It wasn’t too long ago that Roy Keane was sitting atop a pyramid of skulls, beating his chest and letting out a blood curdling scream as the undisputed hard man of the Premier League. Who can forget the classic Roy Keane quote about poor Alfie Haaland:
“I’d waited long enough. I f*cking hit him hard. The ball was there (I think). Take that you c*nt. And don’t ever stand over me sneering about fake injuries.”
Now though, Roy has cleaned up his act, put away the pyramid of skulls, started wearing suits, kept the blood curdling screams to a minumum, pulled on some marigold gloves and got the feather duster out.
According to the Shields Gazette, Keano is unhappy that the Stadium of Light is starting to look a little tatty and has “asked for the seats to be industrially cleaned”- all 49,000 of them. God knows what Sunderland fans have been doing to their seats, was the action so riveting that they couldn’t take a toilet break?
