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 guar…
 
Now that's what I call timing. In the week that Roy Keane returns to Nottingham Forest (as assistant manager), we focus on his time there as a player. His run-ins with Brian Clough, his evolving style of play, what he learned from Stuart Pearce - Matt Dyson of Absolute Radio and the Gameweek podcast takes us through it all. Fiachra McCarthy mastere…
 
The mighty Paul Ansorge from the best football podcast around, the United Rant Cast, joins Neil in a steamy car in Birmingham to dig into the most important relationship of Roy Keane's footballing life. Sir Alex Ferguson. For a while it was so good. Then it was so, so bad. But it was never less than compelling and we'll talk about why. Check out Pa…
 
Was Roy Keane right to walk out on Ireland at the World Cup? James Foley joins Neil to talk about Saipan, Mick McCarthy, bibs, Roy Keane's part in Ireland's 1990s boom and whether we *actually* could have done better in the tournament if he'd stayed. Thanks so much for listening - this is the end of our first run of episodes but we're really hoping…
 
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 Tr…
 
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" …
 
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…
 
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 set…
 
The first proper episode of Roy Keane Versus looks at the Corkman's time at Manchester United - from fresh-faced record signing in 1993 to "disgraced" exit in 2005. To get the ball rolling, we look at the highlight of his United career: the night when he single-handedly slayed Juventus in the Champions League. (Well, more or less single-handedly, s…
