I think had he behaved himself he might have stayed on another season at United but In the end I think Sir Alex was happy to get rid because of the friction between him and Carlos.

He wasn’t as good as he was before his hip op in 2003 but It’s easy to forget that his last full season in 04-05 was pretty good in terms of his performances. His stats for that season are excellent and he put in some dominant displays in big games at Anfield and Highbury.

It’s also interesting that Brian Clough said he should have dropped back into being a centre back as he got older. There was talk of it after he played really well in a match against Juve as a centre back. I wonder if he could have prolonged his career that way?

Looks like he only got out of bed, and the wrong side to add to that

Just when I can agree with him he comes out and says something stupid like De Gea should be catching that header.

Feck knows how he keeps a straight face when Evra is giggling like a ten year old.

Let’s not go down this route again. They don’t have to be accurate with everything they say and we don’t have to scrutinise all of it

Talking about beating up your goalkeeper is a completely normal way to analyse a game and do punditry, for a grown man.

Maybe it's because he played with schmeichel, who could of caught that

Talks complete sense . I'd love him in the changing room at HT instead of sat doing punditry

Keane spot on at half time. De Gea's mistake was embarrassing, the save he made from Son I expect everyone who calls themselves a goalkeeper to make.

Spot on with Maguire as well.

In fairness he was captain in one the most successful periods in our history. I’d rather take his judgment on it. David needs a kick up the ass, so many individuals errors recently. Sir Alex would have booted him out before the ridiculous pay rise he got.

He may go a bit mental with his words, but he's right with what he's trying to say.
We should expect a certain standard from United players, and we haven't been getting the kind of effort/performances you'd expect.

Roy is a serial winner and he doesn't accept mediocrity.

He's being honest, and there's nothing wrong with that.
