Roy Keane Leaves Sunderland...was a dog responsible?
Now, if you're a Sunderland fan, you'll know that Roy Keane and the Black Cats have parted company. The Mistress's other half is gutted - more by Sunderland's recent poor performance, than Roy's reported exit.
The thing is, the company has spent many millions getting in new players. The Stadium of Light was looking like a destination for top-class players, rather than the graveyard slot.
But Kean-o could not deliver the magic. It was loss, after loss, after loss. Imagine the mood in our house!!
However, I have since learnt that Mr Keane got a new dog, alongside his already-famous Labrador, Triggs. Apparently, it's a German Shepherd.
Now, I am no pedigree-fascist, not at all. But when Keane was on top of his game - as a player AND manager, it was just him and Triggs. I just wonder if the new dog's arrival had anything to do with Sunderland's poor performance....
Personally, I know the answer. Get Triggs on the training pitch; he'll show those players what being a winner is all about.
