Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel is convinced that Louis Van Gaal is the right man to take the Red Devils into a new era. The former Danish international believes that given time the Dutchman can bring Manchester United back to the heights they reached during Ferguson's reign at Old Trafford. He reminded everyone that the Scotsman struggled at first, but brought two decades of success for the Manchester club. Schmeichel also reiterated his love for the club he served for eight years, saying that Old Trafford will always be his "home". "Manchester United will always be my home, part of me," Schmeichel told Goal . "Alex Ferguson is not there anymore and the club is going through difficult times but I believe bringing Louis Van Gaal was a good move. The new team and new coach just need time; it is not easy to reach that level that Ferguson's United was at," the big Dane added. "If you can remember, it took Ferguson some time to manage things in his way too and, after that, he ruled for two decades," ...
Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has labelled Sir Alex Ferguson a 'f* p*' after revealing the truth surrounding his exit from Old Trafford. The Republic of Ireland international left the Red Devil in 2005 to join Celtic despite being one of the club's most successful captains as he won seven Premier League titles, four FA Cups and the Champions League under Ferguson. But in his new book, The Second Half, Keane reveals that, following an argument with assistant manager Carlos Queiroz and a controversial interview on MUTV his relationship with Ferguson broke down and that the veteran coach threatened to rip up his contract. "I said to Ferguson, ‘Can I play for somebody else? And he said, ‘Yeah you can, cos we’re tearing up your contract’," he writes. "So I thought, ‘All right – I’ll get fixed up.’ I knew there’d be clubs in for me when the news got out. I said, ‘Yeah – I think we have come to the end.’ "I just thought, ‘F* p*’ – and I stood up an went ‘Yeah. I’m o ...

Roy Keane believes David Moyes inherited a weak dressing room at Manchester United. The Scot was sacked by the Red Devils in April, just 11 months after being named as Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor at Old Trafford. Moyes struggled to land his top targets in the transfer market in 2012, whilst failing to win nine of their 17 Premier League home games during his reign. The former Everton man also appeared to lose the United dressing room, with Rio Ferdinand a notable critic of the sacked manager. But former Red Devils captain Keane sympathised with Moyes in his new autobiography, ‘The Second Half’, pointing the finger at the United players. “I wonder about the current United dressing room,” said Keane. “When a manager like Sir Alex Ferguson is replaced, the new man needs a helping hand along the way. “Does that mean every player should like the new manager or his coaching staff, or love his new sessions and everything about him? No. “I look at the current players, and they should have been d ...

Denis Irwin has paid tribute to Ryan Giggs after his retirement. Irwin played behind the veteran midfielder on the left flank during the 1990s and early 2000s. "I suppose all good things come to an end, but what an unbelievable player he has been for Manchester United. The way he's done it as well is testament to himself. Someone called him a 'freak of nature' at one point – he's been an unbelievable player, and certainly a legend." Irwin was replaced by Giggs against Everton in March 1991 as the latter made his Reds debut, and believes the new Old Trafford no.2 is among the best he has ever played with. "I was fortunate enough to play with Eric Cantona, Roy Keane, Bryan Robson – all fantastic players. Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Peter Schmeichel, Paul Scholes – unbelievable talents, but Ryan is right up there with them. "He was a fantastic player to have in front of you because you knew he would help you out with your defensive duties as well. He wasn't afraid to do the dirty side of football, to track ba ...

The 40-year-old Old Trafford legend will meet Van Gaal before the end of the week and is 'keen' to work with him. Giggs is also going to tell the Dutchman - who refused to talk about United at a Netherlands press conference on Tuesday - that he would like to be considered for a playing role as well as a coaching job. While Giggs is set to remain under Van Gaal, United have reportedly axed Phil Neville and Chris Woods from the club's backroom staff. Both arrived at Old Trafford as part of David Moyes' coaching staff. Former United favourite Roy Keane has hammered United defenders Phil Jones and Chris Smalling, amongst others.

Former Manchester United captain Roy keane says the Red Devils have a chance of qualification after their first-leg draw with Bayern Munich at Old Trafford. Manchester United will go to Munich for the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final with Bayern boosted in confidence after a 1-1 which saw the home side take the lead through Nemanja Vidic before Bastian Schweinsteiger equalising for the visitors before receiving a red card in the closing stages. Former captain Roy Keane, often a critical voice, was watching for television and saw positives. "They've got a chance," he said. "It's a fair result, the manager, players and fans played their part. You can't begrudge Bayern their equaliser, but Manchester United are more than capable of scoring in the away game. "We've seen United not turn up in big games, so they should go to Bayern with their confidence boosted.

Five or six players. That is all Man United need in order to reclaim their place at the top of English football again, according to Roy Keane. The former Man United captain, who skippered the side to great success, now works as an ITV pundit and reckons a summer spending spree could bring back the good times at Old Trafford. “They’ve kind of cut corners in terms of transfers in the last few years, they’ve not gone out and got the big players, and it’s just caught up with them this year,” Keane said. Following the comments, Man United chief executive Ed Woodward insisted cash will be spent when the window opens and new faces will arrive. "We'll invest in the squad as we need to, to make sure we compete at the highest level," he said. Sportsecofin.com
Djemba-Djemba: My Man United regrets At Manchester United, Eric Djemba-Djemba was billed as the new Roy Keane. It took just 20 appearances for supporters to reach a different verdict. These days they call him Sir Alex Ferguson’s worst-ever signing. In response, St Mirren’s new man offers a shrug. Youthful naivety is the defence. Not only for his ineffectual performances on the pitch. But also for the unflattering headlines and hedonistic excess which shattered his reputation off it. Despite earning £19,000 a week, his finances were a mess. Former agent, Christophe Mongay, claimed he was ‘on a different planet’. That at the peak of his Old Trafford meltdown, Djemba-Djemba juggled his cash and debts between 30 different bank accounts and owned 10 4×4 cars. Reclining in a natty cap and some flash jewellery within St Mirren’s media room yesterday, the midfielder – a former African Nations Cup winner with Cameroon – was keen to put the record straight. ‘You know, the headlines say one thing. ...
Last I will post on the Mata/United topic, thoughts? .Is Mata nothing more than a panic by for David Moyes, who has seen his side fall out of the title race, as well as the two domestic cups? The confusion over Mata’s arrival at Old Trafford is that he doesn’t fit into United’s current system. His best role, playing behind the main striker, is where Wayne Rooney plies his trade. Mata is not a wide player and is certainly not a central midfielder in any shape or form. He comes into the one area where United aren’t short of quality. The Red Devils are lacking a Roy Keane and Paul Scholes in the middle of the park, a leader with some never-say-die steel to them. Maybe Mata’s signature will keep the restless fans appeased for a while and at least give Moyes the potential to change formation in desperate times of need.
Oh Roy Keane he's a demon, he wears a demon's hat Coz when he saw Old Trafford he said "I fancy that" The roll all time to sign him but he chose the red and white of word famous Man United coz we're always Dynamite
Manchester United: Robbie Savage says 12 players should go By Robbie Savage BBC football pundit Manchester United must spend £200m if they are to rebuild their squad to the standard that once made sides visiting Old Trafford feel helpless. United lost for the third time in a row with defeat at Sunderland on Tuesday and I think as many as 12 of the 27 players who regularly feature for them are now on borrowed time. Blunt United Wayne Rooney tops the Premier League's assist-makers this season but he is the only United player in the top 40. Manchester City, meanwhile, have eight players on the same list The players are getting shot at by people like me, but they should look at themselves. Are they running hard enough? Are they tackling hard enough? Are they putting the same effort in as they did for Sir Alex Ferguson? These are the questions I'd like to ask them, because they do not seem to be. The fear factor I had to deal with at Old Trafford when the likes of Roy Keane, Paul Scholes and David Beckham wer ...
If Sir Alex Ferguson truly loves Manchester United he should walk away now Roy Keane is right with his claim that Sir Alex Ferguson cannot let go of his Old Trafford ties and until he has severed all formal associations, David Moyes will find himself playing second fiddle to The Boss Face in the crowd: But Sir Alex Ferguson is much more than that and his very presence is threatening Manchester United's season Photo: GETTY IMAGES By James Corrigan 9:20PM GMT 10 Dec 2013 46 Comments Just because Roy Keane is completely bitter does not mean he is entirely wrong. Granted, everything the Irishman says about Sir Alex Ferguson has to be taken with a pinch of salt, if not Anthrax. Yet, Keane is right about one thing. Fergie cannot let go. And he really should. Obviously, Keane is overstating it when accusing Ferguson of “still striving for power” at Old Trafford. That does not make much sense, if any at all. Up until May, Ferguson enjoyed as much control at Manchester United as any manager has enjoyed at any ...

AMAZING MAN U FACTS Manchester United have won the FA Cup more often than any other team, but have also lost more FA Cup Finals than any team other than Everton. The first ever floodlit match at Old Trafford was against Bolton Wanderers on March 23 1957. Each pylon stood 160 feet high. Bolton won the game 2-0. Ryan Giggs, Roy Keane and Peter Schmeichel are the only players in the history of English football to have won three sets of Double Winner's Medals, with Manchester United in 1994, 1996 and 1999. In one of the club's biggest upsets, United goalkeeper Gary Bailey saved three penalties against Ipswich Town at Portman Road in 1980. But United still lost the game 6-0. Sir Alex Ferguson's first game as manager of Manchester United was on November 8th 1986 at Oxford United. Oxford won 2-0!

Roy Keane was a legend he wore a legends hat, but when he left Old Trafford he became a bitter ***
Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira has revealed he started the infamous tunnel row between the Gunners and Manchester United in 2005. Vieira sparked a hostile exchange between the two bitter rivals at Highbury as the players lined up in the tunnel ahead of kick-off. The bust-up was partially captured by television cameras, with United's Roy Keane responding angrily after Vieira exchanged words with Gary Neville. United went on to win the Premier League clash 4-2, with neither side punished for the fracas, and former France star Vieira admitted he caused the tunnel chaos in an ITV documentary, Keane and Vieira: The Best of Enemies, to be screened on Tuesday. "I started it," Vieira said. "I was cool, I was really calm, I was smiling at him - and then he lost it. "When we played at Old Trafford his (Gary Neville's) tackling was flying in on Robert Pires and he was doing it on purpose, and I said 'listen, we are not at Old Trafford here, this is Highbury'. "So I said to him 'if you touch Robert, I will come after ...
The frequent attacks by Roy Keane on Sir Alex Ferguson to me is a reflection of why he is unsuccessful after his career at Old Trafford. All this talk about Fergie seeking power after retirement or Fergie not being loyal to Man Utd by Roy Keane shows the hurt and hatred he feels after Fergie kicked him out of the club after Keane criticised his team mates in 2006 on MUTV. Ingratitude usually leads to this.
Roy Keane says former manager Sir Alex Ferguson is still attempting to exert his influence at Manchester United. Ferguson, who retired as United manager in May after 26 years and was replaced by Everton boss David Moyes, is now a director at Old Trafford. "Everything is about control and power [with Ferguson]," said Keane, who left United after falling out with the Scot.

THE Red Devils are to renew their longstanding deal with Satan in a ceremony before their home game this Sunday. United will wear *** s logo on their away kit The club, who first began worshipping Satan in the 1930s because they couldn’t afford new kit, owe their astonishing success over the last 25 years to a pact brokered by Sir Alex Ferguson. New manager David Moyes will invite the Horned One back to the heart of the club by drawing an inverted pentacle on the Old Trafford pitch before the Arsenal match. Club ambassador Sir Bobby Charlton said: “We’ve always had strong links with Hades, culminating in the loan of senior demonic torturer Roy Keane, and it’s great to reaffirm that before a home crowd.” Ryan Giggs, who after retirement hopes to become an Archduke of *** said: “People put my longevity down to self-belief, extra training or opposing players’ terror of my otherworldly Welshness. “Personally I think it’s all about focus, commitment, and my pre-match ritual of bathing in .. ...

The Rundown: Manchester United v Arsenal: 10 famous matches Manchester United host Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday for the latest instalment in one of English football's fiercest rivalries. Here we pick out 10 of the best meetings between the two clubs over the past 25 years. 1- Manchester United 2-1 Arsenal (a.e.t): April 14, 1999, Villa Park (FA Cup semi-final replay) Ryan Giggs's wonder goal can be forgiven for stealing the headlines in what was an exceptional match. United took a first-half lead with a classy long-range strike from David Beckham in a game that ebbed and flowed, until the Gunners equalised midway through the second half with a Denis Bergkamp shot that deflected off Jaap Stam and squirmed under the body of Peter Schmeichel. It took on a whole new dimension when Roy Keane was sent off for a second yellow card and, with the introduction of Marc Overmars, Arsenal were all over United. Nicolas Anelka had a goal disallowed for offside and United's dream of an unprecedented trophy haul seem ...

Reports by Jeremy Wilson of the Telegraph state that the Former Manchester United manager believes Gerrard not to be a "top top player" and is inferior to the likes of Roy Keane and Paul Scholes. Ferguson's claims that when playing for Liverpool against a United side featuring both Keane and Scholes, Gerrard was largely ineffective. BUT. January 2002, the venue is Old Trafford and there is five minutes left of a tense encounter between United and Liverpool. Guess who steps up and delivers a quite magnificent pass that opens up the United defence before being put in the back of the net by Danny Murphy? Yes, you guessed it, Steven Gerrard. Were Keane and Scholes in the starting lineup that day? You bet they were. THEN. One year on at the Millennium Stadium and it's Liverpool versus United in the final of the League Cup. Gerrard opens the scoring with a truly wonderful long-range effort and Liverpool win 2-0. No prizes for guessing which two players were in the United starting lineup. AND. Despite being of t ...
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger on Friday said he wouldn't be surprised to see Alex Ferguson go back on his decision to retire. Former Manchester United manager Ferguson quit Old Trafford at the end of last season after 26 and a half years in charge. The Scot was back in the headlines this week with the publication of an updated autobiography which included a number of stinging rebukes aimed at the likes of David Beckham, Roy Keane, Steven Gerrard and Rafael Benitez. Wenger has his own dedicated chapter in the book, entitled 'Competing with Wenger' - much of which is centred around the infamous 'pizzagate' at Old Trafford in October 2004 when United ended the Gunners' 49-match unbeaten Premier League run. The Gunners boss had a spikey relationship with Ferguson at times, but they are more friendly these days. And Wenger, now the longest-serving manager in the Premier League following Ferguson's retirement, is not certain it will be easy for his old rival to just simply walk away forever and the Frenchman su ...
Dean Saunders on the season so far at Old Trafford: "I look at Manchester United now and they aren't right in the middle of midfield, they don't have the pace and sharpness that players of the past have had like Roy Keane, Paul Scholes and David Beckham."
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers enjoyed a dig at Sir Alex Ferguson by saying that Manchester United are 10 players short of making a challenge for the Premier League title. The Former United boss tore into the Manchester club's bitter rivals in his new autobiography, claiming Rodgers is 'eight players short of becoming genuine title contenders'. But as Rodgers hit back at Ferguson's criticism, he showed his sense of humour with a shot of his own at the Old Trafford club. Rodgers said: 'That's probably two short of what they need. We need eight, they need 10.' Ferguson's stinging attack on the Anfield club included his surprise that Rodgers was appointed as Dalglish’s replacement, given that he was ‘only’ 39 years old. He also said that Steven Gerrard is not a 'top, top player', claming that the Liverpool midfielder 'seldom had a kick' when coming against a midfield of Roy Keane and Paul Scholes.
Michael Laudrup believes Sir Alex Ferguson was wrong to lift the lid on his dealings with some of his former players in his autobiography. David Beckham and Roy Keane were among the ex-Manchester United players to come in for criticism from Ferguson as the Scot made public the goings-on in the Old Trafford dressing room during his trophy-laden tenure. But Swansea manager Laudrup does not believe it is fair to reveal behind-the-scenes events, particularly when managers customarily demand loyalty to the group from their players.
read this reds, well worth a read trust me... Roy Keane has accused Sir Alex Ferguson of not knowing the meaning of loyalty after the Former Manchester United manager criticised him and other former players at Old Trafford in his new book. Keane responded witheringly after Ferguson reopened the pair's long-running feud by saying the Former United captain "absolutely overstepped the mark" in a notorious but never-aired MUTV interview that fast-tracked the Irishman's departure from Old Trafford in 2005. He also effectively rubbished Keane's chances of making a career in football management. Other Former United players are criticised in the book, among them Owen Hargreaves and David Beckham. Keane told ITV on Tuesday night: "I think I do remember having a conversation with the manager when I was at the club about loyalty. In my opinion I don't think he knows the meaning of the word. "It doesn't bother me too much what he has to say about me but to constantly criticise other players at the club who brought hi ...
Roy Keane "'I don't think some of the people who come to Old Trafford can spell football, never mind understand it.'.
Premier League - Fergie: I'm not settling old scores The eagerly-awaited update to "Managing My Life", his first extensive view on the world, published in the wake of United's historic 1999 Treble-winning campaign, landed on Tuesday morning. Ferguson then spoke for 45 minutes at a press conference in central London. All the expected topics were raised. Indeed, chapters have been devoted to Roy Keane, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Liverpool, David Beckham and Wayne Rooney, all of whom Ferguson fell out with at some stage of his magnificent career. It makes grim reading for some at times. And Ferguson was equally forthright under wider questioning afterwards. But he insisted it was only a summing up of events of significance he felt United fans deserved to read about. "You talk about the number of players I have had," he said. "There are bound to be one or two issues and you have to deal with them. "It is not a matter of settling scores. It is a matter of explaining why I had to make certain decisions. "For all the ...
Just heard reports regarding Roy Keane claiming that Ferguson 'doesn't know the meaning of loyalty' Sir Alex spent 26 years at Old Trafford!
In his explosive new book, Sir Alex Ferguson writes of Wayne Rooney's desire to leave, how David Beckham became too big for his boots, why Steven Gerrard isn't as good as Paul Scholes and how relief swept through the Old Trafford ranks when Roy Keane departed for Celtic in 2005.
Sir Alex Ferguson slagged Roy Keane off in his autobiography and during the live press conference today.. Roy Keane after hearing the comments hits back at Fergie calling him 'Not loyal' and critcising the players who brought success to the club. Here's what I think of Keano's comments.. We all loved Keano for his aggressive and straightforward behaviour, on AND off the pitch as well. What Roy Keane did to *** Fergie off was to talk against the young players at the club who lost 4-1 to Middlesbrough at Old Trafford which was one of the worst United game ever. I think Keane's comments were right as he was captain of the club but the way he complained about the players was wrong but that's just Roy Keane for you.. I'll end up with this.. Keane was always a proud stubborn player. He was a horse. Sir Alex was a rider. You can make Horse run for you but Horse will always have his own mind slash a horse hard and he may snap and throw you off Keane was the hardest horse to handle in the history of Manchester Un ...
Sir Alex: Ronaldo's my best-ever United star! SIR Alex Ferguson managed some great stars in his 27 years at Old Trafford. But who was the greatest United player he managed? Bryan Robson? Ryan Giggs? Eric Cantona? Roy Keane or David Beckham? None of the above. One man, he says, stands apart...Cristiano Ronaldo. HARRY HARRIS has the revelation from Sir Alex's new autobiogrpahy... Sir Alex Ferguson clearly believes Cristiano Ronaldo was the best player under his guidance at Old Trafford. During his 27 years in charge at Old Trafford, Sir Alex won 38 trophies and managed some of the biggest names in football, like David Beckham, Eric Cantona, Peter Schmeichel, Bryan Robson, Roy Keane, Jaap Stam and Ruud Van Nistelrooy. But his affection for Ronaldo shines through the pages of his latest autobriography, published Tuesday, with such a media fanfare. Sir Alex allowed Ronaldo to leave Old Trafford, but only after Real Madrid had agreed to pay £80m for the winger. "Cristiano was the most gifted player I managed," ...

Man U are to 'trial' a singing section to improve the atmosphere at Old Trafford. 75000 at all home games and no atmosphere! Roy Keane was correct about the prawn sandwich brigade.
Manchester United vs Bayer Leverkusen KO 19:45 For United this is their 18th consecutive UEFA Champions League campaign but for Moyes, it is his first taste of the group stage of a competition that the English title holders won twice under his predecessor, Sir Alex Ferguson. This is also the first UEFA Champions League fixture as a coach for Leverkusen's Sami Hyypiä, a winner as a player with Liverpool FC in 2005. Previous Meetings; Leverkusen overcame United on away goals when the clubs met for the first time in the 2001/02 semi-finals. That tie began with a 2-2 first-leg draw at Old Trafford, United leading twice through a Boris Živković own goal (29) and Ruud Van Nistelrooy penalty (67) and Leverkusen responding through Michael Ballack (62) and Oliver Neuville (75). Neuville's 45th-minute equaliser back in Germany cancelled out a Roy Keane goal (28), earning Klaus Toppmöller's Leverkusen a 1-1 draw on the night and victory on away goals. Ryan Giggs is the only survivor in either squad of that 2002 ...
New Manchester United signing Marouane Fellaini says he can emulate Roy Keane to become the defensive lynchpin in the team's midfield. • Jolly: Moyes backs Fellaini • Payne: Fellaini arrives • Okwonga: United, Moyes show faith in Nani Manager David Moyes also revealed at the player's unveiling on Friday that United left it late to sign him from Everton as until that point they had been hoping to wrap up a deal to land Leighton Baines from Everton as well. "Roy Keane was an aggressive player who could win every ball. Maybe I can do this as well," Fellaini said. "I can win the ball. I can clear the ball. I can play clean. The manager must decide where I play but I want to play defensive midfield. In the past they have had (Eric) Cantona, Keane, (David) Beckham. I hope (I can do it too). I will work hard for this." With Fellaini having to wait all summer for his move to Old Trafford, the midfielder admits he started to doubt whether the deal was ever going to be completed. “With the chairman at Evert ...
United set to announce first major signings June 29, 2013 Manchester United are set to announce the signings Ezequiel Garay and Kevin Strootman this week. A deal worth £17m for the Argentinian defender is to be completed. Garay has been looking for property in the Cheshire area, with the Argentine defender set to finalise his move from Benfica. The Portuguese club have already moved to identify his replacements with the acquisitions of 26-year old Canadian born Portuguese defender Steven Vitória, and 23-year old Argentine Lisandro Ezequiel López. Kevin Strootman will follow Garay to Old Trafford. Strootman now a regular in the Dutch national team is keen on a move to the champions and PSV will command a fee of £15m from United for the Dutch Under-21 captain. He is box-to-box ball- winning midfielder with an aggressive and imposing figure in the centre of the park. United seek to secure his services in a position they have been looking to fill since the departure of Roy Keane in November 2005. And with ...
Manchester - In the transfer market this season, Manchester United linked with Cesc Fabregas and Robert Lewandowski. According to Rio Ferdinand, it's stupid if the player refuses to play at Old Trafford. 34-year-old defender was confirmed that there was no better place than with the Red Devils if you want to be a footballer greater. The former Leeds United player Cristiano Ronaldo's take an example. Portuguese player was assessed Ferdinand could be like at this time due to playing with Manchester United. Therefore, the British player took Fabregas and Lewandowski did not hesitate to join the MU. "If Manchester United came to bid, you have to accept it. Though you are a good player, you will be more intense at this club and one example is Cristiano Ronaldo," he told The Sun. "Players like Rya Giggs, Roy Keane, David Beckham, Andy Cole all become great players at United. If you are an ambitious player, then you should playing at a top club. At the age of 23-27 years, won many trophies is important, "he clos ...
In the first leg between Manchester United and Porto, United manager Sir Alex Ferguson confronted Mourinho after Roy Keane received a red card for stamping on Vitor Baia.In the second leg, Porto were on the verge of an away goals defeat when Costinha scored a goal with only little more than thirty seconds left for the official 90 minutes time, to win the tie and Mourinho celebrated the goal flamboyantly. Mourinho's Porto win over Ferguson's United foreshadowed a move to the Premier League managing Chelsea F.C., where the two men would enjoy a competitive but respectful relationship. In 2005, after Chelsea clinched the Premiership, Ferguson had his players form a guard of honor at Chelsea's next game at Old Trafford, a favor that Mourinho returned in 2007 at Stamford Bridge after Ferguson's squad were confirmed league champions
Now that old fart ( Fergie ) has retired, football pundits are discussing who he considers to be his best signing. There are different opinions on the topic. Some consider this title belongs to Bryan Robson. Others think it's King Cantona. Some say it's hot headed Keano ( Roy Keane) or maybe Ronaldo or Rooney. To me this title belongs to one and only captain Keane. When he entered the field from the tunnel in Old Trafford the crowd used to go wild screaming " there is only one Keano". The guy had a winners mentality and lived to win. Many a times he had bailed United to victory with this attitude. Who can forget his bust with another colorful character Patrick Veiera in the tunnel or his throwing the ball at the back of England captain Alan Shearer. He lacked Zidane's skill but made up for it with physical qualities and thuggish ways. He and his boss shared this similar football qualities and their sheer will to win. At the end of this time he fell out with his mentor but deep down both have a respect for ...
So that was Old Trafford done on a title winning night. Funny old crowd and I understand Roy Keane comments now
Roy Keane's renegade streak always marked him out as a potentially great pundit. His performance on Tuesday night shows he is now delivering on that promise, writes Jonathan Liew Despite finishing as a goalless draw, the World Cup qualifier between Spain and Ireland in Seville in 1992 was notable for two reasons. The first was the memorable and unintentionally mirthful reaction of RTE commentator George Hamilton to the Spain manager’s decision to substitute Emilio Butragueno: “He’s pulling him off! The Spanish manager is pulling his captain off!" The other was that it was the night when Roy Keane came of age as a world-class midfielder.

Invariably when a player exhausts the patience of Sir Alex, his days at Old Trafford are soon cut short. Just ask Jaap Stam, Roy Keane, Ruud Van Nistelrooy or David Beckham. Rooney be careful with sir Alex Ferguson.
Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson and his players face disciplinary action after refusing to speak to the media following their controversial Champions League exit to Real Madrid. European football's governing body UEFA said on Wednesday that their disciplinary commission would look into the incidents at a meeting on March 21. Ferguson is in trouble for not attending the mandatory press conference after his side's 2-1 loss to Real at Old Trafford, a game which turned on the second-half dismissal of Nani. Assistant manager Mike Phelan faced the press instead while United players passed through the mixed zone refusing to talk to reporters. -AFP
Roy Keane should never be allowed back into Old Trafford. Fine you and Sir Alex Ferguson have your differences but Nani has done nothing to annoy you and you really should not have stuck up for that clown from Turkey, instead you should have sided with your former team mates. Finally, if Nani, does not owe 20 yards off the football pitch, then back in the days you did not either. I now think its right to say that a 'thug like yourself' should have been locked away in a prison cell for a long while, after admitting in your book, that you deliberately injuried [Hartland] which ended the players career. I hoped Mr Southgate or Mr Dixion shut you up last night!
Ryan Giggs twists Luka Modric inside out Photograph: Tom Jenkins for the GuardianJamie Jackson at Old TraffordIn a career of fairy tales this was the yarn Ryan Giggs dare not dream. To hope for a start against Real Madrid and make a 1,000th appearance at the age of 39 sounded like the fantasy of a man searching for his marbles.Then Sir Alex Ferguson made it reality and the team-sheets showed the name of the Welshman in the Manchester United XI. As the news reverberated around Old Trafford that Wayne Rooney was dropped – perhaps "the writing is on the wall for Wayne," Roy Keane opined on ITV – Giggs bounded through a pre-game warm-up that had been seen 999 times before.Then came the bombshell. As the contest unfolded the role for Giggs became clear: despite having legs 12 years older than Rooney, he was deemed better equipped to be the second man alongside Rafael da Silva in the quest to stymie Cristiano Ronaldo along the left side.This was the job handed to Rooney three weeks ago at the Bernabéu in t ...
I'm sorry but Fergie is one big glory hunter. How come he always beams at the cameras and basks in the limelight when his team wins? And Ferdinand should be banned for clapping in the refs face after the match. I thought he was big on respect? Another teddy throwing cry baby. Roy Keane wasn't fooled. He told it like it was - dangerous play and a sending off. Tell me this though, if that had been Alonso sticking his studs in Nani's chest, would the Old Trafford faithful be screaming for him to be sent off? Too right they would. Like they screamed for every non-handball and for a penalty each time a red shirt threw itself to the ground. Double standards at Old Trafford? You bet. It's only a talking point because they aren't used to being reffed like other teams are. You lost. Get over it.
Roy Keane for such wonderful player in your day you have become a bit of a tool as a pundit, to even suggest that Nani deserved to get sent, tells me your still bitter about your departure from Old Trafford, you are becoming hated by the very fans that adored you. In addition Eric Cantona who was 10 times the player you were also left old Trafford under a black cloud, however has never spoken a bad word about the club!
It is rare these days to find players that match the unprecedented devotion of Manchester United legends Bryan Robson and Roy Keane. Their desire to succeed was extraordinary, captaining their respective teams to many years of unrivalled success and achievement. Both enjoyed twelve year stints at Old Trafford, winning no less than 19 major trophies between them. So which of these two midfield generals can be considered the greatest?
Victor Wanyama As well as a new left-back and centre-back, Manchester United also need a new midfield enforcer, someone in the same mould as Roy Keane, who Sir Alex has never really quite managed to replace. United have been linked with a move for Celtic’s Victor Wanyama in recent days, and the powerful Kenyan international can play both at centre-back and as a defensive midfielder, which would seem to resolve United’s woes in both areas of the pitch. With Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs looking likely to call time on their storied careers at Old Trafford, United really are going to need a reinforcement, and £10 million rated Victor Wanyama could be just the man for the job.
"“Some people come to Old Trafford and can’t spell football” - Roy Keane" that's most united fans.a sad truth
By beating Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday and moving on to 55 points at the top of the Premier League table, United eclipsed the highest points haul that they have recorded in the opening 22 games of a season since the introduction of the three-points-for-a-win system in 1981-82 – overtaking the previous record of 54 points secured by the same stage of the 2006-07 season The 55 points gained – with 18 victories, one draw and three defeats – overhauls many of the impressive tallies amassed by previous great United sides The class of 1993-94, considered by some to be Ferguson’s most polished side - with Peter Schmeichel, Steve Bruce, Gary Pallister, Roy Keane, a young Ryan Giggs and Eric Cantona providing its core - had two points less than this current batch from their opening 22 games, while Fergie’s Treble winners of 1999 were incredibly 11 points worse off at this stage of the season, with just 41 points. If we look further back, to before the Ferguson years, it soon becomes apparent that ...
Alex Ferguson has always insisted that referees should be respected. The Manchester United boss angrily confronted official Mike Dean at Old Trafford on Boxing Day. But on March 22, 2008, Fergie said it was “absolutely ridiculous” for managers and players to abuse refs. He said: “We are talking about respect for referees at grassroots level and I think that is absolutely correct. “The haranguing of referees is absolutely ridiculous — we know that. It’s not right. “We see it as an issue. Since the situation with Andy D’Urso (when the ref was blasted by Roy Keane, Jaap Stam, Nicky Butt, David Beckham and Gary Neville in 2000), we’ve not done anything like that.” FOOTBALL fans around the country were up in arms last night as Alex Ferguson escaped an FA rap for haranguing referee Mike Dean. Fergie steamed into Dean, his linesman AND the fourth official before the start of the second half for his decision to allow a JonnyEvans own goal during Manchester United’s 4-3 win over Newcastle. Th ...
United's Xmas *** by 10 points, but United reduced the arrears with one of the finest festive results of the Sir Alex era. It was a must-win match and Andy Cole gave United the perfect start, hitting an angled side-footed drive in the sixth minute before Roy Keane fired home after the break. The gap was down to seven points and the title race was back on. 28/12/1992: United 5 Coventry City 0 Just two days after a thrilling comeback at Hillsborough, United welcomed on-song Coventry to Old Trafford, needing a return to winning ways. It took Ryan Giggs only six minutes to float home a glorious opener on the turn, before Mark Hughes slotted in a second. An Eric Cantona penalty and late strikes from Lee Sharpe and Denis Irwin had all onlookers purring, including Sky Blues boss Bobby Gould. “It was magnificent, a wonderful advertisement,” said the Coventry manager. “Some of the football was a delight to behold.” 29/12/1993: Oldham Athletic 2 United 5 Two years after United had hit the Latics for si ...

"Some people come to Old Trafford and can't spell Football" Roy Keane
Whether you're a Man U lover, hater or mere bystander, this article sent in by a friend will interest you. Enjoy it... Jeff Winter, a retired referee, once sent Roy Keane off in a match. He was then criticised by Sir Alex Ferguson and not given a Manchester United game to referee for two years. Alain Wiley refereed a United game and despite sending off Kieran Richardson of Sunderland, he was lambasted by Ferguson for being “fat and unfit”. The game ended 2-2. That would be the end of Wiley’s refereeing career. On his Wikipedia page, it is reported that Wiley “agreed to retire” at the end of that season. Agreed with whom? No one knows. Manchester City romped to a 6-1 win at Old Trafford, inflicting on their city rivals their biggest embarrassment under Ferguson. The referee on that day was Mark Clattenburg. He sent Johnny Evans off in the second half for a clear professional foul. There have been 34 Manchester United league games since that day. The number of times Clattenburg has refereed them? ...

via The Guardian - Roy Keane: the Tony Soprano of Old Trafford by Rob Smyth
In an extract from a new BT anthology, Rob Smyth explains his unconditional man-love for Roy Keane
Although I fully support Rio Ferdinand's stance for not wearing the "kick it out" shirt because of the pathetic punishment given to John Terry for his racist remarks, I can't help but think, having incurred Fergie's wrath, that his days at Old Trafford will soon be over. You only have to look at Jaap Stam, David Beckham, Roy Keane, Ruud Van Nistlerooy and Carlos Tevez as proof of that.
Two years on, and Rooney is no longer as dispensable as he once was. United’s attacking options have seen to that. Welbeck is maturing into a decent line leader. Robin Van Persie is the finished article as a striker while Chicharito Hernandez, the runaway success of 2010-11, finds getting into the team highly difficult. The midfield, meanwhile, has long needed strengthening. It is now seen as Ferguson’s blind spot as year on year, transfer window after transfer window, he has neglected to buy a central midfielder. The last of his purchases there came in 2007, and while Anderson may remain, few could view him as a trustworthy option. Shinji Kagawa is a forward player, while Nick Powell played much of his football at Crewe Alexandra as a striker. Neither is there the box-to-box player that United have lacked since Roy Keane took an angry leave of Old Trafford. Owen Hargreaves' knees gave way before he could ever establish himself.
Proof of the unjust power & control that Man Utd & Alex Ferguson have over officials in football. It is a disgrace: Martin Atkinson refereed Man Utd's 2-1 defeat to Chelsea in early 2011. He was criticised by Alex Ferguson and has not refereed a single Man Utd game since then. Former referee Jeff Winter has said that after sending off Roy Keane early in his Premier League refereeing career, he had to endure the wrath of Alex Ferguson, and did not referee a Man Utd game over the next few seasons, despite frequently refereeing games involving every other Premier League club. When Man City beat Man Utd 6-1 at Old Trafford, Mark Clattenburg was the referee. He has not refereed there since that game. Mike Dean was the referee when Man Utd were beaten by Blackburn 3-2 at Old Trafford, he has also not refereed there since. And most recently, Chris Foy was the referee last weekend when Tottenham won 3-2 at Old Trafford against Man Utd. After heavy criticism from Alex Ferguson, he has since been demoted to referee ...
It makes perfect sense, therefore, that he is thinking ahead to make sure United are in the best possible shape when he eventually retires - and he is likely to have the deciding say on who succeeds him at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola are, in Ferguson’s mind, the only two candidates who can take on a job that is virtually impossible. How do you replace the greatest club manager ever, a man who has won 12 Premier League titles? It is not a task that someone like David Moyes could take on with confidence given he has never won a trophy with Everton. Nor is it a job for a United legend like Ryan Giggs or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Yes, they are certainly the type of figures who know the club and are worth having in the coaching set-up, but the job is too big for them. A few years ago, the likes of Roy Keane, Steve Bruce and Mark Hughes were all being mentioned as potential replacements for Ferguson but would not even make a 50-man longlist now. No. Replacing the best requires the best. Ferguson ...
Man Utd Last time vs Gala United 4 Galatasaray 0 | UEFA Champions League | Wednesday 7 December 1994 When Manchester United last hosted Turkish giants Galatasaray, a fresh-faced youngster from Leytonstone made his Champions League debut. David Beckham was actually one of four young guns in the United line-up; Nicky Butt, Simon Davies and Gary Neville were the others, with the latter pair combining to put the Reds in front after just three minutes at Old Trafford. Davies collected a cross-field pass from Neville and smashed a low finish into the bottom corner. Eric Cantona went close to adding a second before Beckham opened his European account, driving home from 20 yards. The Turks were on the ropes and, after the interval, Sir Alex's side pressed home the advantage, Roy Keane ghosting past two defenders to slot home the third, before Bulent's own goal made it 4-0 after great work by Cantona. Although United still bowed out of the 1994/95 competition, the seeds were sown. Five and a half years later, Beck ...
Preview: Galatasaray Date, time and coverage: Wednesday 19 September, 19:45 BST kick-off. Live on Sky Sports 4. Also follow it live on ManUtd.com with text and radio commentary. Form guide: Domestically, United have responded well to the opening-match defeat at Everton, reeling off three consecutive wins and scoring 10 goals in the process to move up to second in the table. Galatasaray are in hot form too as Fatih Terim's side are unbeaten this term with the 3-3 draw at Besiktas the only fixture that has not yielded three points. Selcuk Inan's late penalty secured the Super Cup against Fenerbahce at the start of the campaign and the Turkish champions are already top of the Super Lig table again. Last meeting: The Reds hammered the Istanbul giants 4-0 at Old Trafford in December 1994 in a match fondly remembered for David Beckham's first goal for the club. Fellow rookie Simon Davies also got on the scoresheet, with Roy Keane and an own goal by Bulent Korkmaz sealing a comprehensive victory - even if wasn't ...
Roy Keane was on the end of another wanker gesture in the spring of '93, from future Man U colleague Paul Ince, at Old Trafford.
Man Utd are playing Chelsea at Old Trafford one Saturday afternoon. Fifteen minutes into the game George Weah is adjudged to have fouled Japp Stam at a corner and furiously shouts and remonstrates at the ref. Upon seeing this, Beckham goes up to Weah, puts a finger up to his lips and says "Sh".Then he bursts out laughing and runs off leaving Weah somewhat bewildered. Ten minutes later Dwight Yorke puts the reds one up after sloppy defending and George is furious at his defence and shouts at them to get their act together. Once again Beckham comes up to Weah, says "Sh", starts wetting himself laughing and runs off again. Weah turns to his equally puzzled team mates but they all shrug their shoulders in confusion too. Just before half time old George loses his cool again and shouts at a linesman and for a third time Beckham repeats his strange act. The half time whistle goes and as the players walk off, Roy Keane goes to Beckham and says "Hey Becks, whats all that about with Weah then? "Beckham whispers so ...

Giggs could play for 50 seasons and would never reach the higher notes in Cantona's repertoire, while Henry was a supreme athlete and an instinctive natural finisher but nobody can really argue that he's had the weight of influence at Arsenal that Cantona did at United. Arsenal won two titles in Henry's eight seasons; United won four in Cantona's five and the one that got away owed much to his self-enforced absence. Yes, Henry has a statue at the Emirates, but Cantona is a religion at Old Trafford. Shearer was a rampaging force of nature, but while he was perpetually sprinting off to the crowd with one arm in the air celebrating, Cantona was forging an empire. And though Patrick Vieira and Roy Keane have both earned their place in the pantheon of Premier League greats, Cantona's legacy will live on long after they resume their hostilities in the great football match in the sky.
