3 episodes in and they appear to have travelled about 6km from picking Roy up on Navigation Road to the Corner Cafe in Sale...

They make a really good duo... need a fly on the wall documentary where they both manage an amateur football team. It would be like good cop/bad cop.

Summed up how I feel about social media: “Listen, I won’t be on it for much longer”

Yet we both continue to be on it :lol:

Keane is comedy gold, he could genuinely do TV work.

Crouchy better watch his back, there is a new football funny man.

Not surprising to hear Roy pick Verratti as the midfielder he would want to play with! The Scholes regen we never got our hands on.

Didn’t enjoy episode one, it was just Micah’s annoying laugh.

Episode two was good, Keane is very naturally funny.

I watched the first 2 episodes of this earlier and it's very funny I must say. Keane is absolute great and the go off each other very well. I struggle to believe that this is Keane doing this though. :lol: Great choice in favorite film too.

It's so perfect his favourite movie is There Will Be Blood. 'I have a competition in me. I want no one else to succeed. I hate most people.'

Keane is right in ep. 4 about Kanes leadership. Watching that last dance docuseries on Netflix at the minute and they were saying a similar thing in about Michael Jordan and him calling players our for their mistakes during games. You need someone reminding people about the standards, even in your day job.

Great little series that, some genuinely funny bits.

Just watched all of these. Really good fun. These two are great together. Brilliant to hear Keane talk openly and show a more human side

I think Keane is smart, he’s probably mellowed a bit as anyone would do as they get older and achieved what he has.

I genuinely believe though outside of football he’s probably like this, he seems to be one of the mates you have who only opens up to his close people.

I maybe wrong but he’s genuinely a funny guy, no wonder he used to count how many pints he could buy with his salary in the late nineties, he’d be cracking in the pub!

Yeah, Roy comes across as a really nice, interesting and witty guy in these. Micah just laughs very hard and doesn't offer much beyond that. I know some people like him but he grates me and it kinda frustrates me how someone so untalented can make it so big. But good for him, I guess.

Micah offers way more. He is the main reason Keane is participating and opening up. They have a superb chemistry. Great little series this.

Really enjoyed watching these - I've always thought Keane was a lovely bloke underneath it all with a very dry sense of humour and it's great to see Micah bring out that side of him.

He’s a naturally warm and charming guy who seems very relaxed in front of the camera. That’s a talent in itself, which shouldn’t be taken for granted.

It should, really. But we're in a society that idolizes mediocrity, so no surprise there.
Do you think? I would disagree. Loads of ex pros are stilted and wooden on camera. It’s definitely not something that comes naturally to everybody. Demeanour in front of the camera aside he’s definitely got some people skills, hence he charms Roy in a way that not many seem to manage.

Micah is clearly talented at this stuff. You can see him deliberately feeding setup lines to Keane, knowing he’ll be able to make something funny out of them. It’s deceptively difficult to do it well.

:lol:

I've been watching the scenery and they've drove through Sale about 5 times and up through Trafford park a few.

They must have been driving the same roads all day!

Beyond that I think he’s just quite sensible and doesn’t think he knows everything. His comment on wanting to play with Veratti was nice. A slightly left field choice. But then a bit of self reflection when he said they’d probably be rubbish in the same team as they’d be trying to do the same things.

I don’t think he cares about being wrong, and he doesn’t seem to get embarrassed. More than that he probably accepts it’s all just opinions.

That was Keane who said that. Pogue was talking about Richards.
