What fun these two teams are. I can’t decide if they really hate each other, or if it’s the kind of fake animosity that you get in WWF. Anyway. In all the post-match analysis, one quote from Roy Keane stood out.<br />
If you are Gary Neville, how humiliated do you feel right now? Here is a player who has won every honour at club level, won countless caps for his country, played in some of the most intimidating stadiums around the world. And Keane says this about him:<br />
“Viera is six foot four inches and he is having a go at Gary. I just told him: ‘Come and have a go at me’, it’s as simple as that. If he wants to intimidate our players, Gary is an easy target. I am not having it.”<br />
There you go, Gary. You may have played in Turkey where the England team received death threats, but apparently in the run up to a Premiership match in the badlands of, oooh, North London, you’re an easy target.<br />
And if Roy Keane is sticking up for Gary, who is taking care of little brother Phil?
