Hard as nails, but a nutter - Roy Keane
Member Name: JEStevens
Advantages: Hard as nails, commited
Disadvantages: regarded as a dirty player, not a nice man, maybe a bit big headed
Born on the 10th of august 1971 in cork roy keane has since risen to become one of the most highly rated and ledgendary middfielders in manchester united's and the newly formed premierships history.
Signed by united for £3.75 million in 1993, a then club and national record, from nottingham forest. he made his debut for Man U against one of the best clubs in the land at the time, Norwich city, and this performance, amongst those following it personified all that was bout roy keane.
Roy keane also has versatility on his side, although his ideal position is in central midfield dictating the play he has also played in defence and all over midfield. his passion and commitment for the game lead him to giving it his all in every tackle, every pass.
there have however been certain aspects of his game that many manchester united fans will happily glaze over, his temperament has lead to him having a reputation not quite of brutality but of ruthlessness - an aspect that should be foreign in a game of sportsmanship.
having said that there is not a team in the world that would not have had roy keane in their 1st XI when he was at the peak of his powers and i truly believe he deserves the title of a manchester united ledgend - if only he'd have chosen a better club to start with.
Summary: Good, But ruthless tackler
