    Kean is right about as looseing big games. Citeh won twice this year, Liverpool FA cup…and that is not good. We are big club, we can t let this happen all the time….

  2. WillieRedNut says:

    Who the fuck is Kean? Keane!

    Costas – probably the latter; no one reads my comments !

    Keane is a legend and has never been discrete so why should he change now. We loved his fire back then and now that he is lighting it on our behinds we despise it…he says it as he sees it. Phil Jones has really been a disappointment to me but Fergie is also culpable for that i.e. constant talks of future captain, etc. he’s proven nothing and personally i think someone play the devil’s advocacy on him (criticise him openely). I love Kagawa and Goetze is not better than him. Giroud and Belhanda?cheer

    We will win the league….just believe. I was so grieved and embittered when i saw Mancini having the impudence to stand up to Fergie.smh. cant blame him though, Fergie’s decision not to strenghten certain areas set everything in motion for this travesty to happen. wished Keano was on the pitch then cos Giggs was an epic fail of the invisible man, lol. not something i fancy seeing again.

    I agree with Albert Ross.

    In this interview with Keane towards the end …

    … when asked about United Roy just said “City may be in the driving seat just now but to me United are still the best team on the planet with the best support and the best manager.”

    So there!

    But maybe that doesn’t make sexy enough headlines for the media?

    Personally I would LOVE Fergie and Keane to make up as it is sad that such a truly great player and captain should be at loggerheads but I’m sure time will heal .. they will both mellow a bit and realise how they each enable each other’s ambitions to become reality and Keane can re-join the United family.

  8. Albert Ross says:

    Haiku – and I agree with you!

  9. AlphaRS says:

    If SAF speaks his mind he is called a legend.
    If Roy Keane speaks his mind he is some sort of cnut.

    Hows that work? I think that needs looking at.
    Roy “The REAL Captain Fantastic” Keane is a LEGEND.
    Without his drive and determination I don’t think United would have been half as sucessful.
    He didn’t do the team talks for SAF at half time for no reason you know.
