    I really think he’s the best back to back CM ever. Dude was always so calm with the ball. Wasn’t the best creatively but fuck that dude was everywhere, tackled, and rarely lost the ball.

    It's just simply brilliant to watch a player giving his all on the pitch, like he's ready to die for the team.

    Thug on the field coward and traitor off it and that idiot Dumfree praising him for what should have been a yellow card tackle !!! I can't understand the Irish and Roy Keane his record speaks for itself. Refused to play for Ireland under 23s for Jack Charlton. Refused to play in the Japan pre world cup friendlies. Feined injury, threatened to leave Saipan twice then left and he is on record saying "I wasn't sent home no-one sends me home" he was a disruptive influence in the world cup squad criticising Bonner and Mick and moaning about everything in a place where they were only there for 5 days to acclimatize and get rid of Jetlag. As captain it was his job when things got tough was to rally his players instead, he ran away. So you can see why it's difficult to understand why the Irish see him as a hero. The Irish often say "Mick wasn't Irish" but he took them to their best performance in the world cup never losing a game in open play. You've just had an Irish manager with Keane on board how did they do? I rest my case.

    People say that Roy keane's performance against Juve was his defining performance. But this one was the most perfect by far. He literally never made a backwards pass nor gave the ball away

    A very grubby, semi talented player who was eventually sacked by Sir Alex Ferguson for an antagonistic personality that was not matched by performance on the pitch. Sir Alex tried to sign Stephen Gerard on multiple occasions to replace him while Keane was still at Man U.

    I remember reading somewhere that Van Gaal said this was probably the best performance by an individual player he had ever seen.... and that Keane had simply 'trampled' over his entire team.

    They played a good tight game that day it wasnt a great team but it was a good team.keane was in top form that day and gave us a great game.he always gave 110% but on that day we got a bit more from him.pity the world cup turned sour then when we got there...

    When Ireland had a Champions League winning captain in their midfield. Could you imagine uttering those words today or any time in the future??? I don't we appriciated some if the players we had then!!

    Keane wouldve been an asset to any team. He was an inspirational leader and the engine room of the team. He was always 100% dependable . and commanded alot of respect . Id dont think he was a great playmaker by any means but he would win the ball , break down the oppositions attack and give others the opportunities to create chances . He performed the basics extremely well without fancy footwork or showmanship. Incredible player !!

    • mm43501
      mm43501 Year ago +2

      You're wrong, he was also a very good playermaker indeed; not in Scholes league, but his passing, vision and geometry were absolutely great, especially for a player that spend so much energy in the game(and it usually brings to less accuracy)

    I'm a huge Roy Keane fan and I don't think his football intelligence and awareness get praised enough by fans (though plenty of players speak highly of him in this respect). He really takes the sting out of this game at times when the heat is on Ireland but at other moments he's rampaging around all over the place trying to make things happen. A very versatile and clever player who in the age of opta stats and detailed media coverage would be appreciated on a more technical level had he played nowadays. There's a match on TVclip against Liverpool at Anfield where his passing is just flawless and he must have made nearly a hundred passes with only one that was misplaced. An immense player.

      I'm so glad to be among people who actually acknowledge keane as a player. I'm an arsenal fan, but I'm just so baffled reading comments about keane nowadays, how he was just a tough man with no skills or football knowledge whatsoever. Those are just arrogant and naive people. Keane is a player I hated so much and admired so much at the same time. For me the best old school no. 6, defensive midfielder I've watched, alongside makelele, although personally I favourite keane. Yeah, he had that box to box ability in himself too, knew kow to make a late run, score, had a huge engine, but he usually played as "the" defensive midfielder in the team. He knew how to control a game, was highly intelligent and aware of his defensive and offensive impact and duties. Neat, accurate passer, very tidy and efficient on the ball, quick, mobile.. For me he was undoubtedly a world class player and a probably one of the best leaders in football, and biggest personalities in football I had the opportunity to watch. And admire. And hate :).

      Was the complete box to box CM. Great at tackling, great first touch, great at passing, great at heading, great long range shot, great vision, great movement, great ball retention. Had pace was very quick. World class player. Top 10 greatest of all time CM. Technically suberb and had immense passion too

    • kylereese2000

      He was, for me, the best central midfielder of his generation.
      I know the game you're talking about at Anfield and he absolutely schools Gerrard. But it was just another day's work for Roy. Ridiculously talented player. Always in space, available for the ball, never gave it away.
      Dictated the game's tempo, had an engine unlike anybody else and a desire that was unmatched.
      Popped up with more than a few important goals and was the only player back then that was able to put it up to the brilliant Zidane. (I don't say that lightly)
      I miss him so much but what can you do?
      Time moves on, unfortunately.

      Bobby Charlton was amazed at Keanes passing % rate over a season.It would regularly be in the high 90%'s

  • mm43501

    I love the half time analysis of Keane's tackle, and it's the reason why it's so disgusting nowadays to watch players doing some useless and forced fair play during the match. What the fuck is wrong with those pussies? I'm a supporter and I want my players to fight to the death against the opponents, like a war. After the game you can be friends, showing brotherhood, apologizing, and shaking hands. But before or during the game? I obviously don't mean they have to be dangerous or injury the opponents, ever, but I want my players not to show any mercy towards anybody. No friends on the field. Kick and be kicked, and do not complain. That is (was) football.
