Was Roy Keane right to walk out on Ireland at the World Cup?

Rank #3: Roy Keane Versus... The Spice Boys

Podcast cover

The 1996 FA Cup Final is remembered for cream suits, King Eric's late goal and being a stinker of a game. But for football writer Rob Smyth, it's also Roy Keane's second greatest game for United.

He joins Neil to talk about the underrated aspects of Keane's game, the special magic of 1990s football and what question he'd ask Roy if he could be guaranteed an honest answer.

Oh, and those fucking suits.

Rank #7: Roy Keane Versus... Life After United

Podcast cover

Whoa, no language advisory this week! (Although there are a few minor level swears in there, sorry Mam)

Darren Richman joins Neil on the pod this week to talk about Roy's life after United. From pundit to celebrated author, briefly successful manager to cult figure, Roy has worn a variety of hats since that explosive day in 2005 when he left Old Trafford for good.

Is Roy football's answer to Larry David? Would you ask Keano for a seflie? Can he ever patch things up with Fergie? We tackle it all.

This episode, we're talking that tackle on Alf-Inge Håland.

The darkest moment of Roy's career... or the purest expression of everything that makes Roy who he is?

Journalist and United fan Chris Hemmings joins Neil to talk about the macho side of Keane, from reducers to skinhead haircuts. They also debate whether Keane really was a true "hard man" and Chris makes the case that walking Triggs was one of the most macho things Roy ever did.

Chris is the author of Be A Man: How Macho Culture Damages Us And How To Escape It.

Rank #9: Roy Keane Versus... Modern Football

Podcast cover

Modern life might be rubbish, but modern football is worse. Or is it?

This week radio presenter/producer/whizzkid Claire Solan joins host Neil to count down the most cutting Keano comments about the evolution of the modern game. Diving, superstar wages, breastfeeding. Was Roy right? Was he wrong?

Will Neil ever eat a prawn sandwich and not think of Roy's scowling face?

We also dig into some behind-the-scenes drama at Roy Keane Versus. Because Claire wasn't supposed to be the guest on this episode… but, as so often happens with Roy, you have to expect the unexpected. Stick around to the end to hear things get a bit emotional.

Rank #10: Roy Keane Versus... Patrick Vieira

Podcast cover

Yes, we've already spent far too long looking at the moment Roy Keane and Patrick Vieira clashed in the Highbury tunnel. But now it's time to focus on all the other aspects of their dynamite rivalry.

Who was better? Who had a bigger impact on the Premier League? And 13 years after they last played for Manchester United and Arsenal, why are both sets of fans still hung up on these "best of enemies"?

Arsenal fan Jelena Milosavljevic joins Neil to talk about all that and more, including but not limited to: the Battle of the Buffet, the Battle of Old Trafford, and the Battle for Ruud van Nistelrooy's soul.

Fiachra McCarthy mastered the episode, Derek Doyle did our logo and Don Eke provided invaluable production support.
