You'll Never Walk Alone

The man who caused (ok, I'm displaying which side I was on there) the biggest nationwide split since the Civil War (assuming nothing crazy happened before the late 70s that I don't know about) has just completed one of the most publicised, one of the fastest and one of the most surprising divorces in sports history. Keano has been some player, but I could never worship him the way some do. By the way, just in case any egg-chasers have notions about their place in the grand scheme of things, they should see check what dominates tomorrow's front pages*.

'He's big, he's red, he put Keane's career to bed, Peter Crouch, Peter Crouch!...

(tee hee)

Football365 recalls some of the Corkonian's legendary rants.

Meanwhile reports from home tell me that the Examiner's sports editor stated on Sky Sports News that the 'a lot of people in Cork will want answers'. That's Cork people in a nutshell for you... that's the 'Irish' Examiner in a nutshell for you too, come to think of it.

Pity all this is overshadowing the closest League showdown since Dundalk won the title in 1995 and since Dundalk beat Cork in similar circumstances in Turner's Cross to win the title in 1991 and since Dundalk beat St. Pats (managed by one Brian Kerr) in Oriel Park to win the title in 1988. Memories...

*Yes, I know there's been yet another mass murder in Baghdad, and that should dominate the headlines, and I know that the Irish Times letter writers already have their typewriters out for anyone who dares lead with the Keane story, but who even pretends that the media organise their headlines in order of true importance anyway?
