'A masterpiece ... thoughtful and self-mocking, insightful and funny' THE TIMES

'He's scarily extreme, dangerously provocative, oxy-acetylene forthright ... and hugely entertaining' SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY

'Searingly honest' THE SUN

'A thoroughly entertaining rampage' Matt Dickinson, THE TIMES BOOKS OF THE YEAR

No. 1 bestselling memoir of Roy Keane, former captain of Manchester United and Ireland - co-written with Man Booker Prize-winner Roddy Doyle.

In a stunning collaboration with Booker Prize-winning author Roddy Doyle, Roy Keane gives a brutally honest account of his last days as a player, the highs and lows of his managerial career, and his life as an outspoken ITV pundit.

'Roy Keane's book is a masterpiece . . . It may well be the finest, most incisive deconstruction of football management that the game has ever produced' Mail on Sunday

'A genuine pleasure . . . His thoughts on his players are humane, interesting, candid and never less than believable' The Times

'The best things are the small things: regretting joining Ipswich when he discovered the training kit was blue; refusing to sign Robbie Savage because his answerphone message was rubbish; being appalled that his side had listened to an Abba song before playing football' Evening Standard

'The book is brilliantly constructed, rattling along at breakneck speed . . . full of self-deprecation . . . a ruthless self-examination' Daily Telegraph

I have always been a hugh Roy Keane fan. I loved the way he played and his attitude.
I read his first book in two sittings. His second, I'm afraid is a different story. I find it boring with little "New" knowledge. Even if Roy goes on to manage teams bigger than, say "Ipswich", leave writing another book. Who cares about you having the groundsman having his lunch in the staff canteen as apposed to a shed. "Get over it".
