Have to disagree Rom.  I know you're a Liverpool fan and don't have a good word to say about United.  I've loved United since I was  a kid but can see that you have a fantastic team and deserve to win the league. (There that wasn't hard was it?)

I think Keane is right, how Olly keeps picking this keeper is beyond me.  yes make a couple of howlers in a season but 7 or 8 howlers?  Just pick Romero in goal it's simple Olly.

Harry Maguire another one, yes he's decent enough but look at Van **** he's a mile in front of him so United fans shouldn't rave about the Great Harry Maguire when he's about a 7/10 defender.

Keane's passionate and yes can be outspoken but I agree.  This is Manchester United and the mistakes from the keeper is just ridiculous.

Enjoy your League Title, long overdue.

Couldn't disagree more Rommel.

Keane spot on.

Since DDG pinned down Utd for his monster deal hes been pathetically poor. Similar to keeper that arrived, weak,timid,poor.

Henderson at Sheff utd is imo a far superior goalkeeper right now, never mind next season or whenever.

But hey just making a point, I hope they keep him in and he keeps throwing them in too.

Unfortunately all the players do it.  Hopefully VAR most times gets it right as they can look at it repeatedly but an odd one will slip through the net.

To be fair even the Pen' United got was a bit soft I think.  Was it a Penalty?  I'd say Yes but not exactly a big foul was it.

Report lurka June 22, 2020 9:19 AM BST
He's right as usual but over the top in how he says it. Still some younger folk think he was just an ordinary player. He was a beast of a player, amazing touch, weight of pass and choice of pass - something which will never show on any stats - nearly always chose the right, the smart pass. As Cruyff once said "Playing football is very simple, but playing simple football is the hardest thing there is.”

People talk about Scholes being the best midfielder ever. He looked that good because he had Keane or Butt in there beside him most of the time. Scholes wasn't even a midfielder, he was a striker who turned midfielder and couldn't tackle to save his life. An absolute liability in the tackle, sometimes diving in and missing man and ball he was that rash. Keane was capable of so much more going forward too, but he had a role to play to protect the defence on his own because Scholes wasn't going to protect it one bit.

Same with Gerrard and Lampard. They always had an anchorman like a Makelele or Alonso/Lucas in beside them who made them look a lot better but get zero credit. Makelele was another top class anchorman like Keane, never looked like he did anything special but one of the most important players in the team and massively decorated too. None of Scholes, Gerrard, Lampard them were particularly good defensively or great tacklers. But you won't hear the English media give credit to the foreign guys in beside them or laud them as just as if not more important to the team.

Why do you think England underachieved with 3 of the supposed best midfielders ever all playing at the same time? Because they never had a Keane or a Makelele to play with them and balance the midfield. Instead they tried to shoehorn 2 or 3 of them into the team and the midfield was unbalanced and noen of them looked nearly as good.

Central midfield is the most important area on the pitch and there is no player who can do it all on his own. You need a balanced partnership and you can't give all the credit to just one player without recognising the role of the other.

Report lurka June 22, 2020 1:46 PM BST
Bóllocks he was a water carrier. He was a Rolls Royce of a midfielder, a top midfielder in the world by the age of 20, there's a reason they broke the then transfer fee to sign him and it was a big fee back then especially for a 20yo and the likes of Blackburn and Arsenal wanted him too. He displaced Steve Hodge in the team at Forest in his first season age 19, an England international in his prime, and went straight into central midfield of the champions at 20 and stayed there. You have to be a special player to play central midfield at that level at 20. The likes of Gerrard, Lampard, Beckham, Scholes were nowhere near that level at that age.

He was box to box and only became more defensive to accomodate Scholes who couldn't defend to save his life. For every quote there is about Scholes there's one about Keane and numerous players highlight the accuracy of his passing and say he was the best passer they every played with/against.

People seem to remember him as a sideways passer but he always looked to start attacks and get the ball forward. People also remember him as a dirty player and for the Haaland and Vieira tunnel incidents, when the reality was he was a very disciplined player with Scholes and Vieira being much dirtier and more indisciplined players and it wasn't even Scholes job to tackle. Keane was smart, you'd boot him and he'd get you in the next tackle, he wouldn't react. You'd give Vieira a boot and he'd lose the head and grab you by the throat, much more of a hothead than Keane.

Keane and Makelele are two of the most irreplaceable players in PL history and stand head and shoulders above similar midfielders imo. Every PL winning side has one but those two stand out a mile for me. The likes of Kante and Makelele only reached the top level from about 25 but Keane was doing it from 19/20 onwards.

Best midfielder, best captain and best leader I've ever seen in the PL.

Keane was a water carrier, he did nothing special as a player, he had no natural ability to do things world class players can do, he couldn't dribble with the ball, had no pace, had no technical ability when it came to hitting the ball, making a great Beckham-esque pass, he got it, gave it to better more creative players, got it, gave it to better more creative players. His strengths were hard work, determination, reading the game, all the things you can work at. Signed because Fergie needed that type of person rather than player in the team.

Maguire wont get United the sack, they're generally good performers and United have been on a really good long run, what will get him the sack is if he starts next season poorly and well adrift by Xmas and that'd be most likely because they haven't recruited well, James I don't think is good enough, Lingaard is not United standard and has been there too long, he's more Palace/Southampton level, Pogba will likely leave and they will need a big signing to replace him, but if they're not top 4 that'd be very hard, Maguire needs a Ferdinand type alongside him, De Gea maybe time to move back to Spain, not sure what Fred brings to the party. With the current squad they have they can't finish higher than 3rd, miles of Liverpool and City.
