    1 thought on “Keane:The Autobiography: First Edition”

    1. I thoroughly enjoyed this enthralling, frank and hilarious book. Readers not familiar with British colloquialisms and English football culture may find this story difficult to follow. But readers interested in what constitutes the heart of a champion will find Keane The Autobiography both rewarding and indispensable.Here is the story of a poor Irish footballer from Cork who was too small, too slow and so utterly lacking in fundamental skills that by age 18 he was relegated to a ‘has been’ in [...]

    2. Why did I decide to read this book?I decided to read this book because on the bingo board I needed to read a dairy, autobiography or biography because of this I wanted to read this book because Roy played soccer and I really enjoy this sport. Aswell as he played for Manchester United which is the team I support in the English Premier Leauge.Which category on the bingo board this book completes?The category that this book completes is dairy, autobiography or biography. I found this book interesti [...]

    3. Another book that came at me from a car boot sale. For me, it promised lots of inside info into the world of modern professional football. The enigmatic Mr Clough at Nottingham. The Ferguson regime at Old Trafford along with some juicy details of the famous dressing room hairdryer. Alsothat World Cup upset between R.K. and Mick McCarthy.Sure enough, this autobiography recounts Keane's career through the 1990's and published in 2002tells of his World Cup walkout from the Republic of Ireland squad [...]

    4. Its not bad, but the arrogance is over the top, its what you take away from the book and why its 2 star not 3 Yep, he has a right to be arrogant, one of the best footballers of all time but the remarks about Sheringham, Schmeichel and even Cantona feels like petulant whining. As with many modern footballers books, it lacks event, you feel they don't really have a life outside football to live!!! Want to read a footballers book? Try Paul McGrath - Back from the Brink Great read.

    5. I found this is an above average book. It is a very motivational book because of the type of person Keane is. The book is also very good because it tells events honestly even if it makes the author look bad. However, you do have to enjoy the game of soccer considering the book is about a former soccer player and the events of his life as a soccer player. I would rate the book four out of five because it is very inspirational, honest, but it is written for a special audience.

    6. I've always been a fan of Keane. His intensity and desire to 'win' is evident throughout the book - something I've always admired. The book focuses heavily on his playing career and he only allows us an occasional glimpse into his home life. With that in mind, it may be one to avoid unless you're a big fan of the game!

    7. A very good read - we're given alot of information about the young life of Roy Keane that established him as the footballing superstar he became. Roy is a no-nonsense type of guy on and off the pitch. He stands up for what he believes and has the ability to tell it like it is, so for me this book was refreshing. We get some great insights behind the scenes at Man United and International duty, including Roy's side of the 2002 Saipan fiasco.Like Roy, I'm the type of person who suffers with a shor [...]

    8. I must admit that Roy Keane is a hero of mine so I was really looking forward to reading this book. I wasn't disappointed as Roy took me on a "warts and all" journey through his childhood, his personal life and his controversial footballing career. Not at all sycophantic as many of these sports bios can be, instead this is just like Keano was on the field. What you see is what you get.

    9. Like the story of the plane journeys with Irish FA being in first class and the rest of the players in economy. Its like a modern day George Orwell saga, and also the bit where dear Roy tried to operate on Alf Inge Harlaand's knees during a match at old Trafford with his studs and without anaesthetic.

    10. A far more simplistic writing style than Sir Alex Ferguson's book, but a good, well written book nonetheless. Keane's honesty gets to the point of almost being uncomfortable at times, but that's what makes it so good. He's not afraid to tell his story the way it is and not afraid of portraying himself in a bad light, which takes guts.

    11. A really well written book which honestly recounts Kean's life in football. I am not a fan of either Manchester United or Roy Kean, however have a strong respect for him having read the book. I'm sure there was a ghost writer involved, however you do feel that it is Roy's story in his own words. I especially liked the fact that whilst he explained he never tried to excuse, refreshingly honest!

    12. A very good read into the mind of a complicated but brilliant footballer. Being a perfectionist often got in the way of his personal relationships but it made him one of the greatest ever Manchester United players.

    13. Interesting & well worth 99p at the charity shop! Mostly it's interesting how much he was drinking and eating kebabs well into the 90s. I had assumed the Wenger revolution of special diets and no alcohol had come into play much earlier than it clearly did.

    14. A great player & always interesting as to what he has to say for himself, particularly after the world cup saipan fiasco. Pulls no punches when criticising players, mangers or media pundits Good read & another must read for all soccer lovers.

    15. Hate Manchester Unites & hate parts of Keane's personality, and things he did in his career, but he is a footballing great, in my opinion a genius; reading his autobiography was a pleasure and I was gripped!

    16. Really enjoyable read - interesting to see many of these popular events from Roy's perspectives. Nice, easy reading. This is how sporting autobiographies should be written!

    17. Brutal honesty from keano and recognising his own faults (temper) make this book an interesting and riveting read much enjoyed!

    18. I read this book on recommendation from football head Gary in Brisbane before I even knew who Roy was. It got me interested in football. Got me really interested in Roy! He rocks!

    19. I would like to harken back to my happy childhood but all I seem to remember is that winter was colder and lasted forever.

    20. 90% football talk, 10% personal stuff. Not a ground-breaking literary achievement, but it is just the thing I expected and wanted from a football biography.

    21. An amazingly honest piece by a player renowned for his straight-forward manner on and off the pitch

    22. Great book. Reveals why he is the way he is and also that he is prepared to stand by his beliefs in the face of anything and anyone. A legend.
