Shearer is such a twat. If he couldn’t play football, he’d be like a character from the office. Imagine going on about this stuff 20 years later. You’re a grandad for Christ sake!

To be fair, nobody talks about the past more than that muppet Keane.

You mean he played on longer.

He left OT in mid-November and played his first game for Celtic in early January - hardly a huge disruption.

Fact is, he was physically done by that stage, not least due to a playing style which whilst hugely committed, was also frequently reckless.

Whereas Sicknote managed his injuries so as to extend his career another couple of seasons.

Which of the two was the cleverer?

Keane didn’t play between September 2005-November 2005 due to injury, and made 10 appearances in the league for Celtic. It was a disrupted season. Leaving United mid season, joining Celtic compounded that.

I’m quite sure Keane could have played on in League 1 or 2 if he had wanted to.

Probably the guy who won a Champions League and numerous Premier Leagues.

Yeah, and all on his own... Wacko

Fyi, I'm not discussing who won the most, or who was the better, more accomplished player.

Rather, in a thread which is talking about Keane's aggression and whether he'd beat Shearer in a fight etc, I'm merely pointing out that he was paid to be a footballer, not a boxer.  So that the aggression which made him a fine player also counted against him, both for the toll it took on his body and for the suspensions.

Had he been cleverer, he might have managed things better and extended his career, like Anderton.

Then again, had be been cleverer, he wouldn't have let Shearer sucker him into that red card.

Nor would he have given Ferguson a chance to fcuk him out of the club just as soon as he'd served his usefulness.

Come to think of it, Saipan wasn't too clever either.

I think you mean:
"Only on ybig would you find two posters discussing Roy Keane on the Roy Keane thread, before another poster comes in with an entirely otiose and fatuous reference to politics."

LOL

yeah, I've said it before and I'll say it again about Keane, but he was no Darren Anderton.

Why is it that every time Roy Keane is brought up that someone tried to wind others up!?

But for what it’s worth, Roy played almost 650 professional club games, as well as 67(?) caps for Ireland. That’s a decent haul for anyone. 

Not sure why he’s being compared with Darren Anderton. More importantly, as previously alluded, he won 7 PL titles, a CL and number out others. I’d say he’d take that.

Playing career was brilliant, exceptional. The rest, other than a brief spark at Sunderland, has been embarrassing. Keane just cannot be taken seriously. Post Man United, Saipan defines him. He let us down. He is everything he once railed against. Most of all, Roy Keane is a disappointment to Roy Keane.
