I’m calling this the worst take on Roy Keane’s yellow card against Juventus and I challenge anyone to raise an argument that proves otherwise.
Thanks to Scott Patterson of Republik of Mancunia (@R_o_M), this footage was brought to my attention this afternoon.
Nathan Murphy, an Irish sports broadcast and member of Off The Ball, issues the worst take on Keane’s yellow card against Juventus by comparing it to Steven Gerrard’s slip against Chelsea which cost Liverpool the Premier League title in 2014.
‘Roy Keane’s Juventus-yellow was his answer to Gerard’s slip’ | @nathanmurf
Do you agree? 🤔

Liverpool lost to Jose Mourinho’s side before squandering a three-goal lead against Crystal Palace a week later to draw 3-3 and hand Manchester City an advantage.
Keane’s performance that night versus Juventus was the best individual performance from a United in the last 20-years at the very least. Needless to say the Red Devils went on to win the European Cup to complete the treble that season.
I don’t know how Murphy keeps a straight face but perhaps he believes his own rubbish?
