Vote Keane for Mayor, 2009, poster

As part of the project Straw Poll posters, encouraging the populace of Salford to vote for former Manchester United Captain Roy Keane as mayor of Greater Manchester, were placed in the windows of local shops and private residencies.

What better man for this role of mayor than Keane. A no-nonsense working class guy, used to thinking on his feet and dealing with both temperamental youths and hard edged business men. As a player he had massive respect within the game as a whole and a reputation as a hard-man willing to be physically aggressive in his domination of opponents, this combined with the hatred he is held in by City fans (and some United ones) would make him the perfect spectacle candidate for the job of mayor.
