Keane hits out at Ipswich fans for their criticism of certain players. "I've no problem with opinions. But a lot of them have no idea what they're talking about in terms of football. A lot of people are too set in their ways. Instead of moaning and groaning about systems and tactics they should get behind the players, particularly the younger boys."

NOVEMBER:

After further catcalls in the clash with Barnsley, Keane again has a go at fans. "There has to be a balance between what's right and what's wrong, and what happened last weekend was wrong, I don't care what anyone says. I don't care if you've been a supporter of this club for 50 years. They didn't support the team last week. How can they support the team by booing? The atmosphere was wrong. I think it might be a benefit the next week or two that we are away from home, where we don't have to listen to any nonsense."

JANUARY:

Following the 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest, Keane engages in a row with some supporters behind the dugout. After a poor run of results, the local newspaper steps up the campaign for the Corkman to be dismissed.
