Poll: Do you agree with Roy Keane's comments after Ireland's defeat to Spain?
Ten years on, Roy Keane looks like dividing Irish people again in the wake of the 4-0 Euro 2012 defeat to Spain on Thursday night. Do you agree with him?
Keano, who was speaking as part of the ITV analysis, had this to say on the Irish mentality:
"I think the players and even the supporters, they all have to change their mentality, it’s just nonsense from players speaking after the games about how great the supporters are.
"Listen, the supporters want to see the team doing a lot better and not giving daft goals away like that. They want to see the team winning – let’s not kid ourselves, we’re a small country, we’re up against it, but let's not just go along for the sing-song every now and again.”
And also, on the Irish players:
"It's a reality check for a lot of the Irish players. I think a lot of them think they're top players, and it goes to show that they're so far behind a lot of these players.
"I’m not too happy with all that nonsense, to praise the supporters for sake of it ... Let’s change that attitude towards Irish supporters."
So what do you think? Are you on Keano's side this time? Or are is expectations just way too high?
