
