I met him once and he was an up his own hole grumpy bollix...I would still let him shag my missus though for all he has given us.
 
KEANO!!! ClapClapClap


Is there a law or rule that says he has to stop and chat with everyone he meets when he is not doing his job?

 
No? It's not like I went to his gaff...it was a players/fans meet and greet after the Norn Iron game in the Carling Nations Cup and he was standing in the corner with a security guard between him and the great unwashed


Fair enough, if it was a meet-and-greet and he was acting like that, then that is a pain.
 
I think he was in a huff because he had been subbed after scoring 2 goals and wanted a hattrick :-) I don't hold it against him...it is unfortunately just the one experience I had of meeting him. By all accounts he is a top fella and and worthy of my worship
just clear it!.....just CLEAR it!!.....JUST CLEAR IT!!!! AH JAYSIS!!!!!!!!

Met him in Korea after the Spain game. He was a little standoffish compared to the likes of Quinn or Kelly but he was happy to pose for photos and have a quick word. That's more than enough in my view, players don't have to act like everyone's best mate. People are entitled to be in bad form from time to time as well.

Cracking player but never really warmed to his character. Always gave me the impression he was completely up himself. 
His Instagram the last few days more or less confirmed that. Found it very odd the way he posted messages from fellow players but literally just posted them in a way to almost give off the impression he was bragging at the calibre of players who were sending him messages.

I would imagine it is quite difficult meeting fans immediately after playing a game for your country. I'm not even sure about interviews after a match!

As for his social media presence, does he do it himself? I believe a lot of top footballers pay agencies to look after their social media presence.
I'm me and nobody else; and whatever people think I am or say I am, that's what I'm not, because they don't know a bloody thing about me.

This is almost certainly the case

Always turned up for us. Scored a ridiculous amount of goals for us. Personally find all this stuff about his personality largely redundant due to these two facts.

It’s 2018. If someone puts a post on Instagram saying they hate black people, would people still not be able to judge them as a racist just because it was an Instagram post?

Lads, social media isn't real, particularly when it comes to people in the public eye.

His instagram over the last few days has proved he's up himself. It's like something a 15 years old would say.

His epilogue of a statement proved that long before he went on his Instagram ego trip

Tough crowd here. Our record goalscorer with 68 (the nearest has 21) but some lads aren’t sure about him because he’s not well spoken or didn’t wank them off when they met him
once when he was out and about trying to mind his own business.

I couldn’t give a fook if Parrot/Idah/ Connolly are fascist scumbags who taunts homeless people by waving €100 notes at them out their limo windows on the proviso that one of them scores 50+ goals for us over the next 10-15 years. Robbie is a legend end of

I know someone who does work for professional footballers and he told me they all have life managers who do and organize everything for them that us mere mortals have to do ourselves. It's not that surprising really . James McClean should sack his.

I think that McClean should probably hire one, I get the feeling he enjoys it too much himself. He is different to your average footballer, which is why he is one of the few modern players that produces such strong emotion.
I am surprised that fans don't realise that players can't be bothered with this type of thing.
I'm me and nobody else; and whatever people think I am or say I am, that's what I'm not, because they don't know a bloody thing about me.

another point- people trying to compare the roy keane/ robbie positions within the setup is not alike at all to me.

we already know well MON was very old school, minimal communication on training ground etc. roy was his assistant manager and thus had to do a lot of that stuff. clearly it didnt work i.e. arter situation

mick isnt like that. further, terry connor is the assistant, keane is just a coach. also, crucially, robbie is someone seen as generally well liked, whereas roy was obviously someone who could be very divisive and confrontational.
