As regular readers of other morning sports pages are well aware, today's papers are dominated by a certain Roy Keane. So it stands to reason that Vincent Browne's paper review was last night dominated by Keane too.
Gavan Reilly and Yvonne Judge discussed the contents of the Irish assistant manager's second book but it was something which Browne himself said that left the most lasting impression. Browne said 'It's great that he has a professional writer to write it this time,' obviously referring to the fact that Roddy Doyle has ghost written this one as opposed to Eamon Dunphy, who wrote Keane's first autobiography over a decade ago.
Now Browne's point could be taken one of three ways; a) he could be belittling Eamon Dunphy's writing ability, b) his jibe could be tongue-in-cheek and taken as a joke or c) he could have been making a genuine – albeit badly worded – point about the fact someone outside of the football spectrum has written the book.
Whatever you think of Dunphy it's definitely unfair not to put in him in the bracket of a 'professional writer.'
