Credit crisis diary: Even Keano can't get people to Ipswich

It's a snub for the Tractor Boys – as Ipswich Town's football stars are known – from Ryanair. Sources at the airline say that when Roy Keane managed Sunderland, the airline used to put on extra flights from Ireland to the North-east so that his compatriots could follow the team. Now Keane has been appointed at Ipswich, Ryanair has apparently decided additional services can't be justified to East Anglia.

Keane comes under attack

Roy Keane's former Manchester United team-mates have hit back at the new Ipswich manager's claims that they have achieved nothing. "Can he manage a top club like United, Arsenal or Chelsea in the future?" Wigan's Steve Bruce said. "I think we'll have to see in 10 years because he's only done it for two years."

If you were an Ipswich Town supporter would you be agog to know much more about the stealthy owner Marcus Evans? Wouldn't the reassuring crinkle of his money do?

James Lawton: His greatest obsession will always be himself

Almost everyone defers to Roy Keane, even the bookmakers who yesterday installed Ipswich Town as favourites to win the Championship as a reflex reaction to his appointment. It's a habit of mind, untouched apparently by his shameful exit from Sunderland when the going got tough, and is hardly surprising when you consider the meaning of all his years at Old Trafford and his initial impact at the Stadium of Light.

Championship Round Up: Jerome lifts Blues but Royals falter

Birmingham City tightened their grip on the Championship's second automatic promotion place with a gritty 2-0 win at Doncaster Rovers. Cameron Jerome, jostling with two Rovers defenders as a high cross dropped to them, looped in a 19th-minute header for the Blues first goal, and three minutes before the interval Hameur Bouazza pounced on a poor back pass to steer in the second and open up a seven-point gap on third-placed Reading, who lost 1-0 at home to Ipswich Town.

Championship round-up: Blues hit by Dann buster as Wolves enjoy their rest day

Championship leaders Wolves, who do not kick-off against Cardiff City until 1pm today, were the biggest winners yesterday, their two closest rivals, Birmingham City and Reading, both spurning the chance to close the gap. After just 52 seconds at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry City’s Scott Dann fired in from Daniel Fox’s corner and Alex McLeish’s Blues could muster neither the guile nor the graft to get back into the match. Scott Sinclair had an equaliser ruled out, but McLeish did not blame the officials.
