Roy’s Return

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The crowd let it be known
That Roy was welcome home
Chanting out his name
At intervals throughout the game

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But only one Keano?
Both he and Robbie should’ve scored
Oh, how the crowd would’ve roared

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Instead, it was Mattie Holland bagged the winner
A perfectly executed volley, not a shinner
Hence the much anticipated Return of Roy
Quietened the carpers, to Brian Kerr’s obvious joy


Ireland 1 Romania 0
a typical friendly – not too exciting
Ireland worth their win
some encouraging displays, notably Liam Miller and Andy Reid

And of course, the big news, the return (and full 90 minutes)
of Roy Keane to the Irish team
