Vinnie Jones Betting Tips
Those guys and girls at Easyodds have been at it again.
We’ve had my best five-a-side team, managers I’d like to have played for, and my friendship with Gazza.
So who’s next? Roy Keane, that’s who!
What can I say about Keano? Well, he’s absolutely one of football’s hard men. He put the fear of God into some teams and some players were definitely side-tracked by their battles with him - and that played into his hands.
Even some of his battles for Man United against Arsenal with Patrick Viera overshadowed the actual matches and more often than not it was United who came out on top - the Gooners’ invincible season aside!
Ferguson takes a lot of the credit, of course, in his own battles with Arsene Wenger, but Keano was Sir Alex’s go-to man, his captain, his general.
Their relationship has unfortunately soured since, we know, but at its height they were a formidable duo. Cantona might have been United’s talisman, but Keano laid the foundations for his artistry - and laid the foundations for success at Old Trafford.
That success culminated with the iconic Champions League win in 1999, a match Roy was suspended from playing in having run Juventus ragged in the semis. Remember, it was his goal which brought the teams level in the second leg before being booked. He took one for the team and without him they’d not have made the final in Barcelona. The rest is history.
I came up against a young Roy Keane just a handful of times - and right from our first meeting I laid down a marker. I tried a headbutt on his knackers in a match for Wimbledon against United at Plough Lane - he probably thought I was nuts, literally!
And in my experience on the pitch I wouldn’t say he was the hardest I’d played with or against, far from it.
I’ve spoken about ‘Big Bad Billy’ Whitehurst and the likes of Julian Dicks, Fash the Bash, ‘Big Dunc’ Ferguson, Souness and Steve McMahon before and Roy was on the bench for my Hard Man XI, if you remember.
But there’s a distinct difference between those lads and him.
Quite simply, Keano was the best.
He might’ve had a hard man image, but make no mistake he could play. Roy was world class on the pitch, absolutely brilliant. A box-to-box midfielder with a major goal threat. He was a leader - and a winner - and was the first name you’d put on the teamsheet. Simples.
Nowadays, of course, people just see him as a no-holds-barred pundit - and he’s f*cking good at that. Okay, sometimes you think he could ruck in an empty room, but who am I to have issues with that?!
Kick on Keano, keep on keeping on. I love it.
Some great Champions League action has underlined what fantastic form Liverpool are in just now, Mo Salah especially.
They’re probably playing like champions more than City, Chelsea, and certainly United, and therefore have to be fancied to roll over Ole’s men in a humdinger of a Sunday match between Man United and Liverpool at Old Trafford.
Could this be make or break for Solskjaer? Beat Liverpool and him and the team can kick on, but defeat at home to their arch rivals could be one defeat too many for the Old Trafford fans and, more importantly, the hierarchy there.
With Ronaldo sure to feature - from the start! - this looks a cracking encounter with plenty riding on it. But after that impressive midweek effort against Atletico I’m going with the scousers to do the mancs - but either way it’s a must watch.
Check out the rest of my predictions below.
We hit the bar with Collin Morikawa in the CJ Cup at the gorgeous The Summit Club in Vegas last week. He shot a blinding ten-under final round, but finished one shot behind Rory, who roared back to form with a cracking tournament win. Fair play him.
Morikawa is back in action this week in The ZOZO Championship and I reckon he’ll go close again. Take him along with Will Zalatoris and Lanto Griffin, while best in the Mallorca Open could be Laurie Canter, Adri Arnaus and Pablo Larrazabal.
