      Agreed mate. There’s technical players around him to do the fancy stuff. Probably the best in the world at the time at doing the simple stuff and keeping the game ticking. His attitude towards the game was elite as well. Can’t really coach that, so that makes him one of a kind in my eyes. And I’m a Leicester fan who didn’t even like him in his playing days haha

      ​@spiffydaily8855 Would you believe he used to get dogs abuse from Irish TV sports pundits for playing too many simple passes. I remember Johnny Giles and Frank Stapleton both being critical of him about this. They were always saying he wasn't world class because he wasn't making enough assists. I think they saw in Keane a rival to their own past greatness and wanted to put him down.

      @@killbotone6210 I completely believe it. I suppose in a Man Utd team full of flashy gits, it’s probably easy to see Keane as the weak link in that regard? But imho, you have to appreciate him for what he’s there for. That said, was he ever really appreciated before he was gone? Lots of players seem to be labelled as world class these days, but it’s usually once they’re gone!

      He had a god like piece of control v Bayern away.
      Schmeichel ,facing his own goal had to hoof a back pass straight up into the air ,so high that it floated enough to drop into the left wing where Keane was.
      Elber ,seeing this , started to press but immediately gave up with a slump when Keane dragged down the ball ,swiveled and successfuly passed forward ,in one motion.
      Ball didn't touch the ground, it's in the Roy Keane passing compilation.

    @markjackson6325 8 หลายเดือนก่อน +74

    Of all the players I've seen in my almost 50 years of supporting United, prime Keano is the player this current team could do with the most. Read the game well, positionally sound, strong defensively, very rarely gave the ball away, bossed the middle of the park, a true leader, determined, passionate, demanded 100% from everyone on the team, high energy, covered box to box, and popped up with a good number of goals and assists. In essence, everything this current team isn't.

    Probably the most underrated "footballer". People think he was hard, aggressive and a leader. He was all of those things but for those of us lucky enough to watch him for united for many years also realise this man could play. He could pass, he scored important goals, he put his body on the line. He was a much better player than a lot of people give him credit for. Would be my first name on any team sheet

    • @user-ox9ep9ki6h
      @user-ox9ep9ki6h หลายเดือนก่อน

      United fan for 40 years here. He was a true allrounder. No weak sides to any part of the game. Even scored the odd header when he rarely had that sort of chance. When he, as everyone else, had the odd bad day, instead of giving his usual 100% he amped it up to 110 to compensate. You can almost see the steam from his nostrils today when he's been watching someone like Sancho or Rashford with sunken shoulders, slowly walking back while shaking their heads after losing the ball. Had Keano still been playing, a very different kind of shaking would have taken place and words which TH-cam comments does not approve of.

    As a swede I was never ever worried when being drawn against England in the euros or world cup. But if Roy Keane was born in England you would probably have won euro 92, gone far in world cup in 94,win 96 and 2000.
    This is a good way to see what a difference a hard working Irishman will do for a team. If his name is Roy Keane you have arrived at the top of the mountain. As a Milan fan there I have somebody to compare this man to who are just as crazy. Gennaro Gattuso and Roy Keane, the two only world class tough guys that every team mate loves!

    Amazing how all the best players of his era named him as the best including Gerrard and he was the leader of the greatest team, but he is not considered as the best in the media. If he had been English England would have won 2 major trophies and he would be seen as the greatest without question. Because he is Irish he is not. Every player has different traits and his traits were unique which elevated him above the rest. Without a doubt the best player in PL history.

    People talk about Roy Keane as an inspirational captain, a winner and a leader but I still think people underrate him as an actual player. Utd broke the transfer record to sign him from a relegated club for a reason, he was the best young central midfield player in the country at the time. He transitioned from an attacking midfielder to a box to box and then to a DM. He could play RM, CB and RB without any problems. He was exceptional.

    Roy Keane would never be out my team he was a leader abd led by example, box to box player, he could tackle, he could pass short or long and he did the dirty side of the game extremely well and had a goal in him too. He might not be everybody's cup of tea but I love his honesty and if somebody wasn't pulling their weight he'd be on them right away and he gave his everything for the club. The semi-final against Juventus in '99 when he got a yellow card that put him out of the Champions League final and to play how he did and got the team to the final despite knowing he was out typifies everything about his character and the player he was, he was an outright winner. He'll always be a legend to the United supporters and everyone he played with, Captain, Leader, Legend.

    I think the emergence of Paul Scholes in the last ten years as an underrated player has made Keane criminally underrated. He was by far United's best midfielder until his final game in the shirt. Everyone talks about the 99 Champions League final and how we were terrified that Keane wasn't playing he was that important. But Scholes was out for that final too and it's not mentioned. Keane was top 5 in the ballon d'Or that year even though he missed the biggest game.

    United (my team) have had some great players, really great players, but I wonder whether their gradual slide into what to be honest is playing pretty ordinary football didn't begin when Fergie retired in 2013 but a little earlier, in 2005, when Roy Keane left 'by mutual consent'.
    From what I hear Fergie had some reason started to take against him - Roy's habit of always speaking his mind did not help, there was no side to Keane - and that was it. United lost a great player but more than that a great inspiration to the other players.
