by | 7th, October 2014



YOU read the first tirade of extracts from Roy Keane’s second autobiography, The Second Half, now read more of the former Manchester United captain’s ghost-written barbs, as seen in The Second Half. The third autobiography will surely be called Fergie Time, followed by Walks With My Dog, Who’ Is AFeckin’ Good Listener.

On Patrick Vieira:
