Thought Keane was just being an arsehole to be honest.
I see very little between them other than Keane while at Utd was an excellent footballer as a commentator I think he's no different to Sutton it's all reactionary nonsense for the bite.I think that's very unfair. Sutton says nonsense that he knows will get people annoyed even if he doesn't actually think it himself. He also cannot hide his bias and hatred of us.
Keane has incredibly high standards and thinks pretty much everyone is rubbish but he does, at least, seem to be genuine in his criticisms.
Keane also has experience at the very highest level of football and uses that experience to inform his punditry. Sutton is.....Sutton.
I have always said it, if itwasn’t for the need of 11 players most of these guys would be unemployed.Roy Keane is a fud but he's got high standards and I like that about him. He's right in what he says about internationals too, when you look at some of the players who have caps for their teams when they're lucky to be professionals at all.
Also the one Crouch tells when he thinks he’s billy big baws driving some OTT expensive car and pulls up alongside Keane at the traffic lights. And the look of disgust on Keane’s face was enough for Crouch to ditch the flash car the next day.I loved the story about Keane when was Sunderland manager and was trying to sign Robbie Savage. He rang Savage's mobile number and Savage answered the phone by saying "wassup" and Keane promptly hung the phone up apparently not impressed and the deal was dead in the water.
Love the way Souness just sits back and lets the two idiots argue.
Fantastic analysis eh?
"If you can trap a ball you'll play for your country these days".
It's a bit of a da comment but there's still an element of truth to it. Tbh, I think he knew Redknapp was on the ropes and then steamed in.
The Dyer thing is a good example. He is utterly average yet coasts it for England and Spurs on the basis he looked promising about 4 years back and can ping a switch. He's nowhere near the level for a team who wants to win things.
I thought Redknapp was an excellent player, his body failed him. The Euro 96 game summed up his career, came on at half time and changed the game.....then got injuredDidn’t like Redknapp as player not good enough for Liverpool thinks he was better than he was same for Punditry, Roy Keane beats him on both accounts .
I think Redknapp only got the job at Sky because of his old man; the fact he was one of the embarrassing LFC "Spice Boys"; and, being married to some nondescript pop singer. He certainly didn't get it through his vastly overrated footballing abilities. Keane's punditry almost exclusively revolves around lambasting players' effort. He shows little or no tactical acumen and just likes the sound of his own voice. Today's encounter could go back to the '96 FA Cup Final - I vaguely remember a bit of lip between the pair?Redknapp comes across as someone who doesn’t want to offend anyone. He really is a weak link in the Sky punditry stable.
He needs punted and someone with a bit of backbone brought in.
I like Keane on sky sports punditry but thought he was being a bit of an arse with this. I take his point that just because you're an international, doesn't mean you're automatically a good player. However, Redknapp was talking about regular starters for high ranked teams like Colombia with Davison Sanchez, Alderweireld for Belgium and Reguillon for Spain and they are good players. Granted Sanchez is still developing. To say no Tottenham players get in the Liverpool/City team is not true either. Son, Kane, Alderweireld, Reguillon could get in one or if not, both they teams.He was a bit, but I did find it funny because he clearly knows how to push Redknapps buttons and just wanted to annoy the piss out him. Mission accomplished I’d say.
His point about being an international holds some validity though, just representing your country doesn’t make you a top player.
