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.
