    To be fair, Keane has always put Liverpool up there as the milestone for greatness. He said as much in his book. He may have become a scum icon, but always had respect for the great Liverpool teams on how to be successful year after year after year.

    Roy needs to focus on RoI's next two matches.

    We can do it Mike. Eriksen will be a threat but I have faith.

    ManU isn't going to win anything either. At least we are doing this "honestly" and without bags of money behind us. And we are much better to watch than MancU.

    He's a closet Liverpool fan.

    “It was tongue in cheek,” said Keane, speaking ahead of Republic of Ireland's World Cup play-off against Denmark this weekend.

    “Anyone who has ever spoken to me about football will tell you the huge respect I have for Liverpool. I grew up watching them in the 80s winning leagues every year.

    “My comments were tongue in cheek and hopefully people will see it that way. People should lighten up a little.”

    I would think we would be one of the best teams to watch. Score 3 goals, then blow a three goal lead....as a neutral it would be great fun.

    Sorry Rosso, I dont like to disagree with you on much but Keane is not your typical ex-pro. He was driven by excellence and berated those who didn’t do likewise as a result people tend to love him or hate him. He won quite a bit at united but feels no debt to them and will dish it out to them in equal measure. And I say again; he is the only man to call ferguson for what he is. For that alone he has my full respect.
    “Mean herd of old shoes” - thats a new one on me Rosso!

    I really dont think he has any animosity towards Liverpool, just because he played for united. He will always be a tad abrasive but he respects standards as his quote on your post shows.

    I think we have a decent shot mate. Won't be for the want of trying.

    no respect for an alleged pundit and former Manure captain stating that as a neutral actually he would not watch us even if we were playing in his back garden!!

    we play by far a better football than United actually, it's as clear as that, our position in the table has nothing to do with the quality of football we express,

    and his admission doesn't make other than stoking further controversy,

    absolutely despicable statement!

    I have no doubt they are asked to do it by editorial staff. Especially for Liverpool and a few others. Keane would have known the Shanks quote no doubt.

    Older fans of the club have told me that's how we used to win titles. With 2nd half wins.
    Very true. The biggest difference between now and then was the belief we would win every game, eventually wearing down the opposition. There used to be a cliche that the Kop would suck the ball into the net when required.

    Well Keano - I'd love to see you analyse one of the most turgid performances I have ever seen in Football last Saturday night. The Denmark - Ireland game was diabolical!
    And you have the cheek to say you wouldn't watch Liverpool?

    I suppose ‘horses for courses’ is the obvious response, or at least, as I would see it. Ireland do not have the players, nor manager, to play it any other way really. It is a fair criticism of Liverpool to say that we should be a better balanced side in terms attack and defense given our options as a Club.
    Nonetheless it was a stupid comment by Keane and possibly one he regrets.

    Now that's a team I wouldn't watch if they were playing in my back garden - and I'm Irish. Would love to have seen them at WC as they always seem to give a good account of themselves at tournaments (Euro 2012 aside), but let's be honest - they're torture to watch, especially during the last qualifying campaign.

    It's a revelation.

    CorkDork is Irish.

    It was either that, or you came a cropper with a champagne bottle and never lived it down.
