'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Keano Signs Another United Player

Roy Keane does not abandon the transfer policy which worked to an extent at Sunderland: he keeps snapping up ex-United players and the products of our youth system. Now at Ipswich, he secured the services of 22-year-old Lee Martin who started the last league game of last season.

"It obviously wasn`t an easy decision, leaving a club like Manchester United, but I know how ambitious the manager is here and I`m delighted to be part of his plans for the future,' Martin said.

'It`s also important for me to be playing regular first-team football and hopefully I can play my part in helping Ipswich get back in the Premier League.'

Chris Eagles did just that and why couldn't Martin do it as well? He was never going to be good enough for United but he's got quality - and pace, lots of it - and could be a very useful player for Ipswich. Good luck!

All the best to Lee Martin. He was never going to make it at United, but has enough talent to do so elsewhere.

Didn't you used to have another Lee Martin like 10-15yrs ago, defender .. same time as Lee Sharp, Pallister etc etc. Never really made it either...
