ROY Keane admitted that tonight’s Ipswich Town PLC AGM could be has last, as Town boss.
However, Keane embraced all the questions that were asked of him from shareholders, and in fact enjoyed a relatively easy ride during the meeting, which was held in the Sir Bobby Robson Suite at Portman Road.
The team’s poor run of form, style of play, the lack of entertainment and the reliance on young loanee players were all subjects broached from the floor.
And asked whether this could his last Town PLC AGM, Keane replied honestly and with wit: “It could be, possibly so, yes, but then it might be your last as well!” said Keane wryly.

“I always set myself high standards and I set the bar very high,” added Keane.
